That sculpture is interesting...the angst of a wild mustang being roped in.....reminds me of the song, 'Don't Fence Me In'.
ok - I say this every time - how much I love a series (but) I looooove this series. It's all about "what" you choose to bring to our attention and what you didn't (and in a looped way - do). The tiny bird on a pointed leaf in focus - the chain link fence out of focus (brilliant) the "in and out" play in the final two. And the lightest bit of grain work. It's this kind of understanding, these purposely subtle choices, your smarts, that puts you a step ahead of the pack.
I like them all! The first photo is totally completed by the little bird! The second one looks like the kind of thing you can only find in the desert!
These moments of your visual artistry are too few and far between. You must know you are loved for your beautiful mind.
These are really noir(ish?). They feel like a 30s or 40s dark movie--Cape Fear, maybe. I think I like the top two best, but I agree with PA about your having so much going on in all 4--such interesting features, such skill. If you put the gun to my head, I'd be another vote for the bird (a mockingbird?), but that horse is a ghastly, powerful vision. Thank you, I guess. Wonder how I'll sleep tonight.
Where was the horse? It looks like an old carousel horse. Was it being moved? Anyway, that photo is a great one. Unusual, and lots of ideas spring just from viewing the photo.
These are super cool shots! Love how you composed every one of them. And what gorgeous Joshua's Tree!
Beautiful, poetic images! I love the look of the subtle chain link pattern in front of the horse and the film grain. Good stuff!
You do... you do... you do work magic... visual miracles...For us out here in the desert, it is like seeing a shimmering oasis, mirage or not, we can only wonder at the beauty of it...
Beautiful declinations of black and white...and a very good idea to use it sometimes..It's immediately an other world ...more soft .I appreciate to much these poetic given moments..like subtle evanescent dreams..Send you all my best thoughts..:)
I have yet to learn much more ..Today I just discovered your blog and could not stop scrolling down your posts, looking at your fantastic photographs!What a great discovery!Greetings from Greece ...
these are so beautiful and delicate - it is very difficult to pull-off such low contrast without without the impression of monotony, but you've managed perfectly, the grey hues here are so fine and vibrant, they feel like silk...and that little bird on top of the first cactus just blows me off!
