George In Fog

Tilghman Island, MD
Five years ago we installed three Osprey platforms in the cove on which we live. This is the fourth year for the same couple who arrive in mid-March, breed and raise their young before separating and flying to southern points unknown to us. The male arrives a few days before the female and readies the best for his mate’s arrival. I name them after a different tv sitcom each year. For example, last year they were the Barones from “Everybody Loves Raymond”. This year they’re  “The Jetsons”.

 

Here we have George Jetson who arrived on a rainy and foggy March 21, 2022. Jane arrived three days later and is now nesting on her eggs. We look forward to the arrival of Judy and Elroy.

Geometry At 4am

I was having difficulty sleeping so my husband and I went out for a shoot. Well, he drove and I hopped out along the way to take shots. There was a lot of mist in the air which made shapes much more dramatic against the black sky. I took this at 4am in the Harbor East area of Baltimore.

Not Modern

My husband and I were in the real estate business for many years. We had rental properties and renovated and sold others. I took this photo while on a tour of a place that was for sale.

I’m doing a series on Maryland Route 33. I took this one recent foggy morning about halfway between St. Michaels and Tilghman Island.

Plumbers Truck

I took this one sunny morning in Tilghman, Maryland. I got a kick out of the display of toilets that had been removed from customers’ homes. I guess it’s good advertising for the plumber.

Taken in Baltimore on 11/3/21. I like the way the light shone on her and the background of the garden painted on the walk behind her.

The daughter of good friends of ours kept herself entertained while her parents chatted with friends at our favorite coffee shop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mother And Me

This was inspired by covid confinement. I am often told I look like my mother so I decided to do a double exposure to see if that is true. We were both in our mid-thirties in the images of us. The one of my mother is a photo I took of a portrait of her painted by her brother. I converted it to black and white. The one of me is a photo taken of me for the Baltimore Sun. I took a photo of it. I merged them.

In The Distance

I took this shot on the morning of 8/7/21 on Tilghman Island, Maryland. We had just returned from grocery shopping, parked the car in the carport and were ready to unload. It was our usual beautiful morning sky. By the time I got to the back of the car the sky these clouds appeared. I was lucky that I had a camera over my shoulder as things were changing rapidly.
