Something Old and Unexpected #mylens

I saw this old phone at the loading dock of the corporate office where I work. The building dates back to the 70s, but this phone is really my first proof of it’s history and legacy.

#mylens Mt. Taylor Volcano and Lava Beds

Standard

The first photo is a volcano that erupted repeatedly creating Mt. Taylor which is located off Interstate 40 near Grants, New Mexico. Below the mountain are miles of lava beds that show the random flow and distance the lava traveled. Mt. Taylor is a Stratovolcano and was active between 3 and 1.5 million years ago.

Taos, New Mexico is one of my spiritual touch points. It’s like dancing. It’s impossible to be happy in the middle of it! Here are some shots from the road today.

This Old House #mylens

When traveling through West Texas this old house kept calling me. Pulling me actually. I finally had to pull over and grab a shot so that I could keep a piece of her with me. #mylens

Claudia: A Photo Essay

An amazing story and I had to share it.

Most of the football pictures I’ve taken in Brazil are pretty self explanatory…  there’s a kick around going on somewhere in Rio and not too much more to add. But this one troubles me a bit. The story behind it isn’t a good one. The mother of the family, Claudia da Silva Ferreira, was shot in March by police who thought she was an armed drug dealer during a shoot-out. She was in the wrong place at the wrong time. She later died in shocking circumstances, falling from the police van on the way to hospital. I visited their home a couple of weeks after it happened with a colleague who was interviewing Claudia’s husband and this was taken as we were leaving and the kids began playing again… a brief moment of normality at a tragic time for the family.
