“The birds on Midway are like messengers, the canary in the coal mine. When the canary dies, the miners don’t run over and try to save the canary— they receive the message that bird just gave its life delivering, and then act quickly to save themselves”

There’s just something fascinating about roots and trees

Posted in Creative Process, photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2010 by Tim McGuire Images

I’m constantly drawn to trees and roots. They just fascinate me with their shapes and sometimes alien forms and textures.

I’ve been walking by these for years when going climbing at Exit 38. I finally stopped to take some HDR photos last weekend. I also stopped to photograph this tree stump which I see as a metaphor for the struggle between man and nature or maybe better, mans attempts to dominate nature…

Tell me what you think.

Urban Trees / More HDR Testing

Posted in Creative Process, Creativity, photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 11, 2010 by Tim McGuire Images

For the last two or three months my wife and I have been getting up early 3-4 times a week to go downtown (Seattle, WA) to workout at Club Zum.  Every morning as we walk from where we park the car to the gym I would notice these beautiful tree forms amongst the downtown buildings… these organic / natural shapes contrasting with the man made hard edged buildings surrounding them.  I find it to be an interesting juxtaposition and had been meaning to make some photographs of them which I finally did.

These are some of the images I made of the trees and buildings last week while trying out this HDR photography technique. If they look a little fuzzy click on the image again to see the full resolution image.

Addicted to Cracks

Posted in Creativity with tags , , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by Tim McGuire Images

Over the last year I’ve been attracted to photographing cracks in sidewalks, streets, walls… whatever.  Here are a few of my newest “Cracks In Pavement” series.

To me the images are about urban decay or possibly the nature of life… or the life of nature… even in those inanimate objects like a concrete sidewalk.  They have a life too. Everything deteriorates.

Tell me what you think.
