The New Navajo Falls at Havasupai in the Grand Canyon.

Supai

This is the New Navajo Falls on the Havasupai Indian Reserve in Grand Canyon, Arizona. I’m going there again on August 1-5th with a group of 19 people. I go every year and invite friends and family. This year will be my 7th annual trek down there. This is simply something I’ve been doing almost every year since 2008. After all, Havasupai is my second home and as you can see from the picture above, you know why…

Big Bend National Park in Texas

I believe this photo was taken on the boundary of Big Bend National Park in Texas. Therefore it is protected speech and doesn’t require a commercial permit for me to display or exhibit but I will never forget how I was treated and intimidated by park rangers inside that park for being a simple photographer. They interrupted my Kickstarter project and I ended up leaving abruptly after feeling unsafe. Lessons learned about how I can no longer trust the Feds.

I was warned by local Texans NOT to go into the park that day if I wanted to have a good day. There’s a long story behind this incident which I may decide to blog about pretty soon. It’s a long story and part of a series of negative events that led up to this point, most of which were not related such as run-ins with the wrong people while traveling the borderlands. Etc.

White Sands National Monument in New Mexico

This image was taken just after sundown in White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo in New Mexico. The lens I used was the manual-focus Kowa 8.5mm F2.8 lens for the Micro Four Thirds format. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with this particular piece of equipment because it gives me mixed results or maybe I just need to adjust to it’s quirks.

I miss New Mexico. I’m back in Utah. I’ll try and update this site more daily before I update my Instagram…
