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

Color – The Eye of the Beholder

Art Print of a Colorful Plaza in Puebla Mexico

I wouldn’t have guessed this would be the topic of my next post. I have several bits of news and topics waiting off in the wings, but I’m very much a believer in posting updates as they become fully formed in my head and this one, like a daughter of Zeus, sprung to life fully formed in my head earlier today. I’m often amazed how much my opinions on a subject may deviate from other people. It’s very possible a great many of you will read this and shake your … 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

Eiffel Tower Pictures

Eiffel Tower Print - Picture Viewed from the Seine Overlooking Boats

A trip to Paris just wouldn’t be complete without seeing its most famous landmark, the Eiffel Tower.  Built in 1889 as the entrance to the World’s Fair, it was never intended to be there a hundred years later.  In fact, the permit was only for 20 years.  However, by the time those 20 years expired, the tower had become valuable to the city as a communications tower and its landmark status had grown. Until 1930 when the Chrysler Building was completed, the tower was the tallest manmade structure in the … Continue reading

Gargoyles of Notre Dame

Parisian skyline featuring a close-up of one of Notre Dame's famous Gargoyles

One of the more memorable moments of my time in Paris was climbing to the top of Notre Dame de Paris.  It’s the latest in a chain of cathedrals and churches that I’ve ascended, but truly any publicly accessible tower is fair game. Clearly, none of these old cathedrals had any idea that a few hundred years later, people would fancy climbing their bell towers.  The paths to the top have been, without fail, steep and tight.  Notre Dame de Paris did not fail to live up to those expectations. … Continue reading
