So, what is this?

So, what is this?

So, I just had to do one more scratch shot. Wondering how many can guess what it is. But then, I don’t have a good way of taking guesses … and answering, either.

It is a tube of Cadmium Yellow acrylic art paint. Taken with a Minolta bellows attachment with a macro lens, using Ektachrome 400. Scratches by means of a miniature scalpel.

Art??? Scratch that…

Mustang

I was going through ‘old’ images and found these. They started out as Ektachrome slides … I took a miniature scalpel to them under a magnifying glass and scratched along the lines. There is a choice of when you stop and which lines you highlight… that’s the art choice. Some of the colors in the scratches are from the emulsion peeling up and partly remaining.

I did a 4′ x 8′ painting of the Mustang and put it on the door of my garage. I left it there when I left. Always thought about going back to see if it is still there 30 years later.

This was taken on the Haines Highway, outside of Haines, Alaska. In the springtime, the sunsets last for hours. This provides the landscape photographer with time to drive around looking for the ‘best’ spot for getting a sunset photo. It stretches “The Golden Hour” into 3 or 4. If you can deal with the mosquitoes, it’s a wonderful place for photography.

One of my favorite part of living in Western Washington is watching the cloudy weather blowing through the trees on the ridges of the Olympic National Park. It reminds me of Japanese prints and Zen poetry.

Trees, laced in mountain mist, patch broken cloud;
