Last Images of 2009

They say sometimes you lose a whole year.

2009 started off in a catatonic way and really didn't pick up until November.

Truth be told , I've been in a transition period for sometime now. I hit the proverbial " Old Fork in the Road" period and really didn't know what I would do next. Sometimes I can be a text book- card carrying, membership dues always current Virgo, but not when it comes to my craft.

So I puttered a lot. I didn't look too much at photography or my own work for that matter. I was on a sabbatical of some sort, but in the back of my mind I really wanted to figure out what to do next.

For the better part of 25 years I've been working mainly with an 8x10 and 12x20 inch view camera making platinum palladium prints .

I thought I'd work that way for the rest of my life, but as life would have it, I stopped seeing and my interest in the medium I've loved for almost 30 years waned.

But all is not lost as I've rekindled my love affair with examining life and the world . This time with a new tool.

I'm not saying its the end all, but at least I'm in love again.........sometimes, that's all that matters.

Sometimes you just have to tell yourself to just shut the fuck up and take pictures.
I attached a new series called " Autoscapes " . Sometimes the best view is from a moving car.

Happy New Years to all out there ! See you in 010.
