Details

1931 Ford Model A Truck, Cowee, NC  -  2016

When photographing cars I have learned to go for detail shots to avoid distracting backgrounds. Seldom do I find a vehicle situated with an appropriate background that not only doesn't distract, but also adds to the look of the photo. So I frame tight, like on the cute little rear end of this A Model pick-up. Check out those shapely fenders!

Contrasts

Maple In Front Of The Orange Peel, Asheville, NC  -  2011

I made this photo in April, 2011, so this tree is a little bigger now. The bright green of the new spring leaves against the rusty metal facade is what caught my eye that day. The colors are almost exact opposites on the color wheel. I thought the contrast of textures was interesting too.

I can dream, can't I?

Fall On The Parkway, Avery County, NC  -  2010

I know we've still got several weeks of summer heat to go, but I've already got Fall on my mind. I'm lusting after that first morning when I step outside, and the humidity is down, and the temperature is in the 50s. Yes, my favorite season is when the air is filled with colorful leaves and footballs!

My Favorite Wild Flower

Turk's Cap Lily With Butterfly, Haywood County, NC  -  2010

With the abundance of wild flowers in the region where I live, it's hard to pick an absolute favorite. Stick a gun to my head, and I'll say the Turk's Cap Lily gets the nod. I happened to find this sample with a butterfly on it along the Blue Ridge Parkway in 2010. Sometimes you just end up at the right place at the right time.

A Different Perspective

Up Against It, Asheville, NC  -   2016
(Click on photo to enlarge.)

One of the most photographed objects in Asheville is the British double-decker bus that serves as the residence of Double D's Coffee and Desserts. I wanted something a little different than the standard postcard shot from across the street, so I came up with this.
