Photo Study: Walk On Water

c>log

This is an older photograph taken in 1992 on film with a trusty Minolta XGM sporting an f1.2 50mm lens. “People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engage in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” (Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese monk, activisit and author, b. 1926)

Photo Study: One Gun In The Sun

c>log

An old naval artillery piece, all alone, in a brilliant early morning sun. Naval artillery or naval rifles refers to warship-mounted guns used in naval warfare for attacking enemy vessels, bombarding targets on shore, or for anti-structural demolition. Conversely, the term may be used as a descriptor about the naval rifles used in land batteries for anti-shipping area denial purposes. Smaller-bore guns are sometimes referred to as deck guns, such as on Coast Guard cutters and destroyers. A powerful gun and and even more powerful image. Thanks for viewing!

Fine Art: Color Form Composition No. 1

c>log

Although intrigued by transparency, I am also interested in opacity, the completely opposite state. The use of large blocks of solid colors with no modulation in tone is vibrant and eye stopping. Simple line work allows for the definition of the space and descriptions of activity or objects within that space. A simple use of perspective helps to deepen the space within the mass of color forms. This project is deeply related to the Take One and Take Two photo series recently posted on the Clog. Take a look, and thanks for looking here too…

Photo Series: Take One & Take Two

c>log

This pair of photos, from a series, explores the artist’s ongoing fascination with transparency. Which, is an image, text, or positive transparent photograph printed on transparent plastic or glass, able to be viewed using a projector. Here, you are the projector.

Also, transparency as used in the humanities and Pilatian theories, when used in a social context, implies openness, communication, and accountability. It is a metaphorical extension of the meaning that a “transparent” object is one that can be “seen through.
