My work consists of black and white photography.
I prefer this type of expression in my own journey for true photography. If I see color in my images it seems they do not tell my true vision of photography.
I tend to look at the background as the stage for the performance and the print is the finished score much as Ansel Adams did.
When photographing I stop when I see a subject of interest, then I study the subject to see if it is the right time a day to photograph it or decide I might like it better with a different light, time of date, or a different season.
When looking for subject matter I have no preference as to what the subject consist since I try to be subjective in my subject, water, bridges, buildings, old things of the past seem to get my attention more than most subjects Often I will start out to photograph a certain subject and not photograph it at al but find something along the way that I see will make me stop and look.
