Xan in Purple
Another view of Xan, in purple rather than blue.
Lost in Time
I love juxtaposing the unexpected in my photographs...in this case the historic and present day. Sometimes it evokes a laugh, and sometimes it is thought-provoking. Either way, it requires a second look.
Working with layers, loving the blue and the beautiful Xan.
Emergence ~ The Clouds
Another in my Emergence series.
Feeling in a fantasy mood, staying out of the heat.
Emergence in Purple
Variation on a theme, fun with bubbles.
A different version of the dancer in the shell. I think I like this one better, as it shows almost the whole shape of the shell.
Dancer in the Shell
Having fun with double exposures. A possible image for my upcoming Featured Artist Show, themed: Bending Reality.
In the Looking Glass
I am always excited when I see a mirror or reflections in windows that allow me to photograph people without their awareness. This mirror was at a jewelry booth at the Renaissance Faire. I watched while several people were reflected in it.
Dancing on the Grass
Playing with several images of this dancer at the Renaissance Faire last spring. I liked the feeling of wild abandon by the dancers.
From a mirror at a jewelry booth at the Renaissance Faire last April, Irwindale, CA.
Playing with images and double exposures. I liked the other-worldly feel about it.

Lovely lady in the garden.
Girl in the Red Boots
A cute little girl at the Lavender Festival, sitting up on a rock. I loved her red boots.
