The Zen of Street Photography was simply a product of several types of inspiration, photographic and otherwise, finally congealing together into one thing. The idea, perhaps obviously, is simply to see the art in what ever exists around us.

  • The Ones That Get Away
    on Dec 20, 2010
    Sometimes, the story of how the photo got away is better than the photo would have been had it worked out. During an evening walk along the outdoor mall in Santa Monica, which is of course covered in everything Christmas, we came across a well-dec...
  • The Real Legacy
    on Nov 7, 2010
    I suppose it's the very essence of meditation draw unusual conclusions from seemingly unrelated things. Since I try to make photography something of a meditation, it hopefully answers the question "how did this guy make THIS connection?" The bottle t...
  • The Waiting Room
    on Oct 15, 2010
    There are times when I take photos where I don't know what, if anything, the end result will be. Despite my best attempts to control the elements, the shutter speeds and depth of field, ultimately so much of what winds up actually getting captured is...
  • Stumbling across balance.
    on Jun 1, 2010
    I have always said this was supposed to be about finding balance. I suppose short of happening across some street gymnasts or tight-rope walkers (which at this point wouldn't be that much of a surprise), this is about the best I'm going to get in a l...
  • Peak or Segue?
    on May 25, 2010
    I would like to put my “asterisks” here. First off, I don't want to come across as sanctimonious or pious in any way. My goal, both in writing and photography, is balance; all “either/or” creates is conflict. Secondly, I don't know the answ...
  • Twisted reflections
    on May 16, 2010
    We see ourselves every day. At first intentionally as we decide how we should look for the rest of the world. Then, throughout the rest of the day, we come across ourselves in everything from store windows to rain puddles. Each time we see oursel...
  • Los Angeles to San Diego (Via Asia)Day 1: Los Angeles -- If Los Angeles isn't my favorite city in the world, it's certainly in the top 5 (it frequently changes places with London). So it's somewhat sad that this is the best I was able to come up with photographically... More >> Day 2:...
  • Drive By Time Travel
    on Mar 6, 2010
    It’s inevitable. As anyone who fancies himself a photographer traverses the nation’s roads, countless photos will whiz by at 85 (wait…no…) 65 MPH. Despite my rather stubborn attachment to film, I feel it should be noted that this is where di...
  • Innocence...and on a day when I wasn't expecting much
    on Mar 1, 2010
    I had actually taken this photo quite some time ago. I had just bought a new lens, so of course I wound up with a slew of unspectacular days in a row, a new piece of equipment taunting me the whole time. Clouds or no clouds, I took a trip to La Jol...
  • Inviting Chaos
    on Feb 20, 2010
    I suppose that it's true that simplicity is often the best approach. Though I don't suppose there is particularly anything unusual or insightful about this photo, it just struck me as a pleasant find. The earthy color of the building seems to compl...
