I’ve gotten pretty behind in adding photos to http://www.jlgould.com. I’ve been working on adding at least all the photographs that I usually have at shows. I havent added them all yet, but what I have added is in the “New” folder.
This Saturday, October 4, I’ll be taking part in the Fall Fest Art & Craft Show at the Maryland Yacht Club, 1500 Fairview Beach Road, Pasadena, MD 21122. The show starts at 10 am and runs until 3 pm. This is my first time at this event, so I’m not familiar with the other artists taking part, but I’ll have a lot of new work, the new bookmarks and samples of the three 2015 calendars available to order. So if you’re in the area, come say hello!
Summer is departing, which means I’m ordering new merchandise for shows and making plans for fall photography.
I’m loving the calendars and bookmarks I’ve designed for this season.
The bookmarks come in 4 designs, each with two images:
I’ve ordered three kinds of calendars. The first is an 8×8 desktop Calendar with recent photos from my travels around the US.
The same images were used for the 11×17 calendar, which looks like:
And as a third calendar option, I have a 2015 11×17 Delmarva Days Calendar featuring work from the Delmarva area.
If you’re interested in ordering a bookmark or calendar, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bookmarks are $3.99. Desktop Calendars are $21.95. 11×17 Calendars are $29.95.
Each area of Yellowstone National Park is so disparate from the other that I often feel like I’ve been teleporting between different lands. Traveling from the Mammoth area to Lamar Valley takes me through an ever changing landscape. By the time I’m in Lamar Valley, I feel like I’ve entered the Land Of The Lost, but instead of dinosaurs, there’s bison, antelope, deer, bear, coyote, wolves, badgers and dozens of other animals.
I suppose for those not so prone to fancy, its not quite Land of The Lost, but I can imagine its still a bit like going back in time. There’s little in the way of man-made structures to spoil the landscape. Wild animals carry about giving minimal notice to our small presence. The sky and land open up until our presence as mere dots on the landscape becomes apparent…even more so when we leave our cars behind and hike even a small ways into the landscape.
Its not a thing I feel I can adequately capture in photos, but perhaps you might get a small sense of the place in what I have captured.
Remaining in Delaware, but turning my attention from big landscapes, vibrant sunsets and the big picture to the little things- the creatures you meet with your belly on the ground, the birds found when looking up and everything else waiting for someone to take a closer look.
So, an appreciation of little things:
I’d originally planned this post to be a small interruption from sharing the photographs from my recent Yellowstone trip by sharing a selection of old and new images from the Delmarva area. It didn’t take me long to realize that including all those images in one post would be too big a task. I’d forgotten about several folders of photographs I’d meant to share before now. Oops.
So, here is part one: Lewes, Delaware
I can’t imagine ever getting tired of the scenery around Yellowstone and the Tetons. Every time the light changes, its like an entirely new world.
I yearn to explore all the roads and trails. I dream of spending months at a time there, photographing every nook and cranny, venturing into each town and discovering more of what that world has to offer.
One of these days…
