Tomatillo

A bit of food still life, to prove this blog is still alive.

Honestly, the reason for a lack of updates is that I have been very busy updating my catalog of prints that are available. Giving some much needed love to this aspect of my photography is long overdue.

Photography is at most times a solitary, self-interested  activity; the time spent in contemplation of subject and technical considerations, the processing of taking a negative or digital file and making of it something that expresses the active urge that made the photographer press the shutter.

However, photography expresses, at it’s best, sentiments we all have, distills human experience into an artifact. To me that is an amazing thing, an important thing. To me that is the reason that every photographer who takes the craft seriously should be sharing, making their work available to others and taking in work by others. Of course, as with all points of view your mileage may vary.

Leaf Study…an ongoing series

Another image from the Leaf Study series. I’m not yet offering prints from this series as it is a body of work that is far from completion. I currently have no idea when it will be finished or just how much scope the project will have.

Eventually I’ll reach a point where I will feel the body of work is strong enough to begin offering pieces.
