Road Trips

My friends and I recently took two short road trips. On the first day we visited Solomon’s Island and Maryland’s only remaining cypress swamp.  At Solomons, we visited the Calvert Marine Museum, the Oyster Museum, and strolled the island a bit.  At the Swamp, we walked along the boardwalk, explored the museum, and hiked to […]

One Thousand Wishes

Me and Great Grandpa

Or is it great great grandpa?  I call him pap and he calls me Emmett.  Sounds kind of like lobble, lobble, lobble, but I know what he means.  We’re just hanging out today.


This is a type of pheasant, but I don’t recall the exact brand of pheasant.  It belongs to some friends of ours.  I was absolutely fascinated by it – the colors, the fact that it was walking around loose and yet stayed there in the yard.  Also I was amazed by its wing flapping.  I […]

A very good day

It was a swell day. It has been a pretty busy time and it actually has absolutely nothing to do with the Christmas.  The documentary is due to be completed this month.  We’ve decided not to take the “Film Festival” route.  We’re getting too many calls and requests for the DVD.  So we’re going to […]

A little of this, a little of that

A Canon 5D MKII, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, and some video footage for the sides of the cube. I have this idea in my mind that I’d like to have a cube hovering over someone’s hand and that it would have video clips on each side. I want to manipulate it – make it spin, […]

The photo that didn’t compete.

Even though my site is supposed to be about art, the other parts of my life are so woven into my art that it’s not possible to pull out just one fiber.  Tonight I went to our local camera club and I was going to enter one of my photographs in the monthly competition.  It […]

Cart before the horse

Now that filming is complete for the documentary on sustainable farming, it’s time to change the focus of my work.  Some next steps are to get videos of varying lengths ready to submit to film festivals, TV producers, and for DVD sales.  The sustainable farmer for this documentary is Allen Heirloom Homestead, owned by Christina […]

A bend in time

WAITING This is a photograph I took at a reenactment in Gettysburg.  While most people were there to see the battle, I was there for the story, for the whole story.  That meant observing not only the battle itself, but seeing the way soldiers lived at that time.  What happened between the battles. Waiting has […]

Whew! Filming is complete!

Filming for the documentary is finished.  I filmed on Friday from 7:30 am to … well, I ended up spending the night in the cottage on the farm, because I was too exhausted to drive home.  I’m glad I stayed, because it gave me one more chance to do some early morning filming.   Christina, […]
