I have an Instagram account.
Having the ability to access the talent out there and to show off my wares is a good thing. Yet, I haven’t posted in awhile.
I don’t know why I gave up on Instagram. But I have put some thought into it. Reason one – everybody does it.
Instagram has the sublime, the dreck, and everything between. I really don’t like selecting – thus expanding – followers by doing so.
Likes aren’t real important to me. It doesn’t influence what I shoot.
I suppose though, Instagram is a good venue for images such as these.
I’ve had a bit of a creative breakdown lately. These images may not be my best work, because I have not been working at it. This series is a bit of serendipity – while being prepared. I feel better shooting with intent, when I have an idea or theme to work with.
Perhaps I should post more on Instagram and let my peers decide what is good photography. Meanwhile, I keep shooting stuff the way I see it.
These, and all other images on this Site are for sale.

“I see the shot as a beginning, as an image I can get ‘painterly’ with – giving it visual richness, abstracting it, or making it more conceptual.
As darkroom technique has always been an essential part of the photographer’s mastery of imagery – Photoshop is my darkroom. This process of post-production enhancement completes my relationship with the image.”
