Here’s a slice of contemporary American life from the heartland-the 48th Annual Connealy Angus Spring Bull Sale. This multi-generational family operation is dedicated to improving the genetics of the Angus breed of cattle. Their bulls are bred for hardiness, mellow disposition, great beef production and ability to pass these traits along. The bulls are raised on the rich grasses of the Nebraska Sandhills using ATV’s without use of horses or dogs. Each bull in this artificial insemination program is extensively characterized as to pedigree, phenotype and genotype which collectively provide significant progeny predictive information. More than 400 individuals from throughout the US, South America, Scotland and Canada attended the 2017 Spring sale. The 400+ yearling bulls are penned by sire group and buyers assess them up close. The top bull sold for $275,000. While I’ve attempted to provide a photographic glimpse of the sale, the images do not capture the warmth and graciousness of the Connealy family, the interest and enthusiasm of the returning and new buyers and the smoothness of the operation.

All across the plains, several types of structures are used to store the harvest. I like the old wooden ones. Often delapidated, they nonetheless serve as reminders of the source of the nation's "breadbasket."

Walking the dog these Fall mornings, I'm struck by the variety and beauty of leaves. Windy conditions, the dog pulling on the leash and other factors conspire to make excellent photography difficult. Here are a few of the views from the Mile High City.

Here are a few images from early mornings on the Isle of Mon. Often foggy, always very peaceful and relaxing.
The phrase “decisive moment” implies a degree of spontaneity that is often not the case. To catch a critical moment one does not merely look and snap, but rather stops and looks, taking the time to observe a space, evaluate the visual possibilities, and then, wait for all the elements to come together before releasing the shutter, sometimes multiple times.
Robert Anderson’s collection of portraits of pay-for-play “chessmen” in Union Square Park is a good example of this. On his commute through the Park, Anderson observed these players, their boards set up on makeshift tables, ready to play all comers for a small wager. Stopping along the way to or from the subway, he has photographed them since 2010, recognizing the regulars and their opponents. Twenty portraits of these players are now on view in the Robert Anderson Gallery.
Entering the back room one feels like an observer in the middle of the action. The 11 x 14 pigment prints are framed in white mats and hung in two rows. The faces are closely cropped, mostly from the chin to the forehead, and shot as horizontal images that provide only a small bit of out-of-focus background to place the subject in the context of the street. Taken while the players were in the “game,” these are not posed portraits. The faces are rich with texture and, printed in black and white, offer no clue as to what decade they might have been taken. Aside from the close horizontal cropping, what unites these images and makes them a cohesive body of work is the reflection of a chessboard in the eyes.
In several images the subject appears to look impassively at the viewer, sometimes with the slightly superior smile of a master. Generally, however, the player is not looking directly at the viewer but at the board, brows furrowed, presenting a façade of utter concentration on the game. But since they are playing on the street, they are “players” in more than one sense of the word and must allocate at least a modicum of attention to their surroundings, if only to note who is watching and who might be their next opponent.
While I don’t normally associate close-up portraits with street photography, this body of work definitely fits within that genre. And in a digital world where color is the norm, consciously suppressing color in digital media to concentrate the viewer’s eye on the essentials of the image is a welcome continuation of a tradition that works quite well here.
One of the great things about New York City is the multitude of small independent stores and shops. They are disappearing quickly!

Always "action" here. Protests, performers, speed chess, vendors of "art," sand painters, food trucks, Farmer's Market, a new generation of hippies. You name it, you can find it here. All pretty orderly and peaceful. A haven for people watchers.
The High Line is a public park built on an abandoned elevated rail line on the west side of Manhattan. Now comprised of a beautiful walkway with lush vegetation, it is crowded during the day.

I walk about 6 blocks through the heart of mid-town Manhattan's commercial district several mornings a week and in SOHO about twice a month early Sunday mornings. I am continually impressed with the store windows-imaginative, often colorful, always changing. Here are some views rendered in black and white with glass reflections thrown in.
