"Spirit Lady"
  • "Spirit Lady"
  • Color Photography | 11" x 14"
  • photography in various sizes and prices-matted
  • This is a picture that I took of a spiritual lady,that an artist created on the wall of the "Mystery Castle",on South Hill in Arizona. She really stands out because she is next to a stone wall. The contrast in colors is very easy on the eyes and calming~ This picture is an 8x10 that I double matted and placed into a golden yellow colored mat to enhance her outfit and the aura above her head.. She's all above love and acceptance~ Signed with Haiku verse on reverse side~

"Spirits"
  • "Spirits"
  • Color Photography | 11" x 14"
  • This photo was taken on South Hill in Arizona at the Mystery Castle, which is a castle that was designed and created by a man for his bride. The most amazing thing about it is however, that he built it all out of scrap, and discarded materials. It is one of the coolest places to visit because you find out just how creative he could be,and how artistic. The inside of the castle has murals on the walls. This is one of my favorites that I call "Spirits". It is close to the Chapel that resides inside of the mystery castle.There is so much to see there, and yet so many pictures to take~ I have written an original Haiku that will come with this double-matted, signed print.

"Hawaiian Hibiscus Red"
  • "Hawaiian Hibiscus Red"
  • Color Photography | 11" x 14"
  • I took this photo on Hawaii;the Big island. There were beautiful red hibiscus flowers everywhere.I could not resist stopping every now and then to study them, and compare them to the orchids. One year I was there very close to the Holidays and decided that I wanted a special holiday photo for some cards.I decided on this close up of the red hibiscus with yellow stamen and green leaves.I double matted it and framed the beauty of the flower with 1st a light green matt and then a traditional Hawaiian leave like matt over it, which really enhanced the shot. This photo comes signed, along with a special original Haiku verse written by me~

"Just Rope"
  • "Just Rope"
  • Color Photography | 11" x 14"
  • I had so much fun with this photo. It is just a picture of some heavy duty rope that I found while treking around an old Coffee Plantation in Kona, Hawaii. I toyed with the idea of shooting it in different lights and at different angles, but in the end, I really liked this simple straight-forward picture the very best;and when I double-matted it with the cranberry frame around the earth-toned rope,I was pleased, because I felt my simplicity had paid off. This photo comes signed, double matted and with it's own original Haiku~

"Best of Red"
  • "Best of Red"
  • Color Photography | 11" x 14"
  • I love this picture because I had to work really hard to get it. I call it the "Best of Red" because this was one of the best pictures that I was able to capture of a red cardinal in his own habitat;while I was in Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii. I spent over 4 long hours following this bird who just would not stay still long enough for me to get a good shot. Persistance paid off and I guess that I finally wore him out! He posed in perfect profile for me,as I finally snapped away~ This signed photograph is double matted in a bright yellow mat so that the red of my beautiful cardinal will stand out even more! I have also written an original Haiku to go with this photo~

"Hoover Dam"
  • "Hoover Dam"
  • Color Photography | 11" x 14"
  • I took this picture of Hoover Dam which was built between 1931-1935, and actually opened in 1936. This dam was once known as Boulder Dam, even though it was never built in the original area of Boulder Canyon. It was instead created in Black Canyon which was the ideal site. Hoover Dam is a concrete arch gravity dam in Black Canyon, of the Colorado River on the border between two U.S. States; those being, Arizona and Nevada. It lies between Clark County in Nevada and Mohave County in Arizona.It is one of the top 10 construction achievements of the 20th century. It draws more crowds than it ever did 70+ yrs,after it's creation. Hoover Dam draws over 1 million visitors per year. The location is perfect for tourism as it is just outside of Las Vegas, creating Lake Mead. The cost of construction was $49 Million dollars. One of the most famous pictures taken of Hoover Dam was taken by Ansel Adams in Black and White in 1942.
