THE WANDERING LOOKOUT

September 19th, 2014, posted in 2014, Blog, Burning Man, Nevada

Another amazing art installation graces the playa while a giant, golden, fire-breathing dragon flies by. Each day out here is so special and you want to see everything. It’s not until you view other people’s photos that you realize how much you missed. But it’s all good. Everyone’s experience is different… and so far each of my 4 years at Burning Man have been awesome. I’m ready to go again. The man burns in 351 days.

VEE

I love walking up to awesomeness at Burning Man. This girl was wearing the same type of visor that I was so we had a silly connection. I asked her for a few photos and she happily obliged.

NORTH DOWNTOWN DALLAS

February 28th, 2013, posted in 2013, Blog, HDR, Texas

I took this during the Meetup last month at the Chase Tower in downtown Dallas. We were having to shoot through glass in a well lit room, which usually creates horrible reflections. Thankfully, I have a little device called a Lens Skirt, which suction cups to the window and eliminates the unwanted reflections. I think I could have sold them all if I had some extras.

I posted this photo over on Flickr a few days ago and the dang thing blew up. It made their Explore category and it received over 7,000 views in 3 days. I love it when that happens!

TORONTO AT NIGHT

I took this on my last night while working for RIMOWA in Canada. I’d really like to go back and visit one day. Everyone was really nice and chilled.

DAILY PHOTO – THE EDGE OF NEW YORK

June 7th, 2012, posted in 2012, Blog, HDR, New York

During the 3 days I got to spend in New York for the International Auto Show, I spent all my free time out in the city shooting. We bought tickets for sunset at the Top of the Rock. I think next time I’ll pay the “day” price and stay up there longer. It’s not like they clear the place out just for the “sunset” people. Every rail was about 3 people deep and it took quite a bit of waiting to get a good spot.

THE NEW YORKER

April 24th, 2012, posted in 2012, Blog, New York

It’s a little weird now being back home and not shooting all day out on the streets. I loved being in NYC. I wouldn’t want to live there, but it would be really cool to rent a room for a month there to really take it all in. I wonder which would be the best month to do that?

MY BURNING MAN NEIGHBORS

September 14th, 2011, posted in Blog, Burning Man 2011, Nevada

This is one group of my neighbors from Burning Man 2011. They were from Michigan and were all so cool and helpful. They came in this huge green church bus which also served as a great platform for seeing what was going on at the Playa. From left to right are Jane, Kevin, Kate, Jordan and Jesse. They don’t know how much I appreciate them welcoming a virgin burner twice their age and showing me the ropes.

Since getting back to reality, we’ve all friended each other on facebook. It’s really cool how you can do that now. I like being able to keep up with people I can only see once a year. The more I travel, the more diverse my friends list becomes.

I think that is important so you’re not conditioned to one singular way of thinking. Experiencing other peoples environments helps keep your mind open to new and alternative ideas, which then expands into newer ideas still.

The Natural Cave

Down at the bottom of this photo is the entrance of the natural cave. It was so peaceful inside there that I just wanted to stay forever. The water was so cool and would gently roll in and out. The colors were amazing, too, accentuated by the moisture.
