I intend this page to be a venue in which I can post some of the pictures I have taken that speak to me in some way.  I will try to offer some editorial comment about what I found appealing about the picture.

In March of 2015, we went to Sedona Az. The scenery is breathtaking!

I don’t know why these appealed to me…

Rain on Japanese Maple

I just love a dynamic sky!

IMG_6466

…and unexpected flashes of color…

…and did I mention I love dynamic sky?

Amber Waves

Patterns in nature have a certain appeal as well.

Somber Skies

Maybe I mentioned dynamic skies?

Who? Me?

I love botanical macro photos.  There is often a surprise…

Vinca

A flash of color…

Iris Waits

an unexpected twist…

Lone Azalea Blossom

a haunting image…

Batik Beauty

or an emotional pull.

Sometimes I take pictures and push them out of the photographic world and into someplace else.

Other times, they speak on their own.

This was a challenge piece.  The challenge was to do something wrong on purpose.  I set out to make a horrible photograph and ended up making something almost impressionistic.

Then, I went for surreal…

Azalea Garden Plein Aire

Then I tried to capture the spirit of En Plein Air painting.

Blue Bell

There is just something about this old bell that stirs feelings.

This digital mosaic arose from a challenge to make a single image form at least 4 previous works in at least 4 different media.

A bouquet for mother

Just some rose buds.

What more needs to be said.

IMG_2434_2 I love the sunsets here at my In-Law’s House.  The energy of the sky and the water is astounding.

The Pampas Grass against the dynamic sky is something I never tire or photographing.  Today I remembered about fill flash!

IMG_2450

I really need a wide angle lens that corrects for image warping.

IMG_2444 Cloud photography is fun.

Especially in low light!

 

One week I spent a long time waiting around in doctor’s offices. The boredom reached the point that I had to play with the limited photo editing capacity of my iPhone. Luckily, I still had some interesting photos to play with…

Sometimes you capture the moment

img_8155

Often the effect is impressive

img_8623

Other times it’s frightening!

Recently I’ve been playing with photo image enhancement

img_9181

Often with unexpected results

And Sometimes things don’t quite work out.

And, of course, some images just speak for themselves.
