Cat In A Chair

Cat In A Chair

Graphics, Photography March 1, 2019

Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan, at the time, this neighborhood cat would periodically enter through a small window opening of my upstairs apartment in an older house. Shelter from rain, comfortable seating and an occasional helping of tunafish from a can served to reinforce a friendship over time.

A variety of items featuring this graphic design are available in my galleries at Redbubble and Fine Art America.

Bottom of A Bottle

This close-up photograph features the bottom of an old bottle with many air bubble imperfections, and embossed lettering Cantrell & Cochrane. I think that it once contained mineral water, ginger ale, seltzer water or medicated aerated water.

Dog In The Window

Dog In The Window

Graphics, Photography February 10, 2019

Many moons ago, in a distant land referred to as Kalamazoo, a slow, low-to-the-ground basset hound named “Flash” posed for a picture in an apartment window.

He was a cantankerous dog, rather dim-witted and liked to howl loudly. And, if you looked at him in a manner he deemed inappropriate, Flash would express his displeasure rather quickly by means of a moderately-firm bite. Ouch!

How this graphic design came to be is somewhat unusual.

I took this photograph in 1997 using Kodak film in an analog camera. Several years later – probably 2005 – I owned a simple digital camera and a more ‘modern’ computer with creative software. At that time, I had the idea that I could take a digital photograph of the film negative, and use it in some fashion as an element of a future design. That point in time was this morning.

I used both Abode Photoshop & Affinity Photo to craft this graphic design, now available for purchase in the following galleries:

Old Quarry In Knoxville, Tennessee

Photography, Structures January 12, 2019

As a second part to an earlier post entitled, Ijams Nature Center In Knoxville, TN, the following photographs include scenes from another trail known as Haworth Hollow (see marker, below):

Ijams Nature Center, Knoxville, TN

It’s difficult to read the small print, which cites that the area houses the rare Berry Cave Salamander, known almost exclusively from five caves within a 12 mile radius of Knoxville, Tennessee.

Walking along the trail seemed rather uneventful, until I turned a corner to see the beginning of a quarry with a limestone wall reaching approximately 100′ tall. It was quite a surprise!
