Canon 5D MKII, ISO 800. Leica 50mm Elmar and 35mm Elmar lenses used. Image composited in Photoshop using image of foggy road and silhouetted image of the automobile.

I began my love of photography when I picked up my mother’s huge 6X8 Kodak bellows camera and tripped the shutter and flashbulb at age three.

My commercial work is represented internationally.

When I am not working, I am riding motorcycles, playing jazz guitar and reveling in nature at my rural cottage in the Cohutta Wilderness Area of North Georgia.

La vie est bonne!

    Serves him right for having a dirty screen. Very Tim Burton and packed with mystery, in fact isn’t that Johhny Depp behind the wheel?

  • HAHA! Great commentary! Thanks mate.

    Beautifully done Arni. Like a scene from The Sopranos. Who got bumped off there I wonder.

  • Thanks so much! Tony says hey.

    really intriguing. the possibilities are really endless as to what exactly happened here…..but with the Texas plates, my guess is some sort of foul play. as always, the b&w is superb!

  • Thank you Michael!
