Three poblano peppers I picked from the remnants of our garden yesterday. They had an inner glow in the late afternoon sun, and reminded me of the great photos of Edward Weston (, which inspired me to set up some portraits. In no way do these measure up to his works, but I think they stand on their own merits.

It was so hot all summer that our peppers would not even set fruit until the past month or so. I look forward to stuffing these beauties for chiles rellenos in the next few days.
Gary Holmes, photographer: I am an opportunist photographer of nature, landscapes, abstract, and other found objects of interest. I prefer to capture the spontaneity of things and events as they are occurring, and rarely photograph staged subjects other than portraits. Although I have been a photographer for decades, I have only been posting them for others to see since about September 2012. Although I will continue to post on 500px, I have begun to focus upon my site ( on Fine Art America, which offers a wider range of printing and mounting options not currently available on 500px.
