Abstract Los Angeles is an on-going photography project of wandering about this metropolis, pointing my lens at random things I see, and clicking the shutter. Today’s installment is about graffiti, be it found in the hills above Pasadena, or on the railings near the 101 freeway.

Seven Photographs: Water Fountain Caught in Mid-Flow

Continue reading Seven Photographs:  Water Fountain Caught in Mid-Flow

In the center of Pasadena is a short man-made river, all hard angles and fake animals. In this river are a few fountains. This is what water looks like when frozen at one one-thousand-six-hundreds of a second (1/1600).

Abstract Los Angeles: Fences

Continue reading Abstract Los Angeles:  Fences

Abstract Los Angeles is an ongoing collection of photographs as I wander about this sprawling metropolis. Today’s installment is all about fences, because fences always remind me of The Far Side cartoon where the surburban father explains to his fence surrounded son that the bird song is territorial marking common to lower animals. Fences always […]

Abstract Los Angeles is an on-going collection of photographs taken as I wander about this sprawling metropolis. Today’s installment is all about created faces; sometimes with spray paint, sometimes with fur, or plaster, or maybe even metal.

London Abstract Photographs: Signs in the Underground [Fragment 5]

Continue reading London Abstract Photographs:  Signs in the Underground [Fragment 5]

Three signs, from the London Underground, in an effort to keep us, the general public, safe. ‘Take Care After Drinking Alcohol’ says the sign, which I found beautiful, after drinking some alcohol and attempting to look sober on the platform. The lilting angle of the photographs is not the world turning on its axis, but […]

In December of 2009 I spent six days wandering about London, just looking around with my camera. Look up is spray painted in the corner of a brick wall, for no reason what-so-ever. All that was up was the sky, and maybe some sun. Must be one of those intellectual statements about seeing things differently. […]

In December of 2009 I spent six days wandering about London, just looking around with my camera. Memorial for the ‘Glorious Dead’ standing in the middle of Parliament Street, between Trafalgar Square and Houses of Parliament, London England.

In December of 2009 I spent six days wandering about London, just looking with my camera. In the center of London, next to the theatres, is Leicester Square. The square was filled with carnival games impossible to win, cars spinning in puke circles, and the statues stood quietly looking on, displaying no emotion. At the […]

Continue reading San Francisco Abstract:  Extra 2

At intermittent times, when visiting and wandering about the city of San Francisco, little pieces of the city show themselves to my lens. Today is all about the pieces that don’t fit into a neat category. A bicycle with bumper sticker ‘Tax the Rich’ attached to a parking meter, south of Market, San Francisco. ‘Jews […]

At intermittent times, when visiting and wandering about the city of San Francisco, little pieces of the city show themselves to my lens. Today is all about the pieces that don’t fit into a neat category. Abandonded military steel door set in concrete for a past war that never arrived. Near Fort Mason on the […]

San Francisco Abstract: Look Down 2

Continue reading San Francisco Abstract:  Look Down 2

At intermittent times, when visiting and wandering about the city of San Francisco, little pieces of the city show themselves to my lens. For some reason San Francisco is a haven for sidewalk signs, they abound in the city, sometimes with a stencil and spray paint, sometimes with chalk. It’s always time for pie! Chalked […]
