It seems like I am all over the place in images presented in this journal…..a nude, a flower, a pilot, a chicken. They have one thing in common. They are the pages turned in my photographic adventure. Something in common might be they are all an attempt to express a moment, or transcend that moment. There is something ‘behind’ every thing that is consciously seen, and maybe the quest in my work, is the attempt to express that mystery.
This image is of a neighbor’s proud free range chicken. It was photographed with a Salyut-C Hasselblad look-alike, Vega 120mm f2.8 lens, and Macophot 100 speed film. The Vega is my favorite lens on this camera.
One of the reasons I started this blog was the opportunity to show images I have made or are making that may never be part of my fine art photography website. In the lee of the recent Valentine’s Day celebration, I thought this rose image appropriate.
I titled it Rose Spider, tho I’m sure there isn’t such a spider in existence, except for maybe this one day. The image was made years ago with my trusty Canon F-1, and 50mm f3.5 macro lens. Remember Kodachrome film?
