CCR Green 2018

I often go for walk at Cherry Creek State Park outside of Denver.  Denver is very dry during the summer months but in between Spring and Summer there is a magical time where the landscape looks like a place that could be from the wetlands of the Northeastern parts of the USA.  It was on...

Grand Canyon 2019 B&W

Having made the transition back to black and white, I went through my photographs I took in January 2019 at the Grand Canyon and converted several of them to black and white.  I find many of the B&W versions are better than the colour ones.  What do you think? Please help me by sharing this... Continue Reading →

A Return to B&W

Weather he knew it or not, I had a connection to Paul Caponigro.  While working and learning from David Travis at Elmi Graphics, we made Cibachrome (color) prints for Paul.  Last year, 30 years later, I sent Paul a letter introducing myself and how I knew him.  He wrote back opening up an opportunity for...

Hindsight is 2020

It is the year 2020.  How appropriate it is to look back over the 44 years since I first bought a 35mm SLR camera and began my photography. Maybe to look at the physical me is a good place to start.  I have assembled the self-portraits I have from those years.  They are not the... Continue Reading →

PAUL CAPONIGRO : SIXTY YEARS "A retrospective exhibition by one of the world's most significant master photographers still working today."   I went to see the retrospective of photographer Paul Caponigro at the Obscura Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  My drive down to the gallery took less time than anticipated.  This turned out to...

Lisbon B&W

Beginning with my trip to Montery, CA in early spring this year, I'm rediscovering B&W.  It's a fascinating process, both chemically or digitally, plus being forced to visualize the basics of an image void of reality's color. It's very refreshing.                              ... Continue Reading →

Our Inner and Outer World

When I captured this photograph I knew the foreground would be B&W.  I wanted to show that we live in a man-made world.  We spend our lives inside.  Inside building.  Inside books and smartphones.  Inside our heads.  Inside cyberspace.  We often get stuck there, not venturing outside.  Perhaps we are all just inside Plato's Cave....

Rocks & Waves

I have another grouping of images that I captured while in Monterey CA, last Spring. 2019.  While there I visited all the galleries in the small town of Carmel by the Sea with a special visit to the Weston Gallery.  I finally saw the real prints of Adams, the Westons, Karsh, Penn and others.  I...

Lisbon Triptic

One day I took my camera and shot from the hip, literally.  I walked holding the camera about waist level.  I pointed it in the general direction and tried to visualize  what the camera was capturing.  It provided for some interesting images.  Here is one, actually three that work well as a triptic.   Imagine...

Lisbon

I recently had the fortune to travel to Lisbon, Portugal.  It’s the capital of the country and like most capitals, very clean and bustling with people.  Walking was the best mode of transportation to see the wonderful streets and architecture.  I captured several interesting images using various photography techniques with both a smartphone and digital...

Brady Hood II

AS I said in My Brady Bunch Hood I find my neighborhood photographically interesting.  Here is another group of images that I took to the extreme.                                 JSH
