PHOTOGRAPHY

CREATIVE PROJECTS

There are numerous areas of photography I am interested in exploring.  I continue to studying with renown photographers and work on new techniques.  Often this involves new subjects, new ways of looking at the world and people and new people to meet.  Most of all I am walking outside my comfort zone, looking at the world from a  different angle and touching new lives.

MAJOR RENOVATIONS

TO OUR NEW HOME. Follow along as Clifford and I renovate a 90 year old house and make a new home.  It requires demolition, re-plumbing, rewiring, some construction, 6 bathroom upgrades, 1 kitchen design and $$$. Watch as we do some things ourselves, (Well, Margaret–not CLIFF !!!) make design decisions and invariably make mistakes too. (Hopefully, not BIG ones !!)

Hong Kong Day 6
Hong Kong-Day 6, The Wedding !!

Hong Kong – Day 6, The Wedding It finally arrived!! The Wedding Celebration, which is why we made the trip to Hong Kong. Nelsilya married Lyman Cummings Doyle. Just to refresh your memory, if you asked us, Lyman Doyle is the son of a good friends, Rosemary and Terry Doyle. Rosemary was a journalist colleague of my Aunt Sissy’s (Margaret) at TIME magazine for years. I met the family in 1989 on my first trip to China and Hong Kong. I remained in contact as I returned to Hong Kong numerous times on business and have met with various family members through the years in New York City. Rosemary and Terry came through Knoxville in 2012. Their children, Lyman, the groom, and Lucy, his sister, were teenagers when I first met them. They both have lived fascinating and purposeful lives. I was honored to be invited to celebrate this occasion. I guess you can tell which one […]

Hong Kong Day 5
Hong Kong-Day 5

Hong Kong – Day 5 In this fabulous adventure, we are taking a day to recoup from all the walking and sightseeing of the past week.  In a new place, with the adrenaline speeding through, one tends to try to do everything !!!!  And we certainly have… Up until now the weather has been overcast with low-lying clouds.  The tops of the mountains (THE PEAK) have been covered in mist.  Therefore, there has not been much of a view from the “top of the world”!!!  UNTIL TODAY.  We are striking out to visit THE PEAK and we hope the weather holds.  It seems to change around here on the hour… We are taking the PEAK TRAM, an 18 minute ride from behind the Bank of China Building to the TOP of HONG KONG Island.  The tram is the quickest and most scenic way to arrive at The Peak, which rises 1,818 feet and is the highest viewing point on […]

Hong Kong-Day 4

We Walked 18,100 Steps. Touring the business section of Hong Kong Island today, we log over 18,000 steps. Included in the tour is the world’s longest escalator and walkway system.  It starts in the Central area and goes to Mid-Levels. It is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world. The entire system covers over 2,600 ft (almost 9 football fields) in distance and rises over 443 ft from bottom to top. That’s like a 41 story building.  The escalators runs downhill from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and runs uphill from 10:30am to midnight. So, after we arrive at the top, we must choose between walking down all those stairs or continuing in a loop across Hong Kong.  That path takes us to The Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. It is one of the oldest zoological and botanical centres in the world. Colton, of course, follows the signs to a Children’s Playground and instantly has a few more friends. After walking […]

West High Prom 2014

West High School Prom, 2014   As the PROM Season in Knoxville, TN draws close, I wish to share some PROM images from the past few years. I was asked by the Mom of a favored Senior Client, Ellie McCammon, to photograph Ellie and her date before their PROM in the Spring of 2014. Ellie’s Mom, Kiki McCammon, admitted to leaving photos in her camera and iphone “WAY TOO LONG”. After working together on Ellie’s Senior Portraits, Kiki knew she would have a small album of the PROM photos prepared in time for Ellie’s birthday. Ellie’s Senior Shoot, in the Fall of 2013, has been one of my favorites as we were at her family property on the edge of Maryville. And her Mom, Kiki, is now an angel in the company of the Almightly. As tribute to Kiki McCammon I have also included the family photo which sums up her family, the important things in […]
