After an early morning walk to the local bakery, a side diversion home up a muddy alley way lead to the discovery of this lovely transitory moment.
“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.”

One of the unforeseen developments in my move to Bend, Oregon was the discovery of these amazing rice and wheat granaries along the I-5 corridor of Northern California. While using similar functional components, no two granaries are alike. They differ in structure, age, and orientation, opening up a myriad of photographic possibilities inspiring my interest in creating abstraction out of “common” subject matter.
A mere 13 miles north of my humble Bend abode, lies Tumalo Falls, an 89-foot vertical curtain of year-round waterfall splendor. I’m looking forward to photographing the falls in the winter when a 2.5 mile hike over a closed dirt road may offer some pristine opportunities.
I’m excited to be a part of a group show, Timeless: The White Mountains, running September 5 – October 12 at PHOTO in Oakland, California. There’s an artist reception Saturday, September 7 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. If you live in the Bay Area, hope to see you there!
