Life at a Distance I

 Today, is the first of a special project I've begun during this time of quarantining. Although I live alone, with my dear cat Meeps, I've had to grapple with 8 weeks + of isolation. As a photographer, I've searched for ways to get out and shoot while remaining safe and at a distance. This has led me to haunting my neighborhood garden shop after hours and friends' beautiful gardens to shoot and get fresh air! It's also opened up a project I'm calling Life At A Distance.

Yesterday I ventured out to daughter Kathleen's home to have Mother's Day lunch with her family.  For the last 8 weeks she has voluntarily made and donated hundreds of masks for healthcare providers, friends, neighbors, their company, and strangers. She has turned her dining room into a mini factory as have so many across this country.

Remembering With Much Love

 I can't say for certain, but I"m guessing that for most of the 100+ years, the women of Independent Presbyterian Church have gathered on the Friday before Palm Sunday and lovingly made palm crosses that would be pinned on each member as they entered the Sanctuary on Palm Sunday. I"ve been privileged to photograph this lovely gathering many times. There is much laughter and love as the older, more experienced members shared their techniques with the newer ones. I will admit that I mainly come for Betty Schriber's fabulous pimento sandwiches. This year, our church along with others across this country will celebrate in a different way. No palm crosses for us this year, but we still have these memories.

The Pink House

I am pleased to announce that a selection of my photographs of Homewood's iconic Pink House, the Bridges Studios, are now available for sale. I have chosen a variety of images that are available in two sized prints plus a selection of folded notecards. Other size options are available.

My gratitude to Abbie Wiersma at Art Editions and Gallery for her excellent printing and framing. Located in the Homewood Antiques, it's just a few blocks from the home. The perfect place for them to be shown.

Pink House I

 The Bridges Studios, the historic home in Edgewood has new owners and been thankfully spared from the wrecking ball. Over the past two weeks, I've had the privilege of getting to know the owners and capturing all the wonderful sculpture in and around the home. It's lovingly referred to as The Pink House, for obvious reasons. I hope you'll enjoy touring the home and gardens!

Coming Soon!

Third Friday at Shoppe

 I"m very lucky to have one of the hippest garden shops located just a block from my home.  Jay Draper and Mark Thompson manage to find the most beautiful plants and irresistible containers and gifts as well. On the Third Friday of every month. They throw an afternoon workshop along with wine and appetizers. Today we all left with adorable little vases with locally grown flowers from area flower farmers.
