Baby Lydia

“The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.”
― Johnny Depp

I had the good fortune of photographing beautiful 6-month old Lydia at the park yesterday. It was a fun session, as Lydia is a very expressive little girl with a wonderful demeanor. Thanks to Jenna and Jon for providing me the opportunity to photograph their darling daughter.

Sunset on the Oquirrh Mountains

Driving home the other night, I caught this shot of the sun setting across the Salt Lake Valley behind the Oquirrh Mountains. The nicest thing about this shot is that it hides the usually visible devastation of nature and life caused on these mountains by the deepest open-pit mine in the world, Rio Tinto’s Bingham Canyon copper mine.

Constructing an Abstract

Eventually, these lines, shapes, textures and values will be morphed into the new Federal Courthouse building in downtown Salt Lake City. At this point in the construction effort, however, I’m enjoying the abstract art the workers are creating.

Ooh, It Makes Me Wonder

And it’s whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.
