Capparis Spinosa

These images were made while I was deployed to Iraq in 2006 to 2007.  I was intrigued by the thorns, the foliage and the delicate white flowers. I determined the best time to get the flowers was early in the morning before the influx of personnel and vehicles. Once I was through with missions for the day I would go and make some images of the flowers as time permitted. These images are from those forays into the early morning or late afternoon. The flowers would bloom and then die by the end of the day. These plants seemed to exemplify the contrast that was the Iraq I experienced – delicate beauty in the midst of great heat, the fragile white blossoms in the midst of long sharp thorns, beauty in a dangerous world.

Weston Beach

Weston Beach is a small section of the Point Lobos State Reserve, just south of Carmel California. Point Lobos was made famous by Edward Weston, who made many of his iconic and lasting images of the coastal area. While both inspiring and a bit overwhelming it has been a challenge to make images of any lasting personal value in this ever changing place where land and sea meet. There is always something new and exciting when “edges” overlap. This Folio represents a small section on Weston Beach that intrigued and captured my imagination and camera. The images were not of the larger tide pools or rock formations, but of the small pebbles, stones shaped like sand dunes, boulders worn smooth and glistening from the action of waves moving up and over the exposed surfaces.

Graffito Folio 1

The term “graffito” is the singular form of the Italian “graffiti” and means “little scratch”. Graffiti itself is writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface, often in a public place. Graffiti has existed since ancient Egypt, Greece and Roman times. During my drives to and from work I would pass rail cars sitting on the rail road track on the border of Addison and Farmers Branch, Texas. These cars would be parked on the tracks for various lengths of time.  I was drawn to the images I saw left behind by the initial artists. Some were very colorful and others were monochromatic in nature, ranging from the very complex to simple line drawings. The images range from wonderful color prints to some very intricate black & white designs. These prints are a departure from the usual subject matter I have traditionally photographed. It was a fun and challenging project and allowed for great interpretation of the original “tags” I encountered. I hope you will enjoy them as well.

Wild Cat Hill Nudes #1

Over the years I have had the opportunity to attend various workshops on the Nude and to photograph various models. It has been rewarding from the standpoint of working with another artist who is just as committed to making art. The images presented here are from a workshop I attended at Wild Cat Hill hosted by Kim Weston in 2010.

During that intense 2 day experience the photographer has the opportunity to try and connect in a meaningful way with the model. Both the photographer and model bring a unique energy and experience to the session.

As to the reason for photographing the nude I have admired the work of Edward Weston and others over the years, to include Kim Weston. Each of us has a unique perspective and idea of what we desire to stress in the image – shape, form, light, softness, color, etc. The human form has been the subject of artists for as long as there has been tools to create art.

DeRidder Antiques

In the town of Forney Texas,  there are several antique stores along Highway 80 and the most notable of these is DeRidder Antiques. Hard to miss with a school bus and an old jet sitting in the front of the store!

When I walked into the store I was overwhelmed with more visual stimulus than I could imagine! Here was a place that held items I had not seen for years not to mention many I had never seen before. And this was in the store that was on the frontage road. Once you exited the store out the rear you were immediately confronted with a couple of near life size dinosaurs and another, larger store! This folio contains images from my visits to this wonderful time machine.
