This was taken at the Antelope Canyon, Arizona. What appears to be a sand dune stretching into a rising sun is actually the cliff of the canyon, formed by Navajo Sandstone. The photo was shot from the bottom of the canyon, vertically towards the top where the light comes from. However there is no sky visible, meaning no direct sunlight. The purpose of that is to lower the contrast in brightness so you can see the full detail of the cliff without dark spots yet still keep the picture bright enough. The Antelope Canyon is such a natural wonder. One has to be there to fully appreciate the uncanny workmanship of Mother Nature. I was trying to capture even if just one percent of the brilliance and I know that effort can look futile a lot of the times. So I tried to approach it with a special angle, an angle that makes viewers wonder what they are seeing and how it comes to be, just like I couldn’t help wondering how nature created the Antelope Canyon.

Various colored plastic and paper surfaces collected shadow projections from venetian blinds on a bright sunny day. The line patterns can vary depending on how open or closed the blinds are
set at. Varying camera positions capture different illusions of
spatial depth and movement.

The Woman in Black
I caught this woman walking in Big Tree State Park in Longwood, Florida. The park itself once featured, The Senator, the tallest and oldest bald cypress tree in the world. In 2012 it was burned to the ground by a 26 year old woman. The charred remains of the tree now only stand 20 feet tall.
The Woman in Black was dressed in black from head to toe. A long dress, darkened sunglasses, a black hat, and a black umbrella. It was as if she was mourning the loss of the tree seeing as it was mid-July in Florida. If she was indeed mourning the tree, it was a wonderful show of human compassion toward the earth that has given us all life. I will never know her true purpose for being there.
