Banksy spent October 2013 dazzling and mystifying New York City art lovers with some fabulous art work both on the street and on trucks. His Better Out than In NYC residency was a great concept. The Sirens of the Lambs, Shoe Shine Boy with a pompous looking Ronald McDonald and the Waterfall Truck seemed like masterpieces running through a city full of sterile galleries with derivative work desperate to make rent for another month of sustenance. The art scene in New York City is as contrived as a classic painting these days so we need the likes of Banksy to give it a shot in the arm. Lets look at a few of the pieces Banksy exposed us to.
Banksy’s last piece lasted only a couple of hours before being vandalised by some people so I couldn’t get any pictures of those but the balloons are now in a Police evidence locker somewhere… maybe they will donate them to MOMA at some point.
This is #30 and so my favorite piece.

My love of animals surpasses pretty much all other beings is known to many. Since I am an empath, I can feel and communicate with animals at a level more intimate than most people. So, meeting the hundreds of animal at the AKC Meet the Breeds show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City is quite a treat. I interacted and found information on many dog and cat breed. I petted and played with a number of great puppies, dogs, cats and kittens. So check out the pictures and let me know what you think!
Winterset, Iowa is a beautiful little town and area to visit. There are rolling hills, farm smells, no fast food in sight and friendly people who dont bother you. Photographing the bridges in the area is a lot of fun. You have to get off road on to gravel roads.
Check out what i found…
Rocky Mountain National Park is a chunk of paradise outside of Estes Park, Colorado and about 2 hours from Denver, CO. The drive up the winding roads to Estes Park is no laughing matter! I drive it late one night on a long road trip and it was quite a thrill and also a little scary. You got sheer drops on the side of the road and the road is pitch black at night. Once up in Estes Park, you feel like you have arrived in a photographers’ paradise! The hotels are cosy. There is a bit of mist in the air. The air is so clean you can feel it pulling impurities out of your tired city choked lungs. The mornings in Estes Park are so crisp and clear (on clear days) that you may as well start praying to your brand of deity in humiliation and wonder. Thats why I say I photograph with humility and reverence.
There are lakes, trees, vistas, birds, bears and flora to photograph for years!
Anyhow… check out some of my photographs from Rocky Mountain National Park…
