|Photographer Roger Isabell of La Quinta, CA, with his "Pink Mary Rose."|
He takes digital photos, isolates the parts of the images he wants to keep, and either prints a single gorgeous bloom (like the one above) or combines them into incredible arrangements that you would swear were oil paintings. Go to his website, http://rogerisabell.com/index.cfm , and prepare to be blown away!
I fell in love with the "Pink Mary Rose," above, and bought a smaller matted print. While I'm here on vacation it's going to stay propped up in front of my television, because I'd much rather look at it than a TV screen.
|Photographer Steve Keating of Port Orchard, WA, with his aerial landscapes.|
When he said his work is "low-level aerial," I mistakenly thought he meant from an airplane flying at low levels. What he actually does is raise his camera on a telescoping pole up to about 50 feet. He says he likes panoramic shots because that's the way we naturally see the land around us. Take a look at his website, http://steve-keating.com/index.html, for some more incredible examples.
AND, he just opened an exhibit back in Gig Harbor at Brix 25, where you can see his work in person and have a fine dinner.
More desert dispatches coming soon!
Have a colorful day
