Red Rock Canyon

The scorching desert, inhospitable to most at 115 degrees, but to me it just feels like home. My wife and daughter waited for me in the car for most of the duration of my shooting, only emerging for short bursts of exploration. My 3 year old daughter instructing me that it's "smokin hot Dad," while my wife musters only faint hand signals... most of which unrepeatable on this blog.   Despite this excessive heat, I found it hard to leave. I had another, more interesting desert shoot planned for Death Valley, but it got nixed for this trip. I shall have to return, but it will probably have to be on my own... Unless I can find another extreme hot weather person such as myself to shoot with.

Anyone?

Forgotten Past - Lumby B.C. Barns

I took a fun little family trip to Lumby B.C. a short time ago in early September. It was a relaxing little retreat with boating, ATVing and even some photography. I really love the gorgeous barns that litter the interior of B.C. they are so full of stories I'm sure. Many have been long forgotten about, some seem to be defying the laws of physics as they stand firmly, yet precariously. Some have been restored to the former glory they once knew, but I find them somewhat less interesting. I am most curious about the broken, forgotten and stubborn structures. Perhaps they are reaching out to me for a last moment of importance, or maybe I just gravitate to the flawed and imperfect as they remind me most of myself?? Either way these are the first of my barn HDR series.
