“The best street photography focuses our attention on what we have trained ourselves to ignore.” — Margaret Renkl, NY Times Guest Essay “Baldwin Lee Is One of Those Artists Who Teach Us to See,” October 31, 2022
“You were once wild. Don’t let them tame you.” — Isadora Duncan
It has been about six months since my last blog. I felt that both the blog and my photography were getting repetitive, so I decided to take a “creative hiatus.” I may restart it but probably on a monthly rather than weekly frequency.
I have worked on two books in the interim. The “Marsh Speaks in Metaphor” is a book of poetry and landscape images, all taken at North Point State Park in Baltimore. Ted Forbes did a recent review of the book on the Art of Photography at 3:53 minutes into the blog and referenced my blog as a contact point. If you are interested in purchasing a copy you can contact me at email@example.com. The book is $20 and I can only accept checks. I have sold some of them through the Ivy Bookshop on Falls Road and will contact them again to see if they might be interested in additional copies.
