Button Eyes
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.

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’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!
