Turquoise

Not much to this photograph.  I just liked the way the sun was falling across the door and the fact that one rarely sees this color.

Punch Bug Green (no return)

I have seen this Beetle around town a few times and have wanted to take a picture of it.  One day by the beach I got my chance and while I was taking my picture the owner came by with a big smile on his face obviously proud of his vehicle.


 

 

I must admit that I changed the color of the car slightly to a green that I like more.

1964 Shelby Cobra

I am not a really big car buff, but this one catches anyone’s eye.  I am not sure if this is a real one or one of the replicas that are available.   I am also not sure that it is a 1964 but I did some googling and I think I am right.  Please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.   Regardless, this is a sweet ride.

Greenwood Firehall

This is a tighter in shot of the Greenwood Firehall taken, I am assuming, after a fresh coat of bright red paint.

Elephant Carving

My wife has this little elephant carving that is only about 2 inches tall.  Since I can’t afford the helicopter ride over the savanna to get a similar shot with real elephants I guess this one will have to do.

Listen

I call this one “Listen” obviously because ears are for listening but I also like to use it as a bit of a reminder to listen for the details in the world.  I try to notice the small things that are just as amazing as the big things.  It’s easy to stop listening because of all the noise and distraction.

Pisa Baptistery

This is a very old shot I took in Pisa, Italy at night.  The exposure, if my memory serves me correctly, was close to a minute.  Although the sky looked pretty much black to me, the film picked up the true color of the sky if our eyes were more sensitive.

Waterslide

My wife came across this waterslide in the middle of Montana that isn’t very close to any cities.  I took this shot looking up into the sun so that it filtered through the semi-transparent slide.

Pampas Grass

My family and I used to live in Mukilteo, Washington.  It is a beautiful small town next to Everett.  This shot was taken from Mukilteo Drive with the sun setting behind the Olympic mountains to the west.
