I'm back, and with flying color!




Hey blog viewers, I know its been more than a month since I posted. I've tried to stay away from my blog to focus on my own work and vision. As you may notice, my blog has a new name... I never really liked the old one. And yes, I document dangerously. So don't worry, I have plenty of pictures to post. Keep checking back in the next few days/weeks. With that said:

I went down to Spanish Fork, Utah over the weekend to photograph the Holi Festival at the Krishna Temple and to continue a small project in Ogden, Utah. Holi is a holiday celebrated in India to welcome Spring. People are supposed to go outside and greet others they have not seen in a long time. Indians also throw colored powder and water at each other. In Spanish Fork, the Holi Festival is a day of celebration with traditional Indian dancers and food. Holi is also the "unofficial" spring break for BYU students. Thousands attended the celebration, and I really felt sorry for the clean-up crew. Enjoy the color.

Hi--I found you!
I would be the awesome girl behind you in that last picture. Do you have any more pics I can look at? I think you took a lot of me and my friends.

Hi! I think you took some pictures of me and my friends too. Did you have a few that were up and now are down? The girl in the picture where someone is pointing at her forehead, that's my girlfriend, and there was a picture of her up with me looking on at her and now it's missing. Could I get a copy of that somehow?

Andrei, I think that is you in the 12th picture. I would drop you an email, but then I would have to open my account and type something up and click send. Don't worry, though, the pigeon is on its way.
