The month of July will again showcase my ‘Wonder in the Woods series with some new editions. It will still be in line with the Colorado Aspen and some Pine trees. However, I have been working on taking different Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) photos of reeds, grasses, and also overgrowth in the fields. Soon there will be a separate showcase of my ICM Images. I enjoy the abstract colors of nature that bring serenity from the soft tones. I may announce an opening day rec
The Colorado Photographic Arts Center (CPAC) presents a curated outdoor exhibition that will be digitally projected on the Daniels & Fisher Tower as part of Night Lights Denver during the 2023 Month of Photography Festival. Curator: Samantha Johnston, CPAC Executive Director & Curator.
Juniper’s Last Gasp was accepted to be projected on the building. Seeing the photo across several building levels gives this story much-needed exposure. Read about Juniper’s Last Gasp and its message to all of us on the dire need to care for our environment and nature.
Special thanks to The Denver Theatre District and Night Lights Denver for making this exhibition possible and supporting the 2023 Month of Photography Denver festival.

In these Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) abstract photos, all photos were taken in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The main subject is almost all Aspen trees surrounded by native plants, shrubs, and bushes. Spring, summer, and Fall colors add beauty to the wonder in the woods. This is the first in the Vail Valley and possibly so in Colorado.
This is an unconventional solo exhibition in its hybrid nature, as a non-fungible token (NFT) and in real life (IRL)
