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.

Art District Friday Night

August 4th was an expanded 1st Friday in Denver’s Sante Fe Art District. The street was closed and
lined with food trucks and entertainers. After checking in at The Gallery at Studio J and re-viewing our Cuba Exhibit (it is there thru the end of August), I wandered, camera in hand, looking for people and things of interest. What caught me tonight were the musicians and their instruments.

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 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.

A Night in Denver

A Night in Denver

It is always fun to go poke around Denver looking for new shots and recapturing previous locations. On this night, a visit to Union Station and it’s summertime fountains made for some interesting people watching and fun with lighting. Inside the always interesting panoramic was there to be taken.

I finally visited City Park at the right time to catch the iconic view of the Pavilion against the sun setting over the mountains. Classic Denver.

Rainbow Falls

Rainbow Falls

Tucked beneath Rte 24 outside of Manitou Springs, Co is, what some consider, an amazing public art site. Others consider it a graffiti painted desecration of what some call a sacred Native American site. Whatever you choose to call it or how you choose to see it, Rainbow Falls will grab your attention.

Chicago Lakefront

Along the Lakefront

While in Chicago recently I had a bit of time to kill on a beautiful afternoon before catching a flight out of Midway. So I headed down to the Museum Campus off of Lakeshore Drive (<–music!) in downtown Chicago. The views never disappoint. Except for a random group of Segway users who thought the area blonde to them alone, I was able to grab a few interesting images.

Denver Chalk Art Festival 2014

 Larimer Square in downtown Denver was packed this weekend for The Chalk Art Festival. What amazed me most, outside of the insanely large – but courteous crowds – was how so many of the images 3D nature I did not see until looking through the captures. Here are some of my favorites.
