Ice Painting 3

Ice Painting 3

Ice paintings are one of my favorite rainy afternoon photography project. It’s easy to accomplish. First, freeze a container of water into ice. A disposable food container works great. Then, set up some lights or use natural light if it’s available. Slowly add your favorite colors of food coloring or acrylic paints and take macro […]


Rust Bug

Rust Bug

Part of the reason I chose to come to the rust belt to shoot a photography project is that I love the aesthetic of decay. This image of a vw bug in Erie, Co caught my eye for its different stages of corrosion.


Engine Problems?

Engine Problems?

Since I was 16 I have  been in love with Volkswagons. I’ve had 5 beetles, 4 buses (one of which I traveled through Europe in) and a VW Thing. When I came across this awesome VW yard today, I was immediately drawn to this image. I’ve spent many hours with my head and hands in […]


Colorful Como

Colorful Como

Como, Colorado has to be one of the most “colorful” places to shoot in Colorado. The small town is filled with little visual treasures like this one. I always find something new when I go to Como!


Como Cemetery

Como Cemetery

This was taken from Como Cemetery, just outside of Como, Colorado. Como is an old mining town that was very popular because  the railroad passed through on it’s way to Breckenridge. At one time the town even had two newspapers, multiple saloons and hotels. Much of the town  burned and was never re-built. Now, there […]


Water Tower

Water Tower

This great water tower was along the dirt road that led us to our campsite that was on a dramatic hill. Sleeping was so difficult that we had to move our site the next day. Never camp sleeping on a hill! It made for a good story and this dramatic photograph.


Muse

Muse

This photo was the image that sparked my male escort series, DisClosure. I met Ronnie in the Fall of 1998.  I was sitting in the park writing in my journal and he comes up to me and sits across the picnic table from me. He asked what I was writing and offered to share some […]


Denver Diner

Denver Diner

Denver Diner is another iconic business in Denver, Colorado. From the corner of Speer and Colfax, this eatery hosts lots of late night patrons seeking comfort food. This photo was taken as part of a photography series based on Colfax Ave which is now showing in the Aurora MLK library. It was also recently chosen […]


Millennium Bridge

Millennium Bridge

The Millennium Pedestrian Bride near downtown Denver is quickly becoming an iconic symbol for the city. Economic growth has boomed around it for the last 8 years and for me it has come to symbolize our coastal envy as a city. I really love the lines of this piece. My eye never gets bored.


Mountain Living

Mountain Living

We came across this trailer in Como, Colorado during a camping trip in the area. Although it might not be the ideal structure to live in, the view was amazing! Who chooses to live here? What is the history of this time and weather damaged structure?


Ice Painting 1

Ice Painting 1

This photo is part of a series of photos that I did where I use paint and ice to create unique and changing landscapes of color. I love the temporary aspect of the concept. Every second the composition changes and evolves. Colors mixing and changing.


Casa Bonita

Casa Bonita

This is the last photo of a series of photos chosen by friends using random numbers. This image was chosen, in part by my younger brother, Josh Ball with the # 360. Casa Bonita is a landmark in Denver. Every kid who grows up here has to go there at least once. The food is […]


Resolution

Resolution

This Photo was chosen, in part, by Dean McCready with the # 42 As we head into the new year, many of us will have resolutions of getting into shape.  I am personally sore from a P90x workout that we’ve been doing. This photo of runner 1054 was taken during the Colfax Marathon near the capitol […]


Como

Como

This photo was taken of a truck in the town of Como, Co. If you’ve never been to Como, you have to go! It’s the strangest little town that looks like it could be abandoned, but it’s not.  Many of the houses look like a junk yard office. It’s filled with visual treats for photographers. […]


Changing Landscape

Changing Landscape

I took this photo somewhere in Oregon as we drove home from Portland recently. What made me immediately pull over as I saw this was the juxtaposition of the old rusted building with the wind turbines in the background. I realized that new technologies and our quest to be a “green” world, will ultimately change […]


Sleep

Sleep

After a 22 hour car drive from Portland, all I can think of is sleep. I thought this piece communicted that well. Good night until tomorrow!


PS Lounge

PS Lounge

The PS Lounge sign is a landmark image in Denver. This photo was taken as part of a series I did based on Colfax Ave. I really love the lines, color and basic shapes of this piece.


Crystal Capitol

Crystal Capitol

I love the way the snow and trees in this photograph frame the dome of the Capitol Building. This shot was taken during a major winter storm in 2007 while I was living at The Other Side Arts.


Proud Aspen

Proud Aspen

This proud aspen tree was captured at an artist retreat at my good friend, artist and colleague, Anna Montgomery’s Home outside of Conifer, Co in 2008. This is one still image from a series of images taken for a time lapse that I did that weekend.

Colorado Tranquility

Colorado Tranquility

This summer, my partner, a friend and I took a weekend camping trip to get away from the city for a few days. As I was working with our friend on using her new camera, we came across this scene near our campsite. The photo was taken in the late afternoon on Boreas Pass in […]


9th Street

9th Street

This piece is inspired by my little brother Josh.  I took this photo last night of 9th Street on Auraria Campus. This street houses many of the campus organizations such as the Metro Alumni Association. I’ve been looking into doing some High Dynamic Range photographs and this is my first go at it.


Riverfront Park

Riverfront Park

The platte river valley in Denver, Co  has become a real focal point of the city’s urban renewal efforts. Riverfront park has become an oasis of urban green lands juxtaposed with stunning city scapes.  The area boasts trendy coffee shops, restaurants, museums and arts groups. It’s access is unmatched with light rail, buses and bike paths centralized between lower downtown and the platte […]
