This is the legendary Kolob Canyon near my home in Southern Utah. Yes! I have redrock in my backyard and yes, I get to see this weekly.
Captured at work tonight on the iPhone 4S. I’m loving this portability in the camera. Learning the art of having a camera on me on the time since my phone is my camera that is with me all the time. This is what I call a Hopi Sunset when they are this intense. It reminds me of a Hopi story about a young man that always strayed to the edge of the mesa outside his village, wondering about the afterlife and what happened after this life.
Parowan stands for Evil Waters according to the Southern Paiute. This is the Little Salt Lake in Parowan Valley of Southwestern Utah. Back in the long ago, it was said that a man-eating monster lived out there. Who knows? This is just what I heard. Every time I venture out across the Parowan Valley, there’s strange things to be found.
I love the lost feel of old photos and black & white. I want to start doing more of these and want to start experimenting more with monotones, tint-types, grain, and all types of photography that leave you feeling awed.
I’m easing my way into thinking this way. Sometimes a word with a beautiful image can convey a lot without saying too much. Tumblr is the inspiration behind this muse. This is happening quite a bit on there and I want to reach out to those hearts. After all, people are beautiful.
Some dreams are left unfulfilled and the people who built those dreams have passed on to the spirit world. This is all that’s left in the temporal world. So work hard to fulfill those goals because life is ever so short. Already, I’m caught in the bind of trying to figure out quickly what to do with my life because it passes by so fast. This is the abandoned dream house.
