Marlo in a Massive Hat

Marlo in a Massive Hat

I don’t think I’ve ever taken a photo of Marlo that captures who she is better than this one. We were at my sister’s place over the 4th of July and played dress up. This hat came out and Marlo stole the show. She was giddy for days after this shot...
Wane

Wane

I really wanted to make a Wang Chung thing happen with the title. Then no. I have 6 versions of this image in Lightroom with varying degrees of tweak. I made a copy of the master image and decided to go opposite of what my normal instincts are when working on a...
Capitol Sconce

Capitol Sconce

Shot this back in April when I was starting to fall in love with the 70-200mm. It’s such a beast of a lens; serious, heavy and conspicuous. It screams, “I’m taking serious photos here, people.” This is both good and bad. There are times when...
Fly Like an Eagle

Fly Like an Eagle

I want to. On an afterthought I opened my bedroom blinds and started taking pictures. Caught a great sunset and then caught this plane on takeoff. Plus, Steve Miller Band reference. * * * Affirmation: Smile! Share...
I Burn For You

I Burn For You

Taken from my window. I am lucky. I know. It can be a juggling act to get these shots when I have the girls, as Marlo’s imagination is starting to kick in and she’s upping the boundary pushing. So just as I set up, Marlo will need something. Which...
A Paintbrush Across the Sky

A Paintbrush Across the Sky

Caught this last night. Out of my window. Ridiculous. There are probably a ton of sensor dirt spots all over this image. The Canon 5D is in desperate need of a damn good hiding. I think that’s how you spell it in Lancashire. Right good washing up. Gonna be a...
Storms Will Come

Storms Will Come

It’s always amazing to watch an image I had written off come to life with a little bit of coaxing. The source image was low contrast, washed out and uninspiring. A few tweaks later and boom. * * * Daily affirmation: Laugh hard with longtime friends. Share...
Chasing the Past

Chasing the Past

I keep trying to capture my childhood memories in these images. This one gets close. Something about riding my bike downtown & sitting on a bench sipping a tiny Coke bottle or a Pepsi while the sun hinted at setting. I knew that if I wasn’t home by 8,...
Gaps & Rips

Gaps & Rips

Shot this on my Bear Lake trip in the sunrise light as the tone was changing to the less vivid daylight. I’ve driven past this shed for years and never really noticed all the detail. I love the roof slats and the way that one corrugated section is lifted. The...
