Picked it up after the Army and found photo-walks quite therapeutic; especially in the evening when things quiet down.
What is the “other” hobby ?
Photography + Grasshopper
Interesting. You processed it in grasshopper To be honest I haven’t delved into grasshopper that much.
Highly recommend. Also nice butterfly macro shots! Followed you on insta.
Yes. I started in the mid-70’s when I was in school, did it fairly intensively until the early 80’s, even had a few shows in San Francisco. Then the 3D stuff (modelmaking, furniture, sculpture) gradually took over. Picked it up (digitally) in 2013 and am now doing it more intensively again - in between other stuff like …
I am starting to work through scanning my 1000’s of b/w negatives (and a few slides) from the 70’s and 80’s, as well as doing new stuff. It’s a lot of fun and at least these days I don’t need a complete darkroom!
Oakland, CA, 1975 - scan of an original 8"x10" b/w negative (that never got printed back then).

And you are actually serious about it … For me it helps clear the mind and be in the moment; paying attention to the details of the world instead of letting the mind swim in thoughts.
You have a gallery with your work ?
Err… not yet. I’m working on it, just trying to decide what platform to use.
flickr is not that bad, 1000 images are for free
What criteria ?
Well, ideally it would be my own website with a dedicated gallery. However, I don’t have the skills really to set that up correctly. Also, although I am not a fan or user of social media - I thought I should have some kind of presence there, as most people these days look for that - I started mocking up a FB page, but I haven’t decided to publish it yet. I suppose Flickr might be an interesting alternative.
Highly recommend squarespace. I use it for my business as well as portfolio. The upload is manual however.
Nice work !
Bokeh and trails are always mesmerizing. They are mere technicalities, but the child in me still falls for them
