16-07-05 Opening Thursday

I am very pleased to say that on Thursday I (along with 20 talented photographers) will be a part of the B&H Event Space Portfolio show opening at Soho Photo Gallery. The opening is from 6p-8p and the show runs until July 23rd.

The image the gallery chose is “After The Harvest.”

If you are in the tristate area come on by whether to the opening or anytime before July 23rd just to see all the great work in the gallery (open Wednesday to Sunday 1pm-6pm).

16-05-13/14 WPC – Face

The challenge this week is Face.  So many ways to go but…as I write this at 11:29pm on Friday the 13th, this double exposure that I took this morning in South Wellfleet fits the bill. If fits, both because there is a face in it (mine) but also because it fits my mood 18 hours later.

Harlan Ellison wrote a Hugo Award winning short story (1968) called “I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream”. That brilliant title (and story, read it if you never have) sums up how I am feeling at this moment.

15-12-21 Lens Culture (Almost Winter Solstice Edition)

So the Winter Solstice is at 11:48PM (EST) tonight.

They are predicting temps as high as 63 Tuesday and 73 on Christmas Eve. I guess we don’t have to move back to LA for the weather after all…

I made several entries to the Lens Culture Exposure awards today and thought I would share one of the series with you…

As always feedback is appreciated.

15-09-13 Weekly Photo Challenge – Monochromatic

It was in 1947 that the idea of a conscious monochrome vision came to me. … …Pure, existential space was regularly winking at me, each time in a more impressive manner, and this sensation of total freedom attracted me so powerfully that I painted some monochrome surfaces just to ‘see’, to ‘see’ with my own eyes what existential sensibility granted me; absolute freedom! But each time I could neither imagine or think of the possibility of considering this as a painting, a picture, until the day when I said: Why not?
