Chicago Sights












We had a lot of fun in Chicago. Of all the pictures I took, I think the one's with the goblets are the most creative.

Playing with light


I was playing with my camera around the christmas tree lights. I decided to do a long exposure and move the camera around in circles. This picture turned out pretty cool.

Ogden 25th Street

















We decided yesterday to go up to Ogden's Historic 25th Street to take some fun pictures. We were fortunate to have perfect weather and lighting. The kids were really patient with me as I continuously snapped pictures of them. As you can see, they had fun climbing on things, throwing leaves, and sitting on statues. I would definitely recommend taking family pictures at Ogden's Historic 25th Street. Let me know if you want details.

Thanksgiving Point & Yellow Fork Canyon


These two pictures (above) were taken at the Thanksgiving Point tropical room. The lighting was just perfect for me to get a time delayed waterfall picture. I love how the water splashes into a blur at the bottom.





These three pictures were taken up Yellow Fork Canyon. Most of the leaves have already changed colors, but it is fun to see the little things like the moss and the berries hanging around still to create contrast in a picture.
Also, it was interesting to take the picture of my son, with his green sweater, against the red/brown backdrop of plants that used to be green.

Flower

One of several beautiful flowers left in my neighbor's flower bed. Thanks to the Searle's for letting me hang out in their front yard to snap pictures.

Blue Boys


The other night we drove around the industrial area of West Jordan out by the brick factory. We found several buildings that have metal siding. I had the kids jump out and stand by the wall while I snapped pictures. I think the color contrast turned out the best with these.

Mountain Colors

This picture was taken from the tram on the way up to the top of Snowbird. It really is fun to see the fall colors, with the deep green pine trees and then a skiff of snow on the ground.


I had to walk through the snowy forest to get this picture. The sound of the stream was so peaceful, and it really added to the picture.
