These cheap Clyde Butcher replicas (can't afford his actual work - but this helps me dream that maybe one day....!), If you don't know him, you should definitely check him out as his photographic methods are a bit unique and his studio out in the middle of the Everglades is by far a worthy stop. It is amazing how beautiful he makes the swampy locale.

His creative talent, like many artists, is unique among a small minority. However, all of us have the potential to tap into and develop a creative sense of some variety, as well written in Sir Ken Robinson's The Element. We may not make money from it and it may not be the traditional type of creativity, but it is there. Fostering its growth can have intrinsic rewards as well as innovative results for our collective society. It is time to allow for more emphasis and attention on the creative process and product, especially in its role in our future. Naples, FL


  1. Excellent shot! Love the contrast of the light purple and the frames!

  2. I like this - and I did not know about Clyde Butcher. His work looks wonderful. So nice to have inspiration. I don't look at photography as a possible money maker but I do want to keep improving and get a few shots which make me feel I'm getting there. Your shots inspire.
