These four photos were taken over pretty long period of time. They are all a study in shapes and textures. Color, in this case, steps back as I converted all of the photos into a black-and-white format. Yet, aren't they just full of life? And they may not, at first sight, look like they go together. Two of them are an ode to nature: the outstanding bloom and the strikingly beautiful rain drops that look like they will burst any moment. And then, two of them are an ode to the creations of humans: the stacked metal chairs and the lone fisherman in his small boat making his way through pilings at a local marina.
These photographs are part of a black-and-white photography exhibition called "En Blanc et Noir" organized by the Chesapeake Art Center. The photos are on display at Gallery 90 at the Hospice of the Chesapeake in Pasadena, MD, until September 1, 2017.
