Yet another Dispatch from Green-Wood. What's new? During this walk I post a small challenge to myself and the rest of you. Also chat a little about my foray into bird photography.

Dispatches from Green-Wood 8

Another walk and talk through Green-Wood Cemetery today. This time I'm talking mostly about my addiction to buying lenses during the pandemic and I dive into a couple old stories. It's what I do. :-) Look for the photos I mention in the show here

Dispatches from Green-Wood, No. 7

Well, I think I've done enough shows from Green-Wood Cemetery to now officially name these segments "Dispatches from Green-Wood." This is dispatch number seven (who knows if I've done six previous ones). So, these are my thoughts about pinhole lenses and how I try to keep my foot in the photography world every day.

Chat with Dan Bailey

This episode I had the great honor of speaking with adventure photographer Dan Bailey. Lately I've been binging his YouTube videos and after I saw enough I realized I needed to talk to this guy. His photography is incredibly compelling and his desire to share his knowledge (through workshops, books and his videos) and inspiring outlook on life is equally so. I had a great time talking to Dan and expect him back on the show sometime in the near future.

For The Trees

Things have quieted down a little allowing me some mental space to record a new episode. This show I'm talking about how our relationship with equipment, lenses, apps are quite symbiotic when it comes to sharing our vision with the world. Does the equipment drive us to see the world differently or does it make what we see clearer? Good question, I think. 

Kids and Chairs

Been a while since the last show and I'm taking a walk around Green-Wood again to explain what's going on. Also, a bit of a special treat as some great fourth graders were tasked with writing (very) short stories about a couple of my images, included below. A wonderful treat to have one's images the subject of budding imaginations. So wonderful.

Cooped Up

Like you, I'm cooped up at home with not much to do. Been working at my remote job and that's been keeping me busy. Busy enough to delay publishing this episode. Well, here it is. I hope I can keep you company for a short while.

Paying a small tribute to my late friend and photographer, Robert Herman. I recorded this as a YouTube video as well.
