I finally gave in and signed up for Flickr, so I thought I'd share some of my latest work.

Great pictures Chris. The quality is amazing. Some pretty gloomy pictures though... Amazing nonetheless.

The first picture of the abandoned hotel is my favorite.

Thanks!

My photography has always been very textural, I like to find the beauty in otherwise uninteresting, or undesirable subjects. I'm drawn to grunge, clean and new is just so boring.

Very grunge. That dumpster photograph is perfect. Great editing throughout. I could definitely see these blown up all over my house.

That's the idea! I'm exploring this concept for a future art show, if I can narrow it down. For now, I continue to shoot and experiment.

When you say editing... What exactly do you edit on these photos?

Lens distortion and perspective corrections, color correction with a slight tint, sometimes cropping.

I love the vintage 70s type feel that some of them have. Architecture and design from the 70s has always tugged at me.

Also, the tentacles. :happy:

pretty sure jer was referring to the length

More from yesterday. I walked through some new neighborhoods for about 4 hours, then I went back to shoot the silver trailer in softer light. We've had some rare cloudy days, it's a nice change from such intense sun.

Nice Mr. Marks. I have always wondered how much text you could fit on the side of a Chevy Van.

I would like to nominate Scott Riemer for MOD of the month!!!

Scott... you're amazin'. :wub:
