I'm scanning my old negatives into digital form.  It's a painstakingly slow process, but one that I'm enjoying. It's fun to breath new life into some images that have been kept in a storage box for more than 15 years.  Back when I was taking photos on film, very few ever made it to the enlarger for printing.  The image below was one of those images.  I was too busy making other images at the time, that this one never got made into a print.  It's been fun trip down memory lane picking out negatives to scan.

Now, although still not printed, it's at least out of the storage box and into the world.

As always, comments are appreciated

Galveston Causeway (part 2)

The Galveston Causeway is much more than a bridge to many people.  For those of us that live on the island, it is our lifeblood and probably the only reason we can survive on this thin strip of sand.  It allows good and services to be brought to us, and brings millions of tourists here to enjoy what we call home.  It also acts as a shield or barrier from what is on the other side of it. Simply by crossing the bridge into Galveston gives many people a sense of freedom from the worries and troubles on the other side of it.  At the apex of the Causeway, they can finally relax because now, they are in Galveston.

New Project - Galveston Causeway

Although I haven't posted in a while, I have been working on a couple of new projects.  The following are a few images of a series I'm working on with the Galveston Causeway as a subject.  For the technical details on the bridge, check the Traylor Bros. website. I've chosen this bridge as a subject because it is a daily part of my life.  I live close by, so I'm constantly seeing it in new ways.  As I walk my dogs around the neighborhood, the bridge dominates the view to the north.  Light and shadow on the bridge changes by the hour, so at times it looks light and airy where at other times can look dark, ominous and cold.  The images below are obviously of the dark/moody type.

Color Study

I don't do color photography very often for a couple of reasons.  The main reason is because I'm color blind.  Not just a little color blind, but severely color blind.  I was once told by an opthamologist that I don't see color at all.  I think he was wrong because I think I live in a colorful world just as most everyone else does, except that all the color I see is completely different than you. I've generally stuck with black and white photography for the last 20 years because I don't have to worry about trying to get the color "right".  The following images are obviously quite a departure from anything I've done since...well, forever.. Normally when I'm out shooting photographs, I'm composing and "thinking in black and white".  Thinking about shades of gray, light, and contrast.  For these images, I was not doing that, but was looking at the colors and composing and shooting for them.  Since these are pretty abstract, I wasn't too worried about getting the color "right".   I'm not sure if these work or not.  Let me know what you think in the comment section.
