Photo Essay

The Crazy World Of Photography

In My Own Little World

Sometimes you just have to get in there and play. Is any of this considered fine art? Maybe not...but it's fine with me. :)

Experimenting, playing just for the heck it of can result in some interesting, exciting, and fun images. I love taking standard landscape, flower, and sunset photographs, inspired by light, music, and colors, but on the other hand I am taken with multiple exposures in-camera or out, image transfers using a Polaroid Land with Fujifilm, creating TtV's using a 1947 Kodak Duaflex in conjunction with a Canon EOS, and now using software to create mini worlds is just good fun! So get in there, snap away, and use what you've got, and make something new!
