About My Blog

December 3rd, 2009  |   Comments Off

Here you can find work in progress, Holga photos, travel photos, snaps from around town and, occasionally, ones from the file boxes that have never found a spot to call home. The nice thing about a blog is that I can show you new work in a less formal fashion than on my web page. I post on a regular basis, so check back. You can follow me on Instagram @ jonnycakes7

Sunset Psychology

April 1st, 2015  |   Comments Off

"Allowing yourself to be captivated by a sunset may have a number of psychological benefits."          -Psychology Today This sunset photo was made many years ago on color slide film. I waited and waited and finally photographed from the railroad trestle above the mighty San Lorenzo River. I scanned the slide and did a minimal amount of adjusting in Photoshop. Basically what you see is how it looked. Sunsets are cliche for photographers. This one is a special cliche!

Nostalgia is a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time.

I'd trade a sunny seventy-five degree afternoon for a cool, blustery rain storm.

Ida

If you like black and white photography and compelling stories, Ida is a movie you must see. The way the camera lingers I felt like I was looking at still photographs in a gallery. Plenty of time to contemplate and appreciate the images. Check it out!
