A great old Portland house on Northeast Fremont. Their garden has been featured in Sunset...which is just about the time I took this. Canon T-90, Fuji Velvia.

Being a gardener offers a continual source of material, and getting in close, isolating flowers from their contexts and shooting in strong light often produces intriguing images. At least it continues to fascinate me. Here, we have a simple Rhody. Canon G10. The G10 has excellent macro capabilities.

Eagle Creek, Oregon

Can you just shoot nice pictures, Patterson? The great outdoors or something? On occasion, when I'm in the right place. Eagle Creek, on the road to Mount Hood, is one of those places. Canon T-90, Fuji Velvia.

Pacific Virgins

A couple of friends from the East Coast, seeing the Oregon Coast for the first time. In time-honored tradition, skies turned stormy. Soft, saturated colors, courtesy of slightly underexposed Fuji slide film at the end of the day. Canon AT-1, Fuji Velvia.

Weathered Door

Grab shot on a summer walk. Canon G10. I love stuff that's battered, weathered, rich with texture. All the world's another Jackson Pollock, waiting to be uncovered.
