"The most transitory of things, a shadow, the proverbial emblem of all that is fleeting and momentary,
may be fettered by the spells of our natural magic, and may be fixed forever in the position which it seemed only destined
for a single moment to occupy."
William Henry Fox Talbot

For 2014 I am going from 20x24 inches to much larger paper
in my exploration of the "natural magic" of photography.
One of these larger works is now on view at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art
in the new exhibition, Heavenly Bodies, that will close May 25.
