When we visited Bosque del Apache in October, 2019, it was too early for the annual crane festival. While we didn't get to see a lot of cranes, the wildlife refuge had plenty of scenic vistas to keep a photographer happy. When I went back through the photos, these two caught my eye for processing … Continue reading New Mexico: Bosque del Apache in black and white (2019)
After we attended the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, we headed to a small town near Tucumcari. The nearest place to pick up Amazon packages (through the Amazon Locker program) was in Amarillo. While we were running errands in Amarillo, we made sure to visit the Cadillac Ranch on our way in. It's much less crowded … Continue reading Texas: Cadillacs and graffiti in black and white (2019)
When we reached Oregon in May, 2019, our first stop after settling in was to visit the Oregon Coast. I have photographed the Peter Iredale shipwreck several times. Every time we see it, more of it is gone, victim to the ravages of time. The shipwreck has been a tourist attraction since it wrecked. We … Continue reading Oregon: A shipwreck in black and white (2019)
I didn't take a lot of photos in Rawlins because I was sick for two days, but we did get to the Carbon County Museum, where I found this tree. We drove around for a bit, but there was plenty we need to come back to see in the area, including the Wyoming Frontier Prison. … Continue reading Wyoming: Looking up to the sky in black and white (2019)
After we left Colorado, our next stop was Rawlins in Wyoming. We stopped at the Wagonhound Rest Area, 50 miles west of Laramie, on the way. We walked towards the edge of the rest area, where this amazing view presented itself. Sometimes, rest areas have amazing views, so we always check them out.
When I was in Denver for the STC Summit last year, we walked by the Denver Convention Center on the way to dinner. I couldn't resist getting this angle on the infamous blue bear. From this angle, you really see the intent of the artwork, named "I See What You Mean."
When we arrived in Colorado to attend the 2019 STC Summit, we had a day or two to acclimatize. We met up with a friend to hike and photograph the Lookout Mountain area, and captured this vista on the way back to our RV. This photo has a lot of what I like to capture: … Continue reading Colorado: Looking at the view in black and white (2019)
When we left Phoenix to drive the RV towards Denver for the STC Summit, we went to Munds Park before heading east on Interstate 40. Before you reach the New Mexico border on Interstate 40, there's an Arizona attraction called the Meteor Crater, the world's best preserved meteor crater impact site. There are three lookout … Continue reading Arizona: Path to a lookout point in black and white (2019)
I've always been drawn to patterns with my camera, so of course I saw the pattern in this overhang. We attended a Spring Training game at newly remodeled Peoria Sports Complex in March, 2019. I've always liked Spring Training games, because they allow me to bring in my good camera (no tripod, though). If you've … Continue reading Arizona: Patterns in black and white (2019)
