Some roadside bison and elk we came across while driving through Yellowstone, followed by my favorite part of the park: The Grand Canyon/Artist's Point

Some long exposures I took in Jackson, Wyoming. The first shot is a 92 second exposure; the second, 74 seconds.

Dead Fish Tell No Tales

Just 2 of the hundreds of dead fish washed up from the Salton Sea

When photo excursions go bad:

For once, I remembered to pack the tripod, the right lens, had a charged battery, and most importantly, the initiative to get out and shoot! Being a lover of long exposures, I've been wanting to go out to Joshua Tree at night to shoot the trees, stars, cloud trails and wide open landscape since I bought my camera 3 years ago. Fast forward to Saturday night. It was just past midnight and we were 20 miles into Joshua Tree from the wrong entrance with hardly any gas...all the makings of a bad horror movie I would pay to watch. We couldn't bring ourselves to get out of the car into the surrounding blackness and instead bolted back towards the freeway. I've never seen my gas tank hit zero miles but lucky for us, the slight downhill slope on the 10 allowed us to roll into Chevron without the car breaking down.

Happy Birthday

Decided to make a paper doll stop motion. Unfortunately, my tripod was at my mom's house and I had to free-hand this (while moving the props), so this is probably the shakiest stop motion I've ever made.

Noticing a trend here lately? I'm not trying to change this into a food blog, but I haven't been able to go outside and take pictures of anything lately. So sometimes when I cook or bake, I decide to shoot since that's better than nothing, right?

(self timer--I had to get the glaze going on; yum-o)
