    Some Good Photo Days

    I’ve had a pretty good week photographing around the city of San Miguel in El Salvador. I find it fascinating that while all of the Central American countries I have lived in, have similarities - and most of my photographs reflect the same type of content —— the resulting images are completely...

    Discussion on Street Photography

    Los Angeles Sidewalks Even though I quoted Charlie Chipman, I started a new thread. This thread might be controversial, and I want to allow Charlie to enjoy his thread. I enjoyed viewing Charlie’s pictures. Some of this picture really caught my attention, especially the picture with Jesus...

    Flowers, Lines and Curves

    As somebody who usually aims for compositions that are geometrically "correct", I have recently been producing more and more work (including shooting with a fisheye lens) where things are very off-kilter, yet trying to maintain a pleasant balance. This was such an instance. While waiting for...
