Tallahassee Magazine - "The Moynahan Edition"

October 01, 2018  •  31 Comments

In mid-September, I got an email from the Director of Editorial Services (and author of article referenced here), Steve Bornhoft, saying, "The Moynahan Edition of the Tallahassee Magazine has arrived..."  Earlier in the summer he'd interviewed me for this article to feature my nature photography.  Ultimately, it turned into a beautifully written cover story and 12 pages spotlighting my work. 

Thanks Steve.  And thanks to the many who've already seen the magazine and sent words of support, encouragement, and congratulations. (A copy is readily available from Roland Publishing on Miccosukee Road or at Books A Million in Tallahassee for $3.95.)

This collection is assembled from five of my "top drawer" portfolios: Flora, Florida Landscape, Reptiles & Amphibians, Hand of Man, and Invertebrates.  All the photos are from Florida.  You will likely recognize some of these images from previous posts.  Mr. Bornhoft started off the article with a spread from my FLORA portfolio.

In case you're in the mood for more, there are plenty of cool shots in other portfolios at my website -- davidmoynahan.com -- such as Birds, Mammals, and Underwater (found in the Wildlife Galleries); or Animal, Vegetable, & Mineral (compositions from nature found in my Details Galleries); and mostly abstract compositions from nature in Photo Art.  Please take a look sometime when you need a re-balancing visit to the great outdoors.  

Thanks for your return visits to my blog posts, your encouragement and support of my work, and your caring and actions toward the stewardship of natural Mother Earth.  Please leave a comment, however brief, below.  And share this link wildly and widely.

David, some of us get so accustomed to your brilliant photos that we just come to see them as part of the (beautiful) flow that comes to us from the universe without any effort on our part. I'm glad the readers of this magazine also are getting a chance to see them. They may realize (as some of the rest of us have long known) that the work you do with your camera is truly wonderous!

You are awesome. I admire your photographs. I've dabbled in photography since a kid, but never got serious with it. My mom would encourage me to get into it more, but never did. Sadly she passed on July 31st this year. Miss her badly. And then hurricane Michael devastated my little hometown of Chattahoochee !!
May I request an autographed edition of the magazine your photos are in? Dont get to Tallahassee much anymore since mom left us. It would be greatly appreciated !!
Thank you,David.
Love those tads! Toxic too! I just wish the editors of those magazines that use the beauty of Florida to sell real estate would gobble a few.
