What do you see when you close your eyes?

Of Hieronymous Bosch © Steven Willard

The first thing I thought of on converting this image to black and white was the paintings of Hieronymous Bosch and the writhing, tortured figures in his paintings of Hell. But that’s just me.

The look of large format

I was hoping to emulate the look of a large format negative contact printed on platinum paper.

*My apologies to Burt Bacharach and Hal David 🙂

Post 4th of July

In honor of 4th of July

For me the 4th of July used to be a much more colorful and joyous day. I miss those times when things weren’t so dark, when our country was more hopeful.

Spring meadow

Spring wildflowers and hay bales © Steven Willard

I had driven past this spot countless times knowing there should be a picture here, but always finding it lacking something, until this day. The wildflowers in front, the rolls of hay beyond, all lit by a soft overcast provided a shadowless effect.

Wouldn’t you like to have a quiet spot just big enough for one comfortable chair and a lamp to read by? Close enough to walk to easily, but far enough that you won’t be distracted by everyday stuff. No phone alllowed!

I Remember

How we work today © Steven Willard

I remember when a scene like this was unusual. The lone individual sitting at a restaurant table might read the newspaper (remember those?) or sometimes a book (remember those?) but rarely did you see someone working. Now we think nothing of it.

The fellow in this photograph didn’t know I was taking his picture, but we did strike up a conversation and have since become friends. He likes the picture because it doesn’t reveal too much of him. I disagree, I think it tells quite a lot.

I had been waiting for just the right light for this image, soft morning fog seemed like just the thing.

Optimistic

Optimistic, Woodbury, Ct.

This is a local example of someone being overly optimistic about what one person can accomplish with little money and only so many hours in a day. It’s amazing how much one person can do, but not surprising that he died before he was able to finish.
