Photo: Ian's Funeral

Ian Kilmer's funeral. From left are his wife (my mother) Gale Kilmer, Ian's daugher Kelly Kilmer Harding, mom's cousin Patti Kalish, Ian's oldest son Randy Kilmer. They were watching as Ian's casket was loaded into a hearse following his funeral at St. Eugene's Catholic Church in Asheville, NC. It's all about the light and the content.


Photo: Mom's Foot

While visiting my mother in Asheville, I accompanied her to a visit with her podiatrist. I loved the light and was intrigued by the content. One frame, then my camera battery died. Enjoy. 8/28/08.

Photo: Tomatoes on the Window Sill

I'm trying a vegetable garden in the back yard for the first time in years. Just tomatoes and squash. Maybe more next year. Anyway, this is some of the fruits of my labor. It's all about the color, baby.

Photo: Rainbow Fish

It's only a little bluegill, but its coloring reminds me of Marcus Pfister's Rainbow Fish. Presque Isle State Park. Erie, Penn. 6/15/08.

Video: Searching for emerald ash borer beetles

Here's another video I shot recently. It shows how a couple of Pennslyvania Department of Agriculture interns set traps for emerald ash borer beetles, which are an invasive bug that's killing trees in the midwest and has been found in a couple Pennsylvania counties. My favorite still photo from the shoot is below. 6/6/2008.

Emerald ash borer program surveyor Bethany Addis checks a net after sweeping the lower branches of an ash tree June 6 at Frontier Park in Erie. Addis, 24, who is an Edinboro University masters biology student, is interning with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture this summer. Her job this summer is to set an Ash Borer trap in every 1.5 square miles of Erie County for the invasive emerald ash borer, which has been found in ash trees in counties south of Erie. The beetle lays its eggs in the trees and the larve feed on the wood, eventually killing the tree. 6/6/2008.
