Labor Day weekend has very nearly come and gone, as the traffic along the highway signifies the efforts of many to return home after the holiday. But I did not want to let this Monday, set aside more than one hundred years ago for the laborer, escape without saying "Thank You" to everyone for the work you do. Our society as we know it would cease to function without work.
Steve and Peggy Immel, photographer and painter, both with formidable talents in the art world, joined us for breakfast this morning. It was a joy to have the opportunity to talk and enjoy the world from the porch. I hope you were able to spend at least today enjoying the fruits of your labor.
until next Monday,
a passion for the image@

I agree with Catherine. These are sublime environmental portraits that take on a photojournalistic slant through your use of black and white. The baby in those strong hands speaks of parental love, the worker's arm in repose is made more powerful by what was left out and the direct gaze from the man on the scaffolding is riveting. Great stuff!
