Stock Images...

Yesterday I was at my wife's work. They were having water day with the kids and I had fun taking photographs. It's amazing once you start looking into stock photography what you can actually find in places you go. There was all sorts of things, all over the playground, out in the field, in the trees... I've always loved doing macro photographs, but some of the things I discovered as subjects I think have been my funnest to date! :) With the sun back lighting a basketball hoop I had to have it!

hen I investigated the Palo Verde tree's along a back wall I discovered the pea pods in a very unique shape, could it be the famed golden ratio in which this ball is clustered? Have any of you ever seen a pea pod to a Palo Verde tree curl in such a way before?

Perhaps one of the most intriguing picture, at in my opinion, is the splitter connection on the hoses that fed the water to the slip'n'slides and the large blow up water slides. The kids had so much fun I wish I could post some of the pictures of their faces as they went through the water spraying down on the slides...

Anyway I hope you all have found these pictures curious enough, and maybe even inspiring, hah. Perhaps I'll add more later, but these will have to do for now.

Summer Time Blues

Everyone knows that summers can be pretty slow for photography...

However in Arizona the desert really comes alive. It's when all the plants
actually turn green, despite the 110+ temperatures, the lack of rain
and the massive amounts of pollution being dumped into the air from
Phoenicians ;)

So I'm doin this cause I want y'all to buy my photos and I heard that bloggin's pretty cool so I'm giving it a whirl.. those of you that been doin it a while can probably tell i'm a n00b to this, but I'm sure like everything else, it'll get better with time ;) Here's some photo's, if you wanna buy em, give me a call, or e-mail ;)

These ones are from a trip I took with Me Espocita - Robyn, to HorseShoe Bend outside of Page Arizona. I'm an idiot too cause I didn't realize Antelope Canyon was there as well and didn't plan for that in the trip!
