I saw these guys on an RV in front of us on burn night 2013…I just ran across this in one of my folders and had forgotten all about it. Love, love, love everything about this shot and the story of how they’re all just laid back and watching from afar, while I watched from afar-ther. Away from all the craziness and the thousands of people down there as the Man burns. You can see the smoke and dust, flames and lasers in front of them.
Or, it may have been before… I forget. This was one of the sexy ladies in the burlesque troop I did a few shows with back in New Mexico. The exposure in here was hard – and I didn’t get a nice clear focus either. Still cool because of the subject, I think.
This is what a yard looks like in Tucson. I love it. I never understood grass with all its maintenance and water waste. Give me a good ol’ gravel yard any day. I took this with the fairly crappy camera on my phone but still love the composition.
I took a bunch of shots of the sky as it changed, I must have 10 totally different skies in 10 minutes. I love the mountains of New Mexico- and when my mom pointed out her whirlygig, it made the perfect silhouette. Silhouettes have always been something I was artistically drawn to- I paint them, photograph them, am endlessly fascinated by them.
I think that was his name. The warm light and sharp focus on the eyes combined with the backdrop that looks painted makes me very happy with this image. People who’ve seen it have complained that most of the horse is cut off, but I wanted to be right up in his face.
The late fall light was perfect, and Bob just stared me down and didn’t twitch except to try and make the fly you can see on his face move away. I’ve got this one on my wall.
This great old truck is parked on some quiet property out in rural New Mexico- I’m sure it hasn’t gone anywhere for many years but I wouldn’t mind my last rest to be in these beautiful hills. It looks like maybe a ’60s era GMC but I’m not really sure. Any ideas?
Finally processing some fall images from a trip to NM- makes me look forward to spring! I love the colors, I have a few others with close ups of insects that I’ll have to post as well.
Maybe I like shooting people as well…can’t really take a bad picture of this model though 😉
The dust storm grew behind, metal rattling and voices howling. Before we turned tail against the angry stinging sand, a train rumbled by, the empty windows of this abandoned place staring desolate through the flashes of space between cars.
