This old backpack has seen a lot of the world.

I have owned this backpack for about 35 years. I most recently used it for a quick overnight in the sand dunes here in Colorado. The Great Sand Dunes National Park is a really amazing place. I thought I would do a quick test animation using this old relic of a backpack and preserve it deeper in my memory. Its really not the most comfortable backpack so I think its time for a new one…

I photographed Bill Romanowski on a couple of different occasions for EAS and also did a shoot for he and his wife Julie. I had the chance to shoot some 4×5 Agfa Scala for this portrait. I really loved that film!

Shannon Sharpe photographed in 1997 just prior to the Denver Broncos first Super Bowl win.

This image was created in late 1997 for EAS and Bill Phillips just prior to the Denver Broncos first Super Bowl victory. In Super Bowl XXXII the Denver Broncos defeated the Green Bay Packers 31-24. Shannon Sharpe had one of his best seasons in 1997 with 1,107 yards, 72 receptions and 3 touchdowns. I had the opportunity to photograph Shannon on several other occasions.

Tao, another holiday portrait…

Tao is an old friend of my daughters. He has lived all over the world and we were lucky to see him over the holidays.

I am getting a bit low on my stash of Type 55 Polaroid. I will miss it when its gone. I recently ordered a fair amount of Kodak Ektar 100, and we’ll see how that goes. The Aero Liberator is working out well, talk about spontaneous!

A Christmas portrait of my daughter Taylor. She has been a bit elusive lately so this is a special one. Thanks to John Minnicks and his Aero Liberator. A really fun camera!
