I have been a generalist photographer for many years. However, some years back I became enchanted with a Great Egret, one thing led to another and now I mostly photograph birds. Especially birds in flight. That led me to wondering about how birds move through the air. (I still hold a pilot’s license and have long been interested in physics of flight.) So my wondering turned into an exploration.
The result? An emerging book, Avianautics, the Art and Science of Flapping Wings, a photographic exploration of how birds fly.
Where am I? Most days I am in Sausalito, California where I live on a floating home. The view above is from the north end of Sausalito Harbor looking across the bay at San Francisco on a day when the sun was hidden by the smoke from a forest fire.
No, not a motor driven ‘houseboat.’ My home has a 20 by 40 foot concrete hull and is actually a regular house floating on the water. It doesn’t travel anywhere, just rises and falls with the tide.
