Still Life with no Woodpecker

One of the loneliest piles of garbage I’ve ever seen… I had to get a photo once I noticed the hawk in the background.

Hard to believe that’s mostly stars instead of noise, right? Canon 5D3, Sigma 8mm lens, 72-seconds at f/3.5Flat Rock Butte is in the Umatilla Nat’l Forest. We did not pack for those temps, unfortunately. Freezing bloody cold for June 22nd, and only furthers my respect for this amazing area.That’s the glow from the campfire near the top of the frame.

2014 North Coast Seed Building Open House.
This is a photo I took of my long-time bud PK, doing what he does best. Digital photo turned oil painting.
 Let me paint your portrait with this camera

Another great open house at North Coast Seed Building this year. This time I made some portraits for the willing, and summarily turned seventeen of the photos into paintings. Thanks for coming down! The 17 images are in the gallery.

 Solar Decay

This year’s excursion into the arid Eastern Oregon wastelands farmlands was a great success; more images to come. The general effects of Wind and Solar decay on the old homesteads and ghost towns is both haunting and beautiful. The effect in this one image was actually a technical error, but I really enjoy what happened.
