Desert Color

This is a 2x2 foot closeup of an outcropping of Navajo sandstone that was as big as a small house. The entire hillside was littered with these "pebbles". The desert is extraordinarily beautiful if you take the time to really get out there and really look.

Art Vendor As Art

Walking down Duval Street in Key West I thought the art vendor display as a whole was, to my amateur eye...art...so I clicked.

Sea Grass

Walking on a coral reef during low tide and bright sunlight offers interesting combinations of color.

Along the same fence but way different...possibly another family member likes to also weld.

Alley Walking

Between the Las Vegas Strip and the downtown area (Fremont Street) there's an area that is....neither of those. Graffiti artists have taken over the alleys so it is fun to walk around with a camera.

Art District

Between the Strip and Fremont Street areas in Las Vegas there is what's called the Art District. Formerly (and currently) a run down area of old buildings the city has been improving infrastructure and trying to renew the 30 some block area. It now has a scattering of restaurants, galleries, auto repair shops, vacant stores etc. I assume it will someday thrive as the Strip & Fremont Street areas converge but now it's an area that to my eye is struggling. Some old walls, alleys and vacant store fronts are covered in beautiful graffiti which is fun to photograph.

Fremont Street

Downtown Las Vegas has been erecting old refurbished neon signs which is really helping the area hold on to its gambling history.

Just Sand

Nose Art

Nose art is a decorative painting or design on the fuselage of an aircraft, usually on the front fuselage. While begun for practical reasons of identifying friendly units, the practice evolved to express the individuality often constrained by the uniformity of the military, to evoke memories of home and peacetime life, and as a kind of psychological protection against the stresses of war and the probability of death.

The sandstone surface of the wash I was walking on. This patch was about 3’x4’ and went on for a few miles. The rock darkens when wet so to be here during a rare rain would be even more beautiful.

Navajo Sandstone

Per Wikipedia: Variations in the type and proportions of precipitated iron oxides resulted in the different black, brown, crimson, vermillion, orange, salmon, peach, pink, gold, and yellow colors of the Navajo Sandstone. I say, in strong sunlight it makes for wonderful art.

Out walking

on some side street in Las Vegas and came upon these 3 doors of an abandoned building. They were so wonderfully vandalized it looked to me as there was some plan. For a while this was printed and hanging in my house.
Full Screen

Waiting for a train

There's something in photography called "leading lines" that if captured should lead your eyes into the photo causing interest. I took it in color but I converted it to B&W because the color seemed to get in the way.

For scale, I was standing shooting down in front of my feet so this section of rock is a couple feet on each side.

New and Old

Daylily outside an 1800s home in Wisconsin. I walked up to this window thinking I was going to take a photo of what was behind me in some very old wavy glass but it was in the shade. The flower was lit nicely so it seemed to work against the drab old wooden building.

Fisherman’s Wharf – Monterrey CA

Walked to the end of the dock looking for a place to sit and eat some smoked salmon. Glanced down and saw these boats lined up.

Farm House Reflection

I like trying to get an interesting wall of texture combined with what's behind me. As a bonus, like this photo, it's reflecting in very old wavy glass. This is a farmhouse window and barn taken in Wisconsin.

Reflection Puzzle

I got a little artsy on this one. Standing at the bottom of a deep canyon called Hell Hole. Straight up to my left are the sunlit walls of the Red Mountains in Ivins Utah. This photo shows red sand, rock and water. Half of the water is reflecting the canyon wall in its sun gold color.

Sea Bottom

Walking in the Florida Keys water during low tide creates many different images. Here the water was maybe 6" deep when I took this. The photo never impressed me until a friend had it printed on a 2'x4' piece of metal.
Full Screen

Sandstone Slot Canyon

Navajo sandstone was formed by aeolian depositions — sediment deposited by activity of the wind. Such depositions began around 191 million to 174 million years ago during the Jurassic period. Iron oxide deposits were mixed with the windblown sands, resulting in layer after layer of varying shades of orange and red. They are the result of many millennia of weather extremes. During the long periods of drought, windblown sand would polish the narrow slot walls into a striated, swirling finish. Slot canyons are famous for its ever-changing play of light upon its walls and the flowing sandfalls that cascade into the depths of the slot canyon.

Follow the Cruise Ship

The ship was docked against the outside of the seawall. She slid sideways until there was enough room to make a 180 degree spin. It then headed out the shipping channel to the left. When I take a photo there's info imbedded in it. In this case it was a 35mm lens, f/11 and I kept the shutter open for 12.26 minutes. On my screen the stars are quite clear and they are also reflecting in the water.
Full Screen

The Bean

The structure is made up of 168 stainless steel plates that are welded together. The polished exterior has no visible seams, making it completely smooth. The inside is largely made up of a solid wooden structure. It measures 33 x 66 x 42 feet, weighing in at 110 short tons. So, it’s pretty big. When in Chicago I have no problem taking lots of photos.

Last Supper

Outside the abandoned mining town of Rhyolite Nevada someone erected this sculpture and one other strange "artwork". Nothing much else there except bad buildings, car shell and a bad totem pole.

Yes, simply dried cracked Utah earth. A friend pointed at our feet and said it would make a cool photo to which some may agree.

I like trying to capture layers utilizing reflections. If the glass is old, wavy or even broken it adds something.

The Green Parrot Bar

Key West In 1890, on the southeast corner of Southard and Whitehead streets, diagonally across from the Monroe County Courthouse, Anthony Sanchez opened a grocery store. And under its low-pitched roof, Cuban and Bahamian transplants accompanied their staples of rice and beans and plantanos with rum, cigars, and infectious Latin rhythms in the grocery’s small back room, where local musicians created impromptu descargas or jam sessions, often playing late into the night. And it continues to this day.
