When we were kids,

we used to dream…

about all the places we would go…

the amazing things we would do…

and even the heroes we would become.

Now that we’re older,….

reality has set in.

A few of us have achieved those dreams…

traveled to incredible destinations…

met unforgettable individuals,…

but for the vast majority of us…

the demands of life,…

our own choices,…

and the decisions of others have brought us to our present situation…

maybe not an uncomfortable one,…

but far from the silver screen dream we planned for ourselves.

However, this does not mean that our lives are failures or that we haven’t achieved our purpose. Perhaps the joys of life are found not always in big melodramatic adventures, but in the quiet places unappreciated by others.

If we change our mindset and perspective, we can find our next inspirational adventure a little closer to home. The “Night Life” series couldn’t have been produced if I hadn’t been engaged in spring cleaning. Yes, another boring task, but there were gifts, little gold nuggets to be mined in the process. Simple light fixtures we often ignore transcended their original purpose as they provided the basic shapes and patterns for whimsical abstract photographs that remind us of the sea.

Enjoy the rest of series here .

New additions are coming soon.

Have a restful and peaceful weekend.

Always remember to live life creatively!

Everyone loves night lights…

until we become adults…

Then,…

they’re just a source of light…

or the latest tech gadget..

not childhood inspiration.

Nevertheless…

whether you clap on or off..

or hit the switch…

they makes our bedrooms…

offices…

and closets bright…

When you flip yours on tonight…

remember…art lives everywhere….

 

When I shot this standard nightlight, I could already see its artistic potential. The warm glow from the center of the light diffused gently, giving it a unique sculptural quality. The dark background and intense color added to the drama. Visions of transparent jelly fish and beautifully pattern conches emerged, creating the welcome introduction to this latest object adventure series.

We’d like to think the walls of our home keep us safe.

They provide necessary protection against the elements,…

strangers, and complex predators…,

but did we ever dream..

that they could be a source of artistic inspiration?

Probably not….

 

In this latest installment of object adventures,..

I’ve added a new addition to the “Spectrum” series,..

“Blue Light Fold”.

Sections of architecture were carefully shot and fused together to create the illusion of a radiating flower like pattern whose vibrant, glowing quality is reminiscent of Color Field Abstract Art and light sculptures from the 70s Light/Space Movement.

When I created this series, I didn’t realize how many striking variations I could create, but as I’ve often pointed out…

the possibilities are endless..

What does this object remind you of?

Have a wonderful and blessed Weekend!

Always remember…

to live life creatively.
