Red Balloon

Boy and Red Balloon

Boy and Red Balloon

I arrived in Cologne Germany with my business partner and fellow photographer Michael Reichmann yesterday.  We are here to cover Photokina, the worlds largest photo show.  As I always like to do in a city I visit is grab my camera and go out shooting.  I took the Olympus EM-1 out yesterday and made quite a few nice images.  This one of a boy playing with a balloon with his dad was the winner.  I shot it wait a 100-300 lens on the camera and that allowed me to shoot from across the street without them knowing.  Bottom line is spontaneity.

A Bit Of Abstract

Peeling Paint Abstract

Peeling Paint Abstract

If you have been following me for a while you know I love rust and decay.  One thing I really love is peeling paint.  I am thinking of doing  project where all I shoot and show is peeling paint.  The image above was made looking straight up at a ceiling in an abandoned house in the Palouse.  I centered the lightbulb and like that with all the abstract of the peeling paint there is the circular object obviously man made.  Fun stuff.

Shipwrecked, Svlabard, Norway

Shipwrecked, Svalbard, Norway (click on image 2 times to see larger)

I have been playing wit this image for a while.  This a shot of a ship that was wrecked or beached in Svalbard, Norway.  It has all the things I like, decay and rust in a beautiful setting.  I shot it at the angle I did to utilize the lines of the boat in the composition.  This was made with a Nikon d*00e and a 24-70mm lens.

Gold and Browns

The Golds And Browns Of The Palouse

The Golds And Browns Of The Palouse

Where on earth can you find colors like these.  The Palouse is like the color chip rack of a paint store. The is a classic example of the natural beauty in the Palouse during the harvest.  Freshly plowed fields next to fields that have just been harvested.  And, for a real treat you should see this place in the spring time.

Old Truck Headlight

Old Truck Headlight

Old Truck Headlight

In the Palouse as mentioned in previous posts there are a lot of abandoned trucks and cars, not to mention houses. This shot was made at the Texeco station where the owner collects old trucks.  I loves the color, rust and especially the lines of the headlight and truck.  So retro, so nice.  Shot with a Fuji XT-1.
