    My favorite photos of 2019

    Every year, I post my favorite photos. Some years, I’ve been able to cut it down to my top ten, but not this year. For that matter, I couldn’t limit myself to fewer than eleven photos from Cannon Beach… :-D Many years, I’ve also posted my top nine from Instagram, but again, not this year,…

    Human Reef

    For my fifth day in a week of nature photography, I chose a picture of the downtown Portland waterfront. You might think this isn’t nature. If so, I have a few points: Humans are not outside of nature. We are as much a part of nature as any other species. Would you consider an anthill…

    Portland Photowalk

    Jamison wanted a ride to the east side this morning, so I played taxi driver. While waiting for Jamison to get done, I walked Portland with Ashley’s camera. :-)
