On a photo shoot at the end of 2016, I started out the day with a preconceived notion of what I was going to photograph. My photo buddy, Rob,  and I were heading to Old Town Alexandria in Virginia during the holiday season. I thought I would focus on the holiday which I did, and also shoot some photos of the history.

As we parked in an historic neighborhood, our goal was to walk to the water about a half a mile away. Rob began shooting immediately, focusing on geometric shapes. I slowly saw what he was doing, and started to look at the houses and the neighborhoods differently.

We photographed for over 3 hours, from cloudy to sunny, from rain to blue skies. We made it to the water, but did not spend much time there. The residential streets were much more interesting. We also encountered much more foot traffic from tourists in the commercial areas.

Out of that shoot, along with my previous post of Ellicott City, a series of images called “Receding Lines” took shape. Playing with my new full frame camera-Nikon D750- which is an amazing piece of technology and photographic equipment, I created a surprising series that even I am enjoying! All artists are critical of their work as you may know.


Each perspective, and whether the photo is in color or black and white, evoke a thoughtfulness on the part of the photographer and viewer.

    Hi Kathi,

    These shots really make you concentrate on the geometry – really good. You have such a ‘broad’ eye.
