Mundane and Simple (Two Photographs)

Found along one of my walks. I like the plain and simple look of these as well as the perspective. I recall a series like this was bought and placed in a corporate boardroom. The CEO who bought them was quoted as saying something like “they should remind us of the city we live in”.


Wood Ducks (Two Photographs)

In my view, somethings look better in black and white, even when colour is a fundamental element of their make-up. This is a case in point, the colour version is not as dramatic as the black and white.


Surreal Windows (Three Photographs)

These photos should speak for themselves. I just wanted to say that the one with the ladder does have a colour-cast, sometimes they actually enhance the photograph. Once in a while working on photos that are somewhat abstract is refreshing.


Wall Art (Two Photographs)

If someone created this it would be called art but it’s probably all natural. So much the better, weather generated art. Infrastructure aging not gracefully perhaps but certainly in an interesting way. Just for the record I will give it dignity and call it wall art.


Great Blue Heron (Two Photographs)

The same bird cropped differently and in colour and black and white. Working like this lets you see the options you have for a final piece of work; the Portrait format in colour for a magazine or book, and the black and white more for framing on a wall.


A Common Thing (Two Photographs)

This is one of the times when I try to take the ordinary, the mundane, a common thing and make it into a photograph worth looking at. An exercise worth trying anytime, anywhere. Just find the things that catch your eye.


Mailboxes (Three Photographs)

It seems my catalogue has a significant number of photographs of mailboxes. I am not sure why I take so many but very often the boxes have some unique style or special lighting. As I weed through them I will post more.
