100 Prints Project #82 - Stoney Point Spider Web


I'm not sure when my vision started to drift away from what some folks would consider the mainstream, but I think the time has come for me to stop being apologetic for the fact that I don't always see the world in the same way as others do.  While my peers were shooting a beautiful sunrise through the fog on Lake Superior's Stoney Point, I drifted away and found a quiet spot.  Their images are beautiful to be sure.  My image is unmistakably my own...

100 Prints Project #78 - Mama, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys...


Believe it or not there is actually someone still on that horse.  This was taken during the 2013 Minnesota Roadtrip workshop with ColdSnap Photography.  The most amazing thing is that this guy never fell off this this horse despite the wild ride.  I panned with my camera and continued shooting the best I could to capture his ride.  I think the officials ruled that he had not made it and when his ride finished he asked several of us "did you get that"?  We did and sent the photos to the rodeo.  I'll post more images from his amazing ride in the near future.

100 Prints Project #77 - Fiona


This is Fiona.  I met her at a small town fair during last summer's ColdSnap Minnesota Roadtrip workshop.  As you can see. she is adorable.  The fair was pretty small for so many photographers so while the other folks descended on the rest of the fairgrounds, Fiona and I got to know each other fairly well. She was very kind and I am helpless when faced with creatures that have big brown eyes.
