Green Man Card

The face with vines and flowers protruding from his mouth is known as a Green Man. In this color photograph, the high relief sculpture is an architectural element that is part of a large planter atop a column. I wanted to highlight the sculpture, so I shot with my lens wide open (at its lowest F-stop number) to create a shallow depth of field. The resulting bokeh (out of focus circles of color) on the left side of the frame provide a nice background.

Brighten your mother's day with this beautiful card featuring a color photograph of a green man sculpture. You can easily customize the message for Mother's Day or any other occasion.

Circle With Fire Escape Canvas Bag

Several years ago during what I'm sure was an imaginary period of my life, I lived in a store front along the border of Nob Hill and Chinatown in San Francisco, California. Hypothetically, I often went on walkabout throughout the city, noting any structures I wanted to go back and photograph later.

Descending into Chinatown, the large open circle cut into the foreground concrete wall always stopped me. With just the right angle of view through the circular window, the zigzag of the fire escape stairs of the next building became visible. A collection of mesmerizing geometry contained within and surrounding the circle: lines, angles, squares, rectangles, and triangles.

Sunlight illuminates the background building, the square panes of its rectangular windows a mix of light and dark reflections. The shadowed foreground wall draws your eye through to the details.
Tote bag with black handle featuring a cool black and white photograph of a fire escape through a circular opening in San Francisco, California. Bags available in several styles and sizes.

River Water Ripples iPad skin

River water rushes over indiscernible rocks creating chaotic ripples and patterns of reflected light in this black and white photograph. The oblong and curving white lines flow around dark obscured rocks beneath the surface to create an abstract image reminiscent of marble or a vast complex array of cell membranes. The photo was taken at a river in the vicinity of Seattle, Washington.

For more serene light patterns on water ripples, take a look at After Hockney - Black and White.

Bokeh in Spring iPhone 4/4S skin

Celebrate Earth Day and protect your iPhone 4/4s with this cool skin featuring an abstract photograph of trees and sky. 

A lovely mix of light to dark green overlapping translucent circles, with some yellow, yellow-green and light blue circles for accents. "Bokeh" is a Japanese word which describes a pleasing pattern in the out-of-focus areas of a photograph. The dots are referred to as "circles of confusion" in photography.

I took this photo on a sunny spring day looking up through a leafy canopy.

Skins also available for other phones and devices.

Western Auto Half Cylinder Building Card

Nine days into a cross country road trip, I stopped in Kansas City, Missouri to see Union Station. It was pouring when I arrived, but when the rain eased up later on, I ventured out to photograph exteriors. The humidity was intense, but I wanted to see a bit more of Kansas City. The Link and Downtown Kansas City are other images I made during that excursion.

Ascending the parking exit ramp, I beheld an excellent semi-cylindrical structure and pulled over to shoot it from my car window. The Western Auto sign atop the building is encircled by an arrow. Since the sign is not parallel to the flat side of the brick edifice, it draws attention to the building's curved design.

The exit ramp's decorative concrete railing angles across the foreground beginning in the lower left corner of the frame. Aside from a few much shorter buildings to the left of the Western Auto building, the background is sky with a few clouds.


Birthday card featuring a cool black and white photograph of the Western Auto half cylinder-shaped building in Kansas City, Missouri. Easily customize the greeting for any occasion!
