I was intrigued by the abstract pattern and stark palette of these ice structures I saw on a hike up Mount Ellinor. I did some experimenting with converting the photos to black and white, but the slight hint of color in the ice and dirt (mud?) adds some drama to the photos.

Finally finishing the piano stool I started several months ago (and documented in this KAPOW), this week’s KAPOW is the seat portion of the stool. The seat of the stool also uses the repurposed wood (oak) from the original banker’s chair (see photo below). I cut the seat into a circle, doubled up it’s thickness, and retained the seat contour. The stool is adjustable with a threaded mechanism. It works pretty well as a piano stool and has much more style than the IKEA stool I was using at the piano before.

This week´s KAPOW brings us a quick digital sketch of an interesting pattern I saw in a log cut a few weeks ago. My goal was to keep the drawing simple—and somewhat abstract—to emphasize the pattern. I like how it came out, yet I am not sure this is the final version of this…..

Below is the log cut that provided the inspiration.

This week I rented a telephoto zoom lens (Fuji 100-400) and took a bunch of wildlife shots. Here is a collection of nine that I really like. There are lots of herons!

Photo of hikers headed through a barren lava landscape toward the glaciers on Mount Adams. When taking the photo I was disappointed that the (previously) clear sky had become cloudy…..looking at the outcome of the photo, I think the clouds add drama to the scene.
