Another award for Jesse Valley from Viewbug

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

This time a photo taken with my iPhone 4s  (“Spoon Bridge and Cherry”) was selected as one of the judge’s favorite photos. I have been very pleased with the quality of the photos my iPhone takes, and often use it for this type of photography. You can see the original link here.

The photo I responded to is this:

Fine Art Photo for “The Meal”

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Today I made my first contribution to The Art House Co-op, for a project called “The Meal.” Basically, there is going to be an exhibition of self portraits of people and their meal from February 24th at 12 pm EST. According to the website, there were over 4400 contributors to this project, which will be exhibited in Brooklyn, NY and made available online starting April 5th.

My meal was a breakfast quesadilla, and Toby was eating his dog food.

 

Fine Art Photo at Lutsen Resort

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

I was recently informed that the following photograph I took at the Lutsen Resort was selected to be displayed in the Superior Ballroom. I had submitted it for a contest earlier in the year, and I am excited to see it the next time we visit Minnesota’s North Shore.

UPDATE: I also found out that they used a picture of the wedding party skipping rocks that I photographed in their current brochure! Here is a photo of it that I just took with my iPhone.

Now is the time to go out and see the flowers at the Peace Garden near Lake Harriet. Or any of the great public gardens, really. They are beautiful!

I love the color the sky gets shortly after sunset, especially contrasted with the warm glow of tungsten lights. It is an amazing time to take pictures of cities and architecture.

We had a pretty awesome storm come through last night that dropped hail bigger than golfballs. My fine art photo of the week is of the approaching thunderhead that dropped hailed on us—just look at the vertical thrust of it!
