– life on the streets of a big little city on the Gulf Coast –

WELCOME

Thanks for visiting my new street photography site.

After four years of criss-crossing the USA 7-8 times, living in motels and pretending to be a wildlife photographer, I have settled briefly here on Florida’s Gulf Coast to rejuvenate and replenish.

St. Pete Pier

There are no National Parks with bears or wolves in the vicinity so I am reduced to stalking people through a maze of alleys and sidewalks. This site is an experiment to see if I can survive as a street photographer.

If you see a sneaky-looking bearded guy in a bush hat with a camera who seems out of place in civilized society, just smile.

  2. Congratulations on your knew sight. I think having a separate place to showcase your street art is a great idea. (I’m going to keep an eye out for man with camera next time I wander down to Florida!)

  4. It did not take you long to build up a fan base.
    I seem to remember the same happening in Yellowstone.

  5. Your Street work reminds me of Cartier-Bresson, now I’ll have to have a look at him too and see if memory serves…..it’s the strong contrast I think of the black and white, the whammo here I am with unmoveable assurance, and the distance from your subjects and the borderline dangerous, the war between intensely personal and cool don’t care in every photograph.

    • That top photo does look a bit like HCB, hadn’t noticed that. Thanks for the comment, and for following, and for all your priceless observations!

    • Thanks, I notice a pic from Corkscrew on your site. I used to be a member there. And was your “long pier” shot taken in Naples? I lived there for 20 years.
