Which Bear?

Since my recent addition of bookmarks to my merchandise was so successful, I decided design a few more.  The fox one was easy enough, as my sister had already told me…repeatedly…which was her favorite.  ;)

I wanted to design a black bear bookmark as well, but I’ve been having trouble narrowing down my choices.  Then I realized that some of the images I was trying to choose from had never been shared (oops).

I decided to share them now and get YOUR input on which you’d like to see on a bookmark.

Pick one. The image for the opposite side has already been chosen.

One person who participates on the blog or on Facebook will be chosen at random to receive a free bookmark. :)

There’s a story going around with a misleading title. It says a hiker “discovers” an abandoned town in the Smoky Mountains and photographs it. That’s like saying he discovered the visitor’s center or the park itself. The abandoned town (actually a club) is well known. A section of it can be driven through by the Elkmont Campground in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The rest of it can very easily be hiked/walked through.

Its a very cool area to explore and I did so myself (most recently last year). Check it out yourself the next time you’re in the area. Be respectful of the area so that others can explore it as well and keep in mind that the park would rather you didn’t enter the structures- both for your safety and the safety of the buildings.

Olympic Sunrise

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.

Show this weekend

TheMagpieAndTheElkweb

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!

New Merch

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:

BMBear

Lamar Valley

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.
