Where Have All The Graveyards Gone?
Photograph - Digital Photography
Gone to flowers, every one. The Galveston City Cemetery, on the Texas gulf coast, erupts with a carpet of Coreopsis, Gaillardia and other spring wildflowers every spring, brightening the weathered countenance of an old elevated grave vault. The vault is labeled, "Chas. W. Schafer, 1886," suggesting the structure survived the great Galveston hurricane of 1900 as well as Hurricane Ike a few years ago.
Gary Holmes, photographer: I have always loved to photograph nature, landscapes, abstract, and other found objects of interest. I prefer the challenge of trying to capture the unpredictable spontaneity of things and events as they are occurring. I started with a Kodak Brownie as a child, but entered the world of real photography with a Canon AE-1 in the late 1970's. I have successfully sold a number of my photographs on Fine Art America, and have been recognized in international photography venues. Poster sized prints of three of my photographs were recently installed in a new medical clinic building in a major Texas medical center. My photo, "Blue Norther," was selected by the nonprofit Texas Bluebird Society for its 2010 membership announcements. My most requested photo, "Rowers' Arc," was selected as an Editors' Choice on 500px, as well as a 5-star Editor's Choice designation in Camerapixo's Hot Shots photo magazine, Volume 4 (http://issuu.com/camerapixo/docs/hotshots-camerapixo-04/1). It has now been published on page 121 in a new book, Camerapixo Photography Awards, Volume 01 (http://camerapixo.com/publications/photography-awards-01).
