A Walk along Myakkahatchee Creek


April 21, 2019

This collection of photographs begins, in a way, where the last post left off: with trees of life. The plants growing on these trees seem a little different from the ones shown in the last post—perhaps because they immediately border the water. Two photographs separate the trees of life from reflections in the creek: one I think of as essence of tiger—a small stream on its way to the creek—and an arrangement of dead leaves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Hoses in Poses, Continued 5


February 1, 2019

Some of these lines may be cables of some sort rather than hoses, but I don’t have a good rhyme for them. Found all these guys at the marina in Sarasota’s Bayfront Park.

 

 

 


If You Go to Boston . . .


December 10, 2018

Because of the kindness of three people, I am privileged (along with 61 other photographers) to be exhibiting a photograph in the Passageway of the Lafayette City Center in Boston. The Passageway links Macy’s with the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The show, Abstraction Attraction, is up now through May 5, 2019. Note that you can see all the photographs online. If you happen to be in the Passageway during this time and see my photo, please let me know! The photographs were selected by Paula Tognarelli, executive director and curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography. Here’s the chosen photo, The Fish Bins of Cortez 38, and a link to other fish-bin photos. Big thanks to Stephen Tomasko, who sent me the entry information, and to my friends Katie Brown and Robert Taylor, who prompted Stephen by telling him that I “was a photographer, too.”


Missing the Madison Brass Works


October 24, 2018

In 2008 the Madison Brass Works building was not what many other people would call attractive. Well, you know the rest. I spent considerable time entranced by this window that July. Alas, revisiting the building will not allow my continued enjoyment, at least of this window. This is how the building looks now.

 Here are details of some of the glass blocks:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The Farmhouse 1


August 19, 2018

Some of you will remember the photographs of the Pennsylvania farmhouse windows taken last year. (See here and here and here.) Last year my best intentions to take many photographs inside the house were thwarted by my wish instead to socialize and play at other things. This year I was a bit more disciplined but, I think, not to the real detriment of playing games and schmoozing. Here’s the beginning of this year’s harvest of Pennsylvania farmhouse photographs.


Remnants of Winter; Harbingers of Spring 10


April 7, 2018

Although the temperature in the area never rose above 36 degrees Fahrenheit March 4, the sun was out, dislodging snow and ice from tree branches overhanging the Back Pond.


Remnants of Winter; Harbingers of Spring 9


April 6, 2018

By the time you see this post, spring may have appeared in full in northeast Ohio, but this blog will linger on the transition from winter for a while longer. While the photographs in the previous eight posts were taken in Oberlin (on March 10), the rest of this series features photos taken in Schoepfle Garden. I always make my way down to the Vermilion River by way of the Back Pond. Here’s how the pond looked March 4.


A Car for Linda? 4


September 5, 2017

I may be confusing people. This is not my car, nor are the cars in any post with the title “A Car for Linda?” It is a photograph of a car (and a reflection) like photographs of cars that I take. Earlier photographs of cars that I posted—the ones, called “A Car for Ken”—were like photographs of cars that a fellow blogger named Ken takes. (Keep scrolling on his site; you’ll find some.) Ken avoids reflections in cars; I seek them.

A Car for Linda? 2

(Ken doesn’t do reflections in cars, usually.)
