thepiper

I owe the rather odd name of this site to my wonderful aunt "Ang," who helped raise my brother and me in our early years. Ang decided our given names weren't descriptive enough so Doug became "Pug" and I answered to "The Piper." Thankfully, nobody ever called us by those pet names except for Ang, but hearing it now makes me think of her and I smile. The photography I've collected in these galleries are similar glimpses back in time of people and places I don't want to forget. I hope an image or two makes you smile too.


Most of the galleries you see here document my family or my travels. They include such "stars" as Peyton, Carson, Collin, Parker and Jonah Cripe, my grandchildren. But you'll also see galleries dedicated to trips I have taken, often as part of photo workshops. These images capture the people and places that inspire me the most.
