I have to admit, I love documentary style photography.  It’s the best way to see the beauty of reality.

Photo Friday: One Man’s Ordinary

February 9, 2018

The biggest issue with many photographers is they get complacent with their surroundings and don’t think they can find anything “interesting” to shoot.  I read an article during the 80’s that helped me through this problem. It said that what one man finds uninteresting, another finds amazing.

Don’t allow yourself to think you have nothing to shoot, because it’s all interesting to someone.

First Look Photo: City Architecture

February 7, 2018

Thanks to the wonderful website 52Frames.com I have been looking at some of the architecture of Portland.  I really like the looks of the city building, in the tower, at night.  I especially like the way the arches are lit up.

We all have things we are attached to, like the toys of our childhood, but as time goes on that attachment fades, and is quickly replaced by something else.

Wanting to try something different, I decided to photograph a flag next to a building, from the base of the flag pole.

Photo Friday: Leading Lines

January 19, 2018

This week, I had a convergence of photo assignments.  Both my school, and website challenge called for leading lines.  Here is my response.  I love how the sled contrasts with the rest of the scene.

People talk about the path to your dreams, but how about a dreamy path.
