April, 2017, Jim Blythe

April’s exhibition stars a great photographer named Jim Blythe. Full disclosure—he’s my darling husband. He took these photographs October 25, 2014, a beautiful fall day, shortly before Halloween—hence the adorable little girls in costumes. Jim would like me to point out, for some reason, that it was Trotsky’s birthday. To see more of Jim’s work please go to: http://goo.gl/a5ArA

  2. Nice grouping of photos. Captures the ambience. Even the last one seems to fit in the overall scheme…

    Great photos! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love, love these photos. ( and, Trotsky holds a special place in my heart, which biased me a little.) Seriously, putting Trotsky aside, I loved these photos !

    My favorite were the sinuous lines of the roller coasters. Since most of Jim’s work I’ve seen has been abstractions, this is an interesting departure from what I think of as his usual work. To the monsters I say “Ugh!”

    Wow! Just wow.

    Thank you for these photos. Ever since I saw Jim’s photos taken in Mexico were we met, I admire his special photographer’s eye. Whether abstract or picturing reality, Jim gets to the essential, makes you see closer, discover, unveil…

    Wow – some amazing, crazy pictures. I love the close up of the rides. And the roller coaster – NO WAY would I have ever gone on that! In the images of the skeletons and fun-house doors, I can really see Sheila’s art style. It helps me to understand more fully where her images were born. Thanks so much. Love the pics. Jim is so handsome, too.

    Lots of great captures here, Jim. Wonder Wheel is a favorite. Very nice portrait of you, too (self-portrait, I assume).

    Great photos all, Jim, especially the radioactive scraps.
    Photo taken before or after the transformation?

    Impressive art and gallery exhibition concept. I think that homeless guy looks like an actor I recognize. Maybe he was preparing for a role.
