Ritter Springs

Last Sunday, I was out for another field trip with the camera club.  Fall color, at least in this neck of the woods, is still elusive.

Southeast Missouri

There are a lot of places in Missouri that I think are pretty special.  Yesterday, a small group of dedicated photographers and I visited three of them: Alley Spring and Mill, Johnson’s Shut-ins, and Elephant Rocks.  When I’m wandering through these locations, memories and images from past visits weave their way through to the present. It produces a layered and introspective experience.

Bennett Springs

It’s fall. Finally. Temps are edging downward, and fall color is starting to grace the forest’s canopy.  The trees, unfortunately, were only beginning their abandonment of summer green when the camera club visited Bennett Springs State Park last Saturday.  Even with the less than stellar colors, we managed to have  a great time, and take a few pictures to treasure.

2013 Worldwide Photowalk

Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk is an event that gathers photographers from all over the world – some 28,000 of them – to photograph things they find during, yes, a walk.  Today, I led the the Photowalk here in Springfield during admittedly trying conditions – continuous rain.  Fortunately, ten other hardy people made it out and photographed through the rain.  Many thanks for making the Photowalk thoroughly fun!
