Being There

I remember my first business trip after my daughter was born. She was about six months old at the time. I needed to fly to Dubai for a week. Mind you, this was before the ubiquity of easy international phone calls, much less video conferencing. As the song line goes, leaving really is the hardest […]

Portland in Photos

A few images capture during my annual trip to Portland, Maine, for Redmonk’s Monktoberfest conference. I skirted off I-95 to catch the setting sun and rising moon off of York Beach and made it to Cape Neddick’s Nubble Lighthouse in time to give the near-full moon a try. The next day took me out onto […]

Make What You Do Matter

James Governor recently published a post titled, “Only One Thing Matters Today.” That one thing was the devastation in Puerto Rico. And then the horrific terrorist attack in Las Vegas became another one thing in a seemingly ongoing river of one things. James is right, though. Only one thing does matter. That thing is humanity.

Who Inspires You?

This is not a Bruce Springsteen post (okay, maybe it is a little bit). I was going through my newsfeed this morning and this interview with Bruce popped up. It’s a good interview and an interesting subject, but I was more drawn to the portraits in the piece. I went to the photographer’s website (a […]

So Many Sunflowers

A lot of photographers will tell you it’s the camera that makes great pictures. Others will tell you it’s not the equipment, but the eye behind the lens. Both have their detractions and merits. Do you want to know what really allows a photographer to make a great image? The discipline to wake up before […]

This Is Our Town

  I moved to Doylestown 13 years ago. At the time, all I really knew about the town was that it looked quaint. It looked like a small town you might see in a travel magazine. Or a Norman Rockwell painting. It looked, well, it looked like a town that would be a great place […]

Scene de la vie de boheme skate punk

I’m not a great person to walk around a city with. I see things. I stop. A lot. That’s what happened on Bainbridge Street in Philadelphia when I paused to talk with an interesting human sitting on a bench who caught my eye. He exuded a bohemian irie vibe that my lens found impossible to […]

Sure, Why Not?

Yes. It’s a small word with humongous power. Three letters with the potential to unlock a world of opportunity. I believe it was Sir Richard Branson who first encouraged people to enthusiastically reply “Yes!” to every opportunity in front of them. My version of Sir Richard’s mantra is “Sure, why not?” Why not open yourself […]

Faces of Gluecon

To most people, a photograph is a two dimensional thing. To me, the good ones have depth. They tell stories that bring out the texture of the subject within the frame. The really good ones make you want to know the rest of the story. The images below are a small sample of the people […]

TC3 at the TLA

Everyone knows the devil went down to Georgia. Only a few know he drove there in a Cadillac. This past Friday night, a trio of long haired good ole boys took the stage at Philadelphia’s famed Theater of Living Arts, rocking a capacity crowd with a sound best described as ZZ Top meets Kenny Chesney […]
