I figure good photography should have, at the very least, the quality of expression. In other words, I take pictures to show how I feel about the world around me. Sometimes that translates into relating a sense of place or my fascination with the way light strikes a scene or just the shapes within a scene.
On occasion, Gloria and I will go for walks in the Reseda neighborhood ending up on the bike path along the Los Angeles River, which is pretty much a concrete ditch otherwise known as a flood control channel. I always bring my camera looking for pictures that allow me that expression—how I see the world and what makes it interesting to me. Sometimes that means details, sometimes juxtapositions of elements and other times that sense of place.
Here are a few recent shots.
