I’M NOT A FAMOUS FOOD PHOTOGRAPHER BECAUSE…

I'M NOT A FAMOUS FOOD PHOTOGRAPHER BECAUSE…

iPhone 6s Plus / Snapseed

I'm too slow. Or should I say I'm too fast. Either way, I will have to eat more slowly or shoot more quickly, or I won't ever be much of a food photographer at all.

Speaking of slow, if I don't get a book announcement up on this blog by tomorrow, I'm going to go out and jump off the curb!

Hasta mañana, I hope.

 

TORN BUILDING

TORN BUILDING / iPhone 6 Plus / Snapseed / PhotoForge 2

I shot this from the taxi at the corner of Calle Cedro and Paseo de la Reforma, on last April Fool's Day, on my way to the American Express office in Mexico City to book a flight. That's all the caption you get. Take a moment, though, look it over, and see what story the photo tells you. What are you seeing? What all are you seeing? What might it all mean?

As you can see, I'm having a hard time getting away from PhotoForge 2. One heck of an app. Too bad Yahoo killed it.

Sorry, but the book news will have to wait until tomorrow, or even until after the weekend. We'll see. This is a busy time for us, and I'll bet it is for you, too.

Hasta mañana.

 

SOME STILL PREFER PRINT

SOME STILL PREFER PRINT / iPhone 6 Plus / Snapseed

Taking Street Photography into the airport in Mexico City, last April.

I used to like waiting rooms because they were a chance to catch up on some magazine reading. Not so much these days. I'm usually too busy with my iPhone; either finger sketching or photographing the people around me. I'm not sure which I prefer. I enjoy both, depending on the subject mainly.

When there is an interesting story, likely to change soon, and there is not enough time to draw, I will use the camera.

If there's not much going on, just interesting faces or gestures, I like to sketch.

Either way one of my favorite pastimes, people watching, is greatly enhanced. As are my memories of a time or place. Besides, I get to share my what I've seen with you.

I hope to have some news tomorrow regarding my books.

Hasta mañana.

 

MUD AND STEEL

MUD AND STEEL / iPhone 6 Plus / Snapseed

Street photography? Still life? Travel? I'm not quite sure what to call this photographic study in composition, color and contrast. I like the story it tells, a story of the humble, enduring, resistant adobe pueblo of Taos, and the modern, technologically advanced bicycle.

No word from Blurb, yet, regarding my missing Kachina books. Maybe tomorrow. I made some good progress today on my other book projects, though, and got some good painting time in, as well.

Hasta mañana.
