stunning sky and reflections -- very nice color work.

Richard Campbell on June 16, 2009

Thanks for your encouraging comments, Pennington. I'm already looking forward to my next trip. (just wish I could make a living doing this)

Pennington Geis on June 16, 2009

Yeah, don't we all.

At an event I was photographing recently, someone in the crowd began a conversation about digital cameras -- and opined that digital cameras have made it harder to make a living at it. He had been salaried staff photographer at some pretty darn good magazines and newspapers, but now those same publishers use more and more freelance work at a fraction of the cost.

Sigh. Guess I'll keep that day job.

I was three years ago there. The smell was really unpleasant. And then the million little bow ties.
