In keeping with my current emphasis on still images, this one was taken inside a wonderful Moroccan shop in Petaluma, California called “bay-ti”. It consists of nothing but an antique bowl and some dried vegetation. I think their combination is quite beautiful.
This photograph of my wife’s favorite flowers, tulips, marks the beginning of what I hope will be a new direction for me. Until now I have concentrated mainly on street photography. Going forward I plan to concentrate on images with a significant “beauty component” because I don’t want to get stuck in only one form of photography. We’ll see how this project evolves but I’m exited to try it.
I died for beauty but was scarceAdjusted in the tomb,When one who died for truth was lainIn an adjoining room. He questioned softly why I failed?‘For beauty,’ I replied.‘And I for truth, — the two are one;We brethren are,’ he said. And so, as kinsmen met a night,We talked between the rooms,Until the moss had reached our lips,And covered up our names…..Emily Dickinson
Desperation is beginning to be emotional factor. The rain is making sane people nuts.
I really like taking photographs of people on the street with window reflections behind them. This shot is a good example of that. It’s out front of a coffee bar with the reflection of the city library in the background. The logo on the woman’s jacket serves as the picture’s title. The natural light on the woman’s face is helpful too.
This small plant stem blowing in the breeze contains in it the dust of stars. If we can understand it we will know all there is to know.
It’s always a pleasure seeing a completely contented person. It may only be for the briefest moment but sitting still and loosing oneself in thought should be a daily goal for all of us.
