A friend and I go out every Wednesday when we’re both in town, and we call it culture night.  We look at what’s happening and try to do something we have never done before, or rarely do.

In the past, we’ve been to jazz clubs, comedy shows, we’ve played at open mics, we buskered in downtown Boulder with our accordion/ukelele duo, we’ve gone to auctions and we’re always up for new adventures.

We went to an arcade pub recently.  Hey, it something we don’t often do, so it counts.  I invited another friend along, too.  And brought my Leica M3 with 50mm Summcron DR.

It’s a treat to have a regularly schedule night to find new things to do.  If you have a night and a friend, give it a try.  Bring your camera, too!

I have this project I’ve been working on the last six months called The Wise Photo Project.  I photograph older folks who often don’t have anyone taking their photo.  Most of the attention is on the kids, and as one older man once told me, “The older you get the more invisible you become.”  So my goal is to photograph them and print and frame their images big so that they can be shared on their family’s walls.

Here’s a series I shot today.  It was so much fun, and he was such a character.  If you want to find out more and get a portrait done, contact me.

I’m a 28-year pro photojournalist with many awards, but who cares?  It’s your photo that matters most. Please see my work:

I’d love to be your family or business’s photographer.

I like shooting in urban settings more than in nature.  I like the way elements can come together in an instant when I’m walking about shooting street.  This shot for me works well only because we can see the driver in the car on the right, and there is a car turning in front of me to help balance the foreground.  Plus the bikers, of course.  Lovely documentation of life in the early 2000s that will be looked at in 100 years, and they’ll find our modes of transportation primitive, I’m sure.

I make a point when I’m crossing streets to shoot between cars and into lanes that would ordinarily be difficult to shoot in.  I love her big Mercedes, and again, that I can see her face.

I need to take a hike on concrete!
