Death Vally Sand and Brush

IMG_2174-2I am in catch up m ode and sharing images that have been sitting in my Blog files for a while.  Today I’ll share two images from Death VAlley.  The whole Death Valley things is a bit surreal.  It’s a beautiful place.  It’s a place you don’t visit in the summer.  It gets amazingly nasty hot.  Winter time is the time to visit.  The image above was shot at dawn when I was shooting sunrise in the dunes near Stovepipe Wells.   The image below was a bit further out in Death Valley and I found an old shack and a hundred feet from it was this roller skate.  Now who roller skates in the Dessert?

A Little Strange

Mirror Effect In The Screw Factory

Mirror Effect In The Screw Factory

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.  You be the judge.  I at least though it was interesting.  This was shot in some old abandoned screw and bolt factory.  It is really is old because we found a box with cancelled checks dating all the way back to 1953.  This places was downright creepy.   It was huge and it smelled bad.  I had a hard time finding something to shoot, so I got creative and did a double exposure.  Kind of works, i think?

Shooting With My Best Friend

Debra

Debra

I consider myself one of the luckiest guys in the world.  I have been doing photography all my life and have had a great career doing it.  I have seen things, traveled to the most incredible locations and met some of the coolest people you’d ever want to know and meet.  I am also a lucky guy because back in February 2015 I married my best friend Debra in Antarctica.  She is a trooper and she loves photography too.  Wow, how lucky could one get.  She actually gets me, understand me and tolerates me with all my travels and everything photographic that I obsess about.  Yes, she is definitely the woman for me and she is a darn good photographer too.  She has an amazing eye and it’s fun to shoot with her because even though we are at the same locations we come back with totally different images.  Here is a shot of Debra shooting away at the Methodist Church in Gary, IN.

Church Graffiti

Graffiti - Methodist Church, Gary

Graffiti – Methodist Church, Gary

This seems to be the year of finding some great graffiti.  Gary proved no different.  This was found in the abandoned Methodist Church.  This place was huge and incredible to shoot in.. I could have spent a whole day just shooting at this one location.  In the sanctuary I saw this graffiti on the wall and decided it worthy of a photo.  Shot with the iPhone.

Inside The Gary Post Office

In addition to my big bot camera the Sony a7 II I was also shooting this past weekend with the iPhone using my favorite app Hipstamatic.  This app lets you configure the camera for certain styles and then applies them to shot you take.  I love it and the next three images were made using this app and doing double exposures.  One particular selection in the app called Salvator actually does the double exposure thing when the camera is shot,  Hope you enjoy these three images.

Lupins

Lupins, Punta Arenas, Chile

Lupins, Punta Arenas, Chile

One of my favorite flowers and a flower I run into in almost every corner of the world is a Lupin.  While in Punta Arenas, Chile prior to this years Antarctica trip we came upon a large field of Lupins.  So, we had a fun time shooting and I decided that I needed to do a some post processing technique on the image so it wouldn’t look like just another flower photo.

Iceland Delta

River Delta from the air in Iceland

River Delta from the air in Iceland

On our trip last week to Iceland we chartered a helicopter.  Iceland from the air is a whole other world.  We were able to open the door and the pilot did a great job getting us to the good locations.  I think he has done this before.  One of the things that becomes obvious quickly is the abstract of the landscape.  This is a shot done of a river delta and the muddy waters.  without a reference you wouldn’t know what you were looking at.  Made with the Nikon D800E with a 24-70mm lens at 1600th of a sec.
