Artistry Versus Performance

I admit, I do not have a very refined palette when it comes to fine dining. As long as the food is fresh and tastes good, I’m just consuming calories. I have rarely in my life made an evening of fine dining with friends or loved ones. The last fine dining experience I had was no small sensation. Steve and… Continue reading

Have You Missed Me?

How long has it been since I’ve blogged? Weeks and weeks! Since December 7th, to be exact—over a month! In the past 10 years I don’t think I’ve ever gone a whole month without blogging! But life got really, really insanely busy. I have moved back to Atlanta—talk about a time- and task-intensive process! I’m still utterly depressed about returning… Continue reading

Paint the Barn

I recall, as a young child, hearing misogynist preachers say, “If the ole barn needs painting’, slap a coat on it.”. They were referring to their own enlightenment in allowing “liberated” women to now wear make up! I think they were trying to be funny while letting everyone know that God was now cool with women painting themselves. What simple… Continue reading

Sausalito Fire Hydrant Bandit Re-emerges!

The villainous Sausalito fire hydrant bandit has re-emerged, gasp: with a new colour palate! You may recall I previously posted about the bandit’s outrageously gratuitous and unsolicited art installations around town: painting the fire hydrants around Sausalito. He was even encountered on our street! Well, apparently, the villain remains at large, unfettered by prison, and has struck again on our… Continue reading

Stunning Self-Portraits by 14 Year Old Boy

Carole, this post is for you! (lots of macro work) 14-year-old Zev from Natick, Massachusetts, has taken the photography world by storm with his surreal photo manipulations. Better known by the nickname of ‘fiddle oak’, Zev presents a highly imaginative portfolio of surreal self-portraits, which he created together with his sister Nellie (aged 17). His work seems to mirror the… Continue reading

Art and Craftsmanship

I vividly remember, as a very young child, my father pulling into a gas station. I recall exactly where it was. Nothing exists there now. In fact, it’s been paved over and is now a major road intersection. But then, it was a gas station with dirt parking, no pavement, anywhere. It was hot. (Florida generally is.) The car windows… Continue reading

@TomLowe – Stunning Work! Bravo!!

I’ve blogged a a couple of times (here and here) about Tom Lowe’s time-lapse project. He worked on it for some time. Well, it’s finished. It’s beyond what I had imagined it would be. I just watched it while I was exercising. If you want to see places in the western US and our galaxy in ways you have never… Continue reading

Ansel Adams (Me) at Work Atop Mount Tam

Steve took a picture of me today (right) while I was setting up to shoot a panorama. He published it to Facebook. A friend of his said I looked like Ansel Adams. (I’ll take that compliment though completely undeserved.) Another friend of his thought I was setting up to shoot (kill) some poor living creature (called a pano?). No, no,… Continue reading

Not Another Time Lapse, Please!

I know, I post a lot of them here, and over time, well, it’s just another time lapse. But I’ve tried over the past several months to only include ones that were doing something novel, innovative, advancing the art form. This time lapse certainly does that. It could have been a bit shorter by deleting some of the portions of… Continue reading
