I'm not sure what I was going for on this one...
Photographers do what they do for many reasons. Because of that, sometimes I just like photographing photographers working.
I took this picture at the Oklahoma City Memorial. This young woman had set up large, wooden carvings of words... Love, Hope, Peace... around the plaza and was artistically photographing them with the various elements of the memorial bathed in a red glowing sunset; the long shadows creating their own drop-shadow effect.
I wish I could have seen the final results, but I didn't want to disturb her in her work...
I wish these things for everyone.
Say What you want about Buffalo. This region has its problems and many of them aren't getting any better. But one thing I can say for it, it is filled with some amazing beauty. Natural, man made, occasional pleasant surprises - what have you - I haven't found too many places that compare to here.
Despite my own struggles in living here, it will always be home....
These photos are just some of the images I've captured over the years. I have a huge collection, and will add more in my blog over time. Hopefully they will inspire some of the love you have for this region as well as inspire others to come here and see it for themselves.
Daunting and challenging at times, but we love a good challenge and we are experts at what we do!
