Uprooted – Olympic National Park

Captured on the Eastern boundary of Olympic National Park. in July 1985, the uprooted tree, bleached by the elements looked to me like the rack of a prehistoric moose or elk. I made 2 frames, one in landscape mode and the other in portrait mode. After much deliberation, landscape mode won out.

I happened upon this collection of old pottery consisting of clay, volcanic rock, and stone in a folk village. I liked the polygonal arrangement coming out from the base of the tree with leaves and pewter rocks in the foreground. The pestle and mortar on the right is the biggest I’ve ever seen. The mortar is stone so it must weigh a ton and the pestle is the size of a Louisville Slugger.

Photography is a strong tool, a propaganda device, and a weapon for the defense of the environment…and therefore for the fostering of a healthy human race and even very likely for its survival.

This image was captured on the US/Mexico border. The Dreamer Grosbeak pictured here came to the US at the age of one year and he cannot sing in Spanish. His desert oasis north of the border is all he knows. Do we really need a border wall? How would the same image look with brick as a background?

Rubber bands tossed on a light box creating a disarray of line and fantastical color, spectrally floating above the box.

This not so gregarious prairie dog is munching his food in solitude, away from the fray…and loving it!
