Out of this world

I think cactus are amazingly weird and beautiful in their own sharp prickly way, so I tried to take them out of this world and into another strange world not seen before.

Obsession with Water

I've always had an obsession with spending time near water, and have recently been trying to portray the feelings I have during long stints sitting by lakes, oceans, and rivers. I've been drawn to shooting landscapes with water since I started photography, but I've become more and more interested in the minimal atmosphere exampled in these...

From the Top

When I do my inks (on my profile) the views of those are from the side. If you could look straight down at the surface, this is what you'd see!

There is some grain issue here that I am going to run through a de-noise program as soon as I get it.

Blue Shutter

This is a capture from an abandoned home I shot yesterday.I love the character in the old wood and peeling paint.

Sincere feedback and suggestions for possible enhancement welcomed.

Minimal Lanscape

It was raining on Saturday morning. A brief window opened up early in the morning so I ran down to the the beach hoping to catch just this - rain in the distance with some open sky. The dark version is closer to what it really looked like but i wanted to be able to see the boat so I lightened it up.

Underfoot #3 #4

These are the third and fourth in the Underfoot series. As mentioned yesterday, twenty of these will be exhibited at Lauralynn White's Contemporary Art Gallery in Chautauqua, New York from mid-June through Labor Day 2019. Some of these are more abstract than some others. I'll be there in late July for a "Meet the Artist" event.


Underfoot, #1 #2

These are the first two of twenty images made during a six month period when I was starting to recover from my second stroke and beginning my transition from film to digital imaging, from mostly black and white to exclusively color. I am exhibiting this selection at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Chautauqua, New York starting in mid-June...

Minimalism or sort of macro?

Evening everyone. I would like to share my vision of minimalism and abstract in photography.

First photo is the gratitude of room service staff. Sometimes they can be quite creative :)

Bleeding Hearts

One of my favorite flowers. And, as someone posted recently in one of the other groups, sometimes you don't have to go farther than the yard.

Carrying the Weight of the World

I drove by a pile of old pallets on the side of the road and really liked the way the light hit them. I am always curious about things. In this photo I am curious what has been carried on these pallets. Were did they come from. Where did the items carried go.

Pop a Top

This is a butcher block that has been in my wife's family since the late 1800s. I am working on different angles to capture the texture of the marks on the surface, but really like the simplicity of this shop. How many bottles has this opened?

Dark Silhoutte

This orange flower is so bright and saturated, it is almost too much. For this image I was hoping for an almost abstract feeling. The layers of petals form an interesting set of lines. .
