I decided to go for a walk at night and collect fallen leaves. My goal was to get a lot of different colors. I then captured each of them using a flatbed scanner, cropped them into stripes, and printed them out… You can hang just one by itself and it is beautiful, but when you combine many of them they being to work together in harmony. Happy fall.
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.
