An absolutely phenomenal album.
 
It's DAY TWO of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a photography scavenger hunt.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*RISK*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*RISK*" album,
1 item seen in 233 different ways.

Its been a while since I have thrown anything up on this site.  I've worked like a dog for the last four months... but now that session is over, I've hit the road.  Here are a few outtakes from a 17 hour drive... Denver back ...

Friends will know that I have not been much on G+ in the last months.  I have been part of a different life rhythm - which includes today, the news that my father, Stephen Edgington Jordan has passed away.  (it was not unexpected)  I was able to share rich time with him this December and will be returning to Oregon for this week in memorial.

My Father put my first camera in my hands.  His.  A German Exacta.  My first "Assignment" - age 12.  Family vacation.  We swept over a mountain pass,  I saw the Tetons for the first time.  I could hardly hold in my astonishment.  "Praise God Praise God I cried, even as I ran a clicked.  Though I tried not to shake, cause it was Kodachome 25!

I am currently working on a poem, but my father fanned in me a great love of music, art, adventure ,and the natural world.  Thanks Dad, for your rich legacy in my life.

Introduction
Kirk Jordan is a photographer for the state of Arkansas (USA).

I particularly like to take pictures of natural things in less conventional ways, and  I try to press beyond pure naturalism, to suggest the blending of the material and spiritual worlds. 

I also write poems.

My goal in life is to see God.




Bragging rights
Once tried to dry out a camera that had fallen in lake by placing it in a Microwave. After the huge lightning-bolt zapped my camera it really did not work.

They always give Rocky, our Bearded Collie great treatment. He winters as a long haired dog, then emerges in the Spring with a cut coat, then in the summer with a shave. Always looks great, comes away happy.
