3D Redux “J Ro”

Long ago, at the invitation of Darra Gasper, I made photographs of 3D Project dancers.  She and Cesar Degollado directed the dancers.  I meant well in my naivete and enthusiasm. They were tolerant. As was she.

Hearing Santa’s Heart

From 2011 to 2015, I made photographs of Santa when he visited Ole Time Winterfest in Cary

This from 2012 is still with me. In 2020, his heart is still true. And he knows. So be good.

Photography Session Suspension

This has been a hard year for everyone. My hope is to be active again soon.
