This gallery is a revolving collection of recently acquired images as well as older images pulled from the archive in order to give them an opportunity to be seen.
This gallery is devoted to an ongoing series of light manipulation images. The digital cameras of today offer a unique ability to manipulate and experiment with light and color and the results are often engaging and surprising.
This gallery highlights an ongoing series of images of a small, iconic wood shed outside Big Spring, Texas. Many of the images are from the exact same vantage point capturing the changing seasons and yet the wood shed remains.
The series captures the spirit of defiance and strength of the small shed withstanding the elements of the wide open plains of West Texas. The beauty of the changing sky and the power of the flatlands attempt to capture this tough, subtle landscape.

This gallery highlights a small selection of an ongoing series. The images capture the everyday, common structures of West Texas and yet each one is unique and interesting. The images are all taken straight on as a frontal elevation much like a portrait attempting to capture the face presented to the viewer. At this stage, I have thousands of these structures so this gallery represents a small sampling of what has been captured.
These images stand on their own but also can be combined as a montage to great effect. This can be seen in the images of the show that was on display at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts and the Elevation exhibition at the LHUCA (Lubbock).

This gallery illustrates an ongoing series that is an attempt to capture the strange beauty of the flatlands of the West Texas plains. This tough, rugged environment is often described as monotonous or even ugly yet this stance fails to recognize a more subtle beauty and the promise of ever changing skies that make each scene change daily or even by the minute, sometimes dramatic, other times quiet and restrained.
In many images, a lone object or isolated elements rise up majestically showing how this environment is both uplifting and lonely at the same time. Writers have said this environment does not allow pretense or arrogance, it exposes things for what they are, insignificant in some ways and yet powerful and strong as well.
As a designer, I am always drawn to exciting structures and the images in this gallery illustrate my efforts to capture the spirit and artistry evident in some of the buildings I have witnessed. The images offer a mere glimpse of the brilliance out in the built world and the power of architecture.
This gallery could easily be called fun or accidents or playtime with the digital camera. This series is just a variety of images showcasing the odd, beautiful, colorful or simply surprising results that can happen when you use the camera as a tool for exploration and experimentation.
This gallery gathers images from my collection that are focused on interesting patterns found out in the world, amazing textures often of our built environment or simply some fascinating shadows created when light and objects interact.
From an early age I have been fascinated by industrial buildings and objects. There is something engaging about an object designed with a simple purity of purpose and intent. These images capture the innate beauty and power of functional things.
I have never been fond of the mirror glass structures often found in many urban settings. As a building expression it often seems like a banal, boring example of poor design. So, I tend to seek out how these rather plain buildings often become a shifting canvas reflecting more interesting items nearby. It is striking sometimes how moving a matter of inches can change the scene and create a dynamic composition on these large expanses of glass.
This gallery is a collection of the odd, funny or interesting things that simply don't fit in other more cohesive, themed galleries. Some are seasonal while others are just an example of something too unique to pass by without taking a shot
