Things are looking up. (Well, I was, anyway.) This is a view of a unique spiral stairway with my wife and son looking down at me. (Probably thinking, “Can we go now? How many more pictures are you going to take?”)
These are photos I took a couple of years ago as we toured the company my son works for – Epic in Verona, WI. They specialize in software for the medical industry. They have a very cool campus with buildings that tend to be theme oriented, accented with unique architecture, sculpture and artwork. Plenty of cool stuff to point a camera at.
All these images are looking up at the same stairway from different angles.

A mother and father’s wedding rings look huge when placed on the toes of their newborn son.
During our first photo op, our son and daughter-in-law placed their wedding rings on the toes of Samuel – their first child, our first grandchild. Sammy was 1 week old at the time of this photo.

The sprites have their own interpretative dance party at the bottom of a lighted stairway on the campus of Epic in Verona, Wisconsin.
This photo was taken as we toured the huge Epic campus – led by our son, who works for the major software company. Epic is the world leader in software for mid-size and large medical groups, hospitals and integrated healthcare organizations.

The morning was cold. The sun was rising…and so was a mist from the patches of open water near the lighthouse that stands at the Alogma, Wisconsin harbor.
I posted a color image from this same morning a week ago – Frigid Sunrise Fog.

This is a simple, yet elegant, poppy bloom from the flower bed near our back door. The petals reminded me of linens on a clothes line, flowing under the influence of a warm summer breeze.
It’s original color was the typical poppy red, but I decided to process it as a monochrome image. I love the subtle variations in tone and texture that are not as noticeable with the color version.

A father-daughter moment – dad browsing with his iPhone and daughter browsing “old school.”
Sometimes a “moment” just happens. This photo was taken in May of 2011 while visiting family. There were a number of other people in the room, visiting, laughing and having a good time. I was down on the floor focusing my photographic effort on the little girl, snapping pictures and didn’t really notice the symmetry between her and her father in the background until I saw it on my computer screen.
This image actually took a good deal of work and digital magic. Beyond converting it to monochrome, there was another person in the shot and a fourth person’s foot that I had to remove to isolate my subjects.

A lone sailboat rests as the sun rises over Lazy Man’s Cove.
Well, it’s not really called Lazy Man’s Cove. I just made it up because, with the rickety dock in the foreground, I thought the name fit.
This is actually at the Green Lake Conference Center in Green Lake, Wisconsin. This is a little protected area of the lake right next to the conference center. I was up, wandering the grounds with my camera (of course), at sunrise last June.

Whatever lies beyond that tree has been swallowed up by a eerie mid-winter’s fog.
This is was snapped in the middle of the day, in the farm field across the road from our rural home in Kewaunee County, WI. I’ve taken quite a few photos of this tree over the years. See… Spring Enchantment, Day’s End Elm and Serene Sunset.

On a cold, dreary, foggy day, this rural driveway into the woods seems mysterious and even a bit dangerous.
This is a spot just down the road and around the corner from my home. I drive by it quite often. It never caught my eye until I drove by it slowly on a foggy day.

The eyes of this child are hypnotic. It’s hard for me to look away…all the while, wondering what she might be thinking.
This is a father and daughter – part of a family of five I was working with for a family portrait. He was carrying her as we walked to another setting in the outdoors.
