Art Is On The Street

Sometimes the art is on the street, you only have to see it. I wonder what people 100 years from now would think of this scene in the photograph. That seems interesting to me. On Highway 62 in Joshua Tree CA.

Neon Haberdasher

How many of you shop at at Haberdasher or even know what it is? Good place to stop if you suddenly need sleeve garters or a Savoy Fedora. This one has a great neon sign in Portland Oregon. I knew this was a photograph when I saw it!

Naked She Turned From The Train…

Naked, she turned from the train leaving with only a cape from her hair flowing behind her.

The famous bronze statue Kvinneakt created by Norman J. Taylor seemingly turning and leaving the train in Portland Oregon. Kvinneakt means “nude woman” in Norwegian. Often the source of fun and controversy, public art that endures.

Hung Far Low

The Ice, The Bucket and Naked…

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is looking up! I am kidding, it really is doing a lot of good! But glamour model Micaela Schäfer has stepped it up, way up! Naked on the streets of Berlin. My clothes are on but my hat is off to her. Micaela has my respect for being so very adventuresome to do this. So enjoy the video while I am checking out airfare and hotels. This is a screen shot from the video and the actual video is below that.

Kosher Bakery Mural

What an amazingly interesting mural to have on the side outside wall of a Kosher Bakery! I photographed this yesterday on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles. Actually Los Angeles is becoming known as a city of murals. Very Fun!

My New Shelter Watch Dog

My New Shelter Watch Dog

Got this guy at the shelter on Friday. They said he would make a great watch dog. But he doesn’t seem to bark at all. Also not interesting in playing ball. Oh well, we will see how he does at puppy class.

Actually a small part of a mural in Twentynine Palms photographed on a day long photo excursion. “This trompe l’oeil mural tells a story about an artist who fell asleep while painting a mural. Manifested from the artist dreaming about Cattle Days in Hidden Valley, a rodeo bull named Valentine is metamorphosed into reality next to the scaffolding. Named for the white heart shape on his head, Valentine also bears the McHaney gang brand, as if he traveled out of the historical scene in the mural. Waiting for the artist to awake, along with a patient vulture, Valentine will soon have his day.” “Valentine’s Day” by John Pugh.

A Peanuts Route 66

A Peanuts Route 66

Weekends and nice weather. Makes me think of A Route 66 photo excursion. A trip a month ago and a Route 66 wall mural in Needles California. Sure makes a drab beige wall in the middle of town a lot more fun!

Be A Part Of My Art...

I am going to go out on a limb here and say I Love Art too! I am going to be making more of my art and making some plans. It could involve some of you in front of my cameras. If you might be interested, please subscribe to my Blog here. There will be details you might not be seeing anywhere else.

By the way, this was photographed on a photo excursion I did on Route 66 in California between Amboy and Needles.

She Makes It Easy!

I have to apologize. You see Maria Bertrand makes it so easy for me to be a photographer. Just find a fun wall, ask her to stand there and it’s magic!

A Sign Of Appreciation…

A Sign Of Appreciation...

This was an exhibit that gave me a new appreciation for the art of the streets, whether signs or graffiti. I am sorry I did not have the chance to see and photograph it more than once. The “Art In The Streets” exhibit at The Geffen Contemporary at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. “Installations by 50 of the most dynamic artists and will emphasize Los Angeles’s role in the evolution of graffiti and street art, with special sections dedicated to seminal local movements such as cholo graffiti and Dogtown skateboard culture.”

“Art In The Streets”

I truly enjoyed shooting photographs at this show some time ago. The “Art In The Streets” exhibit at The Geffen Contemporary at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. “Installations by 50 of the most dynamic artists and will emphasize Los Angeles’s role in the evolution of graffiti and street art, with special sections dedicated to seminal local movements such as cholo graffiti and Dogtown skateboard culture.”
