In a recent comment someone asked . . .

Why so much of what I photograph abandoned?

Simple. Abandoned places, churches, old schools, farm houses, ghost towns, and cemeteries are the subjects that most appeal to me. Not just any abandoned place, a lot of them are junk. It has to be interesting. I like visiting places that are off the main routes and take a bit of effort to get to. I like local history as well, a lot of places started and died off without much being known at all.

I like landscape shots and love waterfalls. I am always on the lookout for a good wildlife shot. I would love to get a good shot of a skunk. I admire people that can do great photos of people. Taking shots of people never seems to result in an image that I like. I am never happy with the result. 


  1. My sentiments exactly, only my medium is fabric and yours is photography. Pictures of people don't hold the same appeal.

  2. There is beauty and truth in age and decay -- wabi sabi, as the Japanese call it.

  3. Your commentary seems very reasonable to me. Keep on doing it your way.

  4. Love your abandoned buildings,farms ,schools . Look at it and think What might have been
