Tabernacle Tragedy

Notice the boy on the right...he moves so quickly the lens couldn't capture him clearly. =)

this is from the parking garage uppermost level. I didn't crop it on purpose. I like the random tower in the image there...

I'm really proud of this one. I love the feel of it.

This would have been so much cooler if the flag had been billowing!

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but every police blockade and tape line was upside down...

I call this "ladder to Heaven"

I wish I hadn't been so cold. I could have gotten cooler pictures of the icicles

No my night pictures are blurry. I was cold, and I forgot to change my ISO...

I like this one, even though it could have been better

It was a totally different site at night

The flames picked up again, and the smoke got higher

I would frame this and hang it on my wall...

I think this is the exact same picture as the last one. I just want you to fully appreciate it

My night ones are pretty messed up. Oh well, you live and learn

My first epic HDR! Some of the are HDR, but this one is my amazingly epic one. It's an artistic choice, It's not meant to look realistic

This one is also at the top, but it's an HDR. My first ever HDR.

Not an HDR, just a cool picture

I hope these people don't mind me showing off their backs to the world. 
I didn't take the pictures to document, I took them mostly for my own benefit. I took them as practice, and because I thought "Hey, Why not take pictures of this once in a life time event?" I showed up and guess who else was there? REESE! That was awesome, he taught me a lot of neat tricks, like HDR. Now I have a new trick to play around with.

Comment and critique, don't you dare just say "nice pictures" because that's not a (good) comment or a critique.

Washed Away

Washed away
and pushed downstream
So many thoughts and feelings
gone forever...

Caught in a net
of loss and pain
Tangled hearts and hands
grasping for each other...

The Edge

Standing on the
Watching the world
Silver mixed with red and
Absorbed into the nothingness of
