Epic Selfie

Taking it back to the Victorian Era, the days of top hat’s and tails. This was an assignment piece to cover the concept of “Magic” I decided that the image should be “magical”; surrealistic even. It was during the  Halloween season, so costume props were easy to find. The lantern was not. I had to create it from a bird feeder, kitchen towel holder, and speedlight.

Detective series still life

Another shot from my ongoing detective series. This image was taken with my Nikon FG-20 on Arista iso 100 black and white film on April 20th 2004. The time on the watch was the correct time (a.m.) I’ve always been a night owl.

Midas touch

Statuesque, feminine, and adorned in gold. The nude figure of a woman is the most beautiful piece of art. What makes it art? The repetition of curvilinear lines and shapes. Their soft and subtle texture of skin that complements whatever it is adjacent to. The rhythm of movement in their posing. The values and supplementary shapes created when light is cast upon them. They have inspired artists for many years and will continue for many more.

Finished edit No. 2 for a shoot with @misfitaly_x3  down at Virginia Beach Oceanfront. The streets were empty and made for the perfect backdrop. This shot was taken with my Canon digital camera, I also took some with my Nikon FG that I’m waiting on processing.

These eyes have seen many things in life. They’ve seen joy and hurt; many destinations between east, west, and southern coasts; and many people come and go throughout my 30 years and 357 days of life. I use what these eyes have seen as experience. As an artist, I tend to use these experiences to remember, create, and recreate those experiences or to create new experiences. Experience leads to knowledge, and knowledge leads to wisdom, wisdom leads to enlightenment, enlightenment leads to new experiences.

I really need to make my way to Miami South Beach again with @martikax . It’s such a beautiful backdrop for images like this one.
