The piano on Larimer Street

An early morning encounter

There is a very colorful piano on the sidewalk, on the corner of Larimer and 15th. I just saw it this morning. I have no idea what it is doing there, other than be the unusual encounter that attracts your eye, or even makes you stop and play some tunes.

Flamenco night

The grand finale

Very nice show at Mercury Cafe last night. A couple more here.

Australian Critters

Big hug

Of course no trip to Australia is complete without an encounter with a kangaroo and a koala. For lack of time, my own encounter was in an enclosed environment at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane. See all of those and more here.

The Great Barrier Reef

Last Saturday I took a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Unfortunately, beginner divers, such as myself, were not allowed to carry cameras underwater. Anyhow, it was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Let's hope it stays that way.

Sunday I went for a short trip to the Green Island. Some more images are here.

Cairns, Australia

Low tide marshlands.

I was up at 4 am, strolling by what was the seaside last night. Some early risers were out for breakfast already.

37,000 ft over the Pacific

The sun rises over the Pacific Ocean.

The 15 hour trip was not too bad, except from the occasional speed bumps. Those who know me and my motion sickness know what I mean.

Larimer street-painting festival

Last weekend was the annual Larimer Street, street-painting festival. It was cool to see the tarmac being transformed into a painting, even for just a couple days.

Some more images are here.

I bumped into a group doing some pretty neat tricks on slacklines in City Park this afternoon and I was glad to have a camera with me.

Elinchom Skyport Universal Trigger Set (transmitter on camera hotshoe and receiver plugged to Paramount cord).
Stand with white translucent umbrella.

Here is what it looks like so far:

And a still composition "Man and Woman" (full size image here).

Oh my, what have I done??

It's often the case that after snapping away on my camera around Denver, I will get a close look at the images weeks after and get this "hey, what is this?" type of feeling. Typical case, the image below. It's not a ghost walking the streets of Denver, it's just Fanni with a commuter rail on the background. 

More photos from that walk on a cold Denver afternoon are here.

Bosque del Apache

A couple weeks ago I took a trip trip to Bosque del Apache ("woods of the Apache") national wildlife refuge near Socorro, New Mexico.  Its lakes are the wintering grounds of thousands of birds, mostly ducks, snow geese and sandhill cranes. 

The sight and sound of the birds flying in in the evening to spend the night at the lakes is spectacular.  In the morning, slightly after sunrise, all the snow geese gathered at one side of the lake from where they all took off as one huge flock. 

A selection of more photographs from that trip is on flickr
