Traveling Through Colors: Red

Gallery

It’s Sunday and I am seeing Red.

It’s a hot color that stirs the blood (also Red) and leads to excitement in most. There’s not a single calming thing from this post about traveling the world, seeing Red. Except for the Spanish guy with the umbrella, he looks pretty relaxed.

And if Red isn’t your color of choice, there are other colors in the series.

My Favorite And Odd Photos From 2013

Gallery

I am presenting these images from 2013 in the hopes that you find something you like. That being said, there are some images here only I might like, and I’m good with that. I started taking more “odd” photos in 2013, experimenting with blue and playing with colored tonic water poured over fruit and vegetables. While I love the mountains and travel, there are a lot of subject matter that interest me that will never get the “oooohhh” and “ahhhhh”s that those picture garner. But that’s what photography is for me, endless exploration and experimentation to present a view of what is in front of me.

Some of these images made the cut because they are stand-alone pretty. Some made the cut because they hold memories for me and my family (and I know my wife will be reading this post so I want to help jog her memory of the happy times we have shared). And then some….well, I’ll group these images by style to make it easier. Let’s start with the pretty stuff and then move into family memories (there were too many to show them all) and then the odd stuff you might not know me for.

This post will be gathered in a compilation my friend Jim Goldstein puts together of various photographers’ “Best of 2013” lists. If you would like to join in, check out this link. I’m wondering if this list will be included as Jim suggests (rightly so) narrowing your list to five or ten images. I have 32 in this list. I don’t follow direction well.

How To Use This Slideshow For Best Effect

If you are reading this in a RSS viewer or on email, I suggest you click on over to a web browser (Here’s a link to make it easier for you). It works on your phone (probably), tablet or computer and the bigger the screen the better the images.

Now do you see that x in the upper right corner above this text? Once you click that, you’ll have a full browser view of the images. You can then use the control arrows at the bottom of the image or your mouse’s scroll wheel. Or just flick them aside on your tablet like you would other pictures.
