Anxiety – Confronting COVID-19

This is my third self-affirming mini-posters for this COVID-19 pandemic, Anxiety, Confronting COVID-19, having published Wonder and Awareness, Restoration in Progress at the end of last month. Allows me to personally vent about my morning anxiety, take advantage of some previous expired 120 film photographs and provides something else to work on during the day.... Continue Reading →

Wonder

This is my second in a series of self-affirming posters that I have developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Similar to my first word+photo diptych Awareness, this photograph was created using expired 120 film, and was made during the development of my Gardening For Ordnance project in 2018. I am spending probably a little much... Continue Reading →

March 19 – 2020 Photo #4

So our COVID-19 saga continues, thus my working title for this photograph is Turbulent Times, and the fourth in this daily series, with #3 here (Photo #3). I foresaw the potential for this photograph in both color as well as black & white, mostly due to the monotone colors of the foreground weeds. You can... 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 →

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 →

Working from home due to COVID-19

Yes, with the COVID-19 I am working from "home". Just as I have for the past twenty-five years. Probably more common for many artists and those working for virtual companies (and I am doing both). Fortunately, my studio is also in my home up on the second floor with a nice view out the back.... Continue Reading →

Meditative walk in the canyon

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 →

Organic Abstraction Expressionism

Over the past week, I published two articles, experimental/play and covid-19 impact,  in conjunction with using a new series of photographs that I have been creating. I am trying to get my head around this new series of experimental photographs that appear like an organic versions of the Abstract Expressionist movement form the 1950's and... Continue Reading →
