Favorites

The weekly photo challenge is to post your all time favorites. That’s a tough one. My favorites change from day to day. But I’ll post some of my current favorites.

Travel Maps

Street Photography

How would it look?

A new gallery with some of my images in living spaces. Ever wonder what it would look like on the wall? I used an extension for Photoshop created by Giovanni Allievi. Visit his page and check out his work and if you can purchase the extension there as well.

They look great in these spaces. The soft, muted tones look great on dark walls or light. Did you know that you can purchase my prints already framed? It makes  decorating so much easier.

Some more of my favorites

Food art for the kitchen. Or travel photography from central Europe.  Check out my Americana gallery for images of American cities and towns.

East Tennessee: A photographer’s view

I live in East Tennessee, so a great many of my photos are from the area. We sometimes take our home town for granted. We ignore the history, the landmarks, and the beauty. Last year, I tried to make an effort to take photos of my area just like I would if I were a tourist.  I ended up with a collection of reflection photos from downtown Knoxville and some nice photos from rural Tennessee. Of course, the Sunsphere appears as well. To purchase prints of the following, click here.

Everybody’s Favorites

Here is a gallery of the favorites everyone chose.  It was important to me to get the opinion of others because it’s hard for me to be objective sometimes. I know the story. I know the work that went into the art. I know how I felt when I took the photo, so something that is pretty blah to others might be my favorite of all. But sometimes you know when you have one that everyone will love.  Boot fan is an all around favorite for everyone. Who doesn’t love good looking boots? And Selfie in the Window. I saw the young women in the window and knew that I had to take that photo. It has proven to be popular. The flowers are favorites, too. I love all of the maps, but it seems only a few get the thumbs up from everyone else. So, here they are. Feel free to comment.

Oh, yeah, these are all available for sale in my Fine Art America Gallery – click here.

 

Hemingway Slept Here

Some more map art. This time it includes photos of Finca Vigía, Hemingway’s home in San Francisco de Paula, Cuba and quotes from some of the books he wrote there. Finca Vigía means Lookout Farm and it does have a beautiful view.

“The world is a fine place, and worth fighting for” – For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ernest Hemingway.
“You never understand anyone that loves you” – Islands in the Stream, Ernest Hemingway.

Cuban Map Art

After working several of my photos from Cuba, I decided to try something different. I wanted to emphasize the idea of travel and adventure that drives me. I have always loved the beauty of maps and so decided to integrate my love of photography and my love of maps.
