Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square, London, England

I went to London for the first time on my honeymoon. My wife and I were looking to go someplace we had never been, someplace exciting and where language would not be a problem. I fell in love with London on that trip and last year was my 4th visit.
The photograph above is the fountain in Trafalgar Square. I was walking alone at the time. It was early evening and the family had returned to the hotel as they were tired. It had been a long day and I was tired too, but I wanted to keep on walking. I love looking at the buildings.

Sunrise at Mesa Arch

sunrise at mesa arch

Finally I saw it. Sunrise at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park, Utah. An image many other photographers have captured but now it was my turn. My daughter and I arrived early. About a 25 minute drive from our hotel in Moab, we pulled into the parking lot at 5 AM. (About 90-120 minutes before sunrise.) Swimming in my usual naivete, I thought we’d be the only ones here. We weren’t, but I still found a spot to setup my camera. It’s best to arrive earlier.There’s not much space to position yourself for the shot.
Plenty of conversation ensued with my photo neighbors which quickly ended when the sun made an appearance. Wow!

Young Man Portrait

Young Man Portrait

Young Man Portrait. In 2000, the last year of the 20th Century, I decided to take a photo a day of my son (11 years old at the time). I thought that it would be a fun project with him but there might be some difficulties. Technically this meant shooting one image per day, using one roll of film per month and hoping that I didn’t make any mistakes along the way.  I also decided to shoot B&W film because I could handle the processing myself. The project started out simply – he’d stand against the same white wall everyday, with the date written on a piece of paper, and he’d make a silly face. Eventually I moved away from the wall and photographed him in different locations. As the year progressed I processed the film and put it into print file negative pages. At the end, I brought my “12 months” to a photo lab to make me 16×20 enlarged contact prints. They looked beautiful.
The following year – 2001 – was the start of the 21st Century and this time I photographed my daughter. The process and final product was the same but I shot color film instead. Then in 2005 I returned to the project shooting both my son and daughter together. This time I shot digital, which made it easier. The only difficult part was making sure that I didn’t forget to take a photo, but my kids would always remind me, “Dad, you didn’t take the photo of the day yet!” Digital also made it easier because I could shoot several images and pick the best one. The final product was different though, it was a book instead of a contact print..In 2000, the last year of the 20th Century, I decided to take a photo a day of my son (11 years old at the time).

Godafoss Waterfall

Godafoss Waterfall

The Godafoss Waterfall is in northern Iceland. Godafoss is the english spelling.
“Goðafoss” is the Icelandic one.The letter “d” is written differently.
Also “Godafoss Waterfall” is redundant because a waterfall in Iceland is identified by “foss”.
