Laurelhurst Park photograph. Met this gentleman yesterday in the park. We chatted awhile and I took his picture.  Posted by Picasa
Morning Glory Posted by Picasa I took this picture yesterday in my basement. Photographed the flower in a vase with a photograph of clouds very close to the image so it would be only slightly out of focus. Flat lighting so no shadows. Much easier then photoshop.

Diane Arbus
I first saw a Diane Arbus photograph in 1971 in a short article about a New York show of hers in Time Magazine. The photograph was titled 'A Jewish giant at home with his parents in the Bronx, N.Y. 1970'. The square formatted image is lit by a circle of light from a single flash that darkens the corners and gives the illusion that one is peering through a peep hole on to something private and hidden. The picture reveals an enormous man crouched over as if constrained by the room itself peering down at two smaller people; a man and a woman. The giant is out of proportion with everything and everyone in the room capturing a surreal moment within a real photograph. The effect is unsettling and disturbing. Her image is so personal and unique a perspective that it cannot be duplicated. To look at a Diane Arbus photograph is to see something that can only be revealed by a Diane Arbus photograph. Like an image taken with film that records light outside the visible spectrum it reveals a world that is before us but invisible to us. Posted by Picasa

Another image from Goose Hollow 1975 A friend took me here back in the 70's, a block of old victorian buildings unoccupied. This picture was taken in the back in what had once been a garden with fountains. One of the buildings on the block was one of only a few buildings left from the 1905 Lewis and Clark Exposition that was hauled to the site and left there. The buildings themselves were wired with silent alarms but the grounds around the buildings were easy to explore. I took many pictures there but only recently started to print them. You can find more in the archives. Posted by Picasa

A Natural Photograph
I found this leaf in my yard two years ago and pressed it to preserve. I've yet to find another like it. Shadows from other branches and leaves created a natural image burned in by the sun on the leaf to make a pure photograph.
