Upside Down in Mexico

One evening in Cancún we had finished dinner at Las Isla Shopping District and while I was waiting for my wife I took some pictures of reflections in the canal. Normally when taking reflections you take the reflection with the object being reflected included in the shot. That night I only took the reflection.

When I saw the image during editing I rejected it as stupid. Now a few years later I looked at it again and decide to rotate it 180 degrees and I like it! Looks like a painting

Before Photoshop #4—Peggy’s Cove NS 1980

One of the last composites I ever made in the darkroom. This is actually a triple burn. I used part of an image I took in Peggy’s Cove. There were so many birds around yet I didn’t capture any in the frames I shot. The sea gull was from an image captured in Lake worth Florida and the other birds were from a picture taken in the Bay of Fundy on Rugby Neck NS.

The image was created in my darkroom in State College PA.

Before Photoshop #3—Made in Pittsburgh 1976

Before Photoshop not all the magic was created in the darkroom. This multiple exposure was done in the studio using a Nikon F3 camera. It took hours to get it right, not the minutes it would take today with Photoshop. The client was Corning Glass and it was created in my studio in Pittsburgh.

A Missing Moment…Jumping Bean

When assembling images for our show, “Moments and Souls” I forgot to include this one. If we ever decide to publish a book I will have to include it. It is a perfect moment captured in front of the Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago’s Millennium Park. The sculpture is affectionately called The Bean by Second City residents.

This young lady placed a lot of trust in the crowd as she jumped from her boyfriend’s shoulders into their waiting arms.

Art Deco Masterpiece

My daughter asked me to find a suitable image for a site she is working on involving the city of Chicago. I sent her some images and once again was struck with the beauty of this building which is symbolic of the Second City.

When ground was broken for the Wrigley Building in 1920, there were no major office buildings north of the Chicago River. The Michigan Avenue Bridge was still under construction. Today this magnificent architectural structure is a symbol of the great city of Chicago and a National Landmark. It is a true art deco masterpiece and rivals the Empire State Building in New York as a symbol of that style.

Zombie French Edition Boxed Set

I recently licensed 10 of my images to be included with the new French edition of Dawn of The Dead. It was known in Europe as Zombie. The people who put together the box set included the images as separate prints that are suitable for framing or in a scrapbook. I thought this was every clever. All the images and over 40 more are included in my book, Zombie Nights: My two Nights with The Living Dead.
