Happy Friday! I hope everyone who celebrated the Fourth is doing well and that your fireworks were free of those tricky fast fuses.
Here's a photo of an old fire truck that I took just about a month ago in Shaniko, Oregon, on a trip out east with Gigi Peek (of Gigi Peek Photography--go check her out). If anyone happens to know the make, model, and year of this thing, I'd love to hear it in the comments.
Anyway, this was a really challenging location to shoot, even in the middle of the night, because of the low-pressure sodium vapor streetlights. They seriously try to light the downtown area to daylight in Shaniko. I did my best to hide the most potent streetlight behind the truck itself, but then it took a lot of work in post-processing to calm everything down to its current state from a color that I would best describe as "radioactive urine."
These next few weeks are going to be pretty exciting. A few of my previously unpublished photos will be appearing in a publication due out in a few weeks (more on that later), I'm still working on my limited-edition aluminum prints of Delicate Arch (for those of you who have inquired about that), my first summer photography workshop is next week, and I have some great photo shoots scheduled for the next month or so, including an exciting trip to The Enchantments in a few weeks.
So how's your summer going? Are you wringing every bit of warm, fun, summery goodness from it? Until next time, amigos!+AstroFriday
