Melanie, Version II

I did this a little differently from the earlier version. It reminds me of European Old Masters paintings. I'm not comparing myself to a EOM, but thats my first reaction to the photo.

Foggy morning

I liked how this tiny little stand of yellow and green was surrounded by brown, dead stuff. The daffodils are such a pleasing sight as winter turns to spring. They re-affirm life to me. Here, they are soaked in the fog/dew and still carry on...

Foggy Morning

This is both square and black and white. Is is, therefore, by definition, ART. Actually, I liked how small this tractor looked against the thick wall of fog. Thats a big @ss tractor!

I couldn't decide between black and white or color

Leading lines all over the place on this!

There's no place like home, no place like home

I did these from the back yard at my house. I loved the blues and the poofy white clouds. The trees look like nets waiting for cotton candy to catch on them...

More that I've been waiting for...

I like the old west feel of this

This might be better than the other one I liked so much. The band of sunlight right near the treeline is pretty cool.

I've had this photo

on my mind for several weeks. I knew I wanted to get the incredibly green grass, with a band of trees and deep blue sky... This morning started out as a foggy mess. I'll post pics of that later, but this after noon it really cleared up, with pretty poofy clouds in the sky. I knew I had to try for this.. and here it is!

Just Messin with the camera on the Side of the Road

I wanted to get some pics highlighting the green cover crop on this farm on my way home. I thought I'd dry zooming and clicking at once. I kind of liked this.
Edit: I took down the gross animal pic...

Artsy stuff from ESP

I love how the beam of light in the back goes onto the nightstand, and the symetry of the cell.

I liked how the window was up in the corner, and the bed back in the corner.

Boy that's some strong cleanser! ripped the bowl apart!

I liked the echoed shape of the cabinet and the door.

More prison shots

Annette and Don were the other two models at the workshop today. These are some grab shots between setups.

Andrea- Got out of prison for model behavior

I did a workshop today at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia with Dave Tejada. Andrea was one of the models Dave chose for the workshop. She was a trooper, as always. It was frickin cold in there! The top shot was one Dave set up, and the bottom two were ones I grabbed with her while we were between set ups. These are pretty much straight from the camera.

The other models and some prison pics follow.
