Second Friday Open Studios in Alameda

I came across a flyer for Alameda’s “Second Friday Art Walk” – while at Alameda Island Brewing Company. Hmmm, I got flat files and boxes full of photos, at least some of which I’d like to share.

I also have a “studio” a space that a friend and I share here on the lovely island of Alameda. After a quick chat- we’ve decided we’re going to try and participate.

So here are some of the photos I’m hoping to display. Some, like the movie reels and audio cassettes are part of a project focusing on obsolete technology.

Another subject I hope to share includes highlights from recent travels. There are a few photos I’m happy to share from a recent trip including Copenhagen, Büdingen (Hessen), and Berlin etc.

One item I can’t display here is my hand printed black and white traditional prints. Folks who want to sound fancy call these “Fine Art” and “Silver Gelatin” prints. If you’re old enough to be from the film photography era, they’re just normal prints. Except, that I also have some “Alt Process” prints of sorts too that I might display: I’ve been playing around with so called “litho printing”. But these aren’t digitized. You’ll have to hold them in your hands in person if you want to see.

Call or email me (phone four juan 5 – sveen four 2 -0121) for schedule and location if you’re interested.

 

Catching up with Copenhagen p1

Last summer my family and I flew into Copenhagen Denmark, traveled through Germany and flew out of Berlin.

Copenhagen was rich in urban texture. Bikes and bricks were everywhere.

Since there was a substantial time shift- I woke up very early one morning and opted to go photograph.

CopenhagenThe wet streets and gray skies lent themselves to the colorful lights of a closed Tivoli amusement park.

A few Long Daylight Exposures in Lisbon

It can be hard to make a non-cliche photo of famous landmarks. I tried to do something a little differently in photographing the Rua Augusta Arch by using neutral density filters to smear the clouds over long exposures and silhouetting the landmark.
