Welcome to one way I share my photography hobby. With a nod to Margaret Wolfe Hungerford who said, Beauty is in the Eye of The Beholder, my goal is to take pictures that have feeling. My hope is that the viewer will perhaps connect with a photo or two on some level. Click on the image to view it in a larger size on a separate page.

Night Play

Recently, I bought a new 35mm lens.  The majority of these photos were taken with that lens, which is a very "fast" lens, meaning it collects light very well at wide-open apertures and allows me to more easily take nighttime photos without using a tripod.  With the exception of the 2nd and 3rd photos from the end, all of these were hand held.  I hope you enjoy them.

Gelly's Pub in Stockholm Wisconsin

On the same October evening I shot Gelly's Pub, we parked the motorcycles and took this picture of the remnants of the sunset and the Big Dipper over Lake Pepin.  This shot is facing northwest towards Old Frontenac.

Thanks for looking!
