Prairie Wave

A prairie wave near Calhoun just north of Omaha, Nebraska

Prairie Wave, Omaha, Nebraska

A few hours of photography in the heartland, near Omaha, with my brother-in-law reaped many rewards. This is the first black and white I’ve done for a long time but this view was calling for shades of grey.

I’m writing this post as I fly back to the Bay Area and gear up for a busy week. My prairie interlude was wonderful but I’m looking forward to seeing the ocean and you, if you can make it, to Winter Open Studios, at the ICB Building in Sausalito. Here’s more information:

Come see us at Open Studios, Dec. 6th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm and the 7th and 8th, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the ICB building in Sausalito. Drop by and say hi. There will be three floors of artists’ studios. Eileen will be showing some of her photography and she’d love to see you too. Directions below to my studio and Eileen’s.
