I dig photos with patterns, where the focus of the composition is the background because it is so enthralling as a thing unto itself. Post em if you got em...






this last one less so, because the can is the focus, but I like the undisturbed sand in it.

John, those two pics were taken in the Carrizo Plain, less than an hour from where I live. Kind of cool, when the ocean is about 20 minutes from where I live and the southern Big Sur coast is about 40 minutes from where I live.

Only problem is, the Sierra Nevada, my true love, is about 3 hours away. :(

LOL Now that I look at it, those clouds do seem kind of wimpy compared to Texas sized clouds. Still, it got me to pining away. I grew up in Los Banos in the San Joaquin and we didn't get that many good cloud days.

My uncle has a texas sized ranch in of all places, Texas, and as a kid I use to go out in one of his pastures and lay down just to watch the clouds. Most of my family is from Texas.

Munge:"holy sh#t cosmic, RUN!!!!!"








I was prepared Munge: I was over at a customer's house,
washing their windows, when this swarm of bees buzzed by
and landed in the Joshua Tree next to the house.
I was lucky I had my Nikon in the truck.

I cut a big piece of window screen off one of the rolls I keep in my truck, and made a net for my head. I had gloves,
and I tucked my jeans into my socks, So I was pretty well protected. I was prepared to run though. The front door
to the house was about 20 feet from me, and my customer was waiting just inside the screen door, to open it fast for me
in case I had to BAIL!!!!

A Huge 24"x36" enlargement of that photo hangs on the wall
of that customer now.

"Los Banos? Climb at Pinnacles much?"

Nope....wasn't a climber then. I left Los Banos when I was 18 and didn't go back. I have hiked all over that place though. One funny story happened there when I was 13. A friend and I were camping with his parents. We saw a place on a ridge we wanted to try and get to. We thought a shortcut would be to go through the brush. haha...boy were we wrong. Took us more then 2 hours to go less then a mile. We got scratched up and looked like a mess once we got out of it.

So what clues tell you meteorite, other than the fact that I have talked about meteorites before (ok, a lot)? What do you see that says meteorite? Why can't this be a thin-section from a terrestrial igneous rock?

What tells you this is extra-terrestrial?

Spectreman - love your fourth one!
Pate - luv the dandelions! And what did ya tell the second trout?
That you weren't gonna toss him back?
Munge- yours is very cool! Would like to see it framed a little differently.
Cyndie - that first one is super!

This one isn't a great pic but the ledge patterns are pretty unique for
Sierra granite I thought - some nondescript peak in Kings Canyon.

Lotsa ledges!

Reilly, yeah, I think I had to crop it like that for some reason due to what was in the foreground. It would have ruined the arch light condition focus.

due to dial up, i can't see exactly what type of pics are showing up here...

i did see the first page ones, and the background patterns... but this last page is uploading really slow...

but i think this pic will fit in here:

though it is a bit blurry (think i have a better one, i will look for) but here it is... has a neat background, but not much of a pattern... think i have something more to that lines, too, but got to go find it...

well, here goes:

Thanks Reilly. At that point in time I was on the fence between Music and photography. I had my own B&W darkroom and loved the process. I really wasn't very good at photography though, just shot a lot and got lucky once in a while, so I went into music. Of course then I got hooked on climbing and that was the end of that.

I loved taking pics of those towers. You know those buildings shot up like weeds, they were built so fast. The north tower was finished in a span of four years between 1966 and 70. That means the basic structure went up in two. I lived on Staten Island then and saw them every day.

there are many architects in nature
it is pleasing to become aware of their work as it is not displayed for our pleasure but deployed as an object of utility
and we seem to value abstraction of form and content
those common things around us providing material
the work of another being, the moisture of a cool fall morning, the distracted recognition of a form apparently floating in space where none should be
