Snakes In The City + 1 Fairy

June 1, 2018

Greg Emlet  was not happy with his snake Atticus (as in Atticus Finch, “To Kill a Mockingbird”), so it (a Demeril’s boa) was not present this day at Loose Park.

Fire and how we got that way

April 13, 2018

When DID humans discover how to make fire? Best guesses are between 700,000 and 120,000 years ago.

I took a Photo One class at Kansas State as a post graduate and have spent the last 40+ years (yikes), as a staff photojournalist and a freelancer. I’ve been behind the lens, since then, trying to make sense of the world, and find my place in it.

The picture above is not me, just a little girl who I think looks like me, that I shot a long time ago. And yes, I have learned, for the most part, not to put my hand in front of the lens!
