HORSES of OCALA is this year's major project. A "coffee table" book featuring the horses and horse farms of Ocala, the Horse Capital of the World.

With more than 60 breeds, over 1500 horse farms, and hundreds of horse events throughout the year, I won't run out of photo opportunities and meeting horses and the people who love them.

One of my favorite pictures from this year's Horse Capital Parade, where White Barn Press was the official photographer, is one of the Royal Horses, owned by Peninsula Farm. Check out GALAOFTHEROYALHORSES.COM for more information about their performances.

Horse Lovers

Over the years there's a recurring theme in many of the pictures I take. It's the love and affection humans and horses share. The strong bond of affection that ties us together.

NO TOLL ROAD . . . Blog on

During the weeks, now months of quarantine and shut-down, I am grateful for technology. It allows me to continue down my creative path and stay connected with friends, documenting and appreciating the small things in life and the beauty that surrounds us here on the forest. Taking photographs, mixing and matching to tell the story with just a few words and mostly images. Not only is this the year of the infamous Corona Virus, it is the year of the dreaded Toll Road that threatens to cut a wide, noisy and unnecessary swath through our paradise here on the Goethe Forest in Levy County Florida. In my own small way I have joined the fight. Thank you Kim. We inspire each other.

"It's not the writing that's hard..."

Day 14 of "stay-at-home." How many closets can I clean?? A better use of my time, sort through the thousands of horse photos and keep looking for the gems. Good advice for any of us who take a lot of photos on our phones or with a DSL camera. While I prefer my Nikon, there's no question that smart phones take some pretty great photos. This one of Trueno, an Andalusian stallion and one of Sylvia Zerbini's lead horses is my pal, I get to walk him before performances. Zen moments!
