Tranquility in Amishville

August 09, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Peaceful rural landscape.

I don't know if I have yet to develop "a look". It is a goal. To have someone look at an image and say... "That's a Dave Arment". Maybe. Someday.

If I were to pick a recent picture and say that's my look. This would be it.

Maybe I'm dreaming.

I'll just keep trying and what happens... happens.

The Bubble Blower

August 07, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Sometimes I'm asked how long I've been taking pictures. This image is a scan of a slide from 1972 (or 3). It is a Bible School in West Virginia where I helped for a summer. 

We were occupying time (and having fun) by putting dish soap in paper cups and having the kids blow bubbles. Most of the kids understood and had great fun. A couple were too young and their only experiences with straws were where you inhaled. So they had soap bubbles coming out of their mouths and these sour looks on their faces... case in point below; although he has a nice bunch of bubbles in his cup.

It's funny how my memory has faded over the years, but I still remember this little guy and the bubbles coming out of his mouth.

Together. Togetherness. Family.

Lake Michigan Late Afternoon with Smoky Skies

August 01, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

I have not posted to the blog for a while because 1) we have been away to Michigan for several days 2) my travel computer is old and finally "gave up the ghost". I hope to order a new travel computer soon. Money is awalays an issue as well as knowing what to buy.

This is a picture from out trip. The sunset on this particular day never happened. There is smoke in the upper atmosphere from forest fires in the west. This is how the sun looked late afternoon. As it got closer the the horizon it simply disappeared.

Strange skies in recent days.

Lake Michigan late afternoon.

The sun is odd because there are fires in the Western United States that are putting smoke in the air at the time of this "capture".
