During our stay in Portland, we visited the Old Town district, the original urban core on the Williamette River. Our day included a stroll along the waterfront, a visit to the Lan Su Chinese Garden (to be featured in a future post), Old Town Pizza, Voodoo Donuts and finally a tour of the haunted Shanghai Tunnels Portland Underground.

I am thankful to have three street photography compositions selected for the nationally juried MEED3: When Photography Ruled the Street exhibition at Gallery 19 in Chicago. Juror Ahmed Ozsever is an interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago. The show opened July 12th and runs through August 2nd.
Part four in this series continues a mix of architectural abstracts, street vignettes and general street photography compositions. Hope you and enjoy, and please share your feedback (positive and negative) on this series. Constructive criticism provides valuable insight to artists as to how the public perceives their art.

I’m starting a street photography and urban landscape series from a recent visit to my hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. Arriving early mornings, before my all day meeting sessions in Uptown, I found a lot of great urban subjects to cover. Late afternoon walks after work also offered up some great street photography opportunities.

It’s time to leave Toronto with this final street photography post. I was fortunate to be in such a cool city with a mix of European contemporary flare, old city charm and diverse ethnic character. An excellent recipe for street photography!
I expect this to be the final post of Toronto architectural abstracts, and following this should be a final street photography post. I’ve enjoyed exploring the pushed HDRish styling used in this series. I hope you have as well.

As a follow up to my early November street photography post, I’ve included here eight additional compositions I curated from my 4 day visit. As you view this series, I hope you find and enjoy the subtle and not so subtle features contained in these compositions.

High above Victoria St in Toronto, I spied this brave fellow painting the metal window framing of a twenty story building. At this point in time, the painter was painstakingly applying primer. So he had to go back over the face of this structure again to apply the final coat of red! I would say these are mashup of architectural abstracts and street photography.
As in much of my work, this post features the unique surfaces and textures resulting from continuous human use and and interaction over the passage of time.
These urban cityscape vignettes were captured outside of Papa Jazz Record Shoppe on Greene St in the Five Points area of Columbia, adjacent to the University of South Carolina. My wife, and her parents, were in town to have a birthday lunch in Five Points with our freshman son Parker at the University of South Carolina. While waiting on our table, I excused myself the cover the local cityscape.
Over past several visits, I had eyed this exterior wall outside of Papa Jazz Record Shoppe on Greene St. Luckily, it was only a block away from our restaurant. This is definitely your typical college town, old school record/CD store. Perhaps next time, I’ll have time to checkout the racks of new and used recordings inside.
