Winter run off – Oso Creek

It was a sunny morning today, so with mask & hat in tote, I took my camera for a walk down in to Arroyo Trabuco, which is where the Oso Creek runs through, as it meanders down from the Angeles Forest and eventually into the Pacific Ocean. My purpose was to take a different photograph... Continue Reading →

Photo Creativity 101 – the 10-minute rule

Have you ever gone out to take photographs, whether to the beach, park, or just a walk around the block and come back and realize that for all that time you spent, you did not take one single photograph? You might be thinking you have photographers-block, similar to writers-block or artist-block; encountering a blank slate... Continue Reading →

Selfie of a photographic artist

A homage to Molly McCall. While reviewing her Momento Vivere portfolio last year, she had created one image, Dissolved, that has really stayed with me. So while getting my eyes checked out earlier this year just as the pandemic was starting to break, I had to have this eye correction gear on to confirm that... Continue Reading →

Earth Day 2020

When thinking of Earth Day, the poetic photograph above as a metaphor for what Earth Day represents for me always seems to come to mind. This was captured in the spring of 2006 and has all of the elements of hope for an Earth Day narrative: trees budding representing a new life, running water as... Continue Reading →

At that time I had converted 108 images to Black & White, and now I am up to 160 converted photographs. Musically I can sense a number of different riffs on this body of work so I...

TechTransfer

A status report on the progress of my TechTransfer project that I discussed in my last post while considering an extensive body of photographic work I had created earlier in China. First, I am becoming more comfortable with the working title TechTransfer, which still might morph to one of my earlier names that I was... Continue Reading →

COVID-19 Masked-man

This self-portrait is pretty much how I will look when I go out now during these COVID-19 pandemic days here in America. The mask is a cloth, non-medical material, which was made at home, meant to ensure if I were positive to protect others as well as some protection for myself when I have to... Continue Reading →

March 18 – 2020 – Post #3

For a group of local photographers during these COVID-19 days as a slight diversion, we are posting five photographs during the week for others to provide comments on. We have setup a private Facebook group to facilitate this which anybody can easy emulate. FYI, why "private" is only to keep the discussion within the small... Continue Reading →

Pampas Grass – Take Two

Yesterday, I posted my lament about living in Southern California with the constant sunny days and corresponding blue skies. A very warm and cheerful place to reside, but potentially problematic if one wants to create dark and stormy photographs. Just no clouds to add to any potential drama! Oh, darn. Gerry Clausing, a good friend... Continue Reading →
