I love photos and I always have my small camera with me. All those glimpses of a view, or passing moment, vignettes I happen to see, I want to capture. I'm not a photographer, I just love snapshots. Nowadays I like to take photos with possible paintings in mind.
I've had a page on Flickr with some of my photos for a few years. I really enjoy adding to it.
I also have fun looking for vintage images that catch my eye. For many years I've looked through piles of old snapshots at the flea market and ephemera shows. Some jump out as instant favorites. It might be the subject matter or the lighting and values. Here are two that I ran across at the local flea market this month...Christmas in July. All this month I've noticed retailers advertising Christmas in July specials. I love the lighting and tones on these, and what fun to find them together.
