I have photographed 44 years; 37 years film, the rest digital. When I moved to New Mexico (from North Dakota) in 2010, I got my first digital camera and started doing landscapes and churches. I convert many of them to Black and White, using a technique called chromatic grayscale conversion. I enjoy the quest of locating, finding the landscapes and churches and capturing not only an image, but the spirit, the unique personality, the phenomena that sometimes occurs. For the landscapes, the phenomenon may  include the varying climate, light, luminance, composition. For me, this is the idea of ‘natural phenomena’. For the churches, the phenomenon may include the creativity of the artisans who constructed them; the indigenous materials; the unique personality. For me, this is the idea of ‘elemental phenomena’. Often I wait for the full moon to illuminate the scene; to reveal a bit of its secrets, its texture, colors, emotions, that emerge only at night.
