    Haha my style does tend to venture into the morbid/strange every now and then. Maybe I can find something more lighthearted...

    I'm uncomfortable calling anything I do art, but I like this one.

    I hope that most of my photos have some 'artistic' merit....:)

    but here is one from the other day stuck inside a car on a wet and stormy day in Los Angeles

    and just to show how grey the weather was.... this shot is in colour!!

    Play time with the camera.

    I was walking down the street in Wilmington, when I saw this store front and had to take the picture.

    <object width="700" height="546"><param name="movie" value="http://www.photoshelter.com/swf/imgWidget.swf"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="FlashVars" value="i=I0000i.3vZSaBqms&b=1"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.photoshelter.com/swf/imgWidget.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="true" FlashVars="i=I0000i.3vZSaBqms&b=1" allowfullscreen="true" width="700" height="546"></embed></object>

    <object width="526" height="720"><param name="movie" value="http://www.photoshelter.com/swf/imgWidget.swf"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="FlashVars" value="i=I00001TnPTVqIHRE&b=1"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.photoshelter.com/swf/imgWidget.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="true" FlashVars="i=I00001TnPTVqIHRE&b=1" allowfullscreen="true" width="526" height="720"></embed></object>

    Later I was seated on a bench, eating a cup of ice cream when these joggers ran by. I took the shot, not knowing what I would do with it. Well as a straight shot is wasn’t that much, but then I used my Nik Filters and solarized the shot. I liked it. Same for the other two above. The floating head is really just a manikin head sitting on the floor of the store front. I passed it by, then the thought came I really needed to take it as it was interesting to look at, so I went back and took the shot. I never thought about how it would look solarized. Now I am looking over a lot of my old work and seeing what might work using the same set of filters.

    <object width="700" height="546"><param name="movie" value="http://www.photoshelter.com/swf/imgWidget.swf"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="FlashVars" value="i=I0000vIPHVK_w8PY&b=1"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.photoshelter.com/swf/imgWidget.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="true" FlashVars="i=I0000vIPHVK_w8PY&b=1" allowfullscreen="true" width="700" height="546"></embed></object>
