Exhibit of the Nepalese Photographs

Update: The Nepal Exhibit will show at Linnaea's through November.

Dear Friends.
I am excited to announce that I have been asked to exhibit images of Nepal for the month of October and November at Linnaea’s Coffee House in San Luis Obispo.
You are cordially invited to join me at the opening night, Friday October 3rd. 6 - 9pm. We will be serving wine, beer, and hors d’oeuvres in coordination with Art After Dark and the San Luis Obispo Arts Council.
Many of the photographs on display are the first prints of the images, and I am looking forward to sharing them with you.
I hope to see you there.


August in the Southwest, Colorado, Utah and Nevada

An exploration of the Southwestern U.S. provided some gorgeous areas to photograph the late Summer flowers, afternoon thundershowers, distant vistas, and imagery of a wide open landscape. The Rockies and San Juan Mountains of central and Southern Colorado, the desert buttes of Moab and Western Utah, time spent with friends and traveling back roads each provided the ingredients for a very memorable journey. Hope these images help to take you along.
