WASHINGTON OAKS 1 © 1989
Palm Coast, FL
Photographic Story Washington Oaks Gardens State Park, Florida – I had been told there were rocks on the beaches in North Eastern Florida that made the beaches look like the west coast of the United States. I found that hard to believe. Every beach I had seen in Florida was simply white sand. I decided to check out Washington Oaks and see for myself. Sure enough, the beach had wonderful configurations of rocks scattered around it. The scene took me back to what it was like when I lived in California, except the water is warmer! I had a wonderful time photographing. 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. Each photograph is individually hand printed in the darkroom and will vary based on factors such as artist preference, chemistry and temperature. The image displayed on the website is a digital scan of the original negative and should be considered a representation of the printed version of the art.
