    what a strange person in the 3rd. love the 4th!

    the owl one is pretty weird.there’s somethin about him,i don’t know,he looks poised…

  • randy

    almost every photographer featured on this site seems occupied with landscapes, animals, or the characteristics of nature. Is that your personal taste booooom? Or are those the themes of this generation of photographers?

    • i guess the things you are noticing are simply my personal taste – what else would you like to see featured (what else is there to photograph, other than people, animals, and landscapes)?

      • randy

        i enjoy your choices much, so it’s definitely not criticism. I think photography has shifted from people as the main focus, to nature as the main focus. Or is that just a stupid observation

      • it’s not a stupid observation! i think there is definitely a certain style of photography i like to post here more than there is a shift away from portraits of people in general.

    the last one looks like a face :)

    That owl interaction would have changed my life.

  • Daniel

    I agree that there is a trend among the photographers posted here. However, the same can be said about the artists. There must be several artists on here that I swear could have posted more art under a different name. Artists draw inspiration off one another and it shows. Nothing bad about it at all. This is just where our generation of art is heading.

    Cool photos. I love the owl.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
