After Autumn III


What a strange year it’s been weather-wise. Autumn still isn’t here. I’ve lived in the mountains of North Carolina for 25 years and have never experienced the heat that continues to visit us. The prediction for tomorrow is 91 degrees! But, they are predicting cooler weather soon. So color should begin to dot the landscape and eventually decorate our mountainsides and valleys. I’ll let you know next month how it evolves. Keeping fingers crossed! 

It has been a wonderfully busy six weeks. The show at the NC Arboretum, “Nature in Abstract,” has been a success. It comes down on October 14, so if you if you’re in the Asheville area and haven’t had a chance to see it, I hope you’ll be able to do so before then. Details are here! The Autumn wall is at the right.

Prints in the show will be moved to Trackside Studios (in Asheville’s River Arts District). They are very different from my black and white images there now. I work at the gallery many Monday afternoons. If you’re nearby, please stop by! I’d love to visit and show you my latest, as well as the work of our other artists.

And, if you’d like to learn abstract photography techniques (including Intentional Camera Movement, Multiple Exposures, Compositing, etc.) be sure to check out the information on my November 7-8-9-10th workshop at my website. The techniques are fun to learn and create wonderfully innovative images.  And, I suspect that Autumn color will still be in full swing so we should have excellent photo ops! 

As always, I look forward to seeing you along the way, at the Arboretum or Trackside Studios, in a workshop, or in the field. Have a wonderful October!

With warm regards,



Photographic Artistry Workshops are designed to give you tools and
techniques to increase your skills to express your vision through photography.
