Zig Zag, morning shadows, in downtown Las Vegas, NM. There are a lot of quirky elements in Las Vegas to incorporate in to images. Shadows form at all times of day. We spent a good part of the day ducking in and out of alleys and doorways thrilled by the surprises we found around the next staircase, building façade, and colonnade. Thanks for looking. G
Staircase to the top Santa Fe, New Mexico. A lot of times I’m walking down the road and look to my right or left and simply make an image. This one is from a few years ago for a story on ghost tours in Santa Fe. Looks a little spooky, right? Also it looks like it doesn’t go anywhere.
Today I’ve added a new feature to my website called “My Musings” I will be offering these free PDF downloads for your enjoyment, viewing pleasure and inspiration. Please feel free to share with your family and friends or on social media. As always thank you for looking. Geraint.
Shadow rails and stairway, Cuchillo, NM. I liked the decay emphasized by the shadows of the handrail creating a kind of filigree look to the scene. One of the first images I made on film in my teens, was of the long shadows cast from trash cans across the stubby shadows of a cobble stone alley in Yorkshire, England. As you can imagine it was a contrasty, high key, harsh look, the exact opposite of this softer more inviting, gentler look. Again … thanks for looking. G
