Gallery Descriptions

    My family moved out of Oklahoma in 1967. I have returned many times to revisit familiar areas and discover other locations that exemplify the unique characteristics of the state. Oklahoma is one of those regions where traces of the past are never far from the persistent present. While some of these images reflect a personal connection to this area, all reveal aspects of our American identity.

Kansas, Missouri
    Pictures from travels around these states.

Kansas City
    Observations since moving back to Kansas City in 2014.

Storefronts and Facades
    As I explore America, I come across interesting storefronts and facades of buildings that display traces of their history. Some seem to be abandoned, while others are being renovated. Besides the colors and textures of surface, I am attracted to the choices of window treatments.

    All but one of these images is from a 2018 trip.

South and East
Impressions from road trips to visit friends and attend conferences.

Land, Sky, Water
    Various environmental scenes.

Looking Down

Miscellaneous - Multiples
    An assortment of related images combined on a single print. Some deal with time, some as metaphor, a few just fit together.

Parks and Sites
    Views of places that have been set aside for tourism.

Urban Scenes
    Some unusual scenes found in more urban environments.

The Pursuit of Happiness
    I went through a long period where I frequented bars and parties. Presumably, we were all chasing some kind of fun and social camaraderie. Most of these pictures were shot without looking through the camera viewfinder.

New York City
