Sahara Sunrise

Marty CohenB+W, Landscape, Morocco, Sahara Desert, Sand Dunes9 Comments

I am creating a series of images of the Sahara Desert from our trip to Morocco in 2013. If you follow me here, you have seen some of these in previous posts. I’m working on completing the series and wanted to share this new image with you. This image, “Sahara Sunrise” was captured early one morning after sleeping outside in the Moroccon Sahara Desert. For me, it demonstrates texture and how the sand is sculpted by the wind. The combination of light and shadow define and accentuate the surface of desert sand.

Share Your Happiness

I donated a print of my image, “Share Your Happiness” matted in an 8×10 frame to the CPA 8×10 Fundraising Exhibition. The opening night reception is this Saturday, September 9th from 5-7 pm in the CPA Gallery at the Sunset Center in Carmel. This is a really fun event to attend and you purchase raffle tickets to vote for the prints you would love to own. The new owner is chosen at random from the tickets used to vote for that image. Food and refreshments will be served. Its free and open to the public. The exhibition runs from September 9 – October 29. Proceeds go to support the mission of the Center for Photographic Art.

From the CPA website:
“CPA is pleased to announce the opening of its favorite annual fundraiser, the 8 x 10 Fundraising Exhibition. This year, on the occasion of our gallery’s fiftieth consecutive year in photography, we offer the work of more than 75 established and emerging photographers from the Monterey Bay area and beyond! These artists have generously donated small, sophisticated works of art to raise funds in support of the Center of Photographic Art’s many programs. A wide range of photographic styles and media will be on display, and each one will go home with a lucky winner. Raffle tickets are $10 each, or in a fantastic deal, a package of seven tickets for $40. There will also be a select group of photographs available for immediate purchase in our “Buy it Now,” section of the exhibition.

Don’t miss this opportunity to view a superb selection of photographs from some of the most exciting emerging and established artists, and the chance to win one of your own!”

Title the Image

Marty CohenAbstracts, B+W, Photography29 Comments

Name Me

Let’s have some fun!
I’m asking for your help in giving this abstract image a title. I’ve tried, but I haven’t come up with a title that I like. So I’d love to hear your suggestions. I will send a print of this image to the person (in the US) whose title I choose in exchange for using it. Leave your suggested title in the comments below.
Thanks… Marty

Addendum: 9-7-17: If you submitted a suggested title for this image, thank you. Unfortunately, I still don’t have a title I like for this image. For those of you who are still wondering what it was, it’s a rusted door hinge from a door with weathered metal plates covering the wood.
