  • Farming, the sunny garden.

    The winter of 2023 I was offered an opportunity to grow produce in the sun, two in fact, gardens in opposite directions. An impossible invitation to refuse; after years of shade gardening in our forested yard and restoring a native forest habitat, sun gardening sounded productive. Looking back it has been a rewarding experience, informative, healthy and excuse to spend more than my fair share of time outdoors. Recap of a year in the dirt. One year in and I’m gearing up to take on the challenges of growth in the gardens. This time around I won’t be starting from scratch, fall alliums are on the rise and a few brassicas survived the January storms plus the furious gorge winds. That's the recap 2023, looking forward to another abundant year learning about agriculture on an organic farm. Big shout out to my amazing hosts whom have taught me so much over the past seasons.

  • From Forest Setting to Urban Living: Building Relationships with Neighbors

    Despite the massive mess of broken trees parts my cleanup efforts are progressing as spring begins. Daylight, sunshine falling on the forest floor, blue skies above, clouds, a coopers hawk and songbirds pass on by. A new scurry of Douglas squirrels are showing off their skill with lighting speed. I’m going to need to get quicker with my camera to catch the antics. Months of manual cleanup are paying dividends for the native plants recently buried under tons of limbs and needles. There are a few cultivars too. Three months later I’ve manage to rearrange the backyard plant to provide some sense of privacy. Next up; I will hopefully have some farming flashbacks from last year.

  • Paths found under an explosion of tree parts.

    A herd of five gaze in on the action below. The last couple months have been an education in reparations to the native plant community. We have a much different appreciation for the strength of high winds and how precarious saturated soils are on a big trees rooted foundations.

  • Winter Landscaping Detour

    By freezing winds and ferocious gusts January 2024. Early January 2024 before the storm. Wind blown trees crashed through the neighborhood, snapping power poles, crushing houses and leaving us without internet, power or heat for days. The past month has been an education in garden recovery. Under a blanket of tree debris hides 18 years of native landscaping plants that will see their first sunny days soon.

  • Capturing the Moments: A Photography Journey Through Time and Tide

    Rain is falling across the Pacific Northwest, rising temperatures melting last weeks heavy snow in the Cascades and coast range, rivers are rising. Meanwhile I’m enjoying being dry, warming the cabin, burning blown down Red Alder, Douglas Fir and Aborvitae. The past week I’ve reviewed 100,000 digital images. Adventures at low tide on the Pacific coast, bird watching on the beach or local wetlands. Many more are historical images digitized last winter. Past lives documented by my ever present camera, portraits of classmates, family and friends. There are early landscapes and intimate portraits of artists working at the family business. I’m thinking winter months are going to be a productive time of learning. UPDATE: The 2024 January wind and ice storms changed my plans for winter projects. Instead of digitizing the past I learned about Forest Restoration and Remediation.

  • Site update news.

    More site work ahead. Winter is typically a time I spend inside working on the computer and this site is part of that work. For the past three seasons I have been outside. Continuing my education in sustainable living, learning about growing, caring for and harvesting my own organic produce. It was and remains hands on work in the dirt. I'm gardening two plots: plot #1is located at a local community garden in the upper Willamette Valley. Plot #2 is a larger plot on a friends farm in the wind swept Columbia River Gorge. A very exciting and busy summer spent working the earth, watching seeds sprout, grow, mature and ultimately get harvested. Often I was out the door before dawn, watching the sunrise over Mt. Hood on my way to pull weeds pulling weeds. After a summer of body toning physical labor in my gardens I have a great deal more appreciation for our full time farmers and food providers. I'd thought I had some idea of the work involved growing, not sure I do now, not completely. Photograph of my cabin studio where I will spend the winter working on inside projects. This website should grow to include more of my photography. I look forward to sharing my present creative work and not just looking back at old studios of the pass. Be sure, I'll escape my computer work as often as the weather permits. Looking forward to winter walks with exciting photo opportunities along the way.
