2012 – A Gallery of Favorites And A Year In Review

Regular visitors and readers will not be surprised to discover that this has been an uneven year for my photography hobby. Detailing the whys would come off as both needy and whiney, but I think it’s both fair to say and not too dramatic to explain that I’m not sure why I’m doing this. I […]

Window Treatment 5

I suppose one could argue that this is not properly part of the series.  Before I explain, let me note that Number 4 was here  Number 3 was here. Number 2 was here and the first one is here.  This is taken from a different point of view — not just further back but the window that is the main […]

Window Treatment 2 [and Contest Update]

If you’re thinking you somehow missed Window Treatment 1, that’s because it’s the image from this post that had a different name. This is the same subject, with the perspective pulled back just a bit. Contest Update I appreciate everyone who offered a suggestion on what images I should consider getting printed and adding to […]

My New Rule – It’s Not Art [And Ongoing Contest]

Not my best image, perhaps, but it led me to formulate a new rule. If I cannot tell whether something is meant to be art or functional, then it’s not art. That doesn’t mean it is functional, and it might be meant to be art, but it is not art. I have no idea what […]

Watching The Detectives [And Contest]

Another black and white foggy image today. Chris Maskell left a comment on yesterday’s photo discussing how he used to avoid shooting in fog and had to make himself do it. I found some strong shots where he overcame his aversion here and here. I think I went through something similar. It wasn’t so much […]
