  3. This is Mardi Gras - The French Quarter, New Orleans. This was taken using film in 2002 which was before hurricane Katrina struck. If you like huge parties that go all day and night, you should check this out.

    I never tire hearing kind words about my photos, thank you. :) I have been to New Orleans once (pre Katrina). That was before I was serious about photography but I did take one shot I was happy with. I’m going to try to dig that up and post it. But yes, I would love to get there again. Such an interesting and beautiful place.

     
  5. We Are Stardust - For billions of years we are nothing but interstellar matter, then for a brief moment in time we are allowed to live before our minds and bodies are once again returned to the universe. Make every day count. This photo was taken at the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Cemetery in Grass Valley, Oregon. By far the scariest shoot I have ever been on.

    Thank you! You should definitely visit sometime. Lots to do here! I would visit during the summer or early fall though.

    Collins Beach was pretty eccentric considering it is a nude beach. Also on the Fremont bridge with no auto traffic was pretty unusual. I have had to work my way around fences here and there to get at places where people aren’t normally allowed. But I do have a couple of surprise places I will be shooting soon that would also make this list.

    Thank you so much! Here are the GPS coordinates for the entrance to Lost Boy Beach. There is just a tiny sign saying something about a trail and the trail head is easy to miss.

  12. The UFO of Collins Beach - Along the treeline of Collins Beach on Sauvie Island just outside of Portland, Oregon, sits a mysterious and legendary vessel that hasn’t seen action in many years. ¬†Here it lies tethered by cable to a nearby tree becoming fodder for local graffiti artists.

    We talked and decided to split the state evenly between us. ;)
