High Desert Journal

I'm very pleased and excited to announce that I am in the Fall 2007 issue of the High Desert Journal, and not only that, I am the centerfold! Five of my photos appear, as you see below, as well as the text I wrote, and a small bio in which I completely forgot to list my website. Duh. Oh well. There's always Google.

It's been a long time since I've had time to devote to my blog. I've kept the family blog going all summer with pics from vacations, concerts, disc golf outings and the state fair, but my personal blog has been neglected. My cameras have been neglected. Yesterday, I pulled my Duaflex III out of a box and made a new contraption for some through-the-viewfinder photos. It's been raining all weekend so I didn't leave the house, but felt compelled to shoot something, anything, so this is what I did. I also did a simple Google search for Photoshop cross-processing and applied a quick faux x-pro to this and the other TTV shots I made today. See more on Flickr.

Busy Bee

If anyone is reading this anymore, I bet you thought I forgot about my blog. Well, it's not true. I haven't forgotten, I've just been too busy. I've been busy having fun and getting used to a new job. I haven't been calling myself a photographer for very long, mostly because I wasn't making any money doing it, but as of May 14, I officially became a bona fide photographer. I'm now working for and loving a local but worldwide company,, shooting products. Although shooting clothed-mannequins in a studio isn't really my forte, it's decent money, the people are great and the deals are sweet, so why not?! In the month I've been there, I've already bought two pair of Chacos, a laptop/overnight bag, a Timbuk2 Messenger Bag, an Ocean Kayak tandem sit-on-top (our third kayak!), two paddles, two PFDs and some scupper stoppers. Next on my list is luggage, a bike rack, a new fleece, a new rain jacket and some socks. Basically, I'm working for the gear if you couldn't tell. It's a great company and I'm really enjoying myself.

I've also been traveling a bit. Trav and I went to Colorado again for the third time in a year and hung out at Rocky Mountain National Park and Garden of the Gods. We saw Big Head Todd and the Monsters at Red Rocks again too. Last week, I spent three glorious days on the Oregon Coast with my dad, my nephew Brandon, and his buddy Josh. Here's an arbitrary sunset shot of Haystock Rock on Cannon Beach. This day was our last day here and it was the first blue-sky day we had the whole time. It was beautiful!

If you're interested, there are more on my Flickr page.

Far from Home

I spent a good portion of my day looking at our vacation photos from last summer and came across this one, far from home, at Lake Tahoe. We just pulled off the road somewhere on the California side at a spot that looked like a good put-in, and found this peaceful, calm protected bay of sorts. We paddled south a ways then drifted slowly back toward the car. As we floated about a thousand feet off shore, we enjoyed watching a party from afar that was going on back on land. It was so quiet out on the water that we could hear the music and laughter being shared. It was our first night at Tahoe. How I miss you.

Salt Lake Toy Camera Club meets April 22. Be there or be 6x6.

Tonight, I'm listening to iTunes on shuffle:
"Into the Mystic" Van Morrison
"Look After You" The Fray
"Distractions" Zero 7
"Come Calling" Cowboy Junkies

Prayer Flags



I wish I could say I photographed these while on a month-long adventure in Nepal, but they're actually from a Nepalese store on Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado, and now hanging in my backyard between two of my Ginseng trees.

This month, I'm the featured artist at Solstice Framing and Gallery! If you're in the Salt Lake area, check out my Local Color project hanging through April. 357 E 3300 South.

This morning, I am listening to a great jam band called TapWater. We listened to them on a streetcorner in Stateline, Nevada on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe last summer. Check them out!

In the wash...

I've been neglecting my cameras and in turn, my blog, for months. Here are a few more from my recent outing to the West Desert west of SLC, with the promise that I'll post again soon with something new and preferably film-based. Yes, these are digital. I took an arsenal of film cameras out with me and took two Polaroid shots that I just found in my washer this morning. I washed them with my jeans. Oops.



Months ago, for a short time, I included what I was listening to and somehow, I forgot to keep doing it. Not that you care or anything, but today I'm listening to:

Dixie Chicks Taking the Long Way
Fiona Apple Extraordinary Machine
The Duhks "Down the River"

Seven Degrees F

My husband won me a delightful little Lubitel 166B off of eBay for my birthday last week and here are some snowy northern Utah pics from the second roll I've run through it. I'm in love with this camera. The look, the feel, the output... Good stuff. These are both from a recent drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon east of SLC. It was 7 degrees and snowing here and there. Beautiful!

 The beauty of digital is that I can sit and photograph my pink Nalgene bottle for half an hour and not have to spend money on developing the film...
If you're in the Ogden, Utah area any Friday or Saturday this month, stop by the Universe City Gallery on 25th and Washington and see six of my photos hanging in the Basin and Range II group exhibit. Should be fun! Posted by Picasa
