A long-term project – WHAT I FOUND BEAUTIFUL – is a collection of images I happened upon, fortunate to have my camera near as I experienced them. These images are meditations – quiet observations – reflections on a pool surface – the wing of a jet landing at Kennedy Airport at sunrise on the night flight from Los Angeles. The pictures are often highly personal – sunrise reflected in the windows of my art deco apartment in Hollywood – a dramatic cloud formation over the pool of our house in Palm Springs.
In my travels I found layers of fog and clouds over the ocean framed by the colonnade at San Simeon. At the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the windows in the ceiling of the atrium created abstract compositions viewed from the main floor. In London, the juxtaposition of the Lloyd’s Building with Leadenhall Market created an architectural duet between these neighbors built a century apart. The world is filled with visual delight. I’m often charmed by what I find.
