I was on Antelope Island, a 45 square mile island in the Great Salt Lake in Utah, eating lunch with my family when a lone pelican came over to see what we were up to. Somebody threw him a chip and pretty soon about 30 more showed up and we threw out more bread and chips for them to eat. I took a bunch of pics.
So I took my camera with me the other night when I went out to one of the local bars. A poker tourney in action! A girl named Jackie showed me her films on her iphone. Pretty cool! My buddy Trevor throwing some darts!
Photography is a special privilege. I feel lucky to be able to take photos, stash them for awhile, then look through them and be reminded of the events surrounding the moment when the picture was made. This sunset picture is not really very good. But it was taken when I was with a group of really special people on a really special day in my life.

Starck, reached at the Bordeaux oyster farm […]
So I visited the ancient Mayan Ruins of Tulum the last time I was down in Mexico, but unfortunately I had barely any time to shoot before getting ushered out by the guards. It was almost closing time when I got there. The Tulum ruins are the third most-visited archaeological site in Mexico, after Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza. It is popular for the picturesque view of the Caribbean and a location just 128 km (80 miles) south of the popular […]
My friend Madelyn took me to a bar in the East Village called “The Telephone” and they had these cool old red phone booths, so I had to take a few pictures. The pic above was taken by her friend Scott after I set the camera up. Of course since we were in a bar called “The Telephone” I had to get a pic of a cell phone.
