The Right Mistake

When I was in college our Band Director, Hunter Wiley,  euphonium player for the New York Philharmonic, would comment on a wrong note which actually would sound better than the right note. So, I do not discard images which are serendipitous “,mistakes”..

Downtown and on to Duncan

A few weeks ago my buddy Al and I rode around and in Grenville we saw the crane and flag. then we went to Duncan to check out the main drag, not necessarily pretty but definitely interesting to me.

Mill Windows

Mill windows are interesting for their patterns and when textured express the colors and shapes of the outside while blurring the details. The color bands seen against the sharp outlines of the panes makes for an interesting contrast.

These images were made in Greenville Center for Creative Arts in Greenville, SC (https://www.artcentergreenville.org). The Center houses artists’ studios, gallery space and an Art School. Go visit.

The Old House and Bud’s

Why do I return to places like the old house ? When I turn on my computer I look for images that still appeal to me and the old house and Bud’s Village Shop just keep calling, so here they are. I think that black and white serves to bring out the shapes and textures as well as being a bit more intense. In this set, color, while pleasing, is a distraction for me.

Rainy Day Wall

This wall is an ideal location for rainy day shooting. The relatively subtle colors and textures seem to be strengthened by the wetness. The shapes of the doors and windows are also interesting for thier patterns.

Museum of International Folk Art

Back to New Mexico to the Museum off International Folk Art (http://www.moifa.org), a place where days can be spent studying the world(s) of folk art. The building and the art is inspirational. There will probably be more images to come

An Old Home Place

A few days ago Alice and I found an old house but I forgot to put a memory card in my camera but the light was lousy, so nothing lost. The second time I was more careful and here are some of the images. The old home and surrounding property is magical.

There were more things to see but they are for next time.

Cerrillos

One of the many great things about photography  is that you can revisit old favorites provided you can find them again an hour or less. Since I am playing with my New Mexico trip my pictures are still available in seconds, not hours. I feel no compulsion about hopping from place to place in this journey as well as revisiting place to find new images.
