This is wild.
Instagram’s transformation into QVC is now complete and absolute. Instagram is dead — or at least the Instagram I knew and loved is dead. It is no longer part of my photographic journey.
This is why I’m happy to have my own photography website. Social networks come and go, but at least there I’ll always be in control of how my photography is presented. Perhaps it’s time to bring POSSE back.

The dawn of a new era in astronomy has begun as the world gets its first look at the full capabilities of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, a partnership with ESA (European Space Agency) and CSA (Canadian Space Agency). The telescope’s first full-color images and spectroscopic data were released during a televised broadcast at 10:30 a.m. EDT (14:30 UTC) on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. These listed targets below represent the first wave of full-color scientific images and spectra the observatory has gathered, and the official beginning of Webb’s general science operations. They were selected by an international committee of representatives from NASA, ESA, CSA, and the Space Telescope Science Institute.
Absolutely breathtaking. The level of detail in the images captured by the JWSS is nothing short of astonishing, especially when compared to Hubble.
I talked a little bit about my photography to Jackson Hole Magazine.
I’m extremely honored that one of my photographs has been shortlisted in London’s Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year People’s Choice Awards, which is now open for votes.
