Squicker is one of the 4 artistic actions that I have been practicing with. Ya'll are way ahead of me though.
I'm looking forward to the graphic novel and want to know the rest of the story! S-

Re: Rusty stuff

This one is ancient, may go back to my tiny Nikon L-12 with it's goes-forever DOF. I don't even remember where this was, except West (Montana or Wyoming most likely). I reworked this in Photoshop to try to give it some background blur since the rusty sculpture didn't stand out nearly well enough. I...

Re: A Door Knob

I'm reminded of the photograph by Ruth Bernhard. Thanks for sharing this Ernst! Hers is much more dynamic than mine. I've long been attracted to door knobs and handles, old hardware, all manner of old junk. Now I live in it at least a few days a week and I'm exploring it with camera. The clear ones...

#52-81: Tank This was attached to the back of a forklift, so I presume it was its fuel supply tank. Matt What a great vintage-looking image this is! I love old machinery, and while angles might work, this straightforward framing has excellent balance and geometry. Well spotted and nicely conceived.

The top bird is enough but the bottom one is astounding. The artistic version takes it into the next realm of beauty and is m...

Re: My Corner Office

Jeepers. Am I the only one who took one look and said "Andrew Wyeth?" :thumbup: (OK) Well, the old lady who took it is almost always thinking about Andrew Wyeth when I'm in this old house; long before I ever picked up a camera, I heard Wyeth whispering to me about curtains and windows and corners a...

Re: The Secrets of Flowers

As everyone knows, I'm prone to keep everything in the frame even when I shouldn't. I agree he may not be clear enough and if he were they wouldn't be, so everything is a bit compromised. I don't think it's a spider, I've just called them OtherBugs. I've seen what I think is the same ones on these ...

Van came to visit the studio the other day so I can continue my baseball series.
I love your baseball shots, having been a baseball mom for 30 years and now in my third year of baseball grandmothering. I like the "dirty kids" in their unis, with your great vintage-looking treatment.
