|Welcome to Jay's Personal Web Pages!|
IF you've landed
here by accident or by search engine (same thing, really), this majorly
disorganized, re-organized webpage is now peachier, and with extra copious
whipped cream. No sugar added. The hot news from J-land is Jay's new blog. Well, new in 2010, and so far
much more dynamic than these much-neglected web pages. Hot artshow news
is on a cluttery page of its own, probably to be replaced after a while with
blog pages when time allows.
Jay the Photographer
Photographically, I lean toward a group of interests that I've developed over many years. Some are at long last ready for prime time. Some should have been discarded decades ago, but... well, I have trouble deciding which is which. My series include a fashion shoot in the mountains near Helen, Georgia. High fashion in the lush forest: some for art, some for commercial porpoises, but all fun. Then there's the Bard thing - Shakespearean drama regarding March's Ides in the amphitheatre at a city park. And of course the zoo. Not much is finer than roaming around Riverbanks Zoo snapping away with the digital camera. Here's a page to show off. A downtown digital photo excursion recorded zinnias and a grasshopper (has nothing to do with martial arts). Check out the Summer Gallery.
Jay's raison d'etre
in the picture is my mother. Without her I'd be nothing, to say the least. Alas, she's gone
to that Great Hair Salon in the Sky. The man on the left in this
picture is my step-father, James Logan. If you have a friend as good as
he, then you are fortunate indeed. This is a portrait by me, natch.
Snapped it with my 4x5 Calumet view camera in their den a few decades back.
current books? Thanks for asking! The newest
Jaybook deals with many of my favorite things, all at one time: photos,
coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Have a gander at Coffee Experience: Charleston, South
