This polished study in chrome is of a friend's 1939 Chevy. The big old sedan was Terry's pride and joy till he sold it recently. The photograph was taken during magic light; those moments just after the sun goes down when there's an even, shadowless light. I love the graphic quality of this shot.

It was a blustery spring evening just before an unseen sun dipped below the western horizon. This forlorn dwelling looked past the Rio Grande and north to southern Colorado. Not far away, maybe half a mile, stood Lama Foundation one of the original hippy communes that were built in northern New Mexico the mid 1960s.

Unbelievably this is a natural light photograph taken in mid-afternoon beside the historic meeting house in Eaton, New Hampshire. The plant was very close to the meeting house wall and somewhat protected from the raking sun. I underexposed substantially so the background faded to black as though I had shot against black seamless with a single snooted keylight on the buds.

In late spring I photographed in a sprawling hacienda in the village of Bernalillo, New Mexico. This shot was taken in the enclosed courtyard with natural overhead light filtered through a scrim to soften the effect. The image has been toned to reflect the setting, the sun and the model in repose.

As I was waiting for the The Cache Gallery in Fort Collins to open and not wanting to leave the immediate area I challenged myself to find a worthy subject for inclusion in my Found Art Series. Quick as a blink I was taken by the remarkable elegance of the gas meter and pipes on the adjacent building. Voila!
