MORE RAILCAR INTERIORS

Glasses  
I have not decided yet if I should print and mat this image. It is part of a series that I took in the kitchen of an old diner car.

BACK TO WORKING ON THE RAILROAD

The View at the Kitchen Sink in the Dining Car

Last Saturday, I conducted a workshop on diesel locomotive operation at the old Samoa Roundhouse. After the class I took some time to explore inside some wonderful "heavy weight" passenger cars. This photograph is a product of my exploration. It looks great as a print, and I wonder if it needs to be rotated 90 degrees clockwise.

UPCOMING ARCATA SHOW

Arcata Dawn Goddess, 2010

I just now reworked this image. It was rejected from the Northwest Eye a few years ago, and I sort of banished it from further interest. I am curious to hear input from others about it - please. I have the original below.

PLAYING WITH EXTENSION TUBES

By adding a 12mm extension tube to my 24-105mm zoom lens, I now have a workable macro lens. This was hand-held (albeit six other shots were blurry).

"If  You Go Into the Woods Tonight, You Better Not Go Alone...

Here is a fun image that I took this evening on my walk in the woods. I hope it stayed put.

This monk has a great smile - how  could I not take his photograph?

ELDER MONK

Elder Monk, Thiksey Monastery, Ladakh, 2008

The photograph of this monk is the only one of the series that is not of young men. It just sort of happened that way while I was selecting the images for this exhibition.

MORE FACES OF LADAKH

Backward Glance, Thiksey, 2008

I lucked into this image. I think the young monk sneaked more than one look during the morning puja. I printed and framed this for the show at Mad River Hospital. I will hang them on Monday.

I am hanging ten or eleven works at Mad River Hospital on Monday. They will exhibit alongside images from photographer Lorraine Miller-Wolf. Some of these images have never before been shown.

On the Lost Coast, May 2013

I seldom create high key imagery, but this one seemed to be made for it.
