Once in a while my work will show up on other photography websites. There is no specific regularity to the appearances, but anything that is seen elsewhere is also posted here on this page.
One of the primary places my images can be found is Pentax Forums where I post (screen name AggieDad) with a number of other black and white photographers who also use Pentax cameras.
I am also a guest contributor to Monochromia , a wonderful site dedicated to black and white photography. The contributing photographers come from around the globe.
Finally there is a neat little website, The Weekend in Black and White, that allows folks to share some of their black and white photographs each weekend. The website's host is located in Ireland, and the folks who participate come from the world over.
I encourage you to visit all of these sites and enjoy some wonderful monochrome photographs.
At the Galveston train yards there is a group of tracks used as storage for BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe) locomotives. Some of the locomotives look as though they are ready for service while others look as though they may be nothing more than a source for parts. In all, I would guess there are near to 150 engines stored on these tracks. I just put on my yellow safety vest and go wandering through the yard taking photos.
Frequently when on a spring birding trip to Galveston Island, we will try to visit one of the known breeding areas for egrets and spoonbills. I managed to capture this image of a lovely Great Egret, still in breeding plumage, tending to its chicks. The original photo was made with a 500mm lens as the egrets nest on a small island in the middle of a pond. The island is protected from predators by alligators and is just overflowing with Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills, and Cormorants.
Few places have as much beautiful scenery as Yellowstone National Park. With over 2 million acres there are opportunities to see almost everything nature has to offer. This charming little lake with the hills reflecting in it is but a small example of the beauty that seems to be everywhere in Yellowstone.
A local Corvette club was having an outing at the Babler State Park in Wildwood, Missouri. Their cars were all carefully parked in a line with all of the cars facing out. I asked if it would be okay to take some pictures, and this beauty is one of the results.
I saw this magnificent bird at a zoo in Colorado. This bald eagle is a rescue and has been in captivity for several years. But living in a structured environment does not seem to have affected its dignity and imposing bearing. It kindly posed in profile long enough for me to take this portrait.
By May of 2020 the pandemic had pretty much closed down most public places and activities everywhere. Here is the closed and empty day-tripper picnic area at Galveston Island State Park on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Fixed rows of picnic tables with canopies and charcoal grilles silently waiting for families to return.
