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…
Three ways over the fence. See if you can think of them all. The original finished photograph is a high dynamic range (HDR) image using a bracket of three exposures to bring out the optimum exposures for highlights, midtones and shadows. Thanks for viewing!

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.“

Sunday Morning Coming Down, written by Kris Kristofferson and made immortal by Johnny Cash, has been called the “best drinking song of all time.” It’s not a song about drinking, per se, but rather the dreadful morning after a big Saturday night out. But, before Sunday morning can come down, Sunday morning must come up. So here is what a bright Sunday morning coming up looks like through the eyes of a photographer, not necessarily through the eyes of a person who might be experiencing the pain of the song at the moment.
Well I woke up Sunday morning, With no way to hold my head that didn’t hurt. And the beer I had for breakfast wasn’t bad, So I had one more for dessert. Then I fumbled through my closet for my clothes, And found my cleanest dirty shirt. An’ I shaved my face and combed my hair, An’ stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.
I’d smoked my brain the night before, On cigarettes and songs I’d been pickin’. But I lit my first and watched a small kid, Cussin’ at a can that he was kicking. Then I crossed the empty street, ‘n caught the Sunday smell of someone fryin’ chicken. And it took me back to somethin’, That I’d lost somehow, somewhere along the way.
A buoy is a floating device that can have many different purposes. It can be anchored (stationary) or allowed to drift. There are many types of buoys in use today with names such as submarine buoy, sea mark buoy, life buoy, sonobuoy, surface marker buoy, decompression buoy, shot buoy, fairway buoy, tsunami buoy, marker buoy and lobster trap buoys (among many more types). Here is one type of buoy. Not sure what kind it is so we’ll call it Untitled Buoy No. 1. A study in color, contrast, isolation and dependence.
