I've recently fallen in love with minimalist photography. The visual simplicity doesn't lack emotional complexity. Often I feel like the less going on in a photo the more impactful it truly is. These are some shots I took walking around my neighborhood in Seattle (hence the clouds).
I was walking around Capitol Hill the other night with a friend of mine and we happened upon this massive game of public dodgeball. There must have been thirty or more people playing. I snapped this quick glitch while we walked by. Both the original and the edit are included so you can see what I did to modify the glitch art photograph.

So I'm involved in this discussion on one of the glitch art groups on Flickr. This is a sort of "hardcore" glitch art group with very very specific rules as to what is considered glitch or not. Needless to say my glitch art panoramas are not considered glitch enough and I'm cool with that. It's just interesting to think that there is a metric by which to measure glitch. This is glitch while that is not. It really reminds me of the way art changes and shifts over the centuries. Realism and romanticism and surrealism and cubism and modernism and post modernism and post post modernism. Each movement causing upheaval and rejection by the academy or the socialized norms of the time. This is art! No it isn't! Yes it is! Well maybe! Ok! That's art. How dare you!?! What is glitch? How can we define it? An error? A malfunction? Something not operating as intended? But what if it creates something beautiful? Something majestic? Something like us? Our universe? Could this all be by chance? A perfect execution of random events? The odds are against us. So many possibilities for failure. Yet here we are. We are the glitch. A perfect glitch. A glitch by nature.
This morning I underwent corrective surgery for a deviated septum. It went well without complications and I was in and out in about 2 hrs.
The pain, however, was intense and I wanted to take some glitchographs visualizing how I was feeling. This is why I love glitch art panorama photography.
It doesn't just freeze moments in time, but rather captures the nuances of the moment. The motion of my hand, changes in perspective, lighting shifts. Its more video than photography.

I snapped this glitchograph today on my way to work. The original glitch is included in the post so you can see how I've tweaked the image. It's more of a macro panorama of some flowers but hey, its a pretty shot anyway.

I hiked up most of Mailbox Peak today. Most of because 1/2 way up it started hailing and 3/4 way up it was blizzard conditions and snow up to my shins. Not quite Vibram Five Fingers weather...
I did take these glitch art photographs though. This is a small selection and the rest are going up on Flickr.

I'm starting a new photography series I'm calling #dailyglitch. Every day I'll shoot a glitch art panorama and post it to my flickr account. I'll also post it here too.
Hey world. I'm trying out the photo blog to keep up with some of my activities around Seattle. Currently I'm shooting with a Panasonic GH3 and primarily a 20mm f/1.7. I have a few other speciality lenses like a pinhole, Holga, c-mount, minoltas. I also shoot a lot with my iPhone 5.
Shooting street photography is an interesting experience. It teaches me to pay attention to details that might otherwise have gotten looked over. I like the pacing of it. You don't get three hours in a studio. Just whatever crosses your path. A shot comes and goes in an instant. You have to be ready. Focused. Zen. At least that's what it is for me.
I'd love feedback on the site and the photography. Check out my Flickr to see the full sets and some of my older work.
