Flashlight Painting

A flower and a smiley face. I was inspired to try this after reading a recent article about a guy who made an animated film using this technique. Absolutely Incredible. Here's a link to the article.

"Final Resting Place"

Theres a large undeveloped track of hardscrabble land behind my house that is largely populated by rabbits, mule deer and disgruntled teenagers. The area, it would seem, has become an unofficial dumping ground of all sorts of lost and forgotten objects. From clothes washers to automobiles and an old train tanker car, all sorts of large metal objects wither away in the unrelenting high desert climate. It makes for some interesting images, and I'll be putting a few of them up. I have found that the challenge to this isn't finding the images, its presenting them in an interesting way. I'll try, but if I fail, let me know. This is a bit of an experiment for me, and sometimes the best way to learn about something is to fail at it a few times before finally succeeding. Thanks for viewing.

Tiny Mushroom

About a 1" tall mushroom I found in my backyard after mowing the lawn. I don't like having mushrooms in my yard, I automatically think they're all poisonous, but I do admire how they look. F-36, ISO 200, 1/20th of a second exposure with on board flash. Hand-held! Lens was a reversed Canon 18-55 mm lens.

I've been Simpsonized!

Wow, the net never fails to amaze me. Just send in a photo of yourself at www.simpsonizeme.com and the software at that site will analyze your photo and come up with a simpsons character based on it. Woo Hoo!

Fireworks over Pilot Butte. Bend, Oregon

An amazing fireworks show that was launched from the top of Pilot Butte. The contractor for the fireworks display, Homeland Fireworks, really put on one hell of a show. I hope that they come back again. Notice also the spot fires on the butte, one in the center and a larger one to the right of the butte. The center one was put out fairly quickly, but the one to the right grew to a pretty big size!
