Still Learning To See


The recent collaboration, titled “Reflections,” among three friends—one a painter, another a cellist and myself—has been a wonderful success and an inspiration to try new ways of sharing my work. While I can’t (yet) share the marvelous paintings Hope created or the amazing cello music Melissa played during the 20-minute slideshow of my work, I can share the 100 images of reflections in water and ice that played during the performance.

“One hundred images?!” I can hear you saying, “That is a LOT of images to look at!” Each played for ten seconds with a two-second fade and all those amazing sounds coming from the cello… . The variety of images is striking when seen as an entire show, ranging not just through the seasons but also throughout a range of textures and colors that only the natural world can give us free of charge!

I’ve set this up as a slideshow so you can click on it, sit back quietly with a cup of coffee and enjoy. If you can’t take the time, no worries, just enjoy as many images as you can. Perhaps in the next day or two, you can find a bit more time to enjoy discovering a few real-life reflections—they are everywhere once you learn to see them—something I’m still enjoying learning to do.

    Wow! Fabulous shots – calming, striking, serene, exciting a bit of everything with wonderful colors. So sorry I couldn’t experience the triple effect, but thanks for sharing your beautiful images.

  2. I just watched them all–what a kaleidoscope of shape and color. “Reflections” isn’t just the format of your pictures, but it’s a call for us, the viewer, to do some reflecting of our own. How many of those magical moments are missed from being too busy or tired or distracted. Your work is a real call to pay attention–which I’m still trying to learn. Thanks so much.

  3. Thank you both. Yes, this kind of “gorgeosity” is everywhere just waiting for us to slow down and take a look or two.
