Justin's Palette

Several years back I spent a week in Canyon de Chelly on a horseback painting trip where I was the sole photographer. One afternoon shortly after lunch our Navajo guide, Justin Tso, set up to paint and I caught this colorful still life of his tubes of oil paint and palette.

Found Art

On an exterior wall of a closed gallery in Rinconada just south of Taos I photographed these bedsprings displayed as some kind of artistic statement. I liked the design and was struck their strong graphic quality.

Salt Marsh

In early fall with evening light the salt grass in Moody Beach, Maine wove a sweeping, glowing pattern against the brackish water.

Leather Tough

Joe Graves is a real Mountain Man. Born and raised in Taos Joe is part cowboy, part miner and a big part craftsman. His buddy Lindsey says he can make anything and that he once carved his own false teeth out of wood and tied the things in with fishing line. Later he got real choppers in Mexico. Did I mention Joe's tough?
