Photographic Story Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Florida – As I stood in the water, waiting for the right light to take this photograph, I was suddenly petrified to see what looked like a torpedo coming toward me! I thought a gator was heading, full speed, toward me and I wondered what I could do. When the wake finally reached me, it turned out to be a playful otter! Boy, was I relieved! He swam around me in a curious fashion, and then went on his way. Analog – Archival Silver Gelatin Photograph Clyde’s silver gelatin black and white images are created using an 8” x 10”, 11” x 14”, or 12” x 20” view camera. Clyde prints his images in his own darkroom on fiber-base paper in a limited edition. The photographs are selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. His images come in sizes from 8” x 10” inches to 5’x 8’ feet. His love of art and nature is seen in the exceptional detail and more subtle textures of his photography.
