Description The Chevrolet Apache was a 1/2 ton V-8 pickup made by General Motors from 1955 to 1959 and was part of Chevrolet's 'Task Force' series. In 1958, the Apache underwent a significant redesign of the front end featuring four headlights, instead of the previous two, and a shorter wider grille running the width of the front end. The only apparent change in the 1959 model was a larger and more ornate hood emblem and redesigned badging on the fenders.

This statement from Picasso sums up what photography does for me. Often in my day-to-day life, I forget about the beautiful things of this world. But, in pausing to photograph a glorious sunset or capture a reflection in water, I stop long enough to “dust” my soul of the everyday life and absorb the peace and serenity which surrounds me.
In my photographic art you will find an underlying theme of stillness - a quiet serenity - sprinkled with a hint of nostalgia. I find a spiritual joy in capturing the colors of nature’s palette; its hues blended by natural light. In an abandoned building, I revel in an imagined history and marvel at the bare essentials of its structure. I delight in the creation of a still life that can evoke emotion.
It is my intent to offer images which “dust” the soul. I can only hope that the peace and serenity I found while capturing these images will extend to others.
