Alligator in the swimming pool: New Orleans
Closer view, only by zoom lenses on my part…*LOL* on my trip into the city of New Orleans, La, December 14, 2005

A flickr friend of mine has been doing work down in Katrina torn New Orleans lately.
Yesterday she came across this little surprise in an abandoned swimming pool.
Look before you leap.
As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work.
My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.
My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
Man, We have “Beware of Alligators” signs down here.
This is common! God Bless New Orleans!
