One of my favorite movies is Rainman.
I don’t know if you remember, but throughout the movie Raymond is taking random photos. These are shown near the end of the movie during the credits. I have always found them quite fetching.
So in honor of such photos, I offer the following photos which I did not intend to take, but I thought they were intriguing nonetheless.
There is no such thing as an accidental picture.
Rain is the adhesive for falling leaves, creating mechanical trees.
I am indebted to trees.
Not simply because they supply the air I breathe, but because they literally give their lives that I may create crafts of beauty and grace.
I originally started this photo series as a way to notice the intimate details of life, the small things as it were. It has been almost exactly a year since the last posting. Yet, whether I post or not, the practice has definitely changed the way I see the world.
“The trees of the fields shall clap their hands…”
And their bright leaves fall.
KMLS Photoshop is what I call my dabblings in photography and photo art.
This past year I have been working on several changes with regards to my photography.
First, as part of my decision to end my relationship with Amazon, I migrated my photos from Amazon back to my Flickr account which took a LONG time. Currently, I am organizing my Flickr collection so stay tuned as more photos become publicly available.

Secondly, I have begun contributing photos to Foap for greater visibility and to make my photos available for purchase.
My Foap Portfolio
Thirdly, I now also have a gallery on ImageKind. Here you can not only purchase my photos, but buy them as canvas or framed prints in a variety of lovely designs!

Any comments and suggestions are most appreciated.
(The following is a reprint of an article I posted in 2008 which features photos and commentary from a visit to the Washington Auto Show. I will repost these reports over the next successive Saturdays as a KMLS PhotoShop feature).
The automobile has always been a place for the human to express his/herself, from bumper stickers to air brush masterpieces. The 2008 Washington Auto Show has some pretty amazing representations of customization and car art. The following are some of the examples:
Pretty impressive art, huh? Such work speaks for itself. I as the photographer am only the documenter. Here is a roadster that was next door to the funny car:
And those flames, who can stay away from flames, and on a Fairlane no less.
I’ll leave you with a very interesting car called “Hip Hop.” This baby was decked out with beautiful art on the outside and included an amazing sound system on the inside complete with a DJ system so you can make your own grooves and have your own party wherever you go.
Tomorrow will be my final reflection. See you then!
