Moss

I know most people think moss is gross, and I totally get it, but I happen to think it’s pretty interesting. I love all the details! I also love the growth patterns and colors. I actually have quite a collection of moss photos I’ve accumulated over the years. Here are some of my most recent moss images taken at a park near my house.

Nature Walk: The First Days Of Autumn

Thank God for Autumn! I’m getting out more, seriously enjoying the weather and shooting more often. As the fall season has started to fully transition I’ve taken advantage by hitting the streets in search of my favorite targets: colors, textures and details. This is a daily process so I will continue to update my progression over time, but below is small collection of my findings so far. I hope you enjoy!

Texture Art

The intricate lines and curves of an old tree’s bark. I absolutely love the character present in the fine details of different textures. Beauty is all around us, especially in nature. It feels wonderful to go out and let it inspire you!

Random Park Discoveries

Various findings around the park during my last solo outing. I do believe that all of these were shot in color but, I find that using black & white here to be much more interesting.

Steam Heat

A few black and white images after a quick downpour during my solo nature outing.

The area started out dry, scorching hot and in great need of rain. The rain clouds quickly rushed in and poured over the entire park. In true Georgia weather fashion, the rain subsided and the heat took over once again evaporating all signs of water. You could actually see the rain water transform into steam against the hot rocky ground! In a few moments everything was back to normal but, this time with a a slight catch. The after effects of the rain produced a very welcomed cool breeze. The breeze lasted for the remainder of my trip, and I enjoyed every second of it! More to come soon…

Solo Nature Walk

This past Saturday I spent almost 8 hours walking around by myself in the intense summer heat. I hadn’t been out to shoot in a while and I really needed to get out and do something to get my creativity flowing again. Despite the heat I started to have lots of fun. So much so that I totally forgot all about the weather and started to focus more on capturing images. I decided to let the colors of the park inspire me. Before I knew it I looked down at my phone and realized just how long I had actually been out. I was really shocked but, I guess when you’re truly enjoying yourself time is of little importance?

Apart from the photographic aspect of being outside on such massive terrain, this trip also provided me with an opportunity to be at peace mentally as well as be active physically. I love it when using my camera can become therapeutic. It can relax my mind, ease my tension and rejuvenate my spirit. It’s such a wonderful feeling when you can pick up your camera, discover an interesting location and just shoot uninterrupted at your own pace. No schedules, no time constraints, no people, no complaining…just you, your gear and the beauty of nature. I told myself that I would try to get out to more natural locations such as this one more often and try to reconnect with nature. I love finding the layers of hidden details within wooded areas such as this one. I have lots of photos from this outing that I hope to share over the coming weeks.

Here are just a few samples I worked on immediately after arriving back home. For anyone wondering, these are roughly straight out of the camera. The only adjustments I made were very minor brightness tweaks and slight shadow lifting.

Colorized

Although I love black and white images, and I’ve been shooting them more and more lately, I’ve always been known for images full of bright, bold colors. Here are just a few shots of various color patterns from my most recents travels.

January & February Adventures

Good evening! It’s been a while since I’ve added anything new but, that’s because I’ve been quite busy lately. Right now I’d like to share just a few random images from some of my outings during the end of last month up until recently. Included is everything from, the out of the ordinary snowstorm that hit Georgia, to an older man who looks like a motorcycle rider preparing to surf in the cold river, to my photo excursion with my Aunt Robin, my son sleeping, and my neighbor walking her dogs. I have lots of new pictures that I’ve been working on very hard to share with everyone. I hope to have them up soon. Until then, I hope you enjoy!
