A Good Dawn

May 7, 2018

“Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees, the forms and colours of things are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern.” – Oscar Wilde

Happy Monday morning, everyone. 🌻

Morning Fruit

January 2, 2018

Because I shot it in the morning, but it could also be afternoon fruit or evening fruit depending on when you decided to eat it. Or if you’re my Yittle it might be definitely eating the cherries, trying the blackberries but as soon as you hit a tart one, you’re out and, completely ignoring the green grapes fruit. That seems a little long but whatever. 😉

 

Happy Tuesday, folks!

What a night!

December 11, 2017

This past Saturday night we were able to celebrate with another gallery showing for another winner, artist/photographer and member of KelbyOneSteve Wallace. Steve is an anesthesiologist, a lawyer, a talented photographer (with a goal), and KelbyOne member. His magical Myanmar images and artist’s talk delighted everyone that attended and watched around the world. His photography inspired us to want to engage with other cultures in a more subtle and human way, and his talk was fascinating, fun and thoughtful. If you missed it, you can watch it at this KelbyOne link. I’d like to thank Steve (right), his lovely wife, Becky (left) and all the members who showed up to The Gallery at KelbyOne and made the night so special.

Steve explains how he manages that magical light.

Who wants to be this cool? Everyone! Meredith Duffin was calling the shots in the control room and making it look easy.

I’d also like to thank BayPhoto for always providing such beautiful prints, and the KelbyOne team because I don’t think there is a person in the building who doesn’t touch this effort in some way and I’m grateful for them as well. From individuals like Viktor Garcia (my right-hand man when it comes to the gallery) to Pam Suttmiller in accounting (who helps create a beautiful wine and cheese presentation) to our excellent video, marketing, graphics, and web teams. Heck, even our editors are tweeting about it! Haha! Everyone has a hand in it, and that’s not even counting the selection and judging process (loads of help coordinating all of that from Mr. Erik Kuna) to arranging the travel and accommodations for all the winners (thank you, Jeanne Jilleba). So many hands on so many things and I’m so very grateful—thank you.

We gathered, we celebrated, and we promised that we’d all do it again. I like that about us.

A best friend…

October 13, 2017

A best friend is someone who lets you venture out or someone who lets you stay close to the shore. Whichever friend you are there is no judgment in love—you just need to stand together in life’s current. I like that about best friends. 💛

Yesterday was fun — especially the flare!

August 22, 2017


The first two images were taken with the selfie lens on my iPhone7plus. I wasn’t planning on using that lens but I started experimenting with it at the first phase of the Eclipse and I really liked it. The final image is the more expected (and cropped) 82% Eclipse that we experienced here in the Tampa Bay area. We had a lot of fun at the office celebrating with a cookout and trying all sorts of ways to shoot the event. I hope you all had a good time too!
