Sometimes curiosity makes me impulsive. While grocery shopping this strange spiky fruit caught my eye and I had to purchase it. Apparently it is called a Horned Mellon or African Cucumber or better yet Blowfish Fruit. I cut it in half and grabbed my macro lens… To me it looks like the mountainous desert landscape of a strange alien planet. I envision some fantasy-like fuzzy creatures migrating across the surface.

While staying in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I dragged the large format camera and some 4×5 color film down to catch the sunrise. It was perfect. The final image titled “Transcendence” involved taking a fast exposure to catch the sunrise, a slow exposure to blur the ocean waves, and then blending the two into one photograph.
