Hello All,

I just wanted to drop a quick line to let you know that I have a new show of my photography opening tonight at Through This Lens gallery in Durham, NC. The show is titled, “Under These Stones: Vanishing Reflections of Rural North Carolina”, and it represents the first major show of my work in over three years. Piedmont Restaurant will be catering the reception which runs from 6-9 p.m., and the show itself will run through the end of December. Below is a link to the web page I have created for the show, and also there is a link to the Through This Lens gallery website. Hope to see you there!

Ferris Wheels

Ah, to be a kid again...nothing like that sinking feeling of your stomach in your throat...I shot this image at the NC State Fair on a beautiful fall evening; it was one of 5 this year. I do wonder sometimes what happens when they are tearing this thing down, moving to a new place, reassembling it, and then realizing at the end that they have a bolt or two left over..."You mean it costs 10.00 for a one minute ride, and on top of that I could die?! Sounds like fun!!"


O.K. so maybe I'm in a bit of a cynical mood today, now that we don't have the election to brood over any more, I wonder what we're all going to do with our leftover angst. I keep expecting someone to pinch me and say, "there was a problem with a few of the ballots in Florida..." It seems like its been forever since we had a democratic process that actually worked the way its supposed to. Kind of makes me feel like getting on this Ferris Wheel just to relive the sensation one more time...anyway hope you enjoy the art.
