I had some family-related time in Florida and shot these on the beach near where I grew up. During the day it was all hustle-a-bustle, but at sunset everyone but the Ospreys go home and suddenly it’s the empty beach of my teen years, suffused with memories.
New images from a photo project I’m currently working on. I’m not traveling at the moment and it’s hard not to feel a pang when you look on the internets and see all the lush, panoramic landscape shots that people are taking. There are some amazing artists out there doing beautiful work.
Since I’m currently chained to the editing station, I decided to find a challenge that I could do without wandering too far, and decided to do a macro photography project. I have to be honest, it’s kind of amazing. I expected it to be a stop-gap project, something to fill space until I could get out to the grand vistas again, and I wasn’t sure I could come up with enough subjects to work with.
Instead I feel like I’m seeing a whole other layer of my surroundings, just by looking at things from a texture/color perspective. I’ve photographed everything from Star Wars figurines to a raccoon print in snow to a skeletonized frog I found in a houseplant (have NO idea how that got there)
My notes app is full of ideas so I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of these. I’ll try to stay away from creepy skeleton things and do more like this sea glass…
Display outside a shop in Inglewood, California (just outside of LAX). I went there to get my rental car for my PCH trip and wanted to stay there and had to stop for this.
You can tell I’m a professional photographer because my finger is in the picture. Another person would edit that out but I am okay with my finger shame.
Older image from when I still did figure studies, instead of travel and landscape work. I found this while searching my files for another picture and decided to bring it out, even though it doesn’t quite match the other work here. Shot on film, no less!
More fun with street art this week – details from larger pieces in East Atlanta.
Late entry in the “Street Art Saturday” department…
