Detail area of a large mound of sulfur.

Sulfur is a by-product of oil refining and gas production. This mountain of sulfur was at the Hess refinery in St. Croix, US V.I.. The way that certain areas of the sulfur retained moisture and others dried combined with the way the sulfur pellets moved created this beautiful abstraction and range of rich color.

Abstract images from the world of industry create strong graphic and colorful statements.

Subjects from the world of industry offer a surprising collection of strong graphic and colorful images which bring surprising energy into a space. When the subject is abstracted as it is here the result can introduce ambiguity which activates the imagination and invites your own interpretation. Because of the elemental nature of the shapes and the richness of the color the image can be appreciated for its intrinsic beauty.

Industry is built using engineering design. I’ve always appreciated the elegance of design be it in fine art drawings, fashion, or industrial design. Often the clearer the concept the cleaner the design. Long ago the Shakers and Danish designers illustrated that truth.

This image is a sonar mapping image of the floor of the Gulf of Mexico identifying were there are voids in the earth, where there is crude oil and where there is natural gas.

Once again when we turn our attention to nature we often see elegant design and beauty.

I made this image with the iPhone11Pro/camera. No filters, no adjustments, raw from the camera.

One of the things I like about this image is the shapes of the clouds which remind me of mountains on the horizon.

clouds, skies,
Saudi Arabia has dunes, Kazakhstan has mountains, Kyoto has gardens, Iceland…well just about everything, Sarasota has skies

This time of year Sarasota has dramatic skies. Beyond the the beauty of nature there is an opportunity to experience in an elemental way the energy of connection between heaven and earth. Sometimes the clouds are dark and foreboding and even then behind the darkness there is light. Taking time to be present and take in the moment can be a teaching. Nature is the source.

Happy winter solstice. The long days of darkness have passed. Now each day will bring more light and in time new life; grapes for wine, fresh arugula for salads, wheat for bread, raspberries for dessert…..

I turn to nature and celebrate the life and abundance that the light gives us. I hope to use each day to cultivate love, harmony, and beauty.

The images are being offered to lift our spirits after the depressing experience with “red tide” along the coast of Sarasota in recent months.  These beautiful underwater images were photographed in the Carribean, the Florida Keys and the Gulf of Mexico. They show what a healthy marine environment looks like.

Secretary Blenny looking out from it home an evacuated space within a coral.                      Secretary blenny (Acanthemblemaria maria). Blennies take up residence in tiny abandoned holes in coral. Most secretive, they spend most of their time hiding inside or cautiously venturing to the opening of their coral home. They are tiny usually less than 8 cm. long. Bonaire

The Living Seas.

This collection of underwater images made at the premier dive locations in the Caribbean and Florida Keys shows beautiful prints of the vibrant marine life within the Ocean.

Human perception of “out of sight out of mind” is a challenge to our insight into nature.  The oceans and seas are particularly vulnerable to our lack of knowledge because the majority of life beneath the surface is unseen and as a result beyond our consciousness.  This gap of knowledge and understanding is an existential threat not only to the health of the oceans but to our lives, livelihoods, and way of life.

This year, 2018, on the Gulf Coast of Florida a major ecological crisis has surfaced.  From within the waters of the Gulf, countless dead fish surfaced washing onto the pristine white crystalline sands of Siesta beach.  Siesta beach has been recognized as having  “the world’s finest, whitest sand”.

Red Tide has been a phenomenon for more than a hundred years resulting in fish kills.  The Red Tide this year has resulted in an extraordinary number of dead fish plus dead turtles, sharks, and dolphins. This year’s red tide event is historic and deadly serious.  It is a serious threat to marine life, human life, and economics.

For those of us experiencing this deadly event, it has been depressing.  I’ve curated a collection of underwater images I made in the Gulf, Florida Keys and Caribbean which are full of life and beauty.  They are offered to show what a Living Sea looks like and to uplift our spirit.

You’re invited to an opening showcasing these prints October 27, 11 am to 4 pm at my gallery Eastep Photography, 1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, Florida 34236.
