Today is the sixth anniversary of my husband’s pet project, called ‘Scapes. He has been a photojournalist for the past thirty years at the News&Observer, the newspaper for Raleigh, NC. His regular duties, of course, are photographing house fires, ribbon-cuttings, graduations, crime scenes, State Fairs, fatal accidents, sports, politics, funerals, and endless other news features.
But for the past six years, he has also had a bimonthly column on Saturdays, where he can share the visions of beauty and magic that he really loves. His ‘Scapes column features the many faces of our Mother Goddess Earth, as well as the beauty of the everyday human world that we sometimes forget to really see.
To honor his work, the online site of the paper is running a six-year retrospective, a sort of online gallery. Because of copyright issues, of course, I can’t post his work here. But I do hope you’ll take a little time to visit this link and enjoy.
