Shakespir Edition

Preface

The artistic process of capturing a still image of what is in the mind’s eye on a two -dimensional surface will always be fascinating to me, whether through the medium of painting or the medium of photography. In my career as an artist I have simultaneously pursued both but have only exhibited my painting. As an amateur photographer, it has been my practice to always take my camera on my daily walks and document imagery that visually speaks to me.

Introduction

Daylight is too easy. What I want is difficult: the atmosphere of lamps or moonlight.

--- Edgar Degas

I have been taking early morning walks in the downtown area of Hattiesburg for decades, observing the environment through my mind’s eye.

On my early morning walks on October 16 and 17 of 2016, I was amazed at the light show performance as the moonset met the sunrise. At first, the moonset was the only source of light, which in some cases was augmented by artificial light sources. Toward the end of my walks, the light of daybreak and later sunrise merged with the moonlight before the large moon neared the horizon line and finally disappeared.

I have selected 15 of these images for this e-book.
