dreampainting

This is the original version from a digital photo I took of my acrylic painting of a real dream I had as a child. I used salt and pepper in thinned liquid yellow and violet paint in squirt bottles to simulate dust swirling and painted in white and ochre and burnt sienna and burnt umber.

indyposter

indyposter

I created this Indy 500 poster design using the two given logos and a cd of given photos of many cars to choose from one of which we were to change colors. I took the red car and made it blue after reversing it, shrinking it, and removing the lettering using cloning technique. I also created the flying dust effect (noise). And I gave a whisper image to the asphalt looking texture track. We were told what information to include.

More than the sum of its parts: 2-mistakes-in-one shot + one normal 6×9 makes for a fantastic pano

yup this was done on a 1936 6×9 manual wind rangefinder – it still has a lens that will kick dust in the eyes of any Canon or Nikon.

scanned to the films full resolution, this fine grain will render a 165megapixel image – an just less than the monstrous 6×17 cameras… wallpaper in a box. the stunning thing about the Ikonta is its folding bellows, so it is still the best quality : size / weight ratio of any consumer camera (i have to say "consumer" because i bet the military have something better, but only be a smidgen i’d say.perhaps a 8×10 version of this camera design with finegrain 3200 film if that is even possible?
scanned on an Imacon, this image, unedited renders a 1GB tif file. it take a while to open even on super computers, never mind a white iMac, so i hop you appreciate this one being in the stream 😉 i know i sure do.

the overlapping was due to the film not being advanced far enough to seperate the two frames. the lefthand side was also accidentally exposed twice. (no means on the camera to tell weather or not you’ve already hit the shutter.
the fact the hills line up in the middle is pure luck.

this must be one of my favorite shots – like top 10. and ive KNOW ive got more that 1000, possibly even close to 2000 photos on my hard drive.

Marble Ranch Round Barn Grandview Washington 1987

Marble Ranch Round Barn  Grandview Washington  1987

I have started a project of scanning many old film negatives. This is slow work. I do an image then photoshop all the dust out from 2-4 hours each. I think the images will look better then when I first did them 20 odd years ago. I Don’t know if I will print any. This has been fun to get going on this. I think photography is a great way to time travel to the past. Im thinking of so many fun things I use to do. The photo is only about a 10th of what really happens when making them. I wish I could put all the stories of what happened to make each set I ever did. The stories would be long and funny or crazy. But I will just tell a small amount. Im not so good at writing about things.

Jerry Uelsmann is my most favorite photographer. As I started my collage work I hoped to do images like he did. I found this to be a challenge. I needed to use a lot of photo paper to try things out. I did not have the money that this would take so I slowly stopped trying to do some things like he did. I had a hard time thinking of what I would do that would be my thing in that kinda image. So I did a few not all the good looking. But I still love the images Jerry Uelsmann has. He still has images better then ones from photoshop.

The Marble Ranch Round Barn if in my home town I lived in as a kid. So I had seen it all my life always like to look at it. So I did a photo one day then I was at a river found some cool rocks then as I looked at my images I found that I could put the to in to one image. In photo I was hoping to have a storm of rocks moving in to the sky. This was printed from two negatives on to one paper. I scanned the 8×10 print. I only did resize in photoshop. It has so much dust I did not care to spot it all out sorry for that. I do have three real prints. So this is just to make a record of things I did back in the old days. I did this in 1987 no computer was used to make this.

Ode to Heat

Ode to Heat

From plains that reel to southward, dim,
The road runs by me white and bare;
Up the steep hill it seems to swim
Beyond, and melt into the glare.
Upward half-way, or it may be
Nearer the summit, slowly steals
A hay-cart, moving dustily
With idly clacking wheels.
By his cart’s side the wagoner
Is slouching slowly at his ease,
Half-hidden in the windless blur
Of white dust puffiing to his knees.
This wagon on the height above,
From sky to sky on either hand,
Is the sole thing that seems to move
In all the heat-held land.

Beyond me in the fields the sun
Soaks in the grass and hath his will;
I count the marguerites one by one;
Even the buttercups are still.
On the brook yonder not a breath
Disturbs the spider or the midge.
The water-bugs draw close beneath
The cool gloom of the bridge.

Where the far elm-tree shadows flood
Dark patches in the burning grass,
The cows, each with her peaceful cud,
Lie waiting for the heat to pass.
From somewhere on the slope near by
Into the pale depth of the noon
A wandering thrush slides leisurely
His thin revolving tune.

In intervals of dreams I hear
The cricket from the droughty ground;
The grasshoppers spin into mine ear
A small innumerable sound.
I lift mine eyes sometimes to gaze:
The burning sky-line blinds my sight:
The woods far off are blue with haze:
The hills are drenched in light.

And yet to me not this or that
Is always sharp or always sweet;
In the sloped shadow of my hat
I lean at rest, and drain the heat;
Nay more, I think some blessèd power
Hath brought me wandering idly here:
In the full furnace of this hour
My thoughts grow keen and clear.

AL BAHR TOWERS 1

AL BAHR TOWERS 1

Mashrabiya is the Arabic term for a traditional latticed sunshade. But for the Al Bahr towers in Abu Dhabi, global architecture firm Aedas have created a super-size version fit for a skyscraper.

Each of the 25-storey towers are clad in a secondary skin made up of 1,000 Teflon-coated fibreglass mesh parasols secured by an aluminium frame. As the Sun passes, the parasols open and close, controlled by a master central computer.

Abu Dhabi’s sunny weather is fairly predictable, but if a dust storm arises an anemometer will detect increased wind speeds and override the system.

The towers require less tinted glass than its neighbours, meaning less internal lighting and less energy use. Who said old-fashioned methods aren’t efficient?

The Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, (CTBUH) Chicago, USA has awarded the Al Bahr Towers in Abu Dhabi (Head-quarters of Abu Dhabi Investment Council and Hilal Bank), the 2012 prestigious award for Innovation to the association of Diar Consult with the international team of Aedas Architects, Arup Engineering and Mace International Project Managers. This unique development is currently in the process of completion and handing-over.
