Built To Last

Still Standing


Like the Pantheon or other architectural structures from that era, some things have an enduring legacy – built to last. You need not be last, though, if you hurry over to my shops at Redbubble and Pixels. There, you can uncover a treasure trove of great gift giving ideas for family and friends – there’s so much to see…

Peeling Paint

Time To Decorate

When your exterior walls look like this, it’s time to sand, prime and paint your house.

Interior walls are different, but need attention, too. Perhaps this rough image might serve as an appealing contrast with an otherwise finished space in your home. If so, then consider a print.

Prints available.

Vintage Glass

Take A Close Look


Prints available. This macro photography highlights an old, aquamarine colored bottle which I dug from the ground sometime in the mid-1970’s. Oftentimes, beauty is all around us – if we look for it.

Can you see it?

Carvings On Rock Wall

This stylized family photograph was copied from a slide taken sometime in the 1960’s. I’m not sure if the carvings are authentic or not, perhaps created by tourists in the area. What area – I’m not really sure? Probably somewhere in the southwestern United States. See more.

John Oliver Cabin At Cades Cove

One of the most popular tourist destinations located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cades Cove is just a short drive from Townsend, Tennessee. Wonderful views of mountains, valleys, wildlife and historical structures are featured along an 11-mile loop through the area. Along the drive, visitors will encounter the John Oliver Cabin.

The cabin was built in 1822 by John and Lucretia Oliver, the cove’s first permanent European settlers, one of many structures that followed – several of which remain, today. By 1850, the population of Cades Cove tallied 671.

Vintage USVI Panoramic

Using a disposable panoramic camera in 1993, I photographed this chimney in the USVI’s. More recently, I scanned that image into my computer, added the sepia tone and additional weathered effects. If interested, a poster measuring 33″ by 10.92″ is available in four different types of paper.
