Georgetown Notes

I've supported Worldwide Photowalk every year since its inception. As you can only register for one Walk, I went to Georgetown at 6:30 AM as an un-registered walk on, and as such did not get the memo that the group had elected to shoot elsewhere. As I am want to do, I spent three hours walking downtown in solo, collecting images for this ad hoc book that I finally got around to finishing. Hardcover accordion bind from manilla folders, with defaced prints and collage.

Monday Muse - Hav'in Some Fun

Last Thursday morning I headed up to Cincinnati very early in the morning for some Street photography reconnaissance. After a quick stop at Holtman’s Donuts, I spent five hours traversing downtown…top to bottom and side to side…twice! While there were plenty of possibilities for backgrounds, I encountered only isolated singles and a few small groups, possibly the reason I never see street photography from Cincinnati posted anywhere. If I lived there I would know the when and where.

The plan from the onset was to shoot color for a photobook cropped to 2.75:1 Xpan format in post processing. Somehow I collected enough images to make a full spread book in a French Fold binding. Having not made that particular binding, I made a small dummy, and was encouraged enough to start assembling the materials to start making the book sometime later this week. While it’s good to challenge oneself, it also feels good to not be under some self imposed deadline.

Monday Muse - Looking Ahead

In June's Muse I mentioned my affinity for Night Market! Haven't exactly found my groove yet…but I'm collecting images for a book project, and possibly a print show at the Parachute Factory late summer of 2018.

August Show at Good Foods COOP


My search is for atmospheric light and gesture in the ordinary, captured by interpretive black&white snapshots made with a simple camera. I work in a variety of genres with a recent preference for street photography and making handmade photobooks. For me the print is paramount…“an image doesn’t truly exist until it’s printed”.

Purchase a print today by making a $20 per print contribution to the Good Foods CO-OP “Give Where You Live” program. Simply remove the print[s] make your contribution at the register, ask for an envelope. Thanks!
Note: Prints are sized to fit inexpensive 8x10 Ready Made frames.

Monday Muse - Out in the Rain

Absolutely love to shoot in inclement weather, however, I will rarely leave the house to drive somewhere, being influenced by the odd notion that I don't want to risk wrecking our car in the melee. If I'm already on the ground, bring on the rain, snow, fog whatever…go figger ; ]

Monday Muse - Bugs Me

The viewer provides the narrative…the lens provides the bones…story telling is a bunch of pumped up internet-ness.

Monday Muse - August - Good Foods Community Art Gallery

Heavy yard work consumed this past week, first time in a while I haven’t picked up a lens in a week, but there was work to be done before the dog days arrived…to be honest…everyday is a dog day at my house.

I’ve been invited to exhibit at the Good Foods CO-OP Community Art Gallery for the month of August. I will be exhibiting [16] unframed letter size, signed black & white luster prints from the archives. Unique to the exhibit is that a print may be purchased at any time by making a $20 per print contribution to the Good Foods CO-OP “Give Where You Live” partners program, this month's partner is seedleaf. Simply remove the print, make your contribution at the register, and take with. I will check in periodically to refresh the prints to maintain some semblance of a show.
