This wonderful lady lights me up, fills my soul and enriches my life. So grateful she's by my side. Your smile exudes a special kind of magic I can’t help but believe in. An unspoken language of kindness emanating from your very core. If you've been around her...you know. Love ya @lindsaychristen Thanks for being my 80% right now;).
Morning stroll in Cusco. I often ponder about how much change our elders have seen in their lifetimes and how they navigate them.
Bhaktapur Mornings. The fleeting moments of calm before the streets fill with activity. Whether it's landscape, urban, nature or wildlife...Mornings are my favorite time of day to shoot. Curious to hear if this resonates with others? What time of day do you find yourself the most energized?
I do believe I found Narnia. El Dorado Canyon.
1858 or 2019? A tribute to the mining days of Colorado at the National Western Stock Show Parade in Downtown Denver. The annual parade is famous for the longhorn and photographers line up by the hundreds on 17th street to try and get the quintessential shot of the longhorns with Union Station in the background...but there is oh so much more to it.
The largest single elk herd I've ever seen. Funny, I was sitting down watching the news @9newsdenver, and they were interviewing a photographer in Eagle County who was talking about the decline in wildlife and said it had been 3 weeks since he had seen an elk. I looked up and saw this from the house! This is the backyard. Incredible juxtaposition with the city lights of Denver below.
Butcher shop. Kathmandu, Nepal. I hesitated in posting this as it doesn't fit the pretty Instagram photo mold, but lately I've often think about how disconnected from our food many of us in the 'west' are... Myself included. The sight of this might make you squirm or perhaps avert your eyes and scroll to the next photo in your feed. I'm sure I will get minimal likes on this one. All good...but I’d love to hear from those who want to engage. To most around the world, this is the everyday. I wish we had more markets like this. Honest thoughts from you all surrounding connection to food?
One of my favorite areas on earth. The Huayhuash.
The wonderful contours of ancient terraced lands and colorful wildflowers. Hualcayan, Peru.
That wondrously delicious desert cake. Layered to perfection
Not a bad lunch spot eh? Paso Pucaraju. Cordillera Blanca, Peru.
Looking for a singing bowl? I think this might be the place. Kathmandu.
Clouds have a unique way of turning what you see into a feeling.
Down on the bayou.
Puzzling. One of our favorite pastimes. A fun way of creative meditation. Mom @kostsally works into the night under a full moon from their home office with Denver below. We call this the control tower. Easy to see why.
The Malecón in Havana, a broad seawall stretching for 5 miles constructed by the U.S. beginning in 1901 to protect from the high tides but in reality, it became a vibrant and soulful place for all 'Habaneros' to socialize, fish, play music, drink, debate dance, play chess, people watch, be openly romantic and get some relative peace from the bustle of urban life. A quintessential heartbeat of Havana. It's pulse is palpable.. an authentic theater of the human experience. At sunset, it's particularly active with people sitting on the wall enjoying the ethereal light as the ocean takes on a beautiful violet hue, and old buildings lit by antiquated yellow lights collide with the newer glitzy blue tones and high rises in the wealthier Vedado barrio. Take a seat and stay awhile.
Landscape photography is a beautiful endeavor but I aim for it to take that extra leap into visual poetry. The Tsola river with the iconic Ama Dablam soaring to the skies.
Silence. Blending in as best you can. Listening. Be patient and allow things to fall into place. Gilded Barbet along the Madre Dios River in Peru.
