2012 WALL CALENDAR
8.5 by 11 inches
Whether you are seeing summer slip away to be replaced by fall, or are in the part of the world where the first signs of spring are promising an end to winter, it is probably equally hard to consider that 2011 is more than half over and 2012 just around the corner! To ease any distress you might feel at the cruel and inevitable march of time, I’ve prepared a new 2012 calendar, now available exclusively here on my website, in a full-size wall format, suitable for hanging, and a smaller desktop version.

Thanks to a customer who purchased one of my images of a snowbound bicycle and then inquired whether I had any more images of bicycles, I’ve been spending the past few months finding and capturing bicycles on film in interesting and sometimes amusing situations. I am not a rider of bicycles, and approach them with the eye of a poet and photographer, not an athlete or a commuter attempting to keep myself or the planet healthy.
SEPTEMBER : CROSSING THROUGH
I’ve always been attracted to objects that owe their particular shape and in fact their existence to a specific human need, and how strange they look when humans are not around. Bikes especially seem particularly odd, and even a bit forlorn, when they are at rest and alone. This sense of expectation and abandonment is what I was drawn to in the photographs collected into my calendar. The bikes in these images all have a full past and a promising future but seem a little lost in the present moment of my taking their picture. I choose to read into their suspended animation a message of hope. They seem to say “the readiness is all.”
AFTER THE STORM - perhaps for the 2013 calendar?
One final note: I’ve had some inquiries lately about images that appear here on my blog but have not appeared in my shop as printed and mounted items for sale. As a rule, I am always willing to do custom work for anyone interested in a print of one of my images. Don’t be shy! Please feel free to contact me and we can work out a fair price based on size and format and whether you’d like your photo shipped already mounted or as a loose print. My shop will be undergoing more updates as the gift-giving season approaches, so stay tuned!
