More of my images can be seen at my own blog.
I’m sorry but you won’t find me on wordpress if you have a desire to see more of my work. I am on Facebook, though. And Flickr. Please visit me there and say hello. Emilio Pasquale Photography. Even though my name is not Emilio. Nor Pasquale. OK, so a bit of history…
When Monochromia first started, mine was the very first post. When I thanked Joe for the honor, he admitted that he had pulled my name out of a hat. Nice guy, that Joe. He couldn’t even lie? But I still feel honored.
Then, one day I admitted that I was not a thirty-something photographer, as my caricature logo and writings had lead everyone to believe. I am a child of the 60’s, now retired. I had chosen the name in honor of my grandfather, Emilio, and my uncle, Pasquale, who had passed through Ellis Island with my grandmother on their way to Brooklyn in the early 1900’s. My father was born here in 1923.
I picked up my first camera when I was 18. My dad built me a b&w darkroom in our garage in North Hollywood California back then. Straight out of college, I got a job working as an apprentice motion picture editor. I retired in 1999 and became a Realtor in Las Vegas in 2004. I am now fully retired and loving every minute of it!
So, please come visit me on Facebook or Flickr. I also sell artwork at Fine Art America and am working on getting a portfolio together. For my third career, hopefully.

A solid northeast wind with all of Lake Superior to gather ahead of the gale means furious waves at the western end of the lake. On Saturday, April 14th, we had such a day and it became a tourist event with all accessible locations crowded with sightseers…and lots of photographers. At one spot there was even surfers.

At my own blog http://stevenwillardimages.wordpress.com I recently posted a photograph that I mined from images taken last December. In that post I took the opportunity to walk through the basic steps used to arrive at the final color image. Here is the monochrome rendering. Much as I like black and white, this is one instance where I prefer the color, but it is interesting-at least to me-how it holds up to the conversion, and how the two versions are dependent on different aspects of the image. I may print them both and hang them side by side just as an exercise.
