By the light of a dying fire.

image

This picture was taken in the dark.  All the lights were out, late at night.  Coals in the fireplace were barely visible, glowing a dim red.  The exposure was 20 seconds long, taken with an infrared camera.  What glows dimly in visible light, is much brighter in the infrared spectrum.  The color of the image is called “false color” sort of an artifact of the of the mixing of the infrared light and the small amounts of visible light the camera can still record.

A Cat Named Sunny

image

Sunny was an old stray with a huge abscess on his back.  After a major surgery, and a radioactive thyroid treatment, he now spends his days moving between the couch and his food bowl. Yet he always seems to have an air of gratitude about him—a sense that he appreciates how much better things are for him now.  Perhaps I’m just anthropomorphizing.

Elopement

I had never photographed an elopement before.  This couple decided to travel all the way from Texas to get married at Multnomah Falls.  It was just the two of them, the officiant and me.  The bride, Ena, did wear a full wedding gown and even went hiking in it after the ceremony.  We tried to make it to the top of the falls, but Ena decided she couldn’t make it with her high heels.  We did get about half way up and photographed the whole trek.  The witnesses for the wedding were myself and the parks person who sold them the permit to get married there.  It had never occurred to Ena and John that they needed a permit, seeing as how it was just the two of them.  I’m sure they could have married without anyone noticing except for the wedding gown and suit.  As soon as the couple put on their nice clothes the ranger was right there to say “you know you can’t get married here without a permit.” What to do but pay the $200 and carry on.
