Taken at the King William Fair in San Antonio, Tx in around 1995.  Traditional film and processing of high speed film, shot on the street with no special lighting.  I love this shot in the series on the fair and the colorful events.  Stay tuned!

My story:

Each little star is nurtured and protected on the vine-like colored coils of light.  As they mature, and grow a ribbon slowly descend and guide each individual star as its launched into space, the ribbon snaps back, the ribbon curls…., slowly  over time the ribbons unfurl, their tension is dissipated…, they flutter in the space breeze looking for their own individual star somewhere out there shooting across the sky.

North Country


Still north of Toronto, she had never posed before for this kind of photography.  She had a natural way of moving and thinking.  Shortly after I ran head on with a pile of problems, most of my own making, we never got the chance to work together again.  Huge loss.

Arroyo ll


More from the Arroyo series, the idea was to shoot my Watermelon Girl piece.  But I had the girl, a beautiful day, and there was some nakedness happening.  This girl was 19 at the time, and having a real hard time figuring life.  Now as then, she is a sweet woman, and life seems to be settling down now.  Anyway, high speed film, and cross-processed…, I love how the background turned out, and of course the model.
