I made this capture of my nephew at the family Thanksgiving Dinner last week. It was a spur-of-the-moment photo as he sat on his father’s lap and looked my direction. The intense eyes really make this shot.

The Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns, Utah.

This building was the site of the speedskating events in the 2002 Winter Olympics. It is now used as a recreational facility for such things as indoor soccer, hockey, public skating and, of course, speedskating. The unique architectural features of the structure make it a prime subject for nighttime photography.

If you’ve followed my blog much, then you are probably aware that I enjoy taking photos of miniature scenes. I have a growing collection of small figurines including army men, pirates, cowboys and such. I like the challenge of attempting to create a realistic looking scene with these little people.

This particular shot is neat because the covered wagon is actually not much taller (if at all) then the cowboy. By placing it in the blurred background, I was able to create the perspective of it being the correct proportion for the rest of the scene.

Of all the miniature scenes I have shot, my favorite is still one of my first titled Call for Help.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”

Yes, the over-commercialized holiday season is upon us. In just one day’s mail delivery last week we received fourteen catalogs. I can’t imagine the expense that these companies incur in producing, printing and mailing these full color works.

Would these be considered “Snail-Mail-Spam?

This was taken by Michelle at our children’s school during a Veteran’s Day program. Though I am not a huge fan of selective colorization of images, I felt that this one could use the effect to isolate the scout.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
