Don’t define your world in black and white, because there is so much hiding among the grays.
Creativity is making marvelous out of the discarded.
Art is anything you can get away with. – Marshall McLuhan I wasn’t planning to post anything tonight. I was about to turn off my computer when I saw this photograph from my previous adventure at the old zoo. I altered (slightly) the look of the cave exterior, and that really IS my friend inside. […]
After working on my last image The View, I got an idea for a new series I want to try. And I’m going to try and stick to my guns this time! I’m going to focus on images that have views or reflections within the photograph, similar to when I set out to do that […]
In every job that must be done there is an element of fun. Mary Poppins
Don’t trade in your authenticity for approval. The photography book that I’ve been browsing through is really inspiring me. I’ve said before that I prefer black and whites, and that was actually the only thing I would hang on the walls of my old place, but I rarely finish and/or post one here. So… I […]
“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” – C.S. Lewis Last night I viewed my previous image via my cellphone, and I felt a little knot in my stomach. It barely resembled the piece that I had looked […]
Sometimes you just have to bite your upper lip and put sunglasses on. Bob Dylan
Life is just one grand sweet song, so start the music. Ronald Reagan Yesterday was an absolutely wonderful day! I took this photograph from the Santa Monica Pier. Sometimes something (or someone) just captures your attention, and this was one of those moments. I saw this musician from the boardwalk and took a long distance shot.
An old General Store, that I took in Leadville, Colorado. It looked old & lonely—sort of how I felt when I lived in that tiny old town— so I added a few effects to give it some company. …and another version in color for those snowy days when you need something extra.
“They can’t hear my drums, but they can see me dance!” -Anonymous So… the drums were never in my head this morning- it actually happened by accident. I’m still experimenting with glass over images (and probably will for a long time), but I wasn’t feeling it this morning. The glass seemed to hide the image […]
“Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” -Winston Churchill
Say it as it is. No need to hide the truth, to deny the painful journey made nor to dwell in the experience. But move on in you life. Share with others. Being open is the only way, honesty being the best policy. Be frank. Be sincere to yourself. Use your hardship to navigate others […]
A Day Near Griffith Park
If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward. Martin Luther King Jr.
Learn to be quiet enough to hear the genuine within yourself so that you can hear it in others. Marian Wright Edelman
These are two more bird shots from today
Here’s a black and white, sketchy pigeon. I’m really surprised how much he looks like a cartoon! I’ve been trying to think of a funny caption for him… but I just can’t put my finger on one. I decided to spend at least an hour per day walking around the city, to take in new scenery and photograph new […]
