Capturing the interaction of the light on the illuminated is for me one of the hallmarks of photography and over the last few days I have been studying this at Furman’s Herring Center and at home.

The other day Alice and I visited a new store in Easley, SC which sells new looms, accessories and yarn. It is a great place. I thought the juxtaposition of the tulips in front of the fiber piece on the wall worked well together.Go visit even if you are not a weaver (yet).

Patterns and Geometrics

We were driving around and I found this  corner of a parking deck with its basic geometric patterns softened by the curves of the railings, The soft, subtle colors of the aging concrete highlighted by the lights adds to the impact of the images.

Morning in the Bergamo Plaza

The other day Alice and wandered around on the Bergamo Plaza in downtown Greenville, SC. The 9:30 AM light was perfect and the plaza was at its best.

Artists’ Tools

This was a great display of tools for artist to use to make art. By themselves the tools, no matter how expensive, do make art, the artist  makes the art, jhut like the camera and software do not make photographic art, the user behind the behind the camera and computer or in the darkroom makes the art.

Through the Windshield

My car windshield during a rain is a perfect filter. I like the unpredictability of the raindrops and dribbles. The background also gets neatly blurred and red taillights really pop out. rainwindhield12152018 (2).jpg

Why ?

AS you probably know, I enjoy looking down occasionally find the debris there has both great details and lager patterns. The color seems to interfere with the overall criss-cross patterns of the image, so I prefer the black and white image.
