Sea Grass on Sand
July, 2019

At low tide the sea grass settles on the beach sand off Vashon Island, Washington, like Japanese caligraphy

Kimmel Curves
April, 2017

The beloved Kimmel Center on Broad Street in Philadelphia – I have seen many performances in that venue, especially the Philadelphia orchestra in the Verizon Hall – I love the place! Especially its intriguing architecture! But as is often the case, it took a visit from a friend to get me there with my camera. This angle is hard to find, by the way.
