  4. Thank you for the introduction (and a family member, too!) Exceptional work.

    Like rare astrological events, one must be patient to photograph a Papillon (they have the attitude of a Border Collie and lounging is not an option). Sitting still, for instance, is an aberration and happens very infrequently. I bet Angelina and Hera would get along beautifully.

  8. Orton is definitely a gifted photographer! His compositions are quite masculine and he seems to focus mainly on dramatic long distance shots. Your photographs, on the other hand, are very feminine and relate in a more personal way with your subjects, whether human or an inanimate object. I enjoy & very much appreciate Orton's work but my personal taste leans a bit more towards yours.

  13. Fabulous photos, all of them. But I absolutely love the photo of the two men playing backgammon at the coffee house. It captures them in their "zone", immersed in their very important game. Thank you for sharing, again!
