Star Trails at Monument Valley

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Monument Valley is a beautifully serene corner of the Earth nestled along the border of Arizona and Utah.

I travelled to the American southwest, with science journalist Dan Falk, for an extended weekend designed specifically to photograph the Moon and Venus rising above the West and East Mitten Buttes of Monument Valley. The last photo I took that night, which was just before the sunrise, revealed a stunning mixture of blues and oranges in the eastern sky.

Childhood Star Trails

Monday, November 24, 2014

During a quiet afternoon, near the end of the difficult summer of 1995, I stood in this location (close to our family's farm) and finally accepted the reality that my mom was going to lose her battle with cancer. Within a few weeks...she was gone.

During this past summer, I felt compelled to make the 2 hour drive to this location to photograph the night sky. Weather conditions weren't exactly crystal clear, but it gave me a chance to capture a few long exposures, gaze up at the sky, and think about the biggest star of my life that burned out too long ago.

Star Trails at Mike Tyson's Abandoned Ohio Mansion

Thursday, September 18, 2014

This is the front gate of Mike Tyson’s abandoned mansion in rural Ohio.

Yes, he had a mansion in Ohio, but lost it in the late 1990s on the road to bankruptcy in 2004.

Elizalde Cement Factory

Friday, August 2, 2013

The Elizalde Cement Company from the Philippines built this facility near Beatty, Nevada, a few years before the outbreak of World War II. There is little solid information about the facility, but tidbits of information have become available in recent years. Due to logistical issues (economics of the time, distance, escalating labour costs, inferior cement) the plant closed shortly after opening.

In subsequent years, information about the abandoned facility is mostly limited to rumours about a land swap with the US government for Subic Bay.
