Fuschia and Time.

Closeup photograph of a Fuscia Flower

Fuschia,  June 2017.

With life and work I have have little free time and free time is used to work on my images and photography.  Over the past year I have been working on a series of photographs; call it a project if you want.  This Fuschia photograph is not one of them, and hence the problem.

I of course posted this on my Facebook page, and three Facebook group pages.  At last count this image has garnered over 300 likes and comments in social media!  None of my “project” images comes close to that.  Every year when the mood strikes me I venture out the door and proceed in taking what Doug Lingard, the first photographer who hired me as an assistant as “happy snaps.”  It amuses me for the moment. Every year, when posted on social media, the results are the same; hundreds of likes. read more

Ice Storm March 2016

“While we cannot describe its appearance (the equivalent), we can define its function. When a photograph functions as an Equivalent we can say that at that moment, and for that person the photograph acts as a symbol or plays the role of a metaphor for something that is beyond the subject photographed.”
Minor White
My photographs are usually quite simple in composition, a single subject matter and a clean as possible stark background.  Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of complex designs with the possibility of no single subject, and this late March ice storm and it’s fallen trees gave me the chance to try it out.  I’m pleased with the results and here is the first image from this series.  This image is available as a framed, canvas or art print at Crated.com.  This image is also available printed on metal at Displate.com. As an added incentive for these Fine art prints or framed artworks; email me your particulars along with your order information and I promise to mail you a small certificate of authenticity with the image title along with my signature which can then be attached to the back of the piece.  Stop by, have a look, leave a comment, like it, and buy a print for your home or office decor needs you will not be disappointed.

“When I looked at things for what they are I was fool enough to persist in my folly and found that each photograph was a mirror of my Self.” Minor White
