    Thanks for the shout-out in that photo thread. To show my gratitude: a photo bomb!

    Like others, I haven't been around here much. But I do miss it, and I do peek back from time to time. More so lately.

    Here are some highlights of some stuff I've been doing with the camera(s). Hope you enjoy the show.

    Beautiful work as usual. Love the Mono lake shots.

    Love the story of the last shot. How long was your exposure on that one?

    Truly gorgeous! How much post-production is involved? Or is it just strategic exposure/lighting?

    I'm blown away every time I see your work. You have that rare eye that few possess. I find landscape photography difficult to say the least. You, not so much.

    You pictures are wonderful! I always want to visit the places that you take pictures, they seem to tell a story that tweaks my interest to find out more.

    Thanks much.

    LANCASTER—This is across the street from the Kill Bill church. One of those instances where it's good to remember to turn around every once in a while, especially when you're heavily focused on a particular subject. I've always liked that i was able to capture the transition from streetscape to starry sky with one exposure ... it looked pretty much like this on my camera's LCD.

    Thanks a lot, BB. EXIF data shows it was just about 30 minutes, give or take a few seconds. That's surprising ... figured there'd by more noise. I must have spent a lot of time cleaning it up. LOL.


    QUOTE=Christine
    Truly gorgeous! How much post-production is involved? Or is it just strategic exposure/lighting?

    Thanks so much, Christine. Honestly, most of it is strategic, with a healthy dose of luck. Checking sunrise/sunset times, moon position for the night shots, waiting out storms and thick clouds and hoping for a flash of sunlight, etc. In fact, the most satisfying shots to me are the ones that are the result of careful planning and forethought, and that's something I've definitely tried to work on over the years. Some of the Mono Lake stuff was a year in the making. So for the most part it's just a few minutes of levels and saturation adjustments, maybe straightening and on rare occasions cropping (I don't believe I cropped any of the shots I posted here). On a few shots, I spent a significant amount of time in post blending multiple exposures to fix blown-out highlights or shadows. The one from City Hall is a good example, as is the second L.A. River bridge shot, as are any shots with stars in the sky (except the one blackfrancois mentioned).

    Ah. Kansas...
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    I bet every time you look at that last photo your heartbeat rises just a little as you remember the howl of the wolves. As a photographer, THAT's what I love most about photography. How it takes you back to the time when you captured the shot and revives, if only for a little bit, all the senses and feelings you experienced at that very moment.

    Josh, I really like the Lancaster series. Check out the paintings by a friend of mine (now passed) Steve Criqui's paintings. He had found a theme and ran with it. Reminds me of your Lancaster shots

    You know what you're looking for and it's obvious that sooner or later you'll capture it perfectly. Your work is a study. Close as I can describe, "a study."

    Love every bit of it.

    p.s. your son must be in college by now. LOL

    Sweet! Thanks.
    Roebuck, You along with MB1 and LenJ were the folks that inspired me to get back into photography after about a 20 year layoff. I'd always loved Galen Rowell's work and your stuff reminds me of it with an urban twist. Although landscapes are what I 'wanted' to do I've found I'm middle of the road at best. Oddly enough I hated portrait stuff back then but that's become my strength and passion. I've got a street portrait show at one of the largest galleries around here in Dec.

    You and the others got me back into one of my lifelong hobbies. Thanks for the inspiration and the big dent in my wallet.

    I joined a hip hop group in prison. Got kicked out. Joined a cult. Realized death was better and killed myself.

    For some shots. Honestly, if it's a good shot, it will take me back to that moment that I took it and how I felt after seeing it.

    I see you haven't lost your touch. Damn, man. What can I say, but thanks. Humbled.

    PS kid pic attached. He's gotten much more difficult to shoot, what with wandering eyes, fake smiles and perpetual motion. For this he was reenacting Sandy from Grease, sitting on the bank of the LA River, since he was actually sitting on the bank of the LA River and that's his favorite movie.

    LOL. I excel at spending others' money. I think at its height, the Lounge had a bunch of great and enthusiastic photographers and I'd like to think we all inspired each other. I'm sure I took more than I gave.

    Steve was a friend / class mate of mine. Both of us musician / painters. At the end of college he went and pursued art and I went music. He was a jewel of a person as well. He was living on borrowed time, certainly made the most of it.
