Mining the Archives

Some of my photographs have been “packed away” in backup, and after a period in limbo, are now accessible to me again.

I’ve been poking through these thousands of images. It’s fascinating to see what attracted my eye ten years ago, and how I approached my subjects, compared to how I might see and photograph them today. One of these days I might try to describe the differences in how I see today, versus ten years ago.

Here are a small selection of the images.

Than, as now, the natural world and color attract me.
