I have a new niece. Abigail or Abby for short. These were a few polaroids that I shot of her when she was less than 24 hours old (around 19 hours old to be specific). Hopefully there will be a few more worth posting after I develop the additional pictures that I shot using film.

This is a picture I took of my photo professor, John Telford, in Death Valley in 2009. John just retired from teaching photography at BYU after 20 years. John was a wonderful educator that touched so many lives. If you did not have the opportunity to learn from John then you missed out on a special treat. I know that I owe a tremendous deal to John and his efforts. The photo world is a richer place due to his contributions. Thank you for everything you have done!
...and continue to do. I didn't let him enjoy his retirement very long. He is now teaching a class for me at UVU. I had missed being in his classes so much that I have sat in on his class every day this semester.

Another long forsaken negative that I finally got around to. This is from a spring break trip with some students in 2009 taken from Bakers Beach.

When people discuss looking at a problem differently, I take it literally. My camera of choice is large format. For those that don't know, when light passes through a lens it inverts everything and so that is what I see when looking through my camera. Upside down and backwards definitely gives you a new perspective on what you want to photograph. So if people accuse me of thinking backwards they only have it half right. (p.s. this is Mooney Falls at Havasupai)

This is a recently found, never worked on negative from 2007 taken at Havasupai. The spot in this photograph no longer exists and a new canyon and large waterfall have taken its place called Rock Falls. (Although this would now be 100+ feet in the air from current ground level) There was a large flood a few years ago that diverted the river and carved a new path/canyon. Ironic that I took this picture due to my amazement of the scale of erosion that occurs here. How little did I know.

The west shore of Utah Lake is a popular place for appliances to go and die. I pulled the title of the post from the name of a Roger Fenton photograph from the Crimean War (Just checking to see if photo students and photo historians are paying attention.)

I started doing some dyptics of the lake. I wasn't quite sure what I wanted them for but they intrigued me so I kept making them. So I figured I would post a few and see what people thought.

The biggest threat to the June Sucker (previous post) is the common carp. The carp are an introduced species that have taken over and completely changed the ecosystem. Over 90% of the biomass in the lake is now carp. I went out with the fisherman in charge of removing them. Insane! Never seen so many fish in my life. I'll post a few more pictures soon.

This is an endangered species indigenous to Utah Lake called a June Sucker. (Yes it is still alive and yes I shot it 4x5. This will be the most guilty and quickest I will ever do a 4x5 portrait...well, fish picture anyways)
