Sometimes you need a little soul…

I spent a couple hours this week walking around a local state park, Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park, rehabbing an injured knee and shooting the Lensbaby Sol45 lens.

 

Nashville City Cemetery…

I spent a little time shooting downtown today and stopped in to the Nashville City Cemetery to shoot a little more before heading home. The cemetery is such a wonderful place to shoot and I enjoy it every time I go there.

Remains of the Night…

Last October while visiting New Orleans, I took an early Sunday morning stroll down Bourbon Street. The remains from the previous night’s revelry was both astonishing and intriguing. I imagines myself as a forensic anthropologist trying to put together the story of the past inhabitants. Each plastic grenade cup, each oyster shell, and each overflowing trash can have a story waiting to be retold…

Tobacco Field…

While driving the back roads of TN on my way to another shoot, I came across a field of tobacco plants. If you have never seen a tobacco plant, you don’t know what you are missing. The leaves are large and grand, the colors and tones are so pleasing to look at.

Here are a few of the images I shot there…

Dark Grasses…

While scouting a location for another shoot, I took the opportunity to shoot some images for myself. I really liked a large grass plant and spent a good 30-45 minutes capturing images. Here are some of my favorite…

New Blog and Instagram Account…

I have started a new photo blog and Instagram account for images I capture of rural Tennessee scenes.  I like to drive the back roads and see what I can find and this will be where I share the images.

The blog is: Rural TN Photos and the Instagram account is Rural_TN_Photos.  I would love for you to follow my new blog and Instagram account.

I have only posted a few images, but I plan to post regularly in that account. Here are a few.

Two Prints off to Exhibitions…New York and Athens!

Last week was a good week in terms of my fine art photography. Two of my images were accepted for shows, one in New York and the other in Athens, Greece.

I heard from Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece that one of my images was accepted for their upcoming exhibition “Monochrome”. The chosen image was one of my favorite images from last year.  It was shot in New Orleans and was my homage to Robert Frank’s iconic capture of the New Orleans streetcar and the riders within. Here is my image:

The New Americans

 

On Saturday, I awoke to an email from the New York Center for Photographic Art letting me know that one of my images was accepted for their exhibit, “One”, and it was awarded First Place.  The exhibition was jurored by Aline Smithson, an excellent photographer and founder of the Lenscratch Blog.

The image is of the Snodgrass Building in Nashville.  For some reason, one of the windows was different from the others, and the contrast stood out to me so I captured it.

The New York exhibit will run from April 3 – 14, 2018 at the JADITE GALLERY in the exciting Hell’s Kitchen area in Manhattan. My New York friends, try to stop by and check out the exhibition.
