I may be sketching for a few days. This is one view of my alternate studio. It is nice to get back to the basics: pencil and paper.
I never realized that the underside of a shipping palette could be so colorful.
On my way to lunch, I passed a desiccated section of a parking lot. Paint was dried and chipped, especially on the yellow tapered curb that echoes the slope of the handicapped ramp and borders the red, rubberized mat. There is a pole that juts out and reaches the plane at which the camera snapped […]
Within the frame of my camera, I rearranged the parking lot elements, from my post 80 Yellow Dots, and added another, to make this photograph.
I have visited one newly refurbished parking lot several times in the past few weeks. The newly painted lines, concrete surface and rubberized pedestrian safety mats offer me, as a street photographer, the opportunity to design interesting photographs. The proximity and arrangement of these parking lot constituents, as I framed them, became geometric visual elements […]
I began with a shadow green circle, hoping to be inspired to form a character ala Joan Miró or Paul Klee. Somehow I ended up with a vase and flowers. I liked experimenting with alternating the reds and greens in the foreground and background.
I got another one: Why did the chicken go to the seance? . . . To get to the other side!
I dream repeatedly about a place where I formerly worked. There were two buildings separated by a driveway that led to an open courtyard. In my dream there was a wall of ocean water between the buildings with killer whales thrashing about.
Lately it is difficult to distinguish between normal aches and pains and the pains that will only increase with the onset of decrepitude. Is my arm pain related to my back? Pinched nerve? Arthritis? Worse? Is this a harbinger of what is to come?
I like juxtapositions and, visiting a new parking lot, I found an interesting combination I hadn’t seen before: the green curb that indicates short-term (i.e., 10-30 minute) parking directly abutting a blue curb that defines a handicapped parking place.
