It reminds me of an old film reel, a glimpse of how it was back in the 1950s. I tried to take a brand new photograph and make it look old, a bit worn, while maintaining my own contemporary style. It’s a unique look in this growing Classic Collection.
When I’m not running away from God and have decided to submit (surrender) to His will, I am calm, confident, even if things around me are falling apart.

The Staff of JPG Magazine chose this photograph to be added to the Spotlight page of their website. To be honest, I was not sure how Christian-themed images would be received. Still, I felt adding scenes from this Series would be a great way to share my style in presenting the subject.
The goal was to focus solely on the features of the automobile. The color and crispness of the details were greatly enhanced because I want the viewer to feel as though they can touch the vehicle. I love the red color against the edge of black. The chrome grill speaks for itself bringing the entire composition together. A great addition to the Classic Collection.

SERIES | SLIDING GLASS No.9 of 11
Sliding glass. Blinds. A door. Sunlight openings. No rhyme. No reason. Curiosity. Natural light. Eleven clicks. Shutter speed. I found…belief in me.
Everyday I listened Everyday I cried Everyday I failed When I tried To escape from you
Everyday passed by Without shedding a tear Everyday wasn’t freedom But a prison In here
Everyday was shame Everyday was pain Everyday was loveless Even in selfishness
Everyday I lost A little bit more of me On the horizon I see What my life should be ECJ
ABOVE WATER Blue Cypress Park | Jacksonville, FL. January 28, 2013 | 8:11am
The sun was making its way over the horizon. I noticed how the light touched the water. I wanted to increase the beauty of the effect. The water transformed into something strange, mysterious. My imagination takes over. I know what it is in reality: the base of a pier in the St. John’s River. But now, it has a story to tell.
