Still Lifes & Abstracts

Flowers

  • Black Eyed Susans

    Hollis, New Hampshire, 2019 - I was driving around and noticed a patch of these Black Eyed Susans. I could tell that if I got the light right, in this case backlit, they'd prove to be really photographic. Using the great TPE iPhone app, I was able to figure out the best time to come back and shoot. Shooting on my Hasselblad X1D, I was able to shoot pretty wide, and then have the resolution to crop in and get this composition that fitted my liking.

  • Passion Fruit

    Deep Macro, 2012

  • Hibiscus

Facades & Interiors

  • Layered Window

    Segovia, Spain, 2018 On my way from Madrid to Bilbao, Spain, I stopped in Segovia- about 1.5 hours north of Madrid. There, I found a number of wonderful old structural abstracts. This window shows decades of re-working and repairs around it- providing wonderful layers and colors. The details are amazing- this print wants to be big!

  • Almost Timeless

    Tapas Bar Butchery in Seville, Spain, 2018 Hasselblad X1D, 51mp, 45mm ISO 3200 : 1/125 at f4.5

  • Galvanized And Ladder

    Eastern Maryland, 2019 - I found this detail while walking around an old brewery. I was drawn to the colors, along with the three primary materials- wood, steel and galvanized metal. I'm a sucker for strong elements on the left side of the frame (Rob S will roll his eyes here). So I really like the natural material over on the left, which I feel anchors the rest of the materials the right.

  • Clotheslines in Fog

    Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire, 2019 - Symmetrical clotheslines against a fogged in Atlantic hold two colorful towels. I chose to distress this image further, giving it an old and yet new at the same time sort of feeling. The polyester towels certainly give away the era (not the 1700s!).

Details

  • Windmill In Sepia

    Central Arizona, 2019 - While shooting some really sweet trucks, I looked up to notice this old beat up windmill. I have no idea what happens when it spins, with some of it's blades all messed up. What the heck caused that? I opted to treat this image with sepia and steel blue darks- the result is dreamy yesteryear type of result.

  • Hanging Shoes

    Hanging shoes in the Mojave Desert. California 2006.

  • Alone

    Northern Arizona, 2019 - A single pebble is separated from its peers by textured sandstone.
