Keeping Busy

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve had my camera with me for a few outings…

An engagement session (more finished photos to come after Krystle and Roman make their selections). This shot was an idea I had that I thought worked out pretty well!

TAFY’s recent dance recital (that’s my daughter enjoying her time on stage):

In the next couple weeks I’ll have a camera with me on a work trip to Fairbanks (hoping for some good weather in Denali Park), and then a Bar Mitzvah!

Oh, and I almost forgot, I did capture (and finally cull and finish) photos from the 2017 Wearable Arts back in February. Here is a quick shot Seanna O’Sullivan (she’s amazing) took of me in action near the runway. Fun show!

Hello Again

I’ve been away from the blog for what feels like a long, long time. I’ll be starting to post a few to try to catch up and get back to the place of regular updates now that life has started to level out. With a baby on the way (our first), a job change, a move, car purchases & travel, our plates have been full. Finally though, my shoulders are starting to drop.

So, to tide you over, here’s a selfie of two remarkably busy individuals who are excited about life and our future.

Long Day

Something caught my attention here. Maybe it's the beauty in spite of the telephone poles & cell towers & sirens & abandoned vehicles? #feelingcontemplative #leavingwork #longday

A Youngster

As I was driving along the road, in the distance I saw what looked like a cat just sitting and relaxing in my lane. As I came closer I realized it was a baby porcupine ambling for the woods. The sun had just set, but there was still enough warm light in the sky to capture some images of him… Take a look:

Starlight, Starbright

My friend Herbert Law of Minute Sixteen is in town, and invariably, we have insanely mis-matched schedules. The other night he invited me out to join him and a couple others to photograph the  Perseid Meteor Shower which came “flying through” (haha) this month. And while I had such great intentions to connect before the night was through, it turned out that another dear friend, Stacy LaMascus was going to leave town for a year at school… In this case, the mini going-away party trumped the meteor outing… But as we hung out and the ladies took a dip in the hot tub, I put my gear to use in the back yard to capture a few starlight photos.

Take a look.

The first image here has a shooting star. I also like the framing of the house and surrounding trees. It feels like we’ve got a portal to another world!

This one is (I believe) a satellite moving through the night sky. The milky way really stands out in here.

I noticed that the yard, lit by a light from inside the garage, had some interesting features contrasted against the starry sky. Fun!

See these images at the 2012 Fine Art Gallery.


Happenstance Macro

I had a meeting tonight that fell through, and so in the next 15 minutes or so I explored the undeveloped back lot of some condos… I love to look. I love to explore. Tonight I found a Daddy Long Legs and MAN, are they UGLY!  Plus, while photographing a pretty little buttercup, a fly happened to land on it for my enjoyment. It was great, except all of these are handheld and with a 200mm macro lens so I spent a lot of time trying to breathe slowly and not move a muscle (while wobbling in my crouched-to-the-ground position.) I don’t know how those sharp shooters get so well trained to slow their bodies… Maybe it’s just practice. Anyhow, take a look:
