the light at san ysidro

I carry a small notebook detailing locations I like, so I can return when circumstances are optimal to make a pleasing photograph. But, sometimes you just know that “we may never pass this way again.” At least not soon. So you work with whatever lighting mother earth is providing at that moment. No amount of twirling my high end polarizer was going to cut this light back, and there was construction and heavy equipment in almost any frame I chose besides straight on. I clicked the shutter a few times, not expecting much out of the ordinary. Yet when I returned home and looked through my raw images I was taken by this one. I think the light at San Ysidro was just what it was supposed to be!

the season is never over here

Which coast are we on, and what time of year is it anyway? Any guesses about where this is?

abandoned on the beach – a short photo study

Click the link above for a very short photo essay featuring a few “words and ¬†pictures” captured on a summer evening in the northeast. ¬†After a long day of video work, with interviews and much talking, it was nice to let the still camera be my voice for a few short minutes.

History speaks in so many ways.

Early Spring at Somerset Place. The trees, the buildings, the earth and the water, hold so many stories stretched over so much time.

Always more places to explore, more stories to tell. Story for story’s sake and story to meet strategy. Happy 2014 from words and pictures, inc.

Sometimes it’s not the thing itself.

Sometimes the shadow of a thing is more interesting than the thing itself. Walking thru Charleston at dusk offered many visual opportunities to be mindful and awake, noticing the play of light.
