    Default Girdwood in late July [Part 1 of 3]

    I spent a couple days in late July photographing the Girdwood Fine Arts Camp, which is an institution that for the past 24 years has spent two weeks each summer bringing young people from ages 5 to 18 into contact with professional artists. Primarily I was photographing Jim Kaiser's sessions that work with stained glass. And a major consideration were some past projects that built huge 12 foot in diameter flower pots using culvert pipe with stained glass patterns on the sides. But in addition, the flowers themselves were interesting, and so were various wild plants growing along the roadside.

    Interesting comment! It matches my mind set when that was shot. After a dozen or fifteen shots of those particular plants, I wasn't sure that any of them were going to be able to show what I wanted. (Turned out there were a couple others that worked out above my expectations, but I didn't know that then.) It suddenly occurred to me that I could get underneath and shoot with only the cloudy sky as the background! I took one shot and knew I'd nailed what I wanted. So I did shoot a couple more just to be sure! :-)

    I shoot plants when I'm bored because there are no animals, and animals when I can't shoot people...

    Here's a portrait of Jim Kaiser. It's not outdoors, but trust me that he's an example of Alaska's wildlife!
