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 (http://www.edward-weston.com/), 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 (gary-holmes.artistwebsites.com) on Fine Art America, which offers a wider range of printing and mounting options not currently available on 500px.
