"…Since animals have played an important role in life with me, I thought I would share a few of their portraits. There have been many so here are a few…will share more later."
Original fine art color photographic print of a Costa Rican native, the Toucan. This print is unmatted and includes a close up of a toucan.
Toucan as your totem….”Dare to be different, exciting and bold as he will add more color to all areas of your life. He will show how to do this while balancing vitality with grounding properties. Toucan shows that you can be vocally strong with all of the resources you have….”

“The art of storytelling in photography, to me, is photojournalism. It gives me the freedom to follow where my heart leads me, to capture and show something as it is but also leave room for the viewer’s interpretation. The reality of a photo may seem obvious to one but, in truth, many stories can be told from that one photo. Take this one for an example…”
This is Little Nina.
We found her on the side of the road in Cleveland Ohio, covered in mud and getting splashed by cars. I picked her up with intentions of nursing her back to health. The vet was kind enough to give me a free exam, which was enough to tell me that she has a severe upper respiratory infection and extreme malnutrition. Her eyes were glued shit with yellow gunk when I found her. And the vet told me that she thought she was about 5 weeks old, but was the size of a 3 week old kitten.
We already have two cats, both of which are rescues. We have plans on keeping her, but this was such a surprise for us, we didn’t have time to budget in another cat. I was able to get a sample sized tube of antibiotics for her eyes, but she is going to need more very soon. And eventually she will need to be spayed.
I don’t want to have to give her up because we can’t afford to keep her. Nina has a gofundme account set up for her vet bills. Please send what ever you can afford. She would greatly appreciate the chance to survive and stay in a nice warm home.
I don’t have much to offer for rewards, but this blog will follow Nina’s journey as she grows into a healthy cat! If you leave your address with a donation, we will send you a picture of her (when she is plump and healthy!) and a thank you letter.
Nina thanks you for taking the time to read this post! And may karma bring the best of luck your way!

“Inertia happens but you don’t have to make it a lifelong friend. Show up and make the most of it. Know “this, too, shall pass” and move on. Even a little step is better than no step at all.
When feeling weary or discouraged, a turn around is just ahead so proceed in its direction. Do what you must do to work through the emotions (journal, paint, walk, go out with friends, volunteer…whatever works for you) but don’t stop. If a temporary rest is needed, do it, but give it a time limit….”
Breathtaking views show the stars, Milky Way, airglow, and light pollution over New Zealand skies.
"Here are images I captured during last months from New Zealand. Great country to catch colors of airglow almost everywhere…" - Petr Horálek
