This was taken in Remington, Ohio. A man was experimenting on
an ad campaign for a local bug exterminator.
This photo was taken through the store front window of Pizzaz Studios in Loveland.
It looked sad as summer was about over and the school year about to start.
The cicadas hit Loveland,
Ohio last summer. We have a
local coffee shop here called
the buZZthru, and I found this
text on their web site. The
owner, although a delightful
man, could not see the humor
here. Then again... maybe
there wasn't any. It is one of
those, quot;You had to be here
A comment on the buzzing of
about a bizillion cicadas
Never-the-less, I had great
fun photographing the
cicadas. I now have a vast
collection of close-up photos
of these wonderful creatures.

These brothers engage in the ancient sport whenever they can.
There is pretty serious competition among family members.

A photo I took as part of a series
to duplicate turn of the century
photos. The series was for an
exhibit at the Loveland Historical
Society. I received a grant from
the Ohio Arts Council to take the
photos, and this was my
favorite, and the favorite of
those attending the exhibit.
I used a handmade filter, and
deliberately over-exposed the
photographs, using an obscure
Kodak film for the series.
However when I applied for
another grant to the Arts
Council, submitting this photo as
an example of how I would do a
series I wanted to do on I never bothered to write back and explain - quot;That's
Loveland's Underground how they're supposed to look, old and crummy and
Railroad history, the Arts such, as if stored away in a cigar box for a century.quot; I
Council said I didn't take very just took there comment as a compliment on my
good photos. technique. I guess my photos did look quot;crummy.quot;
Justin lives not too far
from me - and the Little
Miami River, and
O'Bannon Creek. He
lives to fish, and often he
cuts our grass, so he has
some $'s to pay the
admission to a nearby
fishing lake where he will
spend the entire summer
This was a chance photo
- as I was on the Little
Miami River and he just
appeared through the
trees heading home with
I believe his love of
fishing is what has
helped him become so
independent, with such a
good work ethic.

Taken in Symmes Park in
Symmes Township, Ohio
I took this photo on a cold, windy, rainy morning in Union Township as the procession
bringing home the body of SSgt. Matt Maupin traveled up Rt. 32. After the photo was
published, the mom with her hands on her daulghter's shoulders, wrote to thank me for
publishing the photo, saying it brought her family, including her and her husband,
Sneaking into a private and intimate moment like this is done carefully. I always watch
eyes and body language, and know when to back away. Most people however, give
you permission to photograph them in a very subtle manner, without having to speak.
