Kawah Ijen Night Miners

In Further Lost, International People by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

You’ve always wanted to do a four a.m. hike down a mountain in the dark ending at an acid sulphur lake right? Have I got just the place for you. I included Mount Ijen on my shot list for a one week trip around Java. The reason to go so early is to reach the bottom of the crater before sunrise and see the blue fires of ignited gas emitting from the vents of the volcano.

Old World Cassette Shop

In cultural photography, Further Lost, International People, street photography, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Sometimes you turn a corner and do a double take. Am I really seeing this? Yep, that is a shop filled with nothing but cassette tapes. The thing that is both beautiful and frustrating about traveling in Morocco is that the country is stuck in an ancient time and happy to remain so. We stop in Fes for a rest …

Mary’s Tomb in Jerusalem

In cultural photography, Further Lost, landmarks, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

The view from the bottom of the stairs at Mary’s Tomb; better known as Tomb of the Virgin, in Jerusalem is kinda creepy and a little interesting. I had entered that door at the top of the stairs maybe five minutes prior, and was promptly turned away when I got to this point. You see, I hadn’t checked the times …

Haunted Hotel

This haunted hotel is Hosteria La Cienega in Cotapaxi Ecuador. I have lots of photos of the interior of this place. It’s well preserved, the dining area is beautiful, the hotel is great for weddings. Yada yada; you can hear about all that on hundreds of travel websites. It’s true the staff is very polite and superbly dressed. The rooms …

Devil’s Water Painting

In Artistic Photography, Black and White, Further Lost, Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Water painting in the swamps. Well that’s what it looked like to me anyway. I’ve been working through some old images, and applying creative editing when looking at them because frankly sometimes the image just wasn’t that interesting to begin with. Learning which photos are worth spending time on is a learning curve that I’m still working on. My post …

Northern Colorado Landscape Dotted by Oil Derricks

In Artistic Photography, Further Lost, Landscape, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

An oil derrick is a common sight in the fields of Northern Colorado. I thought I’d give these nodding donkeys an apocalyptic feel just for fun. I don’t know how long I’ll live here so I’m capturing interesting scenes while I can. I know my photo publishing is all over the place. I’m working on organizing my library to pull …

Cupid’s Span – An Unbroken Memory

In Further Lost, landmarks, Worldwide Butter by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

Cupid’s Span is an art installation just south of Embarcadero along the San Francisco Bay. I went out this night intending to take pictures of the Bay Bridge and I didn’t even know this giant bow art installation was there. I’m sure locals and frequent visitors to San Francisco know this place already but it was new to me. This was actually the …

McWay Falls Trail at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park

In Further Lost, Lost In Nature by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

The McWay Falls  Trail in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park along Pacific Coast Highway 1 is pretty short but still difficult to navigate in the dark, and in the fog. I went late one evening hoping to get some sunset photos. Clouds rolled in and the fog was too thick to see anything. So I came back after dark because …

Pandora’s Box Metal Sculpture

In Artistic Photography, Further Lost by Kevin WenningLeave a Comment

This Pandora’s Box sculpture is at Porter Sculpture Garden just outside Sioux Falls South Dakota. The sculpture garden is created by Ron Porter. He turned common scrap metal into art sculptures. Most of the art sculptures tend towards the bizarre like this one. Well it didn’t feel right to do something less than unusual with this image. This is not …
