A stormy sky brews in the background of this rocky beach. Someone, maybe more than one being, has left prints in the sand mostly moving away from the crustacean infested rocks.
This photograph is part of my Sci-Fi Landscapes series. We don't know for certain that this image shows a scene from Earth. We don't know if the being, or beings, who left the prints were human. It appears that these are human prints, but do we know that species from other worlds do not have similar footprints?...We don't. We also don't know why this being was at the beach, or what lies beyond the huge, dark colored stones is there an ocean on the other side, more rocks, more sand, other people...creatures? We don't know the answers to these questions either. This is a mysterious and emotionally-flavored landscape that leaves us with more questions than answers, and that's the way I wanted it to be.
When I pick up my camera...when I compose the subjects in the frame...and, when I plan and set up my lighting, I have one thing in mind: To take a better photograph than the last time.
I have been using a camera as a hobbyist, and then as a freelance professional (starting in 1998), for a total of 39 years: I started photography when I was 12-years old.
I specialize in commissioned Head-Shot Portraits, Photographs of People, and Fine Art Abstract Expressionism Photography. I also create and design fine art, abstract photographs of my own abstract expressionism paintings. As a painter, I love working with alcohol-based permanent ink, acrylic paints, and watercolour pencils.
