Art gallery in the wild

Yet another of my photography experiments, these are what I think of as paintings in the wild. Maybe they're self explanatory. We'll have a real little gallery for you today.

I'm probably ready to get more talkative soon, but first... pictures!

Many of these pictures will not be super blurry. This should not be seen as indicative of the standard of my work which I find to be much more consistently blurry. I've chosen carefully so as to look like a more impressive photographer. I'm keeping the pictures a little smaller than usual to make their flaws less noticeable. It's a work in progress.

I'll start with the one I like best:

The thing I really like about this above is how it shows the brilliance of Van Gogh. The verisimilitude of his flowers are only more apparent against real ones.

I like the little and big of all this I guess. 

This might be too much, with all the framing.

I didn't pick these flowers. I was hiking on the river and found them piled on a rock outcrop over the river. It felt like they'd been killed just for me!

Maybe this one should be larger because it's a bit hard to see.

I really wish this one turned out better. I may try again.

  1. These are fascinating. I'm glad that you have this outlet for your creativity, since I know it's not universally appreciated at your workplace.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
