Ancient Tile

Ancient Tile

Sometimes it’s all about the details. Walk through the streets of Santa Fe, New Mexico and you’ll come across panels of brightly colored Mexican tile on the exterior of many adobe buildings. Just a bit of  frivolity and whimsy to brighten the mud-brown walls of the city. I particularly like photographing these decorative architectural elements, as they make beautiful microstock images used as “patterns” or “backgrounds”.

Cracks in the Earth

Cracks in the Earth

When I create microstock images, I always keep in mind textures and patterns. Noticing the smallest detail that unexpectedly pops up before you, can lead to a successful stock photo. While hiking one day in an isolated area of New Mexico, I came upon a large area of parched dirt. It was a perfect natural pattern, representative of our drought stricken, global warming environment. I was mesmerized by the deep cracks and photographed the scene from several different angles and perspectives.
