DRIED

Thea knows I'm partial to dried flowers, so she left these tulips on the office window sill. I made an almost found still life. I say almost, because I moved them slightly to include the dark space at the top.

 

JUICE

Thea was making her famous tortilla soup. Over her shoulder I saw this still life. Sorry, no picture of the soup. We ate it!

 

MEXICAN STILL LIFE, DAY LILIES

This candid, or found, as opposed to formal, still life is from the Mercado San Juan de Pugibet, scene of several of my interior street photos.

From Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico, hasta mañana.

 

CHILD OF THE CHARREADA

Panasonic Lumix DMC – FZ30 / ACDSee Pro 6

Once again, a dive back into the archives of When a Painter Snaps:

I sometimes think the best part of my photographing rodeos, Charreadas (Mexican rodeos), and Jineteadas (Argentinian rodeos), and other horse events, is the children. There's something charming, beautiful and inherently wholesome about these children of the equine world.

This young lady rides in the opening ceremony with her big sister who is about to perform in Escaramusa, the side-saddle, all girl precision drill team.

Hasta mañana.

 

CONCENTRATION

CONCENTRATION / iPhone 6+ / Snapseed

Lost in thought. Observed, for an instant, from two sides. Indefinitely from one.

Even when taking a break from street shooting, I like shooting street. Coffee time in Mexico City, and I just could not stop.

More researching and organizing again today. Getting publishing figured out. I think.

Hasta mañana.

SKULL OF A YOUNG HORSE

SKULL OF A YOUNG HORSE / PhotoForge2 / iPhone 4s / 100 Cameras in One / Photo Toaster

Here's one from the archives. Having computer problems tonight, so this will be a short message.

Hasta Mañana

 

TAOS EVENING

TAOS EVENING / iPhoto 6+ / Snapseed / Front View

We were coming out of an opening at our dear friend Lanna Smith's gallery, The Ranch at Taos, recently, when a man crossed the street in front of us and mounted his bike. When his foot hit the brake, that red glow lighting up the adobe wall behind him caused me to grab my iPhone from my pocket and capture this quick shot just before he roared off into the night.

I especially like the red, yellow and blue primary colors in this nocturnal image.

Quite a contrast from yesterday's laundry room window. It's a bit grainy, but in the words of Chase Jarvis, “The best camera is the camera you have with you”. And that would always be my iPhone.

Hasta mañana
