On June 24th 2012 at 1:35pm I lost my best friend and best buddy, my pooch Klaus. He passed on to the Rainbow Bridge at almost 13 years old....quite a long life for a German Shepherd. It has been a tough thing to deal with and I miss him more and love him than I can ever say. He taught more about life and loving than anyone I have ever known and I know one day he and I will be reunited. This July 4th while everyone was waiting for the fireworks to happen, I headed down to Chatfield State Park with the ashes of my best friend to spread them out in his favorite spot where he is now free.

There is an old Blackfoot Indian proverb that says "What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."


Some of these images, the forest abstractions are very personal to me. Taken right after Klaus' ashes were spread, I would like to think that it is an homage to him and it tells a story. For just beyond the trees, I know he is there waiting for me....where we will be together once again.
