Mac Mini M1 transition in progress

#7996 (Mysterious Trip) copyright Douglas Stockdale I am taking a small break from publishing articles here, as well as not adding much content to Facebook, IG, etc for a somewhat simple reason; my iMac crashed for a second time and I am now in transition to a new Mac Mini M1 computer system. Which was... Continue Reading →

Diary; July 14th, 2020

Yesterday, July 14th, I took another long hike down into Arroyo Trabuco to work on my pandemic project, or should I say, the series of artworks that coincided with the start of the COVID-19. This urban landscape photograph was made at the start of my journey and part of my ten-minute rule to become creatively... Continue Reading →

March 20 – 2020 Photo #5

So back to a black & white photograph for this urban landscape, #5 in a short "COVID-19 what to do with myself so I don't have huge anxiety" series. Or something like that.

I think that this one is a sycamore that seems to be slowly falling down and showing its age. Even while preparing to photograph this subject, I was... Continue Reading →

I will have to say that the COVID-19 concerns is taking an emotional toll and one solution to my anxiety is to take a long walk in the adjacent canyon. Since I was one of the few people walking (or bike riding) in the canyon, I was doing my part for social distancing. Minimal social... Continue Reading →

Altered Landscape photographs

I have been writing a series of articles about landscape photography, which I think is equally applicable to nature or urban landscape locations. Most recently¬†after I had been surprised by some photographic results, but then with that new knowledge, to then be able to pre-visualize and photograph similar locations and situations with intention. Someone asked... Continue Reading →
