Michael Wells

michael wells is a photographer whose portfolio spans from interiors to portraiture to landscapes to cityscapes to other interesting work like the border projects… i got lost in it for quite a while, i tell you. i am particularly drawn to his interior shots that are so richly hued, and the same can be said for his portraits which are also magnificent. go have a browse.

rainy day special

a series i love so much i actually have to hold myself back from making more. trying to keep these relatively few and far between because i know that if i didn’t they would become boring. it would be like eating pancakes every day. where’s the fun in that? pancakes are so good because you only have them now and then – usually when it’s raining. apparently only a south african / afrikaans thing … or … something only my mom did? consequently not a rainy day goes by without the thought of pancakes now. anyway, i think you get it. colour comparisons = pancakes in this roundabout analogy.

Portrait / Portrait

i’ve been looking for a reason to do another one of these posts. truth is they’ve been featured on some of my favourite blogs lately, and i’ve received many kind emails from readers saying how much they like them. man, people on the internet are nice! so i dipped into my folders of saved vintage photos (all from doctor macro) & paired them with portraits that i love. ended up making way too many for one post… more to come later.

attribute portraits

i bookmarked these portraits by jelmar geertsma before i even had the blog, and by some happy circumstance rediscovered them this week when i was trawling through old favourites on a mission to find something else (don’t you love it when that happens?) things organised neatly and portraiture all in one = yes. jelmar explains,
