Thanksgiving with Mama Lou

November 27, 2014 my dear friend, Rick and his wife, Lorraine, invited me over to Lorraine’s Mama Lou’s for Thanksgiving. Due to my work schedule I don’t have the chance to visit with my own family on this holiday, so every year I am surprised by where I will spend …

Door Man

On November 8th, at Mike Kelly’s Westsider as we listened and danced to the great sound of Cachecanto, Bear sits at the door takin’ in the money.

Postcards from the Flint Hills

I was invited to a friends ranch in the Flint Hills for the sole purpose of photographing. I had an evening and a morning to work, see, and create. The lone tree which for me, signifies the prairie was the first image I saw, as I walked around looking, composing …

Blue Kansas City

A friend and I decided to photograph the Royals Blue on October 27th. We started our blue journey at the Kauffman Performing Arts Center, a place, that even though the images look the same, tends to always fascinate me. A spaceship on the prairie in the middle of the city. …

On Thursday September 25th I met my students at the Kauffman Center. I feel the place challenges them with light, color, line, and composition. On this evening the lights are covered with red gels. Made for an interesting color combination.

Teresa’s Peppers

I work with a woman, who, through all she does; maintains a great attitude about life. She brings in sunshine and along with that a little spice. OK, hot peppers.

Balloon Fest 2014

On Friday, August 8th my employer treated those of us who wanted to go, to the Balloon Fest. It was a perfect event to document our culture in action. I enjoyed documenting the parents with their children who were in amazed awe, excited with energy (probably from the sugar), and …

At the Nelson with KCAC

I had the great pleasure of hangin’ out with these great people and listening to Merry Quackenbush, Sonie Joi Ruffin, and Glenn North discuss key pieces of work telling the story of the Civil Rights movement in Kansas City. The discussion by Sonie and the poem by Glenn really tugged …
