The renovation of the Marketplace Design Center, scheduled to begin later this year, would remove Wyland’s “East Coast Humpacks” mural from Philadelphia.Wyland painted his Philadelphia mural while on a whirlwind tour in 1993. Over 17 weeks, he painted 17 murals from Portland, Maine, to Key West, Florida — including the Philadelphia mural, dedicated by Ed Rendell on July 19th.It was the first mural that I saw as I traveled into Philadelphia and my first mural photographed..I hope that it doesn't go....
The camera makes you forget you're there. It's not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much." Annie Leibovitz..That is soo how I feel about my photographs and my photography..I've always loved photos and what they mean to people...they're the essence of the moment..Never to be quite the same again.I started using photos while working in my yellow pages advertising career...taking my customer's photos and pictures of their businesses and then I came up with the idea of using them as 'fill' instead of those inane generic ads....The company that I worked for, Central California Directories, used them for years in the Flagler County Directory and Shopping Guide that was published annually...one of my first was of my niece, Erika , running along the beach in her bathing suit as a little girl....Well, she just turned 22 and she's married now, but she's still that little girl to me...and my photographs just keep evolving!!!! Especially the ways that I can take my photograph and transform it..I hope that you enjoy my works and find something that you love!
