Supermoon in Asheville

The moon is usually way more impressive in person than in photographs (especially iPhone ones). But tonight was the supermoon so I went out with my wife to find it. You can’t really tell that this photo is of the actual supermoon, but it is I tell ya.


And here is a bunny that was kind enough to stay still for me using 3200 ISO, 1/20 sec. shutter at 200mm. Because this was the same night as the supermoon, this is automatically a superbunny. “Goodnight Moon…”

Memorial Day. Thank you.

Thank you to the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country.

Mary Alice

This amazing woman turned 100 years old today. Six months ago I took a few portraits of Mary Alice at her home in North Carolina. She has the cutest sense of humor and kept joking about how I was taking too many photos of her. It’s remarkable to ponder all that she has been through and witnessed in 100 years. Happy birthday, Mary Alice!
