Saguaro Day Dreams

I am at home sick today nursing a winter post-holiday cold. As a form of mental therapy I am thinking about the winter in Arizona, dry, cool, and sunny, with puffy clouds. Last winter, I visited Arizona for a week’s vacation through the Saguaro National Forest and Sabino Canyon. I brought along an infrared camera to emphasize the contrasts in the desert. I think it helped capture the otherworldlyness of the Saguaro Cacti. several of these images were exhibited recently at the Plymouth Cultural Center in the group show Different Perspectives, in which I was honored to participate in. Hopefully in the future I will have more opportunities to exhibit these images in galleries. On days like today when I’m feeling cold and sick, I use my photography as a mental escapes, a portal to day dreams of other lands.

Art Prize Seven

Here are some of my photos from the last weekend of art Prize Seven in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Blakes Hard Cider Tasting Room

It was a brisk and sunny Fall afternoon in Michigan today and I took a trip to Blake’s Cider Mill in Armada with a friend to sample their new hard ciders. The Lions game was on the TV, and the atmosphere of the cider room was busy and fun. The new tasting room is fantastic addition to the quality establishment that Blake’s. I was really impressed by the attention to details of the decor, the music, food, and that the hard cider was DELICIOUS. Cheers!

Super Day and Night

On Sunday September 27 there was a special lunar eclipse of a “super” blood moon. During the day I was out scouting locations for a wedding photo shoot, and at night I was home enjoying the warm night a lunar eclipse from the back yard. Here are a few of the photos that I took that day and that night.

When I photographed the lunar eclipse I did not have a great lens on me nor a great tripod, so I hand-held my camera, and as a result got some really ghostly effects. I like strange accidents like this. It think the images are super weird, and kind of wormy
