    Anza-Borrego Desert, Selected Images Show

    Howdy Everyone,

    From October 15th through December 14th, I'll be showing a small selection of images from my Anza-Borrego portfolio at Carol's Hungry Mind Cafe in Middlebury, Vermont (http://www.carolshungrymindcafe.com/). The nine images on display feature examples of my large format film and digital work from California's largest state park. If you're in the area, please stop in and have a look. Tell your friends, tell your friends' friends.

    An online gallery of the show, as well as additional images from the portfolio-in-progress, is available at:
    http://www.brettsimison.com/gallery/anza-borrego/1/

    Information about the show itself available here:

    Thanks -- hope to see you there.

    -Brett

    Nice images, Brett, and good luck with the show. Love that water heater.

    Interestingly, I was expecting landscapes, yet there were so few images of the Anza Borrego Desert itself. I do go there often, as one may see on my site.

    Thanks, Jeffrey. I'll return the compliment -- you've got some great images on your site, too.

    Was the relative scarcity of landscapes a pleasant surprise?

    At first I was disappointed, because that was the expectation I had (always dangerous!). But, moments later, your imaging gave me a fresh view of new types of interest to be found there I had not explored. I'd say Mission Accomplished.

    Interesting work. Just curious, as a project that desert is a loooong way from home. Why that project?
    Thanks,

    Thanks very much, Jeffrey.

    You're right. It's a long haul from Vermont, but I've got family who have a cabin in Anza-Borrego, so the trips are dual-purpose: I get to hang out and drink beer with my relatives AND have access to an incredible photo subject.

    There's also the additional benefit of having a warm place to escape to during the long Vermont winters.
