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.

For the past several years, I’ve enjoyed the street photography posted here on WP. For the first time, I deliberately shot some street photos while visiting Toronto on business a few weeks ago. Along with the urban landscapes and architectural abstracts, I had a blast shooting in Toronto!
I would be interested in your feedback on my first intentional street photography effort. For the best viewing experience, click on an image to view a high resolution version.
Well, I had a few more compositions left to make up a third post in this series. Well call this my Mostly Monochrome Monday post.
While working on this series, my wife asked me why I would travel all the way to Columbia for a USC Parents Day Football weekend and not include any pictures of our son Parker. I told her I did, he’s in the middle of the student section cheer photo below!
In addition to the local British Invasion cover band, The GB’s, the May Gallery Hop appreciation for 60’s culture included these Go-Go dancers. With these compositions, I continued my study of pop art styling workflows, first featured in my previous post.

The May Gallery Hop featured live music from the GB’s, a 60’s British Invasion band based out of Winston-Salem. For this post, I wanted to come up with a pop-art photo styling technique. Over the last several days, I experimented with several filters in Filter Forge 7 and came up with a cool mash up starting with the Local Norm and Cold Fear filter presets.
Thanks for taking time to visit my photo blog! Have a great week!
