So it's been a minute.

Okay, a looooooooooong minute, since your faithful reporter has checked in with a blog, updating my recent photographic exploits.

There is a good reason for that though, as I've been working on finishing my upcoming book "Seasons," so most of my...

I went into 2018 with the thought of "different."

I also went into 2018 with the thought of "Geez, Robert, don't break your other arm," since I rang in the new year with my left arm in a brace and a sling from a freak accident just before Christmas 2017, but I digress....

It doesn't seem possible that it has been five years since Mom's passing on December 2, 2013.

But alas, that much time has passed since Mom earned her wings and found the healing and peace she so longed for in her life. Mom suffered a major stroke in December 2004; and...

Autumn has not been very kind to these mountains the past few years.

There were the horrific wildfires in 2016 that left much of my area gasping for air most days, and nearly destroyed my favorite home away from home, Gatlinburg (see my blog "From The Ashes.") I somehow...

So (until now, anyway) I skipped over what I did over the summer.

That's because, in a lot of ways, this summer felt like a "lost weekend" of sorts, trying to find my photographic "voice" again after a period of real uncertainty in my work. Simply put (and I alluded to...

So the first part of my spring found me trying hard to avoid repeating myself (See my prior blog "Looking For New"), tossing a spanner into the works to keep things fresh for myself, mainly because I get bored so easily. The trip to Breaks Interstate Park did the trick...

June 17, 2018

The never-ending winter (which seemed like a real life version of "Groundhog Day," with Yours Truly playing the role of Bill Murray) finally gave way to spring; but, just like last year, there was a real sense that I was repeating and reiterating myself again (just lik...

My intention for this past Saturday was to head up to Boone for the private reception for all the finalists in the Appalachian Mountain Photography Competition at the Turchin Center at Appalachian State University. I wasn't a finalist this year; but given that I'd shoc...

January 7, 2018

On a rainy Friday, just before Christmas, in a singular, freak moment that night - I slipped on wet concrete, my feet giving way from under me, with all 200 of my pounds landing on my left wrist and arm as I vainly tried to break my fall.....

And I knew as soon as I lan...

December 12, 2017

And just like that - in a flash - another year has come and gone. It's absolutely true - the older you get, the faster that life seems to roll on by. Wasn't it just last week when I was chasing snow in Saluda and shooting spring blooms in Charleston, all in the same cr...
