One of my favorite pics

I take pictures all the time. Lots and lots of pictures of all different kinds of things. I often find that the simpler the subject, the more I love it. And if it looks stellar in black and white, I love it even more.

There’s something to a black and white photo. It simply and effectively filters out all the noise and boils the photo down to its simplest story. I took the photo below outside of Nationwide Arena on my way to work one day. This was the only leaf on the sidewalk, all by itself, having fallen from the safety of its home onto the busy bricks, where the traffic of a noisy day would eventually sweep it away.

It’s perfect shape and being against the man made bricks caught my eye, and so I captured it with my camera. I often find myself just staring at it, lost in wonder at the natural beauty against the cold, hard world. It’s one of my favorite photos of all time.

Welcome to my website and blog! I’m so glad to have you along for the journey. Please feel free to share your thoughts and stories with me any time ~ I’m always up for a good tall tale or a heartfelt saga.

I hope, in turn, you’ll enjoy a few of my yarns, too. Storytelling is my love and passion. I put my adventures, romances, triumphs, and tragedies, out there in writing, on film, or as a piece of art. If it’s a way to tell a story, I want to be part of it ~ and probably already am.

Enjoy yourself, and by all means, share your thoughts and feelings with me anytime, either here or at
