Creature Feature: Carolina Chameleon

We're minding the home front down on the Carolina coast for my daughter while she and hubby are away at a meeting.Other than two soccer games and one birthday party, we havent gotten far from the home base.One of these days I will have to come down with the intention of getting out to a seashore wildlife preserve with my camera. The back porch was as far as I made it this trip, and this was the extent of the wildlife available.My 6-yr-old photographic assistant could not resist getting too close too fast to our subject--a Carolina Anole.

And that's okay. It's quiet here.But if I want to stay out of debt, I need to show … Continue Reading ››

About The Light: About the Photographer

This is from the ABOUT page at my Etsy Store. I like the fact that this site for commerce does not neglect to let the artists and craft folks share their personal story: the WHY and the WHO of their creativity. The WHAT will hopefully sell itself.
I got my first camera, a Minolta, in 1970--the same month I got married and started grad school at Auburn University. As a recent convert to field botany, I needed a way to share what I saw in the wild.Forty years and a half-dozen cameras later, I've shared my image … Continue Reading ››
