Abstract Kinda Day
Today is feeling like an abstract kinda day; so, I thought I’d just shoot whatever was sitting around that struck me and make it feel kinda abstract.
I made a comment game out of it on Flickr to see who could guess. About 10 comments in calanan won bragging rights with the first correct [...]

Abstract Kinda Day
We Be Jammin’
Back to posting some concert shots for a bit. I’ve got to get my head into the upcoming tour project!
John Menzano is a great musician and performer. I’ve enjoyed seeing him perform lately with Donny Osmond, though I know he plays with a wide number of acts. I believe he is on the [...]

I’m Watching You
As my wife and I were taking a Sunday morning stroll through a nearby park on our recent vacation, I spotted a gaggle of geese that included a small family of goslings. I slowly worked my around to an angle that worked with the bright sun and put on my 70-200 so [...]

When I first started taking some flower photos, I had it in my mind I needed to wait for them to be fully open to capture a worthwhile image. That view has definitely change! Though you tend to get more splendor in colors with a full flower, I find I really [...]
This girl was having her photo taken by her brother. I took this photo and then asked if I could snap a few others. She was very happy to oblige. I’d really like to get back in to doing a bit more outdoor portrait work as I enjoy capturing the poses and expressions. I need [...]
Hyacinth & Pansies
The Photowalking Utah group was out again this weekend, this time visiting the Thanksgiving Point gardens in search of some flowers and whatever else we can find. Prior to the event there was some concern expressed about the cold weather causing the flowers to be late in blooming, but the group went [...]
This particular flower, the Stargazer Lilly, always holds special attention for me because it is my sweethearts favorite flower. Not only is it a beautiful flower, but the fragrance is incredible.
This particular flower sits in the gardens just across the street from the SF Museum of Modern Art.
