My favorite shots of all time








This series of images, a series I call "Between Tides," was created back in 2009. I spent a lot of time walking along Oregon beaches, photographing rocks on the bluffs. I then chopped up the pictures, re-combined them, blended them, and turned them into these images. I have more than 50 of them!

Why do I like them? They are primitive-looking, colorful, graphic, strange, mysterious, and bold. They represent my time spent simply walking and looking. They represent my ability to make something out of seemingly nothing. And they are nothing like I have seen anywhere else. And I've seen a lot! They are uniquely mine.

I have a number of them up on Fine Art America. Have they ever sold? No. Should I remove them? No. Eventually someone will like them as much as I do. And if not, then they're still there for me to admire!

Hmmmm... These would look good printed on metal. At the very least, I should have some printed to hang in my own home.

Again, I consider these my favorite photos. And of the hundreds of thousands of pictures I've created, these still, from 2009, stand out for me.

Thanks for looking.

I can see why you are drawn to them. They are beautiful. Putting aside the business part of it, I think you have been blessed that you have produced work that still gives you joy! You are a rich lady.

Wow. What a wonderful thing to say, Ramon. Brings tears to my eyes. Yes. I've been blessed, lucky, and appreciative of all that has come my way. Thank you for reminding me. I shall copy your words and will keep them close. Thank you again, sir.
