Baroque Facade in Sevilla

No one likes this photograph as much as I do.  I shot this image looking up through a translucent awning that was being set up for a street festival in a small square.  This is a typical baroque-style church in Seville, Spain.

The Last Day for Christmas Orders

I got another order for this image last week.  It's one of my best sellers.  I'm starting to think of it as my signature image.  This is one that I had displayed in Pro Photo Supply as a 40x60 print.  Does anyone want something that big?

At any rate, today is the last day that I can get you a print before Christmas.  Click here to order Cinque Terre.

I took this photo in Riomaggiore in Cinque Terre, Italy.  The light was low and made the stucco housefronts glow.  I took this from the Via dell'Amore looking over the little bay.

Venetian Light

When I was young I took a romantic trip through Europe.  I was shooting film then - this was before the age of digital - and using a trusty old Pentax camera my father had given me. This was the best image I took on the entire trip.  When I printed it the first time, I fell in love with it. I've been printing it and perfecting it ever since.

This image is printed on Hahnemuhle Fine Art Photo Rag Paper.  I do all my own printing.  This photo prints up really beautifully, with lots of fine detail.  You can purchase it as an 8x10 here or as a 20x24 here.

Boat on Crater Lake

When I was in college I inherited my grandfather's old twin-lens camera. He used to use it in the 1950s when he was a photo journalist. Like other simple mechanical devices of its time, it was built to last, and it still works. I love it for the square format photos it takes.

This picture was taken on an unusually calm day in September. It's very rare to see the lake so still.

I offer this one as an 8x8 here, but I have also printed it much larger. It looks really good as a 20x20, and I have a 44x44 that was hanging in a show at Pro Photo Supply that I'm not sure what to do with. Any ideas?
