There are some subjects that stand out as having changed my life in fundamental ways.
This section will present photographs of those subjects, hopefully with more narrative than
I usually include with my other subjects.


The First Series that reflects my special Love
is that of the PowWows I've attended over the years.
At the heart of any PowWow is thedrumming circle (pictured below).
They provide the rhythm for the dancers, set the type of dance,
encourage the audience and generally set the tone for the day.
The larger PowWows frequently have alternating drum circles.

The second series came from my vacation to Alaska
i was supposed to go with my BFF, Carla.
A few weeks before our trip, she fell ill
and was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.
These pictures are presented in tribute to her.
