On this page I will highlight some of my upcoming/current photography events. 

January 11, 2007:  I led a presentation titled Digital Photography:
Understanding your new camera

at the Oak Park Public Library. This 1.5 hour program drew about 100 people. A special thank you to the Oak Park Public Library Public Information Officer, Debby Prieser for great assistance getting the word out.

November 29, 2006:  In mid October I took a photographic to some of my favorite areas of the Great American Southwest Landscape. In Death Valley National Park I ventured to the very remote area of Devil’s Racetrack Playa to view and photograph the mysterious “moving rocks”. This very special place has university geologists mystified. Boulders are known to “travel” over the perfectly flat Playa by unknown forces. Some of these rocks weigh as much as a half-ton. Google “moving rocks Death Valley” for background.


I also spent some time photographing the fantastic Joshua Tree National Park. I was blessed with glorious sunrise light.  Photographs from from this October 2006 trip will soon appear on my commercial site, on the DesertDetours page.
