Jeff, formerly the Cracked Planet of Jeff Lindsay of Appleton, Wisconsin.

Photography and the related visual arts have added much to my appreciation of the beauty of life. Can beauty be found in almost any setting? Sometimes it seems that way. I still have much to learn, but that doesn't keep me from sharing a few of the things I've discovered so far. Recent gallery: Photos from Xiamen, China, April 2013. Bonus: Also see my collection of tips for those coming to China on the page Surviving in China.

More Galleries

Appleton, WI and the Fox Valley of Wisconsin

I have quite a few pages of photographs from the Appleton area. These include:

Other recently added photo pages include A Tribute to Dallas Anderson and His Sculptures in the Fox Valley. Dallas Anderson, a native of Utah, has three important works in the Fox Valley: Rain Dance in Appleton, Playing in the Rain in Neenah, and the less known but beautiful Reflections of Love in Memorial Park of Appleton. I have sample shots of all three in this tribute to Dallas.

Another recent galley is Winter Woods, Waters, and Windows: 2009 Winter Photos from the Midwest.

New: Friends and Strangers III: Barcelona, Spain, March 2008.

Also see Friends and Strangers 4, with photos of people mostly from 2008, and Even More Friends and Strangers.
