I've been having fun for the past three years putting this blog together, and I hope all of you have enjoyed the 171 images that have been posted thus far.
One of the things I've enjoyed the most was posting a short essay along with the photograph to support the image. I often refer to these as "The story behind the scene."
Regardless of how many times I view these images, It's as if I were seeing them again for the first time, and that immediately triggers all sorts of interesting details, many of which I pass along to you, the viewers.
This coming Monday, an exhibition of my Appalachian Collection will be open to the public at the Virginia Historical Society Museum in Richmond, VA. You can read a short description about the show on the second image down from this one.
Last month I turned 78, and I am happy to say that I am still activelyheading into the mountains and the nearby desert to document the beauty of the western landscape. You will see many of these new images throughout the blog.
