Letting go

Several years ago I made one of my favorite pictures, abandoned buildings covered with graffiti and rust, in San Antonio. On a recent trip, I was excited to return to the location to capture the shot that got away. Instead of finding run down buildings, a new restaurant occupied the spot. Besides enjoying the food, what to do. I threw away my preconceptions and allowed myself to see what was before me, rather then what had been.

 

 

 

 

Look up, down and all around

Several years ago I photographed the Grand Canyon from various vista points, capturing the views as they stretched before and below me. Towards the end of the trip I began to lookup as well. At Desert View Watchtower framed by passing clouds and at the murals painted on the ceilings within. As I continued to wander, light from above caught my attention. Looking up I saw a glass ceiling illuminating stonewalls aged by time and the elements much like the Grand Canyon walls below me.

Look up, look down, look all around, the images surround you.
