impasto interlude #2

roady ochres.

synesthesiac metallic interminglings (steal the sunsetting light parts, praying for pigments’ proselytization)

beat back the ‘i-see-you-ceiling’ creepers, crags steeper, then deeper still.

soft firmament ultra in-betweens; let dusk point-process the left-overs so twilight can be rid of tangles.

a polished carve of edge-detected, roan-saturated oddities, packed up masked with blurred bevels of alpha falafel scrapes; flakey beastly butter splashed on for savory sequitur, post appetizing, pre-deserting the table before dessert of eye-candy hard-browns, boston-cream clouds, and squirrely soaks of dusted speckled egg mounts concave clicks of chinaware where care has been spent and saved and vested, velvet flair will provide with an air of servitude sans attitude, for provision, provision, provision…

candied cellophane, alasking its way to transparental unit unties with hemispheric realities—escape! bring the cosmos, net it up, sift the hand gestures til ways are worthwhile. moose will see these, flighted birds will see this, the underground fish will see them, mediums around us will absorb but not abscond, for we will see these colors before we’re killed.

grab a taste.

Nopa Stroll

The first time I took photos in a long while. Such a nice return. San Francisco is a wealth of material, and I got pulled in block-by-block, subject by subject.

Speaking of subjects, my penchant for the inanimate can only bring me so far; despite my strong feelings for many of these shots, I’ve been considering switching it up and giving myself a new challenge. Going in the complete opposite direction, I would like to try some people as subjects. Lighting, composition, mood, patience, and interaction will be completely different. Looking forward to it!

Enjoy my angles.

New Photo Collections

Colors

It’s no secret to my friends that I love colors. This collection highlights some of my favorite color digital photographs that I’ve taken. All of them are straight-up photographs except where otherwise noted in the captions. Opposed to my other series, Color Corrections, these only have minimal levels editing, with no adjustments to hue or saturation.

Minimals

Not too much going on. The way I like it. There’s something serene in these types of shots. Composition is paramount. Patterns are everywhere.

green

People we know have done this. You may have done this. It’s ok. But listing “the color green” as one of your favorite “things” in a favorites list is a tired practice (slightly less egregious is listing it as a favorite “color”). I admit, it’s a great color. Likeable, symbolic, and all-around robust. But our eyes are built to like green; the rods quiver and shake in its presence. We’re senstive to its presence as a poet is senstive to every goddamn thing he or she perceives. There’s a plethora (pleth-flora?) of shades to choose from. Make and choose your own. Here are my favorites:

robin-hood green
straight-up green
light-saber green
dashing green
neon green
tinsel green
forest green
sea-glass green
green-green
