Still in the Stream Videos

These videos focus on landscape photography, and how it can reduce our sense of agitation in the stream of life. Join me as I visit favorite locations, take photos of favorite subjects, and talk about beauty, nature, and the therapeutic value of contemplative photography, refuges, and places of solitude. I am proud of the sweet gale and marsh wren video and the portfolio Mushroom video.

  1. It was great finally meeting you this morning. I watched your video about Sabi and agree that there is beauty in the wounded and dying. The idea of positive aloneness is also important these days, as our smartphones tend to be our constant companion.


    1. Hey, thanks Wally, it was great meeting you too. Glad that the sabi video was watchable, I seldom know if I’m communicating clearly about these admittedly obscure and rarefied ideas. I keep trying, however, as they really seem to remain important to me. Anyway, thanks for checking out the site and leaving a comment, I really appreciate it!
