Whispers….do you hear them?

Does anyone both hear and act on “whispers” like I do? I find that when I listen to the faintest glimpse of an idea……I often find genius.

I’m driving to Santa Fe New Mexico and on my way I’m passing through Price, Utah. Out of the blue I get the idea to photograph a sculpture “now”. This is a piece that I don’t have a good photograph of the finished bronze. It’s inconvenient, I’d rather wait, perhaps find a better location, it’s freezing outside. But then I get the prompting a second time. And from past experience, I know that the prompting won’t be repeated again.

I set up my tripod and used my 35mm camera and took a dozen pictures.

I will take these photos home, upload to my computer and Photoshop the best one with the background of my choice.

“Where the Buffalo Roam”

What is more American than the bison. Years ago, when I was studying these dudes, it was news to me that they roamed from Canada to Mexico and from the Rocky Mountains to the Mississippi River. Legend has it that these animals migrated north to what is now known as “Buffalo Minnesota”, (because it was shallow there), and crossed the Mississippi River to Eastern grazing lands.

This is how you scrub your buffalo…..at the car wash.
