ABSTRACTS

Play, play, play—that is all this series is about. For example, this first image is a reflection in the asphalt of my family and I under an umbrella, one rainy afternoon in Kyoto. The colored lights images in this series came from some holiday lights reflecting off of an Airstream trailer in this sensational way. The images of the curves and ripple of fabric came from a flower girl dress my daughter wore in a wedding. It was hanging against the sliding glass door in my bedroom, and while I was reading on a mat on my floor I just happened to look up, and well, that is what I saw. Other images came from my playing with the shutter speed in my garden during the late evening. All have to so with manipulating the settings on my camera.
