This photo was selected to be in a digital exposition in the Border Exhibition at the  Hinterland Galerie in Vienna, Austria on August 29, 2019.  I had a lot of opportunities to photograph the White House when I lived near Washington, DC and many times my goal was to capture it uniquely.  Is this photo about the White House or the fence surrounding it?  That was my purpose...

This photo, Wet Walk, was taken on a trip to Florence, Italy when we lived in Naples.  Our daughters were walking in the rain with an umbrella on the cobblestone streets, it caught my eye.  The photo was selected for digital exposition in the Street Photography Exhibit at the  Photosynthesis Art Center in Sofia, Bulgaria on August 1, 2019.

This photo was entered in a series of Gurushots competitions called "Your Best Shot" in the spring/summer of 2019.  The result was, Your Best Photo - The Second Challenge, and this shot, called Rover, was selected by Dodho Magazine for their Top 100 of 300,000 photos submitted and more than 150 million votes cast in three challenges.  This

photo proves a serious point, it's not about the camera or the gear.  Lighting, composition, and clear subject matter more than just about anything else.  I have plenty of fancy gear and toys that I use daily.  However, this photo, taken with a Sony DSC-W7 "point & shoot" camera back in 2006, gets placed in their top 100.  There's a message in there somewhere...  🤓

This photo, Stairs, was selected for a digital display at the Qlick Gallery in Amsterdam, Netherlands in the Beautiful Imperfections gallery.  It was taken while out walking near the downtown area of El Paso, Texas in an alley way between buildings.  Downtown El Paso is very interesting, a mix of old historic buildings and new as well, I hope they don't lose the old ones...

Coffee Machine 2 was selected for print and showcased for sale at the Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi in Venice, Italy on June 14, 2019 during the Venice Biennale.  It was taken on a corner in Yokosuka, Japan, it had just rained and the sun was coming out.  It made this red brick look shiny and almost unreal.

One the same day, this portrait of my daughters, cleverly titled Daughters, was selected to show in a digital exposition for Memorable Portraits.  This was taken in our backyard in Coronado, California.  I told them they would miss this swing more than iPads and TV, they do...

Corkin' was shown digitally at the Berlin Blue Art Gallery in the "Mostly Black" exhibit in Berlin, Germany on May 30, 2019.  I was doing a little light painting in my garage with a corkscrew stuck in the top of a bottle of wine.

This photo, called Wisky, because Wisky (with no "h") was the nickname of the USS Wisconsin, now on display in Norfolk, VA.  Visit my "July 14, 2019 Blog called About this..." for more info about this shoot.  This photo was exhibited twice at:

- Digital showcase at the "Monochrome" exhibition at the Ravnikar Gallery located in Ljubljana, Slovenia on May 10, 2019.

- 2017 Digital “Black and White” Exhibition at Galeria6mas1 in Madrid, Spain on July 20, 2017. 

Plum Crates digitally showcased at the Berlin Blue Art Gallery in the "Centered" exhibit in Berlin, Germany on April 18, 2019.  This was the four corners of plum crates at the Old Town Farmers Market in Alexandria, VA.

Skylink was simultaneously shown digitally at two GuruShots exhibitions on the same evening!  The "Urban Scenery" and "Art of Photography" exhibits in Barcelona, Spain at the Valid World Hall on March 8, 2019.  This a first for me, kind of happy about it too!  🤗  The photo was taken at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in Dallas, TX.

Times Square 2 digitally exhibited at the GuruShots "City Scenes Exhibition" in Athens, Greece at the Blank Wall Gallery from November 30 - December 2, 2018.  Taken at Times Square in New York City.

Silhouette digitally showcased at the "Shadows and Silhouettes" exhibition at the Art Market Budapest in Budapest, Hungary from October 10-14, 2018.  The south pier light in Manitowoc, WI.

Light Traffic was digitally showcased at the 2018 "Creative Composition" exhibition at the Qlick Gallery, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands from August 3-5, 2018.  Taken between the World War Two Memorial and the Washington Monument in Washington, DC.

In 2017 a friend suggested I enter a photo contest in my hometown of Manitowoc, WI.  I entered three photos, August Rains (top right) and Neshotah (middle right) took first and second place in the Coastal-Nautical category and OCS (bottom right) won third place in Sports & Recreation, the title is actually short for Orange Colored Sky.  Thanks JW for pointing me in the right direction for this!

Glass Ceiling was selected for digital exposition for the 2017 Thessaloniki International Art Fair at the Helexpo Exhibition & Congress Center in Thessaloniki, Greece on November 23-26, 2017.  Looking up at the ceiling of the Galleria Umberto in downtown Naples, Italy.

Hand in Hand was selected for the digital exposition for Minimalism at the 2017 MIA Photo Fair at The Mall in Porta Nuova in Milan, Italy from March 10-13, 2017.  These are my daughters walking at White Sands, NM, they kind of forgot about me and I let them go to get the shot.

- This photo was digitally shown at the Louvre in Paris, France and it's called IB Sunset #3.  It was selected for LensCulture Magazine's digital exposition as part of a collection for the 2015 Exposure Awards and was shown on July 13, 2015.  Pretty darn cool, the Louvre...  😎   This sunset was taken at Imperial Beach, CA.
