Inside Out, 2009

Performers reduced to silhouettes at night through the canvas tent walls.

It’s an abstract review of the performance, the band silhouetted against the canvas walls of the tent. It made for an interesting composition, especially with the guitar being the clearest silhouette in the image.

A Date at the Fair

A Date at the Fair

Those old-fashioned street fairs are fun in the daytime, rides turning in the heat of August, too much cotton candy and pop taking their toll…but for all their fun in the day, they are magical at night, the lighted rides turning against a starry sky, the attractions an oasis of colorful neon and incandescent in the midst of an inky darkness of streets, then just as suddenly as it sprung from nothing in a parking lot, it’s gone, leaving only darkness and cool September nights.

In this photo, a couple on a date wanders toward the rides.

From back in my first year of photo blogging! This event is coming up again, and I hope they have the rides for great night photos.

I was photographing those pumpkins and happened to look up the trail, and the eerie light from the spotlights and the fire truck parked at the next entrance up looked like a scene from “Paranormal” or “Blair Witch” or any other movie shot in the woods at night and scared the heck out of me. Here are the first two. I’m not sure you can see the detail in the trail at the bottom of the photo.

I am deeply involved the the Carnegie Arts & Heritage Festival as the PR director and as an exhibiting artist, and it’s a feast for the eyes to photograph. It was a month ago, and really knocked my schedule off the block, but it took nearly this long to review all the images from the event. I’ll be posting images from the festival in the next few days.

Nope, it’s snow cone flavoring. I was at Rock the Quarry, an annual event and fundraiser on the Panhandle Trail.

Below, a very experienced snow cone maker concentrates on pouring the blue-raspberry flavoring evenly over the ice for maximum blue lips in the consumer.
