Matilija Poppies and Mallows

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 01:32:20 +0000

You got to love the Matilija Poppy, a California native, with its wonderful huge yellow center and puffy white petals. The poppies are of the Romneya genus (so are neither Papaver nor Eschscholzia), and grow on bushes from mid-California south into Mexico. In this image, I combined a central Matilija Poppy with some humble mallows, arranged […]

Secret Garden

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 15:31:32 +0000

I composed this image to emphasize the arch within an arch effect. In post-production, I carried through on the same visual idea by adding an outer frame with slightly rounded corners.

Special Snowflake

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 20:34:34 +0000

No, this is not really a snowflake at all. It’s a macro photo of the seed pod of a Gaillardia (“blanket flower”) [below] and the all 3-channels LAB inversion of the seed pod [above]. But I find myself intrigued that the term “special snowflake” has become one of political opprobrium, particularly when addressed from the radical […]

Ladybird Poppy

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 17:55:18 +0000

Yesterday was a cool Father’s Day. I woke to freshly brewed coffee and cards from the kids. Then I went with Phyllis, my own wonder woman, to see the new Wonder Woman movie in 3-D. When we got home, this Ladybird Poppy from our garden had a new blossom, and I photographed it while listening […]

This Father Gives Thanks

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 18:08:41 +0000

On this Father’s Day, I want to give thanks for the miracle that is Katie Rose, and for all my kids. Thanks for my family. And thanks to all fathers who are there for their kids!

Through a Window with Selective Focus

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 20:47:50 +0000

With this rainy day abstraction, I focused carefully on a window wet with the incoming rain, and not on the colorful town beyond. I used a moderate telephoto setting (112mm) and a fairly wide aperture (f/5.6) to further visually separate the window from the scenery behind. I was standing close to the window, and focusing […]

Photographed with my iPhone camera, and processed in DistressedFX, Mextures, ImageBlender, and Snapseed.

Son Doong Cave

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 18:14:18 +0000

The interior landscape of Son Doong Cave is ethereal and fantastic. Keep in mind that this mystical landscape is cloaked in darkness. The camera sees far more than the naked eye.    

Darkness into Light

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 16:50:25 +0000

This spring I visited and spent a number of days and nights in the world’s largest cave, in the jungle mountains of central Vietnam. Fewer people have been to the cave than have been into space. This was a journey of 6,000 miles to the other side of the world, and an arduous trek through […]
