Faves from Mac’s camera

August 16, 2010


One of the things I loved most about Mac was his incredible eye for detail.  He sure had a knack with a camera.  I thought I would kick off Birthday Week with a tribute to Mac’s work and what I felt it reflected about him.  All shots are from his Flickr account or PHB.


One of the first things I noticed about Mac’s artistic style was his affinity for clean lines.  This was really indicative of his minimalist style overall, whether it was in art or writing.  He always seemed to resist the flashy, the garish and convoluted.  I really liked that.





I loved it when he went for walks in the city and came back with pictures!!  Didn’t he just have the craziest ability to find beauty in the most random, unseeming places?!  Seriously, his whole blog was full of hidden awesomeness, just like these pictures:


"Ready, aim . . ."


"Make the call"



Mac enjoyed getting close-up, too!  He was clearly an individual who saw beauty in the details.

"Elfin dancer"

"Fountain (detail)"



"Martian mannequin"

"Mechanical eye"

Last, but definitely not least, you could count on Mac to show you we had visitors everywhere.

"All-seeing robot"





Miss you a lot, Mac!
