No more photo session services in CO for a while.  Gonna be spending some time in MN...  I'd probably be willing to come back to CO to shoot something like a wedding or other major event, but family portrait services are now ended here.  I'll still be doing plenty of CO landscape work, though, as I'll be taking many little sojourns out here while we're away.
Ryan Fonkert Photography: Colorado session services suspended.

Aww, there's always visitation rights when you've lived in Colorado! ;0)

Thoughts?  It seems like a lot of top pros are skipping the FF and just going either APS-C mirrorless or Medium Format these days.  Granted, it's not a total sea change yet, but it does seem to be heading that way.  The big sticking point to that logic, though, is the A7...

Wow, this is REALLY bad...
This might be the worst Photoshopping we've ever seen... maybe even worse than the floating inspectors from China. Because while usually the Photoshop goof

I saw that and thought, "What are the qualifications for retoucher at Target and who is the QA person for this?" I think I have the skills to be a Target retoucher!! Woo Hoo!

I'm curious what other landscape photogs think.  Anything in your local area that you just can't stand the idea of pointing your camera at anymore, regardless of how beautiful it might be?
Can a place be photographed too much, either by yourself or the photographic community at large?

Double-hopped is the only way to go.

I have a great Lemond TT bike for sale if anyone's interested.  The model year is about 6-7 years, but it's basically brand new, as I never even rode it!  Time to unload this trophy before we move out of state...  Give me a shout if you're interested!
Lemond Rennes TT bike for sale - circa 2007-8, but basically brand new, as it's never seen a ride on the road (other than a test spin around the parking lot)! I picked this up on clearance a few...

I have an entertainment for sale in Manitou Springs, if anyone's interested...

#ForSale  
FOR SALE: Entertainment Center $75 OBO. We bought this on clearance for around $200 (was selling for $300 originally, I believe) at AFW several years back. It's real wood, not the cheap particle board crap like you get at Target or something. As such, it's heavy beast. Wood top and bottom, ...

Cool stuff...
What happens when the concept of graffiti as we know it is flipped on its head? Well, I believe you end up with something like 'Painting with Lights,' a pr

Many of you may have noticed I added you to circles on a different account a couple days ago.  There's not much there yet, but that's where I'll be posting most public content from now on, so follow me over at +Ryan Fonkert .  When G+ rolled out, I simply joined in with my personal account, and it's been a hodge-podge of my personal stuff and more professional work ever since, and I've been looking to clean that up for a while now.  So from now on I'll mostly be using this account just for more personal stuff that I share with my personal friend circles, and all of my public content will be over on my other profile.  I suppose one of these days I should get around to creating a proper business page here, too, but one thing at a time... ;-)

The Camp Robber

This Gray Jay, along with a partner not pictured here, tirelessly stalked our campsite in Horn Fork Basin, hoping to nab any morsel of food we might drop or leave unattended.  Taken June 2012.
