Stars Over the Arches

We pulled into The Arches National Park in Utah last night, after a full day of driving and exploring for canyons.  There wasn’t a park ranger at the gate and the entrance was open. Tired and worn from a long day, we decided to at least find the first observation point so I could should Nate something he’d never seen. This was just about midnight pulling in.

We came to the first observation point in the park, Park Avenue Viewpoint (fitting) and got out of the car. When Nate looked up, he got to observe, for the first time, a sky full of stars and the Milky Way Galaxy. He laid on the ground and took it all in while I experimented with settings for night photography.

I had forgot to pack my shutter release cable so this was the best I could do with a 30 sec exposure.

From my rooftop in New York City in lower Manhattan, Battery Park City. When I filmed this I knew I would be leaving New York in about a month and a half. I thought seeing in later would make me a little sad to miss the rooftop, my apartment and living in NYC, but it doesn’t.

Zombies and Politics

I tried to buy some ammo for my handgun yesterday, for the first time in over six months. No one, and I mean no one has any on the shelf to sell. People have been making runs on Ammo since Newtown and the newest debate over gun legislation. Which, is interesting, considering no one is talking about limiting ammo sales, especially for a common .9mm.

Brother’s Voyage

My sister visited from Texas. It’s the first time she’s come up from to visit me in Oklahoma since I have come back in 2009. She finally brought my painting she made me years ago, 2006 I think? It was very popular in her studio so I know it was hard for her to part with. It’s a great painting.
