Lonely Road

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:22:21 +0000

I had hoped to leave the haze and smoke of the Bay area behind, but coming across Yosemite and then down the eastern slope of the High Sierra we descended into a miasma. As the light and visibility faded, I stopped beside a lonely road to photograph the line of telephone poles fading into the […]

It Starts with a Petal and Ends with a Twist of Fate

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 20:15:16 +0000

It started with two wonderful bunches of alstromerias (“Peruvian Lilies”), one purple and one yellow. On the alstromeria flower, the blossoms have exterior petals that are mostly solid colors (e.g., somewhat translucent, but without markings). In addition, there are usually three interior petals on each blossom that are mostly “tiger striped”—and great for transparency on […]

Chorus of One

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 20:26:25 +0000

I worked with model Jin N Tonic to create a number of images in my Multiple Exposures series. In Chorus of One, I think Jin did a great job of positioning and placement (as well as having enthusiasm, and looking a bit like Marilyn). Jin’s ability to precisely place her body helped to create a sense […]

A Tale of Two Flowers

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 21:15:29 +0000

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Some flowers were naughty and some were nice. The question was, would the naughty flowers find their inner goodness and be willing to wilt to save the innocent blossom? Would the madness of the revolting peasants—truly deplorable this time—prevail, or would society pull […]

Dandelion Center for Triptych

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 18:07:35 +0000

I prepared this black and white split version of a dandelion core for a triptych, with the split black/white version flanked by an LAB inversion of the image on the left and a “straight” version on white on the right. I think the image works well on its own, but you can also see a […]

San Francisco Sunset from Port Oakland

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 22:04:30 +0000

Yesterday I hosted a Meetup primarily to provide a forum for Rafael of PhotoPills to explain the PhotoPills planning software to interested photographers, and also for the fun of hanging out with fellow photographers. There were old friends and new friends, but first we almost ended before we began, as the original location at Middleshore […]
