When one draws blind (that is, without looking at the paper), occasionally one misjudges. The sketch below is an example of such a miscalculation. I began with the jacket draped over the back of the chair. The torso and upper leg are in correct proportion with each other. The distance from knee to shoe is […]
This is street photography. On this street, the four paint drips and the leaf created a design that caught my eye.
This photo, taken from a roof patio, highlights the vertical and horizontal stripes. They are the star of this image, protected by the intervening red flagged rope.
In this blind drawing, I did very little interior detail. There is just enough to determine the gender of the subjects.
Multiple reflections and geometric divisions provide the environment for this self portrait. The large repetitive rectangles in the foreground and the smaller ones superimposed thereon, are reminiscent of unrolled strips of photographic film. Thus, even though this is a digital photograph, it is an homage to film photography.
This is a motley group of students (according to my blind-drawn rendering). The two young women are the most realistic, while the outline of their male does not resemble its subject in any way. There is a sense of ambiguity about this grouping of figures.
In the last photograph in this series, I caught a number of visual elements often found in parking lots in the US: dotted white lines, indicating driving lanes; a red line that notes an emergency area; a striped region that warns of a speed bump and an white-striped outlined area that indicates a no parking zone.

The middle fellow is questioning a point made by the young lady. He does this surreptitiously to his friend as the woman looks away. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

‘Analog and Digital’ is a good alternate title for this photo.
