Bruise

05/11/2013 — Leave a comment

Have to admit that the colors in this remind me of the shades of blue and purple one gets from a really bad bruise (think of a real zinger from sliding in baseball, maybe like the one in ‘A League of Their Own‘). Or perhaps a field of lupine.

Another rainy morning makes me think of blue still more despite the warm golds and oranges of the fallen leaves.

There’s something rather pleasing about the geometric shapes of this train hardware. Usually it’s the colors or textures of old machinery that catches my attention but in this case I think it was the shapes.

Rather happy with how this shot captures the essence of rain. Or is it oil?

Cold values

I keep finding myself drawn to blue values and cold palettes without meaning to lately. See what I mean?

How about you guys, have you found yourselves drawn to any particular colors lately?

Crazy

Crazy about the colors I caught in this photo. It was such a dark, overcast day full of downpours so capturing this makes getting soaked pretty worth it.

Feeling a blue today, one way or the other…Ready to move on to a cold, snowy winter.

Could do with a little rain on this overcast autumn day…

Here are a few more from the rainy days last week. Really liking the subtle golds and blues and the warm tones of the rain drops.

Hope everyone’s week has gotten off to a good start. Any plans this week, guys?

Palette

There’s something about this photo, I don’t know what it is. I guess it’s the colors; their combination and proportions. Perhaps they remind me of Vincent Van Gogh’s work while he was in Arles. One of his variations of Augustine Roulin as ‘La Berceuse‘ (1, 2,3, 4)? Or maybe Crab on its back?’Or maybe one of his self-portraits? Maybe I’m completely off base with Van Gogh. Perhaps its Little Jerry from Sesame street? I don’t know, what do you guys think? Does this color palette remind you of anything? Just curious.

Blur

The flash of colors in these outakes make me think of blue and yellow macaws flapping by. There used to be an antique store by the harbor with such a parrot who greeted visitors at the door. These days, the shop has moved to Maine and the parrot is now a green wing, but I’m sure it’s still a treasure trove of dusty wonders.

Wet Rainbow

Pleasantly surprised this shot came out. At this point in the afternoon, it was raining so hard I was having trouble seeing and had to keep wiping off my lens.

Soaked

Last week we finally got some much needed rain. So that meant a few things for me: working out inside and spending hours in the rain with my camera. It sounds nuts, I know, but putting up with the wet weather is worth it when you get shots like this:

Looking forward to sharing more of these with you over the next few days. How about you? What have you guys been working on lately?

Fuel

Sleep patterns always seem to get erratic when the seasons change and with that energy levels can fluctuate too. Today, I could do with a little more energy so this picture seemed rather appropriate. Found it the other day while exploring a train yard.

Really digging this combination of color palette and off-kilter numbers. Reminds me of spreadsheets gone awry.

Summer skies

28/08/2013 — Leave a comment

It’s been a pretty perfect summer here in Charm City— a mix of hot and sunny with a healthy dose of rain. But I will admit it’s been a disappointing year so far for the big storms that blow in with hurricanes. The upside of course is everything has grown like a glorious jungle and swimming outside is just beautiful (I’ve been able to do laps out in the sun since April or May and look forward to doing so for several more weeks).

Despite the beautiful sunny weather, I still keep hoping for a nice big storm. So while I sit inside today working on a mix of things, I keep glancing out the window to see if the overcast skies have transitioned to storm clouds. No such luck as yet. In the meantime, here are some of my texture photos that make me think of the rainy days I keep hoping for:

Clouds

21/08/2013 — Leave a comment

It’s no secret that I take a lot of pictures— some more “serious” photographs but most probably qualify as snapshots. Recently I’ve noticed how many snaps I seem to take of clouds. It was never a conscious goal to document clouds, nor do I spend much time in real life looking up at the sky. But for some reason in all of my travels, I end up taking heaps of cloud pictures. Perhaps it’s all the time I spend seated by windows on planes and trains and driving around the countryside.

How about you? Do you find yourself unconsciously taking pictures around a (semi-)consistent theme?

Stripes

While these photos don’t capture stripes in the traditional sense, I still can’t help noticing a pattern (of patterns?) in these shots.
