Holding Hands

This photo was taken in Arusha, Tanzania. It was out side a church after one of the children were baptized.

Wetlands Mud

This photo was taken at Cheng Long Taiwan. One of the artists, Ya Chu Kang had tried to walked out to her art work and found it rough going. She decided that the frog suit would work better. I think this photo contrasts nicely with my previously upload one with the clean hands and red finger nails.

Red Nails

Jane Ingram Allen taught paper making at the Santa Rosa Junior College. There were some very committed students. One had wonderful hands that had sparkly red paint.

Handmade Paper on a Tree

My wife is teaching a paper making class at Santa Rosa Junior College. One of the students formed her wet paper into the tree bark. It was drying and coming off the tree. It makes a beautiful relief sculptural paper. The paper is abaca from the Philippines.

Head Toting

I seem to be looking back on photos that I did a number of years ago. This could be because I’m trying to organize them into categories. This photo was taken on the street in Arusha Tanzania. It seems to have a blend of old and new, bland to bright colors and lots of stories.


Vietnamese venders were everywhere in this Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City day market. The women is selling dragon eyes and the man those “toys” that when moved giggle some part of their bodies.


These two women were attending the Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Arts Project held in a small village on the southwest coast of Taiwan. The photo was taken at Taiwan Night celebration.
