Montana Road Trip II (part 2)

I woke up the following morning in Sheridan Wyoming.  The previous evening I spent two hours backtracking up to Casper to get on I-25 which was the faster route to Glacier although now it would only save me two hours instead of four off the route I had first headed-out on.  After a quick hotel...

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,...

Rock Moss Review by LensCulture

Rock Moss is a series of 14 images I took while visiting Glacier National Park in July 2018. It was a rainy day when I came across areas that had exposed rock with contrasting green vegetation. It reminded me of my Loveland Pass 2014 series of lichens on the continental divide and a close-up photo... Continue Reading →

Glacier 2018

These are a few more images I captured on my July Road Trip. The days were cloudy with rain off-and-on throughout the days.  It made for some great images but you would never know it by just looking through the lens.  This is where composition comes into play.  If the image is not well composed...

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...

Road Trip – 2018

I hadn't taken a road trip in years, and so, it was time.  I headed to Montana a state I had never been before.  The trip was non-stop to Glacier National Park via Yellowstone.  I could not pass through Yellowstone without taking a couple classic shots of Old Faithful.  The rest of the images are...

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...

Opportunities Rarely Come Twice

In 2009, right as the Great Recession began, I took an hiatus from my IT work to pursue a few personal goals.  The hiatus began with a graduate program in psychology which unfortunately ended after the first semester.  Being dyslexic, I could not keep up with the amount of required reading.  Plus, as many know...

Loveland Pass 2014

Loveland Pass was photographed on two weekends.  The first weekend was in late October when I went for a hike to clear my mind.  I had not been out of Denver for a long while and needed some fresh air.  What better place to get fresh air than the Continental Divide at Loveland Pass. The... Continue Reading →

Shoes 2009

The Realization In hindsight, perhaps these photos are about "hitting a wall".  Perhaps it's about following a path without really understanding where it is leading.  You are out of step with what's going on around you.  Bam!  You hit a wall.  You are corned!  Can't climb over it.  You can only laugh as you cry....
