In early April, on the same morning during which I photographed the sequence that I’ve shown in Foggy Spring Morning at Lake Hodges, I also photographed a group of sycamore trees that I can frame nicely from the same location — the little hill at Lake Hodges that I can reach with a 10-minute drive and 15-minute walk, from our house.
These small sets are comprised of images that are meant to be viewed together. Though some may have a singular visual appearance that may qualify them as a triptych, quadtych etc., that is not necessarily a criterion. It’s simply that together, these photos are more than the sum or their parts, as the saying goes. I hope you can see that too, and enjoy it.
Some of these are available as ready-made collages (as a single print) in my print-on-demand store, in the Collages Print Gallery. If that looks interesting but you’re looking for a different arrangement of frames, or can’t find what you’re looking for, please contact me and I’ll be glad to help.
Foggy Spring Morning at Lake Hodges
A sequence of four photos, made within about 45 minutes, as fog shrouded a knoll with trees and boulders at Lake Hodges in Rancho Bernardo.
These three photos are from October 2011; I made them at the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego’s Balboa Park. Back then, the garden had not yet been expanded into the canyon, with its multiple ponds and water features, and only had a single Koi pond. The entire place was much, much smaller, but equally enjoyable in its relative stillness.
Can’t Get Enough Desert Holly
Desert Holly (Atriplex hymenelytra plant portrait) is one of my favorite desert shrubs — it’s amazing how it finds a place to grow almost everywhere, and with its gray-green leaves, it’s also very photogenic I think!
A Breaking Wave
Here’s a quick follow-up to yesterday’s post, where I mentioned the various sequences that I photographed: you guessed it, this is one of them! At 8:30 in the morning, the waves were fully lit by the sun, and I love how the wave’s white top reflects on it itself!
Tide Pool Details Triptych
The first blog post of 2023 has the last photos I made in 2022 — in the morning of December 31st, we went for a walk at the beach. It was drizzly and overcast and I didn’t bring the big camera, but as usual, once there some things were too intriguing to not make a photo of them.
