A River Walk

These are some images from a walk I took yesterday along the Willamette River. Recent high water had flattened the grass into abstract forms and I found them interesting. K

and Now for something completely different

Have just started a new blog of scan art -

Ghost Dance

These are some scans that I have been doing from time to time over the last ten years. Wish I could spend more time working with this technique, but I am always pulled off by other interests. Let me know what you think of them. Kurt

Pinwide Test

Here are a few images shot with the Pinwide lens from Wanderlust Cameras ( It is a wide angle pinhole lens for the micro 4/3 cameras like my Olympus EP-2. Because the micro 4/3 cameras do not have a mirror box, the pinhole can be recessed into the camera body, producing images that are very much like traditional analog pinhole. I am impressed so far, but have not had a chance to really field test this combination. Stay tuned - Kurt

Vintage Moto

These photos were shot last weekend at the OVM vintage motorcycle show in Corvallis, OR. There is something about these old technologies that I am drawn to and I think make really strong images.

Here are some new images. After a week and a half my iMAC is home and healthy. I have been able to shoot some when the weather cleared enough to get outside, but it has been a very wet time here in Oregon since the start of the new year. Hopefully April will be much better. Kurt

Hi all
Have not posted for some time due to my main computer has been in the shop. All my important processing apps are on it so I am reduced to using my old laptop. Here are some images but they are not completed and I will run them through the usual workflow when my iMAC has been returned to good health. Kurt
