Raindrops On the Rear Window by Julia Mattingly-Horrigan

          This photograph, and the one below, represent a new direction in
          seeing for Ms Horrigan. It is discovery oriented and displays an
          elevated interest in common events that inevitably escape the
          regard of most people. Though both have been done spur of the
          moment, every element, of these two photographs, has been
          carefully considered in the post production presentation.

Quail Roost Farm, N.C. by Julia Mattingly-Horrigan

               Another lovely photograph from the lens of Julia. She certainly
               has beautiful settings in which to work. However, one can not
               count on beautiful settings unless one has the eye to include that
               which makes the photograph more than just a snapshot - as this
               one does.

Window Reflection, Law Center, Springfield, IL

           The only change was with hue and saturation which I took to extremes. The original image possessed an over all blueish/greenish cast. The windows were not flat, apparently not float glass, and were backed up by reflective draping of some sort.

Mr. Lincoln Talks With David N.Jones

On a warm afternoon in Springfield, IL my friends, wife and a stranger cornered
Mr. Lincoln and sat him down for a discussion of life in the mid 1800's. David N. Jones
of Oregon and Warren Council of California along with my wife, Alice, and a stranger
were intently taking in what the president had to say about past glory days. It was a very
interesting and enlightening conversation. As we all left the president continued to
meditate and ponder the situation.

                    A diagnosis of breast cancer is a devastating event.
                    It often brings on great depression and requires
                    a change in outlook. It requires acceptance.
                    It requires understanding and support;
                           especially from loved ones.

Quail Roost Farm, NC

                          Photograph by my friend, Julia Mattingly-Horrigan
                          who has taken an interest in making
                          fine photographs.

                          This locale is a wonderful place to live and work.
                          Gentle rolling country and peaceful meadows.
                          Serene and tranquil.

                          A lovely photograph that does
                          justice to the landscape and
                          in a very artistic manner.

Drive-By-Shooting, 11th St., Springfield, IL (Infrared Grab Shot)

            My files contain several thousand "Drive-By-Shooting" exposures. Most of them are
             shot at fairly high speed as Mrs. Hill drives me all over the landscape. I keep my
             little IR camera pointed out the window as she traverses the highways at around 70 MPH.
             I focus on things out of the corner of my eye hoping to catch instances of ephemeral
             landscape about which I have no idea of the parameters of composition or any sane consider-
             ation of technique. By the time I shoot more than 1/5th of a second has passed and the
             scene has been altered from that which caused me to press the shutter in the first place.
             Very few of these exposures are done within city speed zones. This photograph is one
              such example.
