If you happen to like bald, muscular, incredibly handsome Swedish soccer players who pose for Calvin Klein (I'm just sayin'), then take a look at Freddie. Interestingly, there is not much to be found online about his personal life (i.e. love life), so we can only guess.....and hope.

I find it hard to believe that he has been gone thirty-nine years. What a beauty.

I am greatly saddened by the recent demise of the wonderful blog Camera Obscura. It was one of the greats and my favorite. It seems that CO ran out of space on it's account and started CO2 but that surely didn't last very long. Don't know what happened, but if any one can enlighten me, I 'd appreciate it. Meanwhile, CO....RIP. It was great while it lasted.


Here are some shots of a very handsome man that I hope will get me back in your good graces. His name is Matus Valent and that's all I need to say. I do still prefer the black and white stuff over color any day.


Yeah, it's been almost a month since I last posted. Ya know....ya get busy......yada yada..... But it's spring in Oregon and I can hardly resist being outside every moment that it isn't raining. The fish in our pond are spawning and the blue heron that patrols our yard is on high alert to all the activity. The Siberian Iris have bloomed as have the Lilac and Laburnum. The roses are pushing and the scent is hypnotic. I just find it hard to spend a lot of time in the basement where the office is. I'll try to do better....maybe.
