Bauer Bowl with Clementines (2008)
Digital Photography. There is a table in my kitchen with absolutely magicalafternoon light. This vintage bowl, gifted to me by a generous friend, can usually be spotted there filled with an ever-changing assortment of fruit. To me, this is a modern-day still life.

Ritual (2016)
Digital photography. An early morning pilgrimage to the sacred Ganges River in India. The bathers are lost in reverie and ritual, only the eyes of the young woman in this photo met my lens.

Behind the scenes in Mykonos (2018)
Digital photography. On a quiet morning before the cruise ships arrived in Mykonos. Beauty is everywhere, sometimes even when you are doing the laundry.
