The Approach
Buenos Aires, AR

While walking around in Argentina the other day, I stumbled into a beautiful church.  From the outside of the building I had no idea the inside was going to be this extravagant.  I'm so glad I stepped through the doorway!  Remember, when doors open in life, always see where they lead as you may be surprised.

A Snapshot Of Time
Twin Bridges, CA, US

While walking around the other day, I came across a for-sale, boarded-up  storefront with a metal grating over the window.  Looking inside I surprised to see a couple of old cars hanging out inside.  I have to wonder: are the old cars being sold with the building??

The Fun Always Ends
Stinson Beach, CA, US

I have to give this guy props; it was not a short walk back from this beach.  At least half a mile, uphill and carrying two surf boards.

Came back home from a week long away mission to find that a mocking bird now has some cute little fledglings in her nest now.

I love the first sunflower showings of every year.  It makes for a perfect time to take a drive through the countryside, don't ya think?

Emergence

I just had two iris pictures arrive on my doorstep yesterday, framed and beautiful so I thought I'd celebrate how awesome they look by posting another iris picture.

Light Spelling
San Francisco, CA, US

This gentleman was spelling out a combination of words and the java programming language to write a message that would later be shown during a marriage proposal to his girlfriend.  It was a very unique project, and a wonderful setting in San Francisco to carry it out.  I'm sure she had to be impressed.  And I hope she was able to read Java :-)

Story
Tagline
A photographer trapped in the body of a computer scientist. With a LOT of hobbies (amateur (ham) radio (WS6Z), geocaching, programming, and typing things in parentheses)
Introduction
Hi.  My name is Wes Hardaker, and I'm addicted to light.

I'm the owner and photographer of Captured On Earth Photography.  I'm happiest and most content when wandering the planet taking pictures of everything that my path crosses, and my photographic work reflects this: I shoot everything that moves.  And doesn't.  Feel free to browse my Google+ post history, or visit my galleries on Captured On Earth (including my most recent pictures) to see the pictures I've taken.  I generally post one a day to G+, so if you like my work please circle me and enjoy my work!

I've also been heavily involved with open source software for ages and will continue to be for ages in the future.  I spent much of desk-job time working on and promoting secured internet standards. I only wish I had endless time to accomplish all the good things I want to do that I can't find anyone to pay me to implement.

My public posts are generally photography related.  If you're interested in any of my other hobbies (ham radio, geocaching and general geekiness), please let me know so I can put you in a circle that will let you see see my posts about those topics.
