Liquid can bend and twist into all kinds of shapes that you can capture if you're fast enough. When light reflects off of it, whether white light or colored, the results can stimulate the imagination. That is what "Liquid Art" is to me.
Raindrops, dewdrops, mists ... they cling to everything.
Flowers, flowers everywhere. They come in every shape and size. If you channel all your patience, you will find a surprise inside.
For all those plants that aren't flowers: the lichens, the fungi, the leaves, the mosses, the grasses, etc.; and let's not forget about buds (including flower buds - they aren't flowers yet after all). They deserve a place to call their own as they are no less beautiful than those plants that flower.
Whether six legs or eight (or more), these creatures crawl and/or fly. They come in all of the colors of the rainbow and are fascinating to watch as they go about their business in a world that we do not often get to see. The things that they create are amazing as well.
These life-giving, oxygen-supplying lifeforms sometimes make me wish I had the power to heal them when they are injured by the insensitivity of mankind. Tall and majestic, short and stumpy, long and willowy. Feel their energy.
Buildings, fences, bridges, roads; anything man-made that can be considered a structure. Old or new, abstract or simple. What humans can create can sometimes be considered awe-inspiring.
Beautiful on land, gorgeous by the sea, or combine them both and imagine what will be. These images cover what I believe landscapes and waterscapes encompass: wide shots of the world that surrounds us. Considering I am usually looking at the "macro world", this is as grandiose as I can get.
Anything alive (except microscopic organisms, insects, birds, or humans) belongs here. Be prepared for a myriad of creatures to feast upon.
Still while perched, sitting or standing, walking or flying. Their colors are vibrant which makes them easy to see ... unless you're looking at a camouflaged female. Their actions can be unpredictable which makes them difficult to capture. Patience is key.
Typically, the photos shared in this section will be black and white or sepia in tone. However, occasionally, other monochromatic images may appear (blue tone, green tone, red tone, orange tone, etc.). These photos reveal the contrast between dark and light that can set a mood.
The sun, the moon, the clouds, the stars. What resides above our heads or along the horizon reminds us that we are but tiny creatures in a much bigger universe.
Whether still or in motion, the things that get us from place to place come in many forms. So whether you like the deceptive calm of the water, the sureness of the road, or the wind of the sky, it's possible that you may find it represented here.
Seeing the world in different ways is kind of my "thing" with photography. So instead of looking at something from a typical point of view, sometimes I like to look at what a scene portrays to the world with either its mirror or its shadow.
Whether it's streaks of white or colored light making shapes and/or designs, or light is being used to illuminate, light paining is quite the creative art.
Non-living, posed. A snapshot into everyday things.
