The truth is out there…
Don’t ask me why I love repetition so much but every leaf is different and unique.
This piece of artwork was called; Summer Thunder & Storm Pattern w/ Basket Guardian Rainbow by Lucy Leuppe McKelvey. This piece was priced at $3,500 dollars at the Cameron Trading Post in Northern Arizona. This was amazing so I had to grab a photo of the detail and texture!
I’m trying to simplify in such a way that any possible composition jumps out from anywhere. Looking for texture, simplicity, and in this shot some tension.
Another one of those expired toys from a bygone era…
It’s a bit unsettling to photograph toys that are older than half a century. Something begins to haunt the space in which the object resides. It is in our humanity to look for clues and answers. For me, it is a reminder of how short life can be. These things from the past, they tell a story and serve as a reminder to enjoy every moment of life because it is so short.
I know this ain’t pretty but it is texture. So I converted this to sepia so it looks more like oil.
I enjoyed the texture on the walls and the window-light in this abandoned structure out in the middle of nowhere.
Was out in the snow shooting last night! It was another attempt to take advantage the the diffused lighting offered by cloudy weather.
Here is another rock art panel, a pictograph made in Barrier Canyon style and left by ancient Western Archaic Indians that inhabited that Canyonlands region of Southeastern Utah 1,000-6,000 B.C. I just returned from a 10 day trip venturing to different petroglyph/pictograph sites and photographing them. So look forward to some incredible images being posted here on Desert Dream. This site specific is located in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Please don’t ask me for the location. It is not known to the general public. It’s the only way to protect the site from reckless vandals who need to be taken out and shot.
I found this building over at SUU with a huge stained-glass window. I can spy on the public while they pass by and take pictures. Notice the lady smoking her cig? haha…
Title of image was inspired by the song under the same title by Dashboard Confessional.
I’m taking an advanced digital photography class at Southern Utah University and we are using our cameras to produce abstract images in black and white. You’ll probably see a lot of these images appearing on Desert Dream because I’m breaking away from the mold to experiment. I love photography!
