On Fire

The Mendon Photo Guild monthly theme was fireworks and I didn't get any good ones from the 4th so my son Shad and I made our own using ignited steel wool. We had a blast despite the molten souvenirs on our head and neck. We were pleased with out first attempt at light painting. We look forward to more of this recklessness in the future.

Mission San Xavier del Bac, Arizona

Had an overnight trip to Tucson for a meeting and ran out to this famous mission that Ansel Adams liked to take pictures of. It was quite dark and I had to use 30 second exposures to get any detail. As I was waiting for these long exposures I figured I'd multi-task and have my "goodnight talk"with Raeghn my wife. While we were talking some stray dogs started barking and cornered me. I softly told Raeghn I had a dog issue, hung up, and started walking slowly backwards towards my rental car about 50 yards away. My heart was going and my mind ran through a large assortemend of endgames. Most of which involved many stitches and a male nurse named Ortega. I made it and headed for home. Not as many shots as I'd hoped for but alive to download the images. Thank heavens for Raeghn's praying me back to the car!

DC Trip in August

So, this is my incomplete collection of photos from my trip to DC. I was very fortunate with the clouds and was giggling with excitement as I ran around the mall snapping away.

Cutler Marsh This Morning

I have been delaying a post, in the name of getting a complete collection of photos from a recent shoot and it is taking too long, so here is a shot from this morning at Cutler Marsh. Very tricky to pull off with the direct sunlight. Used a couple of pictures and some HDR.
