US HWY 285

As you can see I am taking a short break from my Greek travel posts, to create a post from my morning drive. Usually I get up before sunrise, kids are still sleeping, and for an hour or two I can practice some photography . This morning I headed south on HWY 285. This route takes you immediately away from […]

The three islands of Kos (Greece I)

Before covid, when travel was still a low risk proposition, I spent a summer touring some of the Greek islands with my boys. We started in Kos and continued by ferry to other destinations. I was interested how much of the Greece, which I came to know as a child, was still out there and could it still be found. […]

Eldorado in Color

Eldorado, a small community, south of Santa Fe was my home for the past 2 years. So it is about time that I put together a small collection celebrating its colors. Here I decided to focus on its pueblo revival style architecture. The neighborhood is quiet to be sure and with Covid the sense of silence and emptiness grew even […]

Black and White rocks

This post is a series of black and white images of boulders and rocks only. Clearly black and white is the obvious choice and with it texture becomes the dominant theme. Texture means detail and detail requires large size to be appreciated, which explains why I opted for large images even though I run the risk of making all flaws […]

The photography style is inspired by the Japanese photo magazine “Provoke” (プロヴォーク) from the late 1960s. I suppose “Provoke” intended to use style in support of a […]

Most industries have been pushed out of the city. In my time the meat packers were expelled to make place for gentrification just west of the loop. I am sure some developers pushed […]

Chicago Landmarks in BW

Architecture is one of the most important legacies of Chicago. Walking through town you are treated to a history tour or you can just book a tour with the Chicago Architectual Society. Here are some samples of images I took in my almost ten years in Chicago. But don’t be mistaken, this is the glossy side of Chicago and we […]

Photographing color

Some preliminary thoughts on how to capture color or by extension light rather than using color to enhance an image. Many great photographers taught us how color can be put to good use in photography, too many to list them all right here. Far fewer photographers go out to capture light, or color for their own sake. This is hardly […]

Seeing and Cubism

(Making a case for photo cubism aka joiners) Many times I witnessed photographers vehemently objecting to images like David Hockney’s famous “Pearlblossom HWY”, California Just to show how far such objections go, recently a portrait photography group on FB, a group with many professional photographers contributing, took down this portrait with no explanation offered. Tobias, Chicago 2013 It just so […]
