The straw stands out II

This is part II of an earlier post.  Exploring simplicity.  Doing photography with the attitude of finding a beautiful frame by looking carefully and creatively around you where you are present in the moment – this is what I enjoy exploring.

Narrow view of the Grand Canyon

Narrow view of the Grand Canyon

Naturally we made a point to see the Grand Canyon on our road trip, north rim. It did not meet my expectations – probably because the place we where at did not offer the best possible view.

I found myself trying out a different kind of framing through the Autocord as looking at the canyon view through the Autocord viewfinder was not coming up with anything interesting.  At the viewpoint over the canyon, I noticed these two rocks so close together, yet so different, and the canyon in the distance between them.

There is much beauty in Yosemite.  I like the colors in this picture – the blue sky, gray mountains, green fields, dark river.  The Provia film delivers well.

If you have not taken a good road trip around the south west USA – I would strongly encourage you to do so – and do plan to have some time to hike.

I’m an Icelandic cowboy…

I'm an Icelandic cowboy

Our first place of sightseeing during our road trip was at the Great sand dunes. We arrived at the camp ground late in the evening.  The morning after we planned to go to the sand, but found ourselves in a sandstorm – the wind was really blowing that day.

As we drove through town we found this original leather store.  My brother Thor had as one of his goals to buy an original outfit – here was his chance to become an Icelandic cowboy.

Shot on Porta 160 NC – enjoy!

Pickup truck for sale on Autocord

I like this green pickup truck. Saw this truck in 2006 driving west of the Twin Cities MN.
This picture is taken on Fuji Superia – was trying that film out. I was surprised to see how sharp this picture turned out (not fully delivered in this smaller web-format). I ended up using Fuji Provia as my main film – but I did have a few nice negative pictures like this one.
