Urban Naturals series expands, becomes another series

I am calling this series Rovinato, Italian for "ruined". I wanted it to be Lenti Rovinato, which should mean "ruined lens", but in talking with some of my artist friends, that seemed a bit much for a name.

It started with the same idea as Urban Naturals, mixing photos of urban texture with close-up photography of items from nature.

In early March, I thought some of the bare trees around my hometown might look nice with this treatment, and that expanded to include the old historic buildings in downtown Wilmington.

One of the great things for me about this series is that it opens up my schedule for photography. With my scenic photography, I am usually looking for a time of day with good light and a good sky. With the Rovinato series, I can shoot on otherwise bad days.

So far the series is 24+ images, available in 5"x5", 8"x8" and 12"x12". 16"x16" will be available when this series goes live on ImageKind.

For now, these are available on my Etsy shop.
