Welcome to Timeline Photos. A few years back I started peeking around my archives in search of some of the first photographs I had taken. Here records my quest into better understanding my long term love of camera and experiencing the world with it in hand. All photos appear in chronological order hopefully revealing an evolution of how I see and what moves me to speak with light.

Dave Zimmerman's Memorial, 11.20.10

I was prompted to take pictures at my friend's memorial because that is exactly what he would have done. I did it more as a celebration of his life, and as it ends up, his wife and friends appreciated the photos a lot, too. A small action can move the spirit.

Big Sam's Funky Nation - Sunday in the Park, 11.7.10

Gah!  Funky glare effect with Big Sam and DaPhessah.  They treated me to a jam right into my lens and I didn't reposition out of the sun quick enough.  Might have been too excited about the coolness of the moment with them.

Night Live Oak with Azaleas


I love the Live Oak in our front yard.  It's the "keeper of our house" in the dark, and our sun shield and shelter during the day.  Here it's so lovely surrounded by azaleas late day.  The street lamp provides a nice silhouette late in the evening.
