Nature and Man

I love this simple photo which (I think) has story with it. The seed pod trapped in the metal grid is such a juxtaposition!

Diamonds in the Rough

We were at Diamond Beach (aka Wildwood Crest or South Wildwood) NJ last week for a few days. These represent two very different approaches in equipment. The first two were shot with a 20 mm wide angle and the second was shot with a 500 mm catadioptric lens. Just for the record, it's very hard to follow focus a seagull with a 500 mm manual focus...

Moonlit night Long Exposure ~Experimental

This is my first attempt at a long exposure shot. I didn't add any layers over the photo. I took a few 30 second shots and chose the best one. I'm considering this experimental because I've never attempted anything such as this before. While I was out, I did decide to go ahead and take a telephoto shot of the moon tonight. I used an ND1000 for...

Wibble wobble moon

A shot of moon and clouds taken backwards with arms up in the air which is why it's a bit wobbly. The bottom strip is thatching on the roof of the restaurant


This picture is titled guess as I want to invoke a conversation on what everyone sees within this photograph. I will make it known what the picture is afterwards. I've attempted to incorporate geometric patterns along with textures. I look forward to hearing where your imagination takes you.

New upload for review - Kodak moment

This is a reflection taken in wet sand of one of those blue sky beach days. I has positioned myself at that spot with the hope of capturing suitable reflections. Luckily this couple walked through and stopped in the perfect position as the wife took a picture of the shoreline

I have pushed this quite bit to enhance the abstract nature of...

ala Stieglitz "Equivalents"

I'm taking the holiday weekend off from posting the "Underfoot" series. This has nothing to do with anything. "Equivalents is was Stieglitz called his cloud pictures. I am not equating my work to his, but I've never understood quite what the big deal was beyond mastering the technical elements. I'm certain all that was much more difficult when...

Simple Hearts

Inspired by Ruth & Joe - I pulled myself away from work in the garden to grab some shots while the light was good and certain flowers are at peak.

Feedback is encouraged. All with at least one eye and opinion are qualified to critique, all I ask is that comments (good OR bad) are sincere, respectful and meant to help.

Minimalist of a beach

I went this morning to the beach for the sunrise and there was well there was no sunrise because of a storm. but I got some nice shots of the sand and the water.

blue and yellow makes ....

blue and yellow apparently! fo-tik asked about using 2 colors in some of my inks and suggested blue and yellow would be nice. So, today was rainy and I love to shoot in the kitchen on rainy days. The funny part is that, no matter how I tried, these two colors did not want to blend!

Here is what i got - a tree and a mushroom I'm calling...

Palouse Hills

The Palouse area of Eastern Washington is made up of rolling wheat fields and big open skies. Evening light and a high vantage point allows photographers to capture these rolling hills in an abstract point of view. It's a very popular photography destination.

Irish Nature

This is my very first abstract. It was a long time ago but I still like it and visit it periodically. hence this morning's post!
