Instant Nomad in Corona

Untitled (In n Out, Corona, CA December 2013) copyright 2014 Douglas Stockdale Oh where to begin? Firstly, this is another photograph that may or may not be in my Instant Nomad photobook but IS included in the project, if that makes sense. I have a ton of images I will consider as I edit, but...

La Huette Switzerland

Untitled (La Huette, Switzerland, March 2005) copyright 2014 Douglas Stockdale Serendipitously after reading the recent release of Brassaii, Paris Nocturne, I went looking for some of my night-time photographs of  Fiuggi that I had made in 2010 & 2011.  Then I stumbled on an unfamiliar file folder of Europe from 2005. Yep, I am sometimes... Continue Reading →

Schipol, Netherlands

Untitled (Schipol, Netherlands #6653) copyright 2013 Douglas Stockdale This is the stuff that drives me crazy. While developing a project, much like a cat who is stalking a mouse, I am easily distracted by a interesting ball of yarn. I have developed another almost complete set of photographs that I find interesting and that have... Continue Reading →

Fiumicino, Italy

Untitled (Fiumicino, Italy #7224) copyright 2013 Douglas Stockdale More tweaking of the photographs for this project; contrast adjustments, cropping modifications and moving some photographs to the back-up folder.

Heathrow, England

Untitled (Heathrow, England #1009) copyright 2013 Douglas Stockdale What initially attracted to me was the dramatic "Ansel Adams" lighting of the terminal that was in the state of construction and this front lighting seems to add a touch of mystery. Finding an advantage point that included some of the technological infrastructure in the foreground took... Continue Reading →

Maui, HI

Untitled (Maui, HI #8964) copyright 2013 Douglas Stockdale Technology is mysterious as we think we know what functions that it's performing, but we never can be sure. Cheers

Jamaica, NY

Untitled (Jamacia, NY #7211) copyright 2013 Douglas Stockdale Even as an engineer I find that my technological subjects for this project are mostly ambiguous as to the underlying function and purpose. In some cases there are hints as to the technological intent but other wise I find these objects to be both beautiful as well... Continue Reading →

Atlanta, GA

Untitled (Atlanta, GA #5532) copyright 2013 Douglas Stockdale One of the fascinating aspects to me of Industrial objects, where form will follow function, the resulting form will usually has a sophisticated elegance to it. Engineering design is concerned about utility, efficiency, ergonomics, functionality, usability, maintenance, user-interfaces and work flows, thus one of the traits of... Continue Reading →
