My Bio
Blm Sm

:star: Featured artists. :star:


I hang out in a variety of places.


I am a photographer, walker, and sometime paddler, a theologically-educated geek living in Rochester, NY. Once upon a time I was an Army helicopter jockey in Alaska.


I started with film, switched to digital, then went back to classic film cameras.


With major back surgery in August 2019 and bunion repair in January 2020 now behind me, I am gearing up for #AppalachianTrail2021 for #Birthday71.


I will always remember…

  • I will always remember that I am one finite human being, with assorted weaknesses, and that’s ok.

  • I will always remember that I will not live forever on this earth, and that’s ok, too.

  • I will always remember that Jesus loves me, and that is enough.


So what catches my eye? An eye to see beauty in the unusual or, even more, in the ordinary things of life. A portrait that reveals something unique or special of the one portrayed — or of the artist (self-portraits in particular fascinate me), or of joy, grief, and hope of life. A gaze into the eyes of the one gazing at the artist. The sheer joy of creation. A delight in the ridiculous that resides in all of us. Gracefulness of form and motion.


Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...

  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.

  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.

  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.

  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.

  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.

  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.

Enjoy!


Life is a photo op. Take the camera.
