I work a lot in the Bay Area. The Golden Gate Bridge still fascinates me. I love the way the weather changes around it constantly. If you look away for a minute it can go from full view in sun to disappearing into the fog. This day was one of those. Minutes later after this shot you could see both towers to the top. Shot in October 2012.
I haven’t posted for a while because I have been traveling, shooting for a solid three weeks with a few more travel weeks ahead of me. For now, here is a shot taken by Noelle Gaberman of me chasing trucks and dodging front loader tractors in a quarry for a shoot. Thanks Noelle.
Traveling with family. I have driven by this since I was a small child and always wanted to stop. Today we did.
I was hired to shoot landscapes in the San Francisco area. When you are hired to shoot images of locations that have been photographed for so many years, by so many people it can be difficult to have a fresh angle. Sometimes the angle you want requires some climbing. So I climbed to the roof of an office building with camera and lenses in hand. This was shot on 120 Fuji Velvia film with a 50mm lens on my trusty Hasselblad 500cm.
Shot at our hotel in Palm Springs, California.
Spent some time in Palm Springs over the Holidays at a great retro motel. My son and I found the Shuffleboard court. It was worn and well used and that made it that much better. I love shuffleboard. My son loves shuffleboard. As my wife would say, “it’s so civilized.” Nothing “extreme”, “electronic” or fast paced about it. That’s the point! It’s Monday, have a simple and enjoyable week and don’t turn on the news!
This shot was taken back in 1990 when I was in Czechoslovakia. Crowded streets of Bratislava. I really need to dive into my archives because when I come across these types of images they motivate me for my new work. How about you? What motivates your creativity?
