These portraits were created a while back for the LSO. I really enjoy classical music, especially from the Russian composers, Sergei Rachmaninoff is my favorite. Specifically: Prelude in C sharp minor, Op. 3/2.

Spring is here -tomatoes.

I was asked to photograph inside some greenhouses on the Purdue campus on a cold snowy day recently. This researcher is working on technology to grow better tasting tomatoes commercially, using less energy. She invited me back for taste testing. I just started my own tomato seeds, and actually took away some ideas from this shoot that I may apply to my own garden this summer.
