One of the things I am learning as a photographer is that there are no “ugly” things. Through the lens of my camera the entire world is becoming one beautiful thing after another. Even dirt has shape, shadow and form that create interesting imagery. The above piece is just the front end of a bulldozer but upon closer inspection it has a wonderfully curved shape and interestingly detailed teeth. The light and soil create contrast and shadow forming an abstract image that is very pleasing to the eye.
Two massive hooks used on a crane create a dance of beauty in a spectacular blue sky. They seem to hang there weightlessly. Just waiting for their work to begin….
Here in Florida we pass by huge cranes doing their work almost daily. Construction is an ever present condition of our roads and buildings. Usually these machine wouldn’t be considered works of art, but when you take notice of all of their lines and detail, suddenly there is an explosion of intrigue. Bright red lights up the frame with provocative cables leading to…..
No……there are no “ugly” things and that is a “good” thing!

Stone Rock’d that is…..I just cannot seem to get rid of these crabs! Growing up in Florida, crabs have always been a big part of my life. As a child I romped freely on Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota Florida. Crabs would often come ashore and I was completely fascinated. The little fiddler crabs were great fun to watch scurry about, but Stone Crabs are especially interesting because they have one claw that is significantly larger than the other. Funny looking creatures. A gourmet delight in many restaurants they are ecologically sustainability harvested here just for their claws. These guys can regrow their claws so when the fishermen take one it grows back. How cool is that! I found it both amusing and fitting to Stone Rock a stone crab…I love to paint and create and there is no end to inspiration on our planet! The shape for this crab was inspired by a vintage Stone Crab plate…..Learn more about my crab art here:
