With love, gratitude, and appreciation to Phyllis for all she does to make my life complete, and for our family—and her patience, strength, and fortitude in the face of life’s vicissitudes.

New print on Moab Entrada Rag Textured

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 01:09:15 +0000

The light box in this capture is turned off, so essentially it is a white background with ambient front lighting. I processed the image on my iPhone using […]
