I saw the signs of patriotism and just waited. Many people came into the frame but this man – with his skin art- seemed to be the best fit. “America, too” is the title and my way of saying the country is big enough for people of all experiences.America, too web

I am always fascinated by the way a simple change in light can transform a setting AND create mood. Then you just wait for something to happen…..NEW DAY blog

Graffiti- or street art (at best)- often reflects the economy, society or both- as well as the people who walk our streets. In the middle of one of America’s richest cities, I found this image a contradiction.LEft Behind web

I tend to shoot people more than things but the Freedom Tower shown nicely in the morning light today in New York. I think the trees remind us we build great building but only trees really last.LEt Freedom RIng BLOG

Sometimes the best portraits make you wonder- give you less than more “information.” I’m not sure how I feel about this latest capture, but your comments will be helpful. My title options range from Head Shot to Good Head.best-head-shot-web

Finding interesting content on the streets is not unlike looking through a kaleidoscope- sometimes you see nothing and then, out of the blue, the right justaposition of people and environment come together.

I need to walk my butt off to find content.fair-warning-web

I knew my crummy , low end -sort of point and shoot -would survive the rain just barely (protected by one of those cheap $5 umbrellas you get from savy NY vendors). Still, I knew I wanted to capture mood, while I caught a cold. I think I succeeded…

Just back from my trip to Asia, I just printed this image- a good example (hopefully) of how contrast can add power to an image. Contrast of both subject matter and tones. As always, a decent images comes from a lot of walking and shooting. You can see more of my trip at http://www.SLMphoto.com (go to Combinations 16 and 17) or visit me at Courthouse Market (SAT) and at Eastern Market (SUN). Gee, from 80 degrees to winter weather. I will be the guy shivering…
