A Grey Day at the Beach

Turning Low Contrast into Black and White

The ocean is one of my favorite locations to photograph. It has grown into a long-term project dealing with the constant change and the conflict between people and the protection from the barrier island beaches. This work represents a cloudy day that was very grey and low contrast – not a great black and white […]

However, the sand has seasons and to those that live on an island, the seasons of the sand are evident. The summer sand is my favorite.

The dirt was manually taken into the construction area with wheelbarrows and a surveyor sited the next drilling site. All the […]

White Street Sewer Construction

The second short stretch is in the works, and significant work is left to do. I have been talking with the subcontractors […]
