Proving once again that it’s wise to keep a camera close at hand, this lovely dragonfly appeared next to me as I was enjoying an outdoor lunch. Serendipity for sure. I learned later that this beautiful creature also has so much symbolism attached to it. I suppose that comes with the territory of being so visually striking. This link has some interesting information about the  meaning and symbolism of the dragonfly http://www.dragonfly-site.com/meaning-symbolize.html

A compelling sight.  A dragonfly seen in Sedona, AZ, its colors matching the beautiful red rock of the area.

Meet the Gift Shop

March 5, 2013

Of course, the rest of the zoo is the real star http://www.bronxzoo.com, but what a great gift shop!  Didn’t see any actual beetles (or Beatles) though.

All of them are barefoot.  Surely a hidden message!

While not on assignment photographing executive portraits or otherwise creating imagery for corporate communications, public relations, and business marketing, other equally interesting visual moments pass before me. Like this adorable little tough guy just sitting there on a park bench. We engaged in a little face-off, after which I complimented him on his stylish coat. And off we both went onto the activities we were headed to–he, a little exercise and meet-up with some pals at the dog park, me, a corporate photography assignment filled with lots of faces, thankfully none of which were quite so intense!
