A Stormy Sea

Howdy everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. While I continue to work on the project I was telling you about last week, I decided to take a quick break and go through the archives. Which, to my surprise, contained this photo. I made this image years ago on the far southern coast of California. I’m not sure why I hadn’t taken notice of it earlier. Maybe it’s my current state of mind that brought it out of the archives. It could be that inside me is a creative storm that continues to push breaking waves towards a distant shoreline, slowly changing its features forever. Or, I just forgot to tag with the proper meta data and it slipped through the cracks. Either way, I’m happy I found it!

It will be a short week here as I’m trying to finish a new book on the Fuji X system, but I should have a story or two to share in a few days.

Best of 2013 – Number 2

Henri Dunster

I could on at length about the conversations we had with Henri Dunster. What a life he led. Starting in the 50s as an industrial artist he moved to the Yucatan and began documenting Mayan Architecture. He spent his entire life doing just that. Several months after I made this photograph his passed away. I was honored that they used this portrait of him at his service. It was one of the few photographs ever taken of him.

Best of 2013 – Number 10

San Ignacio Market

Howdy! Well, while my studio is down I thought I’d share some of my favorite photos from 2013. Starting with number 10. The photo was in the little town of San Ignacio, Belize. The Guatemalan farmer, pictured here visit the local market every Saturday to gather supplies for the week.

Reflections Of Trillium

Trillium Lake Mt. Hood

The sub-zero temperatures here in Colorado have frozen the internet. I haven’t been able to upload anything today. I’ve also been battling computer issues. Apparently Apple’s new OS Mavericks doesn’t like my Drobo. Hmm, I’m not sure what is going on with Apple these days. Anyone else having issues with the new OS?

Ok, enough whining….let’s get to some beauty! This is an image I made last year at the 1st annual North by Northwest. I had wandered around Trillium Lake for a while looking far off into the distance at Mt. Hood when I stumbled upon this rock. I loved how the rock and its reflection were analogous to Mt. Hood and its reflection. It was kind of like and SAT question. X is to Y as A is to ? What do you think, does it work or am was I just really tired when I photographed it?

Peering Down The Pier

Scripps Pier

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday. It’s supposed to be getting cold here in Colorado, so I thought I would try to warm in up a bit around here. Scripps Pier is one of my favorite places to photograph. I love the contrast of waves, clouds and the unmoving pier leading you to them.
