Happy Halloween!

Shot with my reverse-lens Kodak Brownie camera a couple of years ago.

Through The Window

Shot through the window of a car speeding down the freeway earlier today. Composition and focus are a little off, but I like the colors.

Fall Trees And A Mid-Century Building

I love the color in this photo, and the light reflecting off of the ceiling of the building.

Autumn Panorama

It was a beautiful day today, so I took advantage of that and wandered around with my cameras for a while. This was shot in the Dan Ryan Woods on Chicago's southwest side.

This photo was shot last spring, but I always thought it looked sort of autumnal.

I shot this last July while wandering around the city. I like pedestrian-friendly places!

Cool Building, Bad Camera

This past summer,  I discovered some  old infrared film in a box in my studio closet, and shot a couple of rolls (I posted another photo shot with this film here.)  Unfortunately, I discovered that my old 35mm SLR camera is developing a sticky shutter. You can see the results in this photo. The light streak to the left of the corner of the building is caused by the shutter sticking. That makes the camera pretty much useless; the repair would cost more than the camera is worth. I like shooting these mid-century buildings in infrared, and I've got a few more rolls of infrared film, so I'll probably try again next summer with a different camera.

Autumn Rain

Took a cold, rainy walk around my neighborhood with my camera last Friday. This is part of what I returned home with.

Fence And Mural

Shot a couple of weeks ago in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood with my reversed-lens Kodak Brownie camera.

Ear Nose

It's a photo, not a collage. Or maybe it is a collage, but it's also a photo.

Water Motion

A couple of photos of a mountain stream shot while hiking in the Cascades last July. The first photo shows stopped motion, the bottom blurred motion. Which do you prefer?

Abstract Night

I like this one quite a bit. Accidental abstraction caused by hand holding the camera with a long telephoto lens and shooting at night. The lights of North Vancouver and reflections in water, shot from a 21st floor hotel balcony downtown.
