Kathleen Grimbly poses in Bellingham Bay at Marine Park on August 15, 2011. Grimbly teaches yoga classes for kayakers utilizing stretches both on land and in the water. She started practicing yoga after suffering from four rear-end collision car accidents. “Yoga became therapeutic, but also a counterbalance in my life,” Grimbly said.
Last week I was on assignment for The Bellingham Herald. Covering daily assignments and the local fair was good change of pace. Here is a portrait I shot of Kathleen Grimbly. She teaches yoga techniques that are useful for kayakers both in and out of the water.
I have been pretty busy working with my designer on getting a new look to the website. Check out the galleries! I’m sure you have noticed some changes, if not you’re blind and have no business looking at a photoblog :)
Recently, I took a trip to my friends property on the Wenatchee river. I took this long exposure just as the sun went down and the stars came out. You don’t get that many opportunities photographing stars in the city so this was a fun challenge. I only got a few chances at this with exposures up to 30 minutes. Man that was a pain hoping that something would come out! Anyone who knows me knows that I have little to no patience so this was a good exercise. Now I know what I can do better next time. Do you have any good star photos? If so leave me a comment!
Here is an image along the Kauai coast. If you like it enough you can buy a print.
This natural wonder in Kauai is one of the easiest to get to with a big reward. It is a short walk over a lava shelf and you find yourself in a naturally occurring pool of water at the shore. The water is crystal clear with some sweet snorkeling.
This image was taken during my time in Cancun at the United Nations Climate Change Conference. The media stunt was put on by 350.org to bring attention to the rising sea levels due to climate change and the conference itself. The photo ended up running in The Wall Street Journal and on the Los Angeles Times Greenspace blog.
