This year I have created several 2020 calendars with the help of an online publisher CreatePhotoCalendars.com.  I hope you will get to enjoy my images throughout the... Continue Reading →

Clouds 2001

In 2001 I had a daily commute of 50 minutes to go 50 miles.  Not bad when you compare it to others who commute 50 minutes to go half that distance.   On my way home during the winters I saw some great sunsets and clouds that were lit-up by the setting sun.  I took these... Continue Reading →

Retrospective I

As I look back over my 40+ years of taking photographs, I have many different styles.  From studying other photographers, I noticed many have one style or a style that progresses over time.  Maybe my body of work reflects the countless of times I have come back to photography only to find I could not...

Snow Tire

After one of Denver's weekend snows, I went for a walk.  The was fresh enough and the day young enough that only a couple of people left their tracks in the snow.  Someone on one of those mountain bikes with the mega fat tire had broken the trail.  The snow was of the perfect consistency...

Backyard 2018 pt2

Below are the images that first caught my eye in my backyard.  As I mentioned in the previous blog, it was late afternoon after we have came back from the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado.  I'm not sure why I was drawn the these plants but I was. It has taken me several weeks to... Continue Reading →

Birthday Drive 2018

I decided to get out of Denver and drive the roads I first saw 40 years ago as I was nearing my twenty-first birthday.  I had left college in January of that year because they would not allow me to take courses in my chosen major of Radio & TV.  You see, in order to... Continue Reading →

Montana Road Trip II (part 1)

Over the first weekend of October 2018, I took a road trip from Denver, Colorado to Glacier National Park.  The dates for this trip were first set for the end of September but job and life required that I postpone it a couple of weeks.  Prior to leaving, I checked the weather maps and saw...

6 Days and 3000 Miles in 12 Photos

  On a mid-June morning in Oceanside CA, I began filming my first full-length documentary. For the next 6 days I shot videos and stills as four women and twelve crew members raced across America.   Hours after the start the racer sees her first sunset.   Bikes and rider loaded in the follow vehicle,...

Cross Country 2012

In Opportunities Rarely Come Twice, I wrote about seizing opportunities whenever you can.  In this case is was filming / photographing a bicycle team's attempt at breaking a cross country record for the fastest time to ride across America.  Along with producing my first full length film, the opportunity provided for great still photographs.  Below...

Storms Brewing 2018

The other week I went for a bike ride through a local park, Cherry Creek Reservoir.  The clouds were threatening but it was a warm day so a little water would be a relief.  I only had my smartphone and the photos came out rather well. JSH  

First “Happy Mistake”

  I’m sure many of you have had “Happy Mistakes”.  Happy Mistakes are unintentional errors that produce something that was beyond your imagination.  The first happy mistake I can recall occurred in the basic B&W photo course I took two summers after graduating from high school.  I was finishing printing a photo of this hut...

My Backyard – 2018

It was the end of a long drive.  We were back from our Memorial Day excursion to the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado.  I was sitting on the couch looking out the patio door to the backyard.  The light was soft from all the shade.  For what ever reason I grabbed my camera and went...

Photo Editing

Perhaps this has become a moot point, but I recall when Photoshop was first released there was such an uproar over the purity of the image.  (This is espeically true for photo-journalism.  So let's keep photo-journalism out of this particular blog.)  Photoshop made it too easy to maniplulatean the image.  I bet Mr. Grandfather of Photography...

Fossil Creek Reservoir – May 2018

I'm preparing for a July adventure and needed a tent.  I found one on CraigsList like the one I had when I was 21.  I contacted the seller to purchase the tent but he was only going to sell it through his garage sale on Saturday.  Unfortunately, I could not be there on Saturday.  I...
