Photo of the Week - August 1, 2011

The Very Large Array on the San Agustin plains, 50 miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. These 27 radio antennas are constructed into a "Y" shape and are considered the world premier astronomical radio observatory. Each antenna is 82 feet in diameter. The area is open to visitors and they allow you to walk right out under the structures. This image was taken in September 2010. The 1997 movie "Contact" with Jodie Foster, Matthew McConaughey & Tom Skerritt was filmed here.

Photo of the Week - July 25, 2011

This weeks image was taken south of Santa Fe, New Mexico last summer, at the Eaves Movie Ranch. We had taken a group of students there that were attending a week long workshop with Eloquent Light. The storm clouds in this image are nothing compared to the ones behind me. Within a few minutes of this shot, the heavens opened up on us, as we ran to take shelter in the old saloon building on the set. Wonderful place to shoot if any of you might be interested in the future.

1941 Kansas City Monarchs Negro League team

Going through some of my old sport collection and ran across this team picture of the Kansas City Monarchs of the old Negro American League from 1941. Far right is Satchel Paige, Hall of Fame pitcher. One of his quotes: "Age is a question of mind over matter......if you don't mind, it doesn't matter".

Blacksmith Shop, Vista, CA 2010


Taken at the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum in Vista, CA. There are 55 acres of old tractors, steam engines machines, trucks, wagons, farm equipment, and just about anything related to the old mechanized world of the early to mid 20th century. The above image was taken in one of the many building on the property. This is a working blacksmith area that I thought screamed Black & White.

Photo of the Week - July 11, 2011

Taos Tipi, New Mexico, 2010


This image was taken early evening in July 2010, during one of Northern New Mexico's monsoon storms. There was just enough sunlight left to add some light to the tipi and the tops of some of the bushes around the area. I just love the threatening storm clouds, and the way Black & White brings out the details. If you are interested in one of these prints, or one my many other "Photo of the Week" images, click HERE.

Photo of the Week - July 4, 2011

Kolob Cabin, Zion National Park, Utah - 2008


This image was taken in a less traveled area of Zion National Park in Utah. It's located along the road going back to Kolob Reservior, and was taken around Thanksgiving in 2008. The entire higher area of Zion looks very similar to this photo......lots of aspen trees. Early fall would be a wonderful time to see the change of color. I was going through some of my older images looking for shots around the St George area in setting up a possible 2012 workshop through Eloquent Light. We are contemplating expanding the workshops out of New Mexico, and this is one area we are looking in to. If you have any interest in this future workshop, let me know. As we determine times and dates, I will send you the information. If you are interested in purchasing this print, or one of my other "Photo of the Week" images, click here.
