Randy’s third “Colors” photo book features Nature

September 24 2016

nature photography book In early March I decided to create my first photo book, Colors of Pittsburgh: North Shore and Lower North Side. It’s my small tribute to Pittsburgh and the historic community that I moved to in 1997. Then came the second book in the Colors series Colors of Pittsburgh:  Downtown and The Strip District, first published in June. Both books, plus this new one, reflect my passions for color and photography.

Now, in September, it’s Colors of Nature: Nature and Man Embracing Nature, previewed below. This third coffee table photography book pays homage to nature around us, including the wonderful variety of textures, shapes, colors and patterns. I’ve also included examples of man’s use of natural forms in art and architecture and our embracing of nature in parks and gardens.

Colors Of Nature is a gallery of 141 colorful, high quality images I’ve gathered over several years, mainly in Western Pennsylvania, and also in New York, Oregon, Colorado, Maine and Washington DC. But I might suggest that the meaning here is more significant than pleasing “eye candy,” considering concern today for the future of the planet.

Here’s the cover of this 112 page book.
