Mineola Journal

This movie a compilation of photographs and video I have made in my backyard on Phillippi Creek since the spring of 2011. The movie is 17 minutes long, so if you do not have time now, you may want to bookmark it for viewing at a later time.
All the photographs and videos were made with a Panasonic GH2. I have never made so many photographs (and videos) from just one spot. My backyard is about 40 yards wide. There is always something happening, whether it is wildlife, changing light or patterns on the water. Enjoy!

Ode to Ginger Man – Redux

comments

I decided to bring back Ginger Man. Mari and I originally created “Ode to Ginger Man” in 2004. I created a graphic and Mari a poem which we than put up on the web. Ginger Man traveled world wide and visited US troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Because of the expanding presence of video on the web, Ginger Man is now back for a richer experience for his fans.

Photographs Before Sarasota

comments

From 1970 to 2000 I was photographing and printing in the darkroom constantly. Around 2000 two things happened: 1. I began a business with my brother and 2. The digital revolution hit photography. The business relationship with my brother did not work out (I am still running the internet based business). The digital revolution forced me to reconsider photography and I stopped using my darkroom and started exploring the computer. Continue reading

Meditative Music & Light

comments

Mari has been attending a workshop with Linda Maree for a few months. Recently we met Linda and her partner David Gittens on Siesta Key beach and had a wonderful connection with both of the them. This video is from a performance that David and Linda gave at the Unity Church of Sarasota. David’s guitar is a 23 string guitar of his own creation and Linda is playing a Tambura. I took the audio portion of their performance and ran it through iTunes and did a video screen capture of the Visualizer which was responding to the music David and Linda played. Sit back and relax, but don’t close your eyes.

Russell Donnellon at Sarasota Farmers Market

comments

I met Russell when he came to my house to have his portrait taken. We connected on many levels, with one being music. I went down to the Sarasota Farmers Market to make video and photographs of Russell and this video is the result of that time. I wanted to have Russell’s music in the background as I photographed people’s reaction to him. Russell is at the Farmers Market about once a month and if you are in Sarasota, you can see and hear him at The Cottage in Siesta Village on Wednesday and Sunday Evenings. More about Russell Donnellon.
