My Favorite Pictures

This is an attempt to pare down the huge number of my favorite photographs to a reasonable number. These are the favorites of my favorites.

Don’t ask me what makes a picture an all-time favorite. I might really like the picture, it might hold a special memory, or who knows…

Self and Sky. Resting in the wilderness. [1 picture]

Ginger & Sprinky – When you can’t get any work done because your cat likes Bach’s Cello Suites as much as you do… [30 sec. Video]

Unrequited Joy. Once again, photographically, ‘Sappho’ and ‘The Bubble’ stole the show. [3 pictures]

Color photograph of Gary Allman enjoying the Sunset at Table Rock Missouri (Piney Creek Wilderness).

R&R – Rest and Recuperation. Gary looks out over the Piney Creek Arm of Table Rock Lake. [2 pictures]

Walkway

Decimation. The lower ground alongside the creek took quite a beating during the recent rain and this area must have looked very impressive when Woods Fork flooded. [3 pictures]

Edge – Getting near the glades on the Busiek Red / Yellow Trail. [4 pictures]

Overlooking Woods Fork. At the top of the ridge of the Yellow/Silver trail I’ve noticed a side-trail. [4 pictures]

Beginning of the Hike [2 pictures]

One of my favorite pictures from today’s hike.

Saturday I attended a Christian Formation meeting at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Clinton. [6 pictures]

Duotoned photograph of people sitting and standing outside a barn eating and conversing in the twilight

Inner circle, outer circle, circle of friends, circle of trust, running in circles, circles … everywhere.

Film noir style photograph of Storybook Barn Rogersville, Missouri at dusk

This photograph is begging to have its story told. Which is appropriate given the name of the venue – Storybook Barn. I wonder what the story might be?

Twentieth Century Art Gallery at Crystal Bridges

Unfortunately this gallery was closed. It made up for it by making a great picture though.

Working in the dark provides its challenges and rewards. I came to Crystal Bridges hoping to be inspired, I was. [4 pictures]

Photograph of a Hibiscus flower in Black and white

When I noticed the sunlight dappling the flower I decided to take the picture, no matter how twee hibiscus flower pictures are. Thinking about it; for a better shot I should have got the sunlight in the background behind the stamen.

Photograph of a writing desk in a rustic environment

I like this crop so much I wish I’d taken this as a separate picture. However, the wider shots I took came out pretty good too. [3 pictures]

I recently visited a friend who is converting a barn on their property into a wedding and event venue. While I was there I took a few pictures. This is probably an unrepeatable picture, as very shortly the clear pane is going to be replaced with frosted glass. Their website: www.storybookbarnmo.com

One of the very first photographs I took when I bought my first digital camera.

Lanie had an ensemble role in this year’s school musical – Big Fish. She had seven costumes and 14 costume changes … [46 pictures]

A carpet of full leaves in a painterly view of browns and yellows

A Carpet of Fall Leaves. I really like the full frame version of this image, but I love how this close-in crop brings out what I call a ‘painterly rendering’ from the camera. [2 pictures]

Fr. Jonathan Frazier, Rector, St. Peter & All Saints, Kansas City, Missouri. This was a picture I took partly for work, and partly for myself.

Hathersage and Hope from Higgar Tor

Hathersage and Hope from Higgar Tor. [3 pictures]

Sometimes while I’m working I spot a picture that I want to take for myself, this is the second of the two pictures I took while documenting the area confirmation service at St. James’ here in Springfield. I was taking a last look around the church for any little architectural details I might want to …

Sometimes while I’m working I spot a picture that I want to take for myself, here’s the first of two examples taken from a series of pictures I took at a confirmation service. I had positioned myself out of the way next to the acolytes so that I could move about the church without disturbing …

Original caption: “Best part of three weeks away and I’m overrun by ironing.” When I took the original version of this picture I had just returned to the UK from my first visit to see Ginger in the US. The washer dying today reminded me of the photograph, it was a rejected picture from my …

Color photograph of the Kauffman Center For The Performing Arts, Kansas City. The picture shows the blue of the sky reflected in the metal sheathing and is complemented by a stip of yellow-brown grass around the base.

I popped out of the diocesan office in Kansas City for a meeting and found myself in a pastiche of Sydney, Australia. Despite the 25°F temperature I had to stop and take a picture, the light and colors were just too good to miss. It was a long day – We left at 06:30 a.m. …
