There is something strange about geckos. This is my oldest son’s new pet. We’ve gone without pets for some time. Harder to see in this smaller size but I liked the shadows here. Hopefully I say this in a way that is different from the way people convince themselves they taste nuances in wine. I simply like the shadows. I would not pay extra money for them and would be happy if they came from light I bought at a gas station. There were a long series of these ads in large and small sizes. They felt a bit like folk art. It was pretty much the middle of nowhere yet the need for wigs must have been great. It is hard to take pictures of dunes that don’t feel boringly repetitive. I’m not sure I succeeded here but I though the way the light hit the single dune like a spot light was worth capturing. I try to take pictures of this building often- usually from the highway. It’s a pretty cool building and this was taken at the end of a 12 hour car ride. The light at that time of night mixed with the street light and rain created an interesting effect. It was freezing cold when I took this shot. It was on the south end […]
308 photos over 4 weeks of work (or slightly over 40 trips to/from my car). Some of the photos I’ve already used on web pages, some will end up in presentations, many I took just because I liked them and they’ll never “do” anything. A few that I liked from this week are below. Nothing mind blowing or earth shattering but something I look forward to doing each day I come to work.
It’s been a long time, almost exactly a year, since I did any stranger portraits. It remains a difficult thing for me to do which is a large part of why I do it. Additionally, driving into work this morning I saw the scene below. The park is a place where many homeless people seem to gather/sleep/live. I went back to check on the man but by the time I was able to park and walk back police and ambulance personnel were on the scene. It’s the kind of thing that makes me wonder about my own perceptions of my environment. If it weren’t for the bike would I have gone back to check? It seemed to add an element of action interrupted rather than someone passing out or sleeping in the open. Lots of questions about internal and external elements.
