I’ve been invited to do a show at the Utah County Art Gallery. My work will be on display from July 28, 2013 through August 30, 2013 at the Gallery in the Utah County Health and Justice building. I’m sharing the show with Howard Fullmer, an Illustrator. We met while judging the Photography and Digital Art contest at the gallery in 2011. It’s nice I only have to come up with 40 pieces and not 70-80. There will be an Artists’ Reception on August 2, 2013 from 6-9 pm at the gallery. If you are in the area I hope to see you there.
I had the opportunity to travel to Turkey in May 2013. My good friend Larry Calof and I joined a National Geographic Expedition that lasted for 12 days. We had great time, saw lots of very interesting stuff and learned many things about the history and culture of the area that had been skipped over in school. It wasn’t as photographically oriented as we had hoped, but it was very enjoyable. Our guides and fellow travelers were great. Here’s a slideshow I put together from the trip. We were fortunate that we returned home about a week before the riots and demonstrations started in Turkey.
Edit 5/3/14: I finally got around to posting the Turkey images.
The Animal Ark is a wild animal rescue and sanctuary site outside of Reno. They take in animals that are unable to survive on their own in the wild for various reasons. We spent an afternoon looking at some of their animals and then got to watch the “Cheetah Run”. The staff has discovered that if they have the Cheetah run once a week they live about twice as long as other Cheetah in captivity. We were able to photography the three Cheetah they have there. They look much faster in person than watching a National Geographic episode.
