Foggy Swamp,
Foggy Beach

After I retired from my income earning career I began indulging my lifelong passion for photography even though I was in the physical you see in the picture on the left. My real life photography work won some awards, was published, and I even had a magazine cover. So I was happy! I had the ability to make photographs that people thought were good and some would even pay for.

My image is at the house in Cushing Maine where the artist Andrew Wyeth painted “Christina’s World” in 1948. My image is a preliminary image that is part of a study of an updated version I had planned to make.

I have always identified with Christina even though thanks to modern technology my world is broader than Christina’s. I don’t live in Maine but my image was made there. At the time I could still travel so I make a trip there to attend a photography workshop.

Sadly my physical condition deteriorated further so now I can hardly venture out of my house. Eventually I decided to make images in the virtual world of Second Life. But I never made images that people seemed to think were  good. I thought I must have lost it (Whatever it is.)

Foggy Swamp,
Foggy Beach

Thursday morning I got a very pleasant surprise and justification. After years of trying my photograph “Foggy Beach” won the Kultivate Magazine Image of the day. I guess I still got it!
