Transposed

Although there are two very different subjects in this composition, one soft, the other hard, the hard is softened by the reflection of the sky and clouds.  This also serves to add texture to the hardness of the human created structure, the texture being captured and constrained by the edges of the building.

Somewhere, in the middle of North Dakota, is place that is off limits to the curious.

End of the Line

For several years I’ve been driving past this bus parked in the trees along Highway 23 outside of Duluth and finally stopped to captured a few photos.  Timing was important as I wanted to get the photos in the morning when the sun was at the correct angle to light the bus just right.  That meant being out somewhat early; this image was captured at 7:21AM.

Image captured at a monument in Colombia in December of 2013.  I chose to add touches that gave the image an ethereal feel.

This week my thoughts are on water as I will be spending several days in the BWCAW in northern Minnesota.  Gooseberry Falls is along the north shore of Lake Superior and along the route we will take to get to our destination. Gooseberry Falls is a favorite of Minnesotans , visitors from around the country and the world.

Calm Crossing

Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements.  Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself.  This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally.  I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime.  Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

Perhaps it was just a dream?

The memory is hazy, was it real or a dream?  Did I walk in this place or is it a place not of this reality?  The image exists, so the place must exist…somewhere.

The adventure of driving a backroad in rural Wisconsin during a blizzard.  Happy to note that many hours later, after getting stuck only once, we arrived safely at our destination.
