Recent photographs

I’ve written sparsely about photography, even though I enjoy it, because it doesn’t seem to fall into the realm of the tactile arts as much as I’d like — especially digital photography where you never set foot in a dark room. Dark rooms are part of why photography is fun.

The last couple of weeks I’ve been putting together some of my and my wife’s better photographs for a calendar as a gift for Christmas. I figured these would be worth putting up here. Long-time readers may recognize a one or two of these that I’ve uploaded to Flickr (or may have actually put in previous posts).




grandma-grandson.jpgThese and some others I’ll probably upload soon to my mostly ignored Etsy shop for sale if anyone is interested. What I like about photography is how it forces me to slow down and intentionally observe my surroundings. It’s a good exercise for me as an artist, even though I don’t really consider myself a photographer.

Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.

    I cannot get enough of your and H’s pictures of Siloam. I’m always taken aback when I recognize a location. I’m usually thinking: hmmm, what a pretty town. I wonder where that is…whoa! I LIVE there! You guys capture the best of it.

    I don’t give our little berg enough credit.

    Thanks Shelley; I probably don’t have to say it, but the sake of clarity the fourth photo was NOT taken in Siloam Springs. It was taken in St. Louis last December.

    Yeah, I figured…
