That Green One in the Back

I actually photographed these marbles back in March, just as the days were really lengthening and very, very bright. I have about 60 photos, and I like them all, and every so often I pull one out for my “Lost My Marbles” series, especially when I need a good dose of sun and color, like today.

Random Smiles

Sometimes what we have hidden inside comes out in unexpected ways.

Make sure what you have hidden inside is a smile.

You never know.


Aliens Have Landed

We are Watching You

What is this? Are those eyes in wrinkled skin?

It’s funny when you take things out of context that a familiar item can appear to be something else entirely. And when the leaves fall from the trees and suddenly you see the eyes in the bark of the silver maple you’ve walked past every day.

Industrial objects often have a beauty about them, whether clean and new or rusted, peeling and battered. It’s not often they have a sense of humor.

Objects, Abstract

I photographed this everyday vegetable in my kitchen when the sun angled through the window, highlighting only that, but reflecting in a few other places. It wasn’t want I’d been intending, but I like it better than what I’d been literally shooting for. It’s a red onion, as you might guess from the little tail in the lower right. It’s on an olive green glass raised platter and I’d been trying to get the contrast between the maroon onion and the yellow green glass, but the sun moved before I got the full shot. It just looks like a collection of visual elements until you see the onion.


At Sunset in the Woods, 2010

Sometimes camera shots abstract themselves. I was walking in the woods as the sun went down, and as the sun glowed brighter and brighter just over the horizon, it flared through the branches. I have an entire series of these, but this was my favorite.
