A Self portrait (sorta, kinda). Greetings, world!
In My Head is a sort of autobiographical rumination, constructed of ephemera I have collected throughout my life (photographs, home movies, letters, writings, clips from favorite movies growing up, etc, whatever & whatnot … you know, stuff). It began with my postcard collection, then my movie poster collection, then it got sentimental & nostalgic. Although deeply personal, I must warn viewers that I am a very unreliable narrator.
PHOTO ESSAY !! Hill 88, located in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, in Marin County just north of San Francisco, an old abandoned military radar monitoring base, stunning views on a stunning day: March 3rd, 2018.
Enjoy this mellow loop from Lapsed Time Images!
This is a finished version of the “Cloud Mirror” post from February. Didn’t change much: extended the length of the cloud segments & added the rising spheres. Meditate on this, we are part of something greater !
This is a partial view of a large mural (110 feet wide, 16 feet high) completed in 1947 by art student Rudolph Zallinger for the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History. A few years later, it appeared in LIFE Magazine as a part of the “The World We Live In” series which was later published in book form in 1955. For kids growing up in the 1950s, this was our “go-to” reference on what life might have looked like when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Obviously, thinking about this subject has evolved over the last 60 years, but this retro depiction still charms me. I dream that some day, someone will make a science fiction film where people travel back in time to the age of dinosaurs, and find a world not unlike Zallinger’s “Age of Reptiles”.

High speed water shot with a Sony RX100 IV, enhanced via After Effects. Here’s a common weird effect: if you stare at this loop until the end, when it stops, it will seem to rotate or twist in the opposite direction (even though the image is frozen). Weird, huh?
Here’s a nostalgic photo from 1922: my Mom, my GrandMom & my Great-GrandMom navigate this river known as life (actually, it’s the Little Miami River in Ohio). What more can I say? I owe my very existence to them.
