Complications can create obstacles and obstacles can get in the way of fixing what needs fixing, achieving what we want or reaching the heights we dream of. I know that the power to achieve your goals and make positive changes in your life can seem […]

Hungry For Change

Thumbnail image for Hungry For Change by Valli Keller

                                I’m a life-long carb-o-holic.  As a child, our house usually had home-baked cakes, cookies or pies hanging around.  Homemade ice cream was a summer staple.  I have always measured the holidays by what candy was my favorite for that […]

NEWS!

Thumbnail image for NEWS! by Alexandra Wallace

There’s a reason last year that I decided to take on the challenge of making a photograph each day – it motivates you to keep practicing your craft, whether you feel like it or not in the moment. This year, with the [fifty two weeks.] project I’ve taken some photos I’m pretty happy with, but […]

The Photograph

Thumbnail image for The Photograph by Brooke Leigh Sheldon

This picture arrived in my email box the other day. When I saw it, I was struck by the emotions it conveyed. In writing this I thought about the numerous ways I could attempt to offer you the profundity I find in the photograph. However, each time I would look back at the shot, I […]

People I’ve Met Along The Way: Stan Kenton

Thumbnail image for People I’ve Met Along The Way:  Stan Kenton by John W Strobel III

Some the earliest recollections of my childhood are of watching my dad play the banjo, saxophone and drums. He and my mother were children of the 1920’s Flapper Era but, both being musicians, they adapted to swing and the syncopated jazz big band sounds of the early thirties and forties. My dad settled on drums […]

Bald is Beautiful

A group of American women got together with the idea of redefining the concept of beauty. Men can be blond, brown, red, white and… bald. Why not women? I photographed them in New York as they were that day and I collected their stories too. Some of them have alopecia, some have been through chemotherapy, others […]

Far from just revealing a tree’s age, they record natural events like volcano eruptions, the history of civilizations like the Roman and Aztec Empires and other moments in time.

Thumbnail image for Red Tails – the film even George Lucas almost couldn’t make by Thomas Norman DeWolf
