I owe this shot to my friend Kelly, if it weren’t for his scouting eye I would have walked past this scene, leaving it unnoticed, as I answered an incoming call during our photowalk today. Thats the beauty of enjoying the company of friends during the days photographic adventures, you always have a backup set of eyes 🙂 Thanks Man!

Another unusual vehicle to add to my collection of auto images! This mini bus has been painted and repainted so many times throughout my life span. Its owned by a auto collision repair center just down the street from where I grew up, and every few years they give it a fresh coat of paint in hopes of luring newcomers through their door. This is the most extravagant paint job that I recall it having in all the times I have seen it, and probably the most suiting coat for the vehicle.

Short. Simple. To the point 🙂

So, I often get asked… ” Hey! Mr. Photo Man I bet you have a lot of photo taker apps on your touchy telephone don’t you?.. DONT YOU?!?” (I guess I have a lot of conversations with enraged drunks). So I thought I would break down the 4 photog apps that I currently have and use on my iphone, only 2 of which are actual photo editing apps, and you can do with it as you like. So here it is… I now bring you:

As you can probably tell by some of my more recent posts, I’ve had a weird renewed fascination with bold primary colors lately. Its probably the longing for summer that is coming out in my photography, but whatever it is I really don’t mind it. According to Jay Maisel there are 3 things to capture in a photo: Color, Light and Gesture. Although I obviously keep an open mind to allowing any of them catch my eye, I find that I jump from focusing on one to another as weeks go past, and eventually make my way back through each. For a while I will focus on light, searching for unique shadows and reflections, capturing different times of the day. Then there are periods where I try to capture beautifully candid gestures from people and things. Then times like now its almost a scavenger hunt in a way to find color combinations that evoke certain emotions. Thats the beauty with art, its flexible and you can play these kinds of games if you would like.

What kinds of games do you guys play while out shooting?
