No Two People (Three Photographs)

No two people see the same photograph the same way. Everyone has their perspective. Our objective as photographers is to make a photograph that has impact. But frankly even a widely applauded photograph will not appeal to all and they may be the most vocal. It’s another reason to make photographs for yourself.


Hieroglyphics (Three Photographs)

I have no idea how these came about, or why people carry chalk, or carve in concrete. I’m just grateful they do for my pleasure and my camera. Simple things for a complex world. Meaningful or not just a wonder. Happy Holidays!

 


Street Art (Two Photographs)

These two photographs could only be done in colour. The striking thing about them is the way in which the art stands out in spite of all the injurious things around it. I can only applaud the growth in quality street art, and the artists who work around all kinds of obstacles, while still managing great work. Most of the artwork I see does not last long before it is replaced by another piece of art.


Antique Shop Reflection (Two Photographs)

I have taken photographs of the windows of antique shops ever since I got my first camera. I even had a few published back when in Italy. There are two sides to these photos, the first is thanks to whomever put the display together and the other is what I bring to them. There was a distracting bit of ceiling and I removed it. The top and bottom lighting needed fixing and I used neutral density filters in Lightroom. In the black and white I did not want the statue to get too ethereal. Two different visions from one shot of an impressive assortment of hand-me-downs.


A Mural with Birds (Two Photographs)

This is one of the best murals in town and it’s in a vacant lot on a main street, often used for festivals. I have not captured the entire mural simply because I wanted some of the buildings visible behind it, as well as the pigeons going about their business. There is a connection between new and old here that is somewhat reassuring for those us not as keen on modern glass.
