    A really sexy and provocative shot. She is offset with the trio of fluorescent lights, seemingly floating in mid-air, like electric clouds. This is very cool.

    Thanks for the comments. Yes, the past couple of months have really been tough. But everything is fine now.

    Some random shots from the past few months. Due to illness (the flu), and other things, I have not been out shooting for a while. Everything seems back to normal now, so better days are ahead....

    Editor's note: A wonderful image full of abstract stuff that forces you to stop and have a closer look. Seen here.

    Beautiful street portrait, Robert. The soft, subdued colors from the Velvia film really makes this shot sing. Great stuff.

    Thanks, Robert and Noct, for the comments. Noct, a book has been in the works, off and on, for several years. I have had opportunities in the past to publish a book but always had conflicts with the publishing houses over control of content, etc. I am currently exploring the option of self-publishing.

    Thanks for the comments, Ann. I have actually printed two of the photos and they do print up really well. A couple of years ago, some photographer friends and I worked on running a joint exhibition but it fell through. We'll see how this project progresses....

    Cellophane City

    From a new project that has been several years in the making and one in which I finally decided to pursue with more intensity. The title comes from a song of the same name by Steve Forbert. Being shot mostly in early morning light or late in the evening heading into night time, the purpose of the project is to try and portray a certain type of isolationism individuals may experience while being in a big city. Alone in a sea of millions is a term that may describe the intent of this project. As with most projects I shoot, I usually start out with a rough idea of what I want to accomplish, and as time goes by, I usually find that the project takes a shape and form vastly different from my original concept. Life has a way of taking over our best intentions. In other words, and to quote the Grateful Dead- What a long, strange trip it's been....

    What's in your camera bag?

    If I am just doing some street shooting, I carry a small Domke bag with a Nikon Df with a 50mm 1.8 , 28mm 2.8, and an 85mm 1.8. Throw in a little pouch with batteries and SD cards, a small notebook, and a few other odds and ends, and that is it. If I am shooting some type of PJ event, I carry a little bit bigger Domke bag with two camera bodies, the lenses mentioned above plus two zooms- a 28-85 and a 70-210. I also carry a notepad, a small Zoom voice recorder, a small cotton hand-towel, and various other small items.

    Fons, so far, I have acquired 3 prime lenses and a couple of zooms. The primes are a 50mm 1.8, a 28mm 2.8, and an 85mm 1.8. The zooms are a couple of older AF lenses from the 90's- a 28-85 and a 70-210. Both of the zooms are slow lenses but I got them to mainly shoot PJ events outdoors, plus they were very inexpensive. I also acquired a mint condition D200 as a back-up or to use when shooting events. I shoot two cameras for events usually using the zooms. The primes and the Df are what I shoot with mostly for my personal work.
