My Photos

 

My passion for photography blossomed in the spring of 2013. Since then I've developed a collection of many thousands of photos. I am currently in the process of moving my favorites off of social media and onto this website.

Early April Blooms

I love taking walks to see what's blooming. This week there is bloodroot, scilla, periwinkle, spring beauties, and forsythia, among others. The skunk cabbage leaves are sprouting up and more trees are producing blossoms. The bluebells are getting ready, looking mostly pink at the moment. We also caught a duck taking a nap!

Out and About in New Orleans

Here is a miscellany of my photos from in and around New Orleans. The blurry shot was a happy accident at Mardi Gras. The houses are random, found on an afternoon walk. I spotted the ships along the Mississippi during a visit to Crescent Park in 2015. The last two photos are from Woodland Plantation, a bed-and-breakfast about an hour's drive southeast of the city.

Signs of Spring at Jacobus Park

Spring arrives slowly in Wisconsin; we can have cold temps and snow well into April. But signs of spring are everywhere when you look closely! Below: trillium, tree buds, Virginia waterleaf, skunk cabbage, bluebells, and local wildlife. Credit to my family members for the last three photos; they shared their pics on a day my camera batteries ran out. The last flowers are winter aconite and snow drops.

Whitney Plantation

If you travel to New Orleans , please make time to visit the Whitney Plantation. The museum, an hour's drive west of the city, teaches about enslaved peoples and the history of slavery in southern Louisiana. The museum tour is a sobering experience, most appropriately so. I took these photos during my visit there in April, 2019. For more information, please visit: https://www.whitneyplantation.org/
