Suicide Prevention Rally- Capitol Hill

I recently covered a rally on Capitol Hill to support awareness and efforts to support suicide prevention in our nation.

Thanks to AFSP, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, for their good work, and  for the opportunity to be of service.

Duckboat - Jelly Roll Mortals CD

I recently got my copy of the new limited-edition Jelly Roll Mortals CD,"Duckboat." Great all-original stuff by Scott McKnight, Arch Alcantara, Kentucky Jim Faris, Bill Williams, and Steve Woehrle. These guys brew up a fine musical offering; well-crafted, thoughtful, with mighty tasty instrumental work and vocal harmonies. DC rock 'n roll royalty. (and I did the photo of them on the back cover). Enjoy.

AIMBE 2018

These are a selected few images I made of bio-medical research engineers for AIMBE, the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. Brilliant creative people, who do much good in the world.

These photographs were made in-camera on site, with a minimum of post-production work.

Wars are not over when the shooting ends

Murals I observed in Berryville, Virginia, both in the same alley behind a Mexican restaurant.

Confederate leaders Lee, Mosby, and Jackson on one, abolitionist heroes Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth on the other.

I choose democracy and equality.  We need to keep at it.

We all have miles to go before we sleep.

March for Our Lives

Photographs from the March For Our Lives, Washington DC, March 24, 2018.

Crowd estimates were in the 500,000 to 800,000 range.

It was a powerful, peaceful gathering to advocate for safety in our schools, and for sensible gun laws.
The gathering was sparked by the student survivors of the recent Parkland, Florida school massacre.
