The many faces of Yellowstone

The many faces of Yellowstone

The many faces of Yellowstone

After spending several days in California with clear blue sky every day, having a few clouds was appreciated.  This is probably not a common place to stop and take a picture in Yellowstone – but I am glad I did. I enjoy the texture and depth of the water in this picture and examining how different the dark blue of the water is from the blue of the sky.
 There is depth in the clouds also and hills in the distance.  If you look closely you can see a bird flying in the middle of the picture, with blurred wings.

Provia 100, F8 and probably speed 1/250.

Small town alley

USA Small town alley

USA Small town alley

A small town in Utah.  The electric wiring in these alleys can be quite creative.  This would not last one week here in Iceland!

One of the few Porta 160 NC films I have shot.  For some reasons I had a trouble getting accurate colors with negative films so for the most part I have shot Provia on my Autocord.

Doing the laundry while others play

Doing the laundry while others play

This picture is taken on my first trip to the Mazahua Valley. We visited a small church where I delivered a short sermon.  I still remember the sermon.  It was on Romans chapter 7 and how we can find ourselves utterly incapable of doing what is good or making a positive move forward.


Then we had some free time to walk around. This girl captured my attention. She was quite busy doing the laundry and did not look up until I said hi – as she did I released the shutter on the Autocord.

There is something about the expression on her face.  I wonder where she is now and how her life is turning out?

Provia 100 film.  It was quite sunny – probably I jused F16 and 1/250.

What a great piece of art this egg is – located in Chicago. Looking at this picture again I also enjoy the lines in the pavement – spreading out from the bottom left corner of the picture. Again – Provia film.
