Aspendell, California

“Photography gives us for the first time a feeling of the structure of things with an intensity which the eye, limited by its accommodation, had hitherto been quite unable to perceive.” – Otto Steinert

The Buttermilks

I love photographing clouds, no matter whether they’re complex with texture or simple and ethereal. On this particular evening, the alpine glow at sunset was spectacular, and the landscape filled with the most beautiful light. What caught my eye and motivated me to take this shot was the ray-like streaks of clouds that stretched into the sky. Obviously, this isn’t something I could have planned for. But my readiness with the camera allowed intuition to take over and I was able to photograph the scene before the magic disappeared. I like the simplicity of this image and how it makes the landscape feel small yet grand at the same time. This duality creates a contrasting interest that draws me in. How does it make you feel?

Italy

This image was shot in 2008 somewhere in Italy. Unfortunately, I don’t remember exactly where it was. This was made with a Holga toy camera on Kodak Tri-X.

Point Mugu State Park

Here’s another image made in Point Mugu State Park with a Zone VI 8×10 view camera on Provia. I’m not sure why I never scanned and printed this image until now. Like the two previous images, I feel that this B&W version is better.
