Common weed or intrinsic beauty?

The common Dandelion. Millions of dollars are spent every year spraying toxic chemicals in an attempt to free green grassy lawns of this plant. Yet, it is not only a fascinating, beautifully detailed plant, it is also quite healthful when taken internally as a part of a good health/preventative medicine supplement to the diet.

I find tremendous beauty in the simplest of subjects. There is amazing detail in the most humble things all around us.

Monochromatic Coast

So often, our northern pacific coast is very monochromatic. It seemed to fit this image of Battery Point, off the northern California coast.

Early morning light offers tremendous opportunities to capture nature’s beauty.

Nothing like a rose.

Low evening sun made this tulip glow.

Shanita is a dear friend. I met her when she was four years old and a student in my Sunday school class. I had the honor and pleasure of shooting her wedding recently. We all had quite a lot of fun.

Waves is an album of music I created in the autumn of 2010 through the autumn of 2011. This music is atmospheric, ambient and highly experimental.

Many of the sounds I use, I have processed in one way or another which often makes that sound unrecognizable in my tracks from their original recordings. Ambient Monks, for example, is largely based around a recording of monks, singing in a church somewhere in Russia, and provided to me by gentlemen I met at

I took those simple recordings and cut them to pieces, drastically changed their “speed”, reversed sections, adjusted the pitch of others to build harmonies that did not exist in the original recording. The result is… well, that will be up to you, the listener to decide.

Please listen with a quality sound system or a decent set of earbuds/headphones. There are many subtleties to the sound that will be missed otherwise. Alternatively, being this music falls into the genre of Ambient music, you could turn it on and walk away, allowing these sounds to fill your space with an atmospheric background.

Sit back, relax and allow your imagination to flow.

Oregon coast

I love the Oregon coast. It is a beautiful place, full of image opportunities.

My great-nephew, many years ago, contemplates the vastness of the universe.

Bandon, Oregon rocks!
