The often predictable, usually irrelevant photoblog of a beloved museum photographer.

Mighty untitled.

Enough mandala-y things for a now...don't worry, they will be back. (probably next time). This is one of those things I just kinda made out of thin air. I think it looks like muscle fibers. I'm sure it would look gorgeous somewhere in your home/car/ on it if you think so, too.

Untitled? Check(erboard).

While I'm on the Zion Canyon is another made from a photo of Checkerboard Mesa. It looks really great as an accent on it to see what I mean.

It is next to impossible to see any of the source photograph in this design, so you'll just have to trust me when I tell you it is from one of my trips across last one actually. It is a black & white infrared shot taken at Zion National Park, in the vicinity of Checkerboard Mesa. It'd be peachy if you liked it and clicked on it to buy a copy for yourself or a swell gift for someone you like.

The Post formerly known as Untitled.

This is from a photo taken at Monticello of a cemetery gate with a very nice spiderweb on it. I know, super-creepy. If you like it (a lot) and want to buy it, click on it. Thanks.

Untitled...or Marigold Mandala...whichever.

I have come to learn that these spinny, kaleidoscope-y things are mandalas (or at least in the style of).  I have made a bunch because they are fun and (relatively)easy. So get ready to see a bunch of them. This one is made from a photo I took of a marigold (I think). Also...if you really like the any of the designs you see, you can now click directly on the image and be taken to our Society6 page where you can buy them (and by clicking on the linked image, we'll get a few extra $$'s should you buy something)

Eye don't feel like having a title.

The "source material" for this may have been was posted before..I can't remember. I'm not going to tell you what it is, see if you can figure it out.

You can call me flower (if you dare)

I snapped a pic of a foxglove (weird looking flower...but not THAT weird) and turned it into weirder looking flower.

A bunch of swirly blue lines.

Here is one of my "out of thin air" first post here that is not either a photograph or made from a photograph. I like playing with the "wave" and "liquefy" filters in Photoshop. Once you get the hang of them, they are a lot of fun and give you a pretty big bang for the buck.

Different beans.

It might be hard to see, but these are sacks upon sacks upon pallets of coffee beans.

More of the same different.

Again...I may or may not have posted the source material for this. If you must know, it is a bamboo forest.

And now for something completely different...(besides the title)

...well maybe not COMPLETELY.
I think, but I'm not sure, and I am FAR too lazy to check, that I may have posted the original version of this image. Of course, this is the staircase inside the Currituck lighthouse. So what is COMPLETELY different is that I have begun to transmogrify a selected few of my photographs into even more abstract artsy-fartsy things. SO, for the next several posts, I'll be posting that stuff. And maybe, if you are really nice, I'll post some original artwork I made from scratch. If you can't stand waiting, there should be one of those annoying banner-like ads on the right...near the bottom. That will take you to a Society6 shop that features all of my current work (that I have posted there...not everything from this blog is there and vice-versa).
