+KP Tripathi yes, I'll get back to the landscapes. I'm sure many people are wondering why I'm uploading color field images like these.

I started doing some painting and wanted to do abstracts. Then I started doing them in Photoshop and I liked doing them so much that I keep doing them!

I'm not sure how much my photo loving followers like them. But I get about 10,000-20,000 views every upload even though few comment or plus them.

Introduction

I am a database and statistical algorithm programmer working in the field of birth defects research at The University of California, San Francisco. I also write science fiction and am fascinated with the rapid advances in genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. In 30 years or so, computers and the software running them will match our intelligence, then surpass it. What then?

In addition to photography, I create abstract, color field art in Photoshop. See my art website.


I'm writing a science fiction story about a possible end to the human species, but not via the typical dystopian future or calamity. It's actually an uplifting story. The first one of two, 300 page books are on my website. The first one is free! More will follow.


I post photos and science oriented topics. I am interested in many things besides photography! Any branch of science, humanities or the arts is fair game for me. My politics are centrist, so you will not get extremist or concrete thinking here.

For my photography, I scour the landscape and seascape looking for the best views at the right moment.

I learned how to do photography by observation and studying the works of the masters of landscape painting, and so can you! 

I have also written a 325 page PDF eBook that will help you to develop the sort of vision that will put a fine work of your own photography on your wall. Go to my photo website below. I discuss how the greatest painters in history created their masterpieces and how modern photographers can learn time-tested methods for creating fine works of art with their cameras. There are no easy answers to developing vision, but fortunately we can learn from the old masters! I also wrote a book about 40 of by best loved photos, with details about each one.
