Lizard skin shadow play spotted during my morning walk in Hermosillo, Mexico.

This photograph is part of a new series titled Morning Walk. The images are taken with the camera on my I-Phone 4, so print size and image quality is limited by the camera’s non-adjustable settings. I can correct color and contrast during the developing process in Photoshop and Lightroom, but my photographic creativity is basic composition. In this case the camera produced the dark blue sky seen at the top of the image, (Such as one would get by using a polarizer filter). I liked the effect, so I decided not to fiddle with the color.

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.

    You know..this experience is more a visual haiku than anything….and I find that you are walking the life with eyes opened..and so I am sure that though you may have hard times… your imaginative heart and mind will let you feel at home. I am taken aback by the extreme simplicity of your images. Conceptual and minimal. Find it contemplative and alive. Good done…Richard.

  • Thank you so much for your attention and your kindness Rosa. You see the beauty in simplicity and the art of light and shadow – an art which I find fascinating for it’s momentary be-ing in a dynamic of constant change. These characteristics, in my humble opinion, define perfection. And, I am amused by the irony.

    Un abrazote para ti Rosa :-)

    The humble yet striking found image, the one hundreds of people might pass without seeing, is a perfect sign of the artistic photographer’s eye. This is brilliant work!

  • Thank you very much Celeste. I have a special attraction to shadow play. Some see the wall, others see the fence, I see the shadows :-)
