Thank you for visiting my photoblog. I use photography to help me see beauty in the world…as an outlet leaning towards art and not strictly documentation. Although I’ve traveled the world, I’m most influenced by having lived predominately in the high plains areas of southeast Wyoming and southeast Colorado, working in careers dominated by “left-brained” thinking, preferring tranquility over crowds and noisy environments, enjoying classical music, and being drawn to the simple beauty of black and white images. But the greatest influence and teacher has been my wife, Jennifer.

Thanks,

Fred

  1. Fred, I have visited Wyoming a number of times and have often thought I would like to retire there. It is the solitude of those wide open spaces that appeal to me, and your image above speaks volumes about that, and about the people that have made Wyoming their home. That fence row might go for miles and every post looks like scrap wood or material from somewhere and planted on that hill so long ago they are leaning every which way. It takes lots of time to put up a fence that goes on and on, and lots of dedication to maintaining it. That land is dear to somebody. Anyway, that is part of what I see in your image.

    I noticed you have followed Gwichyaa Zhee. Thank you so much. I remember visiting your site before and really enjoying your photographs. I want to browse through them again, but my home internet is terribly slow and I can’t get past your “Hello” page. I’ll try tomorrow from school where the service is better. Thanks again.

    • Hi Dave. Thanks for your kind and thoughtful comment about the image. I, too, like the solitude of open spaces and that’s part of what I hoped to convey in the image. I do indeed follow Gwichyaa Zee. You live in some beautiful country and I’ve enjoyed the images and words you share about your life in that beautiful and challenging environment. Thanks again for your kind comment!

  2. There are so many blogs about photography… but yours is different. I absolutely love your style, as a poet, I’m often insipred by a simple photo. I’m sure that with you pictures I would be able to write many poems! I love the way to use B&W – not systematically, but very often. You’re definitively one of my prefered photographer 🙂 Thank you, et amitiés de France. Frédéric (It seems we have the same first name … 🙂

    • Hello, Frédéric! Yes, the same name…not too many Freds these days it seems. I apologize for the delay in commenting as life’s been hectic. Thank you for your kind words about my blog. I appreciate your thoughtful analysis and am happy to have received such nice words. I do look forward to reading more of your poems in the coming days and to commenting on your site as well.

  3. Seems we have so many similarities: “preferring tranquility over crowds and noisy environments, enjoying classical music, and being drawn time and again to the simple beauty of black and white images.” Color doesn’t really scare me. But I’m usually bored by it. Don’t ask me to explain why, I don’t think I can. But I’m going to go scour your posts now. I expect you’ll be receiving a lot of “like” notifications in your email. Let me apologize in advance!
