Hot Lips (Sesbania punicea)
This is a "macro" shot of a tiny wildflower at the quarry on the east side of Highway 165 just north of Pollock, La. I stop to photograph at the quarry as often as I can; it is a place of strange beauty, both barren and incredibly rich at the same time. I stopped there on my way home from Camp Hardtner about a week ago and found the most amazing wildflowers blooming.

Overcast Sunrise, Iowa
I took this photo many years ago--mid- to late-70s--with my first SLR camera, a Pentax with 50mm prime lens, on Kodak Ektachrome slide film. I was in a boat with either my father or older brother and I'm pretty sure we were on Coralville Reservoir near Iowa City, Iowa. We were bass fishing, probably at a bass fishing tournament.
This is still one of my all-time favorite photographs.
