In April of 2008,while visiting our friends,Reverend Tim Carson and his wife Kathy,my wife and I were treated to a tour of the city and the well known stock yards.As usual,I began taking numerous photographs of our varied surroundings,fascinated with street scenes and the city’s architectural landscape. As I viewed the photos on my computer,after coming back to St. Louis,I became aware of details,subtleties,colors and shapes I hadn’t particularly  noticed through the viewfinder. This was the creative spark,the genesis,for beginning a new body of work,some of the results of which are below.

    Isn’t it amazing what we will see if we will only really look. And then we see more than we saw . . .
