A few new updates to my photo essays

I published a new portrait on my portrait’s page. Also, on my home page, I now include a shot of the Michigan Central Station, in Detroit, taken in April 2015 with a GoPro. Despite the size of the camera and its limitations, I love how its fisheye perspective captures the feeling of confronting decay at the former great train station. (Published Feb. 14, 2016.)

New photo gallery on Detroit and its struggles

On Oct. 9, 2015, I published 25 new photographs I took in Detroit in September. The series focusses on neighborhoods I visited without any itinerary beyond seeing how ordinary Detroit residents are living their lives. I did have some specific goals, including photographing a house I lived in as a baby. Every single street I detoured on revealed stories of economic distress, abandonment, de-population, and economic turmoil. Of course there are pockets of nice areas, near Lake St. Claire and clustered around downtown. But you do not have to stray far to see the larger canvas.

Washington and Oregon Galleries Updated

I added some new photos to my galleries of Washington State and Oregon. I recently took a trip to see Native American petroglyphs and pictographs near The Dalles, on the Columbia River. I also have added a few candids of my home city, Portland, that speak to the state’s larger national and global identity as both the beaver state and brewpup capital of the universe.

New Portland photo gallery

I have created a gallery of nearly three dozen photos of Portland, from Parks, to industrial landscapes, to trails, to neighborhoods, to bridges, to landmarks. I have yet to add any summertime photos. Right now I have just three seasons, as of March 2015. More to come.

New gallery added of GoPro photography

On  Nov. 22, 2014, I added a gallery of still I have been taking over the last six months with my GoPro Hero 3 videocamera/still camera. Despite its reputation for taking outstanding videos everywhere in the world, doing everything imaginable, this camera is an amazing little workhorse for still photography storytelling. See some of my images on my new gallery.
