The conversations of passing formations. 
Halfway through a day long drive, I took a nap in the shade on the bench of a roadside picnic table. Clouds and trains whispered by on distant tracks of thought. Formations toward destinations, some on their way, and some already there.

One of my favorite Mountains, deconstructed and reconstructed in about 20 photos. I love playing with the interaction of shapes, the notan of light and dark. The time spent observing and the possibility of seeing something new. The closeness felt to a place I love. Only in retrospect, is there consideration of meaning, of audience perception, of the expectations within photography. Is this no longer real? Would that question exist in painting? What is real? Are memories only true when viewed in sequence, correctly delineated in the space of time? Can something imagined contain truth? Hemingway talked a lot about capital T truth, and he wrote fiction. Picasso pioneered cubist art, multiple perspectives shown simultaneously, searching for a deeper truth. I certainly look up to them in artistic admiration. (Regardless of their personal issues.) We seem to live in a crazy time when it comes to the collision of agreed upon realities. Perhaps intention is the most important part.

The Great Inland Sea. A favorite of mine from the @Hasselblad book project last spring.

It’s a meta-scape of sorts. A landscape about the landscape, patterns repeated, mountains and waves, altered in scale or frozen in form.

@tomklockerphoto Awsm 👌🏽

Dragons tail. Walking in the woods, you find a small interesting branch. Following along, the branch winds and curves, it appears to be covered in scales of fascination. Your head is down, you focus intently, your excitement grows, the branch grows. You follow faster and faster. Silver spikes, what is this?! A dragon of course. Also, the creative process.

@moonmountainman Wow I love this shot Ben.

Sometimes I’ll listen to an entire song, just to hear one note, but where would that note be without all the others.

@laurazalenga Magical mood stepping from the image right into my room.

In gentle moments of no thing, the quiet emptiness will reveal itself to be quite some thing, to anyone who happens not to be there.

“You must suggest to me reality—you can never show me reality.” ~ George Inness

I bought my first true camera in 2011 while living on Kauai. All that year I’d been grabbing postcards, and cutting pictures out of magazines to use as inspiration for a series of small 5x7in paintings. By the time I reached 50 of the little guys, it was clear I needed to own the whole process. Ironically, photography was so fun, and comparatively straightforward, I never fully went back. These days, the question has changed from how to make paintings like photos, to photos like paintings. No doubt I’ll pick up the brush again someday, but for now it’s hard to tell the difference.
.
If you slide right, you’ll see that original Kauai series grid. Until now, I’ve only shown them to a few people. This was art just for the fun of it. My then girlfriend and I would make tea, put on good music and get lost in a mess of brushes, paint tubes and palettes. I’d finish a picture, add it to the growing grid, enjoy a sense of satisfaction, put them back on the shelf and start dreaming of the next one. Looking back at the final fifty, I tend to see them as a single art piece. A collaged section of life. My knowledge has grown since, but it’s fun to see what still holds true. This kind of exercise will teach you a lot. Yes, about color and light, but also that it’s not about locations, labels, techniques, followers or fads. You’re doing it because you love it, and that’s all that really matters.
