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!
