    Not necessarily at people, though I do some of that too. More... Things, of all types.

    See, Things don't sneeze, blink, cry, complain they look overweight, ask you to photoshop out their warts, etc... Things, for the most part, sit there and let you work.

    Here are some of the things (and people) I've pointed my camera at, in no particular order.

    1. Glendale UMC, Glendale, AZ
    GUMC_exterior_1_hires.jpg

    2. Closeup of a local resident. _DSC9633-Edit.jpg

    3. Fun in the woods with my absolute favorite models woodland_fun.jpg

    4. A barn, a windmill, and 2 galaxies. _DSC6863-Edit.jpg

    5. Monsoon! I absolutely love shooting weather. _DSC6307_lores_wm.jpg

    6.Tempe Center for the Arts, Tempe, AZ TCA_Bridge_loreswm.jpg

    7. The sky is full of light, if you know where to go to see it. (Mogollon Rim, Northern AZ) ten-x_sky_loreswm.jpg

    8. Sometimes you get lucky and can find it close by as well (Apache Junction, AZ) elvis_milky_way_loreswm.jpg

    9. All you have to do is go out and find it. (Sedona, AZ) chavez_crossing1.jpg

    It's been so long since I've seen the Milky Way.

    Outstanding photography! :clap Just as an aside, there are just a few more than "two" galaxies in those spectacular night shots. Very impressive!

    There are probably a percentage there that are other galaxies, but the majority of stars in this shot are a limb of our own Milky way. That, and Andromeda, were my targets for this image. :)

    Knowing I can be under the stars at night just by walking outside, and be in total darkness in 60-90 minutes is one reason I don't think I could ever live East of the MIssissppi.
