Had a wonderful day yesterday with my photography workshop students documenting Alta Lakes Ghost Town. Special thanks to Telluride Historical Museum, TellurideArts and Dave’s Mountain Tours!

If there was ever any doubt about how badass the Czech are, here is a play by play of a grandpa pressing 450 pounds. Kutna Hora, CZ July 2014. 

Finally getting to begin to look at the photos I took in the last month. I met this man on the St. Charles Bridge in Prague, July 2014. When I asked if he is or was Catholic, noting the obvious iconography he looked at me like I was insane, ‘no!” My bad, don’t know what could have given me that idea…

Moonrise! New camera, zoom lens. No tripod needed.

 This image of a mining era outhouse, much like the structure itself, isn’t very interesting. What I find so curious is that this is one of several examples I’ve seen of outhouse’s still standing while houses and other buildings in the vicinity have since collapsed and begun to decompose. There has got to be a joke in there somewhere. Anyone got a good joke or idea why this would be?

I enjoy living in a town with access to so much of its recent history, and being able to hike to to old mines and remains gives an average albeit beautiful hike that much more to marvel at. That said, there is a lot of waste with no aesthetic or meaningful value left to rust, in this case along and in the local streams. I’d freely volunteer to help clean it up if there such a movement, I couldn’t do it alone as much of this metal is quite heavy. In the meantime I will continue to document the remains in the area: the big, beautiful, the trash and treasure.

I’ve been so busy I hadn’t had a chance to look at the photos I took for a wedding in Cabo. Super lavish, super destination-y. 

Today I saw a man jump out of a plane, and fly! Thanks MountainFILM.
