Fish-eye Tuba

Not looking for critique, just posting these as a point of interest.

After reviewing captured images of 4th July floats following the village parade I was surprised to find almost perfect reflections of the surrounding scene in the horn of a passing tuba.

Not something I would typically take (or present) but I think they hold...

I love the way the two shapes interact!….

A colleague recently commented that my architectural work and my portraiture seem to be at such odds.
That made me sit back and really think about that.
In the end I've come to believe that the two are very much similar.
My location portraiture work is all about exploring and trying to articulate visually a core truth of the...

Minimal Maple for critique

An older image I've just updated. I'd love to hear thoughts on this - I personally like the simplicity and graphical nature but I can understand how others may view differently.

All viewpoints and comments welcomed - what do you like/not like, what improvements could be made (if worthwhile).

Most of all, I'd like to understand the...

ROUND and UP

How such frames can be more interesting?

Light house at Puduchery, India. Swivelled steps takes to the top for a good view of city and the sea.

About as Minimal as I Get

We went to see the Reading Phillies (AAA baseball) last night. This is the sidewalk by the handicapped parking, which I was really glad to be able to use but sorry I had to do so.

(Some) Colors of Berlin #1

This image shows a very minor part of the 'Bundeskanzleramt' in Berlin.

The original photo was taken last year and heavily edited almost half a year later. I used a more graphical approach by pushing colors a bit the a unnatural feel, but also tried to kept the overall balance and didn't pushed them to hard. I also simplified the shapes...

Heaven shines down

this is my first attempt so I would be glad if you could give me some tips.

Land of the Giants

Greetings internet.

Over the last few months I've been focusing more on abstract city photography. I'm planning on writing a longer post about that in the future, but in the meantime, I thought I would share one of my favorites of the year. I've been keeping my eyes open for more opportunities like this, and the results have been pretty...

Orchidelirium 2018

I don't think I've posted abstracts yet.
Post inspired by Ruth's ink arts and Sandra's macro forests.

This was shot early 2018 (part of a series) for an interior designer to incorporate into a home make over. The home owner loved Orchids. At the time, I had grown tired of looking at these, so I decided to re-visit with a fresh eye...

Rust Never Sleeps

This afternoon I finally yielded to my wife's suggestion that I at least inspect what is shown here and see if there was any salvaging the assembly or should we replace it? Yes, it can be salvaged, although much of what you see needs to removed (did that) and be replaced (parts ordered.) Do you want to guess what it is? Most everyone I know has...

How about a little Up Lift?

I'm always tinkering with this process and it's been raining for days and days and days and....

So, the most recent tweak produced this cool volcanoes of ink strands where the colors didn't mix. How fun!

Feedback welcome.
