Crush – Denver

Saturday night was another meetup with the Denver Nightcrawlers to experience and shoot the Crush  experience in RiNo. The mission of Crush, as stated on their FB page is:

“CRUSH celebrates art, urban beautification, creativity, and culture by enriching the community through an arts festival like no other. Centered on empowering artists’ creativity, CRUSH is committed to reflecting and diversifying the urban landscape and the unique voice of the community.”

What amazes me is the scale and free form used by these artists for their murals. Take a look at some of what I saw that night.

Sloan’s Lake and I25 Light Trails

Another fun night with the Denver Night Photo Walk Community, aka the Denver Nightcrawlers. We started out at Sloan’s Lake Park hoping for a nice sunset with the skyline in the distance and maybe a reflection or two. Then a little playing with glow-sticks and steel wool for interesting light effects. While the majority headed off to photograph the nearby neighborhood and a few libations, a couple of us headed north to try for some light trails into Denver. Oh, and throw in one from a rain out at Coors Field, Cubs in town!

Alexander Calder Exhibit & Denver Botanic Gardens

During Doors Open Denver 2017 vintage, I visited the new Alexander Calder exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Calder is known as one of the most influential American sculptors of the 20th century and a number of his works are on loan to the Gardens for this exhibit.

Denver Nightcrawlers February 2017

The Denver Photo Night Walk Community took to the streets this past Saturday in a loop around DAM to the Capitol, down Broadway and up the alley before Lincoln.  Lots of new faces and more Sony shooters!

If you haven’t noticed, within a given post you may see multiple versions and or treatments of the same scene. In some cases, I am experimenting with different processing techniques. Others, the same image but at different times. As an example, the Carr building below was done with traffic passing during a long exposure and without the traffic.

Denver Walkabout

Went looking for a different sunrise view with a couple of other photogs this am, and zip. The ramp we were going to shoot from that overlooked Coors Field is apparently reversed for morning traffic. So we got a little Union Station, Coors Field entrance, a train or two.

Denver Nightcrawlers

Denver Nightcrawlers January Photowalk

First night with a diverse bunch of photographers shooting a wide variety of equipment. One had an old Minolta 101T shooting 35mm film. How cool is that! We met outside the Mayan Theater on Broadway in Denver and wandered south, shooting whatever struck our fancy. Ended up shooting with a new friend, Patricia and all in all, it was a great night. Being new to street photography, I’m still figuring out how I like the feel of the processed image, so you will see multiples of the same image, treated differently.

Beaver Moon Over Denver

Beaver Moon

The super moon that occurred mid November, 2016 is often referred to as the Beaver Moon. According to the Farmers Almanac:

 This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.

This is the closest the moon has come to earth in over 70 years, according to NASA and won’t happen again until 2034. We took advantage of fairly clear skies to shoot it both from Red Rocks Amphitheater and a couple locations near downtown Denver.

Colorado Sunflowers

Sunflower Season in Colorado

When August rolls around here in Colorado we know it is time for sunflowers! While most of the fields are on private land (no trespassing) there are plenty of beautiful views from the roads. Many of the wilder fields are filled with smaller blooms, but if you scout around, you can find good shooting space from the shoulder or pull-offs nearby.

Denver Skyline

Denver Skyline

The clouds were settling in over the city as set up to shoot from this iconic location. On top of that, the winds were strong enough to ruin quite a few images. But, overall I like this view.
