ABOUT THESE IMAGES

Follow the link to Order/Contact to learn how to order images.

When I'm out with my camera, my eye is often drawn to a subject that isn't so much a discrete isolated thing, but rather a pattern, a field of color or repetition that seems to extend beyond the frame in all directions.


While I'd like to claim that I'm always conscious of capturing a "natural abstract" at the moment I'm doing it, the fact is that every now and then I think I'm shooting an image of something specific—and only later as I review the image do I realize that my intended subject has melted away into pattern and color and a sense of infinite extent.


But the resulting images make me happy either way.
