From the archives:

Some award-winning covers, and some silly - in such a wonderful way when I was primarily an editorial lifestyle photographer for MKE of The Journal Sentinel.  Fun years!  So creative!  At times I really miss them!  6 shoots a day at times, studio, location, so much, prolific for sure!  Photography by Christine Taylor.  Copyrights The Journal Sentinel.

Many, many thanks to the crew on ALL of these.  Really fun times guys!

Sea Flow at Magic Hour

The sea awoke at midnight from its sleep

Rush onward with uninterrupted sweep

Or roar of winds upon a wooded steep

Of things beyond our reason and control.

-  On location at The Painted Hills; tonight.  The ash deposits you are seeing in this photograph are about 39 million years old.  Its like Mars, and its quiet, and rich, and humbling and it means something without meaning to.  Best of all… no one is near.  Solitude.
