I think this will be the last of my experimental pictures that I’ll post for a while. I have no reason for not posting more of these images other than that I get bored easily and there doesn’t seem to be a way to turn pictures like these into clients, or as they say in the high-tech business world, “to monetize” them. Besides, I’m not that much about selling one-off prints as I am about finding long-term projects.
I’m just sinking my teeth into a more long-term project. I’m photographing a fitness club — oh, alright — a gym, for their website. Instead of the usual pictures, I’m trying to create some very different kinds of pictures. Or, at least different from the usual health club fare. Then, there is French Quarter Fest, Jazz Fest and what will prove to be a very long summer’s work. All of that should keep me busy. Or, busy enough.
So. This picture. This was my first i-Phone image. I was in the parking lot of a grocery store in Albuquerque, New Mexico, when the Sandia Mountains lit up and turned red as the sun set. I thought, “I wish I had a camera,” and then “Oh yeah, I do have a camera, it’s in my pocket.” Add a little painted from an i-Phone app and this is the result.
