My Abstract Photographic Image Making Day Starts at Dawn

I entered this video in a Nikon sponsored competition with the theme of "Your Day." The piece combines stills (representative of my varied shooting that takes place early before I head off to teach) with video footage tracing my photographic journey one morning.


My video was not chosen as one of the 50 Nikon finalists. My colleague Peter Chilton, however, produced a video that made this cut. Please view and rate his video today - it will make you smile!

Wonderful! A new perspective on finding beauty in the seemingly mundane. Now - to use this idea in my sculpture ... .

Thanks, Gus. That's the key: "seemingly mundane."
