Under a chorus of stars; The remote and abandoned Yancopin Rail Road Bridge spans the Arkansas River, not far from her confluence with the Mississippi River. Many hope the Yancopin will be made part of the Delta Heritage bike trail.
Before the Sun there was Goth
In a day or two this will be a bold display of yellow sunflower petals, but for now, it is all form -- and a gnarly nod to the gothic vibe.

Flight of the Honey Bee
Sometimes I try to think what an American Basket flower must look like to the bee -- Does it look like waving barge, or a house made of cotton-candy?

I am a photographer for the State of Arkansas, serving our Governor, Mike Beebe. As is, my day job involves a lot of grip and grins of persons in suits, so I relish the after-hours photo ‘hobby’ when I frame Arkansas’ flora and fauna. I particularly like to take pictures of natural things in less conventional ways. I try to press beyond pure naturalism, to suggest the blending of the material and spiritual worlds.
Beyond that, if you have a wedding or event coming up, give me an e-call.
