The Manifestation of Knowing

Ancient Temple of esoteric revelations.

Upon occasion I allow myself to delve into what I think of as the greater imagination. This former military battery is transformed into a temple housing secret knowledge inside its deeper chambers.

Inner chambers host messages from their ancestors in pictographs that have yet to be translated.

About Thomas Bethune

THOMAS ALLEN BETHUNE I have been interested in photography for most of my life. I started taking photographs with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera when I was eight years old. My early subjects were trains and engineered structures as well as landscapes and family portraits. My interests and vision have matured, but the subjects that catch my eye continue to be of the same genre as my earliest visions. A neighbor man had a darkroom, and he showed me the basics of camera operation and darkroom processing. I took courses in art and photography in high school and college. I worked as an apprentice to a commercial wedding and event photographer, and I was in charge of a recreational dark room while I was in the military. As an adult, I earned a bachelor’s degree in photography from Humboldt State University. My experience with film formats included 35mm, 2 ¼”, and 4”x 5”. I exhibited at galleries near my home in Arcata California, and in Santa Fe New Mexico. All my current work is digital. I am scanning many of my legacy negatives and slides. I sometimes process and print the scanned negatives. I often post them on my blog. I process all of my prints with archival media. An award winning fine art photographer living in a redwood forest. BA Photography Director, Redwood Art Association, Eureka CA Co-curator, F Street Foto Gallery, Eureka CA

    Wow, Thomas, “add supported”! How’d you arrange that? Did you need a set number of followers?

    Regardless, well done. And, another year woundedly flits and flutters, flutters and flits on its way as the shutters continue to capture bits and pieces of one reality or another.

    Love you
