Photo-essays, Welcome To My World


My first magazine article, many years ago, was really a photo essay. Over the years, I have gotten away from that. I still take many photos but seldom publish them together. Until now, Welcome to my new section of photo-essays.

 What are Photo-essays?

Noun: A group of photographs, usually with supplementary text, that conveys a unified story and is published as a book or as a feature in a magazine or newspaper.

It is time for a change. I am going to create a series of photo essays. Some will be from photos I have taken in the past, others will be new. Some of these photographs will be on my Flickr site    Another Photography task for this year, is to update that also.

Either way, welcome to my world of photography. Please join me in my travels. From the backyard to around the world. No passport required for you to experience it.
