Had forgotten about this photo and then came across it again this afternoon. Not sure why I never posted this but here it is now.

At least one person I care about really loves the color yellow. So here is a collection of a few yellows I’ve come across, just for them:

Have been feeling colorful lately and enjoying combinations of colors I wouldn’t necessarily expect to like. Here are a few examples that fit that description— pinks and yellows paired with cold lavender-y blues that remind me of medicine or detergent.

Salt

06/01/2014 — Leave a comment

It’s turning out to be a cold winter for a change and while we’ve had some snow from a few storms, I’m still hoping for more. And in America, where there is snow, there is often salt.

A while ago I was driving through the mountains in a snow storm. Sometimes even crummy roads and worrisome weather can be beautiful.

Sitting in my car this time of year sometimes feels like being in a conservatory.

Between the wind and frigid temperatures, this time of year can be hard on one’s skin. Looking through unpublished photos, I couldn’t help but think of the winter’s harsh effect on skin when I spotted these:

Hope you’re all keeping warm and well-hydrated wherever you are.

Ever wished you could wear my photos? Well now you can thanks to Print All Over Me.

At the moment, there are a handful of product options (T-shirts, sweats, pillows,etc) but I’ve applied a few of my photos to the products that struck me as most useful.

I’m pretty eager to see what the scarves, workshirts and totes all look like in person.

Pretty neat, huh? Have a pattern, photo or drawing of your own that you’d love to wear too or give as a gift? It’s easy to upload your own pieces for one offs or to sell at PAOM. And if you’re not feeling inspired by your own images, there are tons to pick from in their shop.

Freezing rain

It’s been another bonkers week and as is becoming a habit of late, my focus has not be on blogging, unfortunately. So it goes.

On the upside, things seem to be settling down. And today it snowed for hours (the first snow of the year) which makes this northerner happy. We’ll see what next week holds in store. In the meantime, here’s a little something I’ve been working on the last few days. Had considered it a “discarded draft,” but will admit it looks kind of interesting. What do you guys think of the piece?

This year has felt brutal in places and the last few days/weeks have been pretty intense (that’s not to say there haven’t been some highlights too but it’s been hard to get them to outshine the negative at times). Tomorrow is a new week though and in a month it will be a new year. So tonight as I try to focus on the glimmers of positive in the last week and forgive myself for skipping blogging and getting behind on work in deference to other emergencies, I am hopeful that soon the highlights will outshine the clouds.

Even though I took these pictures on an overcast, drizzly day, the color palettes captured here feel warm and sunny. A little summer-y even.

A few more from my last walkabout through Copenhagen. The building in the second picture was under construction when I snapped these, wonder how it looks now.

Would love to know what was hidden under the paper-y residue on the rest of this engraved brass plate.

Beetle wings

Can’t help but thinking of jewel beetles when I look through these images. Took these a few years ago in a railyard and am a little stunned they’ve just been collecting dust in a folder until now.

While sorting photos recently, it struck me that I have unwittingly amassed a collection of photos of the letter ‘F.’ Strange, really. Here are a few:

I think I like this second to last one the best.

Petroglyph

05/11/2013 — Leave a comment

Oftentimes when I’m shooting pictures of old trains or rusted machinery or digging through oily machine shops, I find unusual marks or symbols on some of the components. While some of the symbols are signs to precaution mechanics or obvious makers marks, some prove to be inscrutable seemingly more ancient petroglyph than anything else. Here’s one such mark:

It really burns my toast though that I didn’t notice the rain on my lens while snapping this shot; hindsight, eh?

Bruise

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.

How’s everyone’s week so far?

Update: Like this photo? It is now available as an archival matted print in my Etsy shop.

It’s also available printed on shirts, pillows & totes here on Print All Over Me and on a few other products from Society6.

Blå

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?
