Lost Morning On The Chattahoochee River

Lazy Morning On The Chattahoochee River

My years dealing with rolls of film were long past by the time the camera bug truly bit me, but it’s still a part of my youth. And misplacing film was practically a way of life for me. Heck, my baby pictures were on a roll of film lost for years thanks to an absent minded uncle! So, I think that shows that lost film and my life are genuinely hand in hand. That’s been the one lost pleasures of digital photography. Sure, flash cards might go bad or hard … Continue reading

Abstract Photography – What’s in A Name?

Abstract Photography - An Elevator captured in motion and repeating lines

Perhaps abstract photography is too abstract to get much notice online? It’s been a slow but beneficial journey for me, learning how important the words that accompany art are online. Our search engines are smart, but they don’t yet know with any precision what’s in a picture or whether it’s the one you’re looking for just based on your search request. Maybe you’d like to help me describing a piece of abstract photography? Background Over the course of  many months, I started working to improve the descriptions that accompany my … Continue reading

Family Photo Restored

Photo Restoration Project - Early 1950's Kindergarten - Andalusia Alabama

Just thought I’d share a little personal project on which I recently worked. My late grandmother was one of the world’s original pack-rats, and the good side of this was ending up with a pile of old family photos and correspondence. Sadly when you tack decades onto the average photo, the results are not great, and some are more well-worn than others. Still, it’s quite neat no matter how weathered to see images that stretch back to your great, great, great, great grandmother! And I had to count to be … Continue reading

Best Foot Forward

Photo of colorful houses on the seaside in the warm sunlight in Galway Ireland

There are days when I feel I have taken on never-ending projects! As long-term readers will know, I’ve been working on an update to my print collections – a rather involved one. I kept thinking soon I’ll finish and get to tell you all it’s done! And the best I can do now is say that it’s more or less complete, but that I also recognize that I’m rarely 100% satisfied with anything, so it can at best be considered somewhat complete. Minimally at least, I have re-written the descriptions … Continue reading

Taste of Paris – New Prints Offered

The Eiffel Tower in soft winter light - textured

I’ve been making major headway with re-working my online gallery, and the latest to join the completed stack are the prints on offer from Paris! I’ve said over and over again that Paris is easily the most photogenic place I’ve been. There are cities that I dearly love that were not as shockingly beautiful. And it’s made the task of selecting what to include in my gallery even harder. In fact, I’m almost certain I’ll be rotating work in and out of this gallery in the future. This is probably … Continue reading

Dream Tree and Sunset on Nicaragua

Graceful Trees flowing into the blue waters of Lake Nicargua - Textured Photo Art

Still going full-steam ahead on my print collection revamp, but happy to say that I can very nearly see the end in sight! It’s been a long time coming, but it’s been very worthwhile. What originally started as just re-writing the descriptions of each image eventually became revisiting a host of photos from the past, which lead naturally to some new work being added. I’m not sure if I’m alone in this regard, but typically when I take photos locally I tend to edit the bulk of them shortly afterwards. … Continue reading
