Here's a shot that's quite different from what I normally do. I was kickin' around downtown Salt Lake one night before Christmas and I wandered into Salt Lake City's beautiful new public library, found a book and cozied up among this row of chairs. I had my grandpa's wonderful Ansco Super Memar with me and snapped a few shots, but none I like as much as this.

Mesa Arch, Island in the Sky, Canyonlands National Park
Isn't the desert Southwest just one of the most beautiful places in the world? Over New Year's, we road tripped down to southeastern Utah to see Arches and Canyonlands and over to Hovenweep National Monument in Colorado, and I was just star-struck, in awe, amazed, blown away and a hundred other words for being WOWED! If you haven't had a chance to visit that area, get movin'! What are you waiting for?
In other news, beginning this Friday, January 20, I've got six photographs in the "Altered Landscapes" exhibit at the Women's Art Center on Pierpont Ave. in Salt Lake City. The show runs through February 15. Check it out!
Today I'm listening to Big Head Todd and the Monsters. You should too!

Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of hanging out at the Albion Grill at Alta Ski Resort one Sunday to sell my wares. I had prints and oodles of note cards for sale and made a buck or two, but the best part was the snowy landscape behind me. The heavenly white stuff was was coming down heavily in Big Fluffy Flakes, the kind that get stuck to your eyelashes as you open your mouth skyward and stick out your tongue. Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I made this shot with my Holga with two or three handheld shutter clicks off the deck of the Grill. Good times! Enjoy and Happy Winter!
