Konza Prairie

A few weeks ago (yes, I am just now finally getting around to sharing) I went for a quick hike in the Konza Prairie. I had apparently just missed the controlled burns there, and was struck by how bare this landscape now looked. Also, I am indeed aware that I am slightly obsessed with images of vanishing points, so that is mostly what I shot while there. The contrast between the untouched path and burned land around it fascinated me that day.

107/365 – Clear

The title of this is somewhat ironic for me right now, since not much is clear at the moment. With my critique coming up in less than a week I decided tonight that I am scrapping my originally idea and starting from nothing. I have no clue what to do for my project, and it has been wearing down on me all day. Which is why I have yet another simple, night-time candle shot. Tomorrow I am getting up early to drive around and just shoot in hopes of finding inspiration, so at the very least I will have something different for my 365.


310/365 – Holding On

**Wednesday, November 15

I couldn’t think of anything to take a picture of, so I said to Whitney, “can I take a picture of your hands?” She said sure, and suggested she hold her new candle, which I then suggested we put her candle in my bird-cage; such a group effort! It took forever to edit this picture, which is why it isn’t getting up until today. I worked on it for close to two hours last night, and still wasn’t happy with it, so I decided to leave it until today.

294/365 – Match

**Saturday, October 30

Last night I shot two events for the magazine that I shot for during the summer. It was a bit crazy doing two in one night, but for the most part went smoothly. When I got done with all that though I was pretty tired and feeling too lazy for a picture, and Elliot said I should take a picture of fire. So I had him light a match, and I flipped my lens around, and this is what I ended up with. I didn’t have my card reader with me so I had to wait until today to get it uploaded.

149/365 – Coals

My absolute favorite thing about summer is grilling out. This summer I have grilled out at least 2-3 times a week, usually just by myself. I love it. Tonight Elliot and I grilled some burgers and corn for dinner, a perfect summer meal in my opinion.
