Abandoned in Blackwater
Photography on metal

Capturing breathtaking images of migrating Tundra Swans at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge or lingering herons camouflaged in the reeds along the Potomac inspires me.
As a photographer in this era, I want to record the historic changes shaking our nation. In recent months, I have been exploring street and protest photography in Washington, D.C. And I have been expanding to cover the impact of climate change on the environment.
With my digital camera as a paintbrush, I strive to capture the light streaming through the glistening waters and the shadows coloring the hidden woods. Nature is unpredictable so I study the sun, brace for the wind and hike along the shores.
I have spent years gathering a portfolio of images reflecting the hidden treasures of our region. My photos have appeared in galleries in the Washington, D.C., area, where I have worked for decades as a journalist and photographer.
