I’m fascinated by fractals. Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales from as huge as the universe to microscopic levels not seen by the human eye. We are all part of an infinity mirror of patterns. The closer I look, the more I see beautiful patterns all around. Some look orderly. Others look chaotic. Nature continually repeats itself. Some of the pictures I take remind me of that.
I was working on location for the TV show “Bones” when I took the photo “Asphalt Bling”. We were filming at a recycling center. This business had stacks and stacks of metal trash organized and compacted into bails and cubes. When I looked down I noticed dark charcoal colored asphalt with scraps of silver metal crushed into it. It was something that appeared to have happened over time. There is a saying that another mans trash is another mans treasure. Being in that recycling business made me feel like I was surrounded by treasure. I took several photos of the trashy treasure around the location that day.
