Saturday, December 24th, 2011

This is part two of my favorite pictures from 2011. While the first five were world photographs, this group is more personal. I either took them, or was part of their capture.

And like the last time, I’ll comment on why they matter to me.

Best Pictures of 2011 – Part 1

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

I love photography and I do believe it can say things that can’t ever be captured in words. So while this is obviously a text heavy blog, I wanted to share the photos which said the most to me this year and a few of the reasons why.

Look, don’t touch…

I’ve been struck by something recently.

We live in a beautiful country, with amazing things to see and road access to breathtaking parts of the outdoors.  And unlike most of the rest of the world’s beauty, we’ve never had ours spoiled by bombing raids or cleared to make more paper.

Yet we’re encouraged to stay away.  To avoid actually experiencing it first hand.  Conservation has turned the corner and become restriction.  And I’m not just talking about our most visited national parks –

The full moon happened right around my Birthday this year and it inspired me to take a midnight hike with my dog.  Reading that probably sparked one of two responses in you:  You think it sounds like a great idea.  Or you think I’m stupid.  Either way… humor me…. Click to continue »
