When I saw Saule in the town square , I walked over and said “You have a lovely face. May I take your picture?” She said, yes, but one moment: she retrieved her passport containing her photograph as a young woman. “See, she said, ‘I used to be a pretty.’ I responded. “You’re right, and now you are beautiful..”

After decades of photographing people in the places where they live, now I am photographing people in the place where I live Sarasota, Florida.

Happy winter solstice. The long days of darkness have passed. Now each day will bring more light and in time new life; grapes for wine, fresh arugula for salads, wheat for bread, raspberries for dessert…..

Fir tree in the Tien Shan mountains of Kazakhstan.

I turn to nature and celebrate the life and abundance that the light gives us. I hope to use each day to cultivate love, harmony, and beauty.

The exhibit of images will be on display December 22nd 11 am to 4 pm at 1338 Central Avenue Sarasota, Florida 34236.

The images are being offered to lift our spirits after the depressing experience with “red tide” along the coast of Sarasota in recent months.  These beautiful underwater images were photographed in the Carribean, the Florida Keys and the Gulf of Mexico. They show what a healthy marine environment looks like.
