Arizona State Fair // Kodak Portra 400

“The smells were as many as the thousands of colors we saw that night, carnival-festival foods, ferris wheels, flashing ballon lights of every color – we took sight of them all. Laughing through the paved shimmering roads, looking to our left and right beholding such colors and shapes. And then we realized how small we were when we towered high above the flickering festival lights, remembering where we came from and how blessed we were. The sweetness and joyfulness of life interconnected at one point.”

Enjoy. Be inspired. Do good. Be generous.

Phoenix Art Museum // Kodak Gold 200

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” ~Albert Schweitzer

An outing with some creative folks at the Phoenix Art Museum while visiting Ai Weiwei’s A Circle of Zodiac Heads: Gold and some other exhibits. I photographed our creative adventure on Kodak Gold 200 film. Enjoy with your eyes and heart.

Lockett Meadow Flagstaff Aspens // Kodak Portra 400

“The Aspen trees will clap for You. The Mountains will bow down before You.”

Fall brings all kinds of golden feelings. Living in Phoenix, we obviously don’t get to experience the fullness of autumn which is why we travel. Here’s some of the wilderness of Flagstaff at Lockett Meadow captured on Kodak Portra 400 film. Enjoy.
