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 →

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

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...

The Art of Photography

Below are two photographs.  One is the original image as it was captured.  The second one is the image I saw in my mind's eye.  I arrived in Monterey after driving 18 hours non-stop from Denver and was exploring the area when I came across this palm plant.  I'm not sure you would call it...

Monterey Structures

I had a blast in Monterey!  I am so pleased with the variety of photographs, from contemporary color, to classic B&W, to abstract photography.  After I visited the Weston Gallery in Carmel-by-the-Sea I recall my early days of photographing with B&W film.  The internet, not to mention computers were not around.  I studied the books...

Summer Camp Waterfront

I attended this camp in the early 1970s.  I recently had the pleasure of sharing the camp experience with my son.  He/We had a blast! Normally at home I wake up early (4:00AM) each day and while at camp it was no different.  I captured these images while the camp was still asleep. The camp's... Continue Reading →

Clouds 2001

In 2001 I had a daily commute of 50 minutes to go 50 miles.  Not bad when you compare it to others who commute 50 minutes to go half that distance.   On my way home during the winters I saw some great sunsets and clouds that were lit-up by the setting sun.  I took these... Continue Reading →

Organic – Revised 2019

When I left Hollywood and Elmi Graphics in 1988 I landed in Kent, Ohio.  I was making soft images at the time using various techniques.  One of those techniques was pin-hole photography, which I call Organic.  I called it Organic because there was nothing artificial, man-made, between the scene and the film. Get it!?  It... Continue Reading →

Retrospective I

As I look back over my 40+ years of taking photographs, I have many different styles.  From studying other photographers, I noticed many have one style or a style that progresses over time.  Maybe my body of work reflects the countless of times I have come back to photography only to find I could not...

Grand Canyon – Rock Walls

These are many of the photographs I took of the rock walls along Bright Angels Creek.  Most of the photographs were taken close to the wall and a few were taken from across the creek.  So much of the rock has silica which makes the image look grainy.  I was fascinated with the variety of...

Keep Practicing

I find that when I keep practicing, keep taking photographs, I get better.  So what if the subject or composition are not unique.  It's a matter of did you execute the photograph well.  Is the subject interesting and well composed.  Photography to me is fun!  If I'm not exploring where I am by taking photographs,...

Trunks 2018

Never underestimate the potential of a dreary day. Remember my post “Montana Road Trip II (part 3)“?  I had driven back to Glacier National Park in hopes of catching some autumn color but I was met with a the most dreary day.  It had me very depressed that I would not find anything worth photographing. ...
