Photographer/activist David Gonzales plays with his Border Collie below the Tetons in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Two of my photos left our solar system today and are now in interstellar space aboard Voyager. Two shots out of the 100 chosen to represent life on Earth. The only “message in a bottle” from our planet. I shot this picture of a father and his daughter in Malaysia while on assignment for NatGeo in 1976 and with my whole family in tow. The shot has been flying high for 35 years. Destination unknown!
Back Bay Wildlife Refuge, Va. Beach Va….my mother sort of “made me” go see what was up at this wildlife refuge…Not my thing really, but when your mother makes a suggestion and leans a bit , well you just do it!! Walked right in to this. This was also a double spread in NatGeo for an article on Virginia where I lived at the time. Thanks Mom. That picture went a whole lot further than we thought….
NatGeo picture editor at the Image Collection, Ashley Morton stretches by the fire pit in my back yard.
Ashley assisted me many years ago in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico before aiming for NatGeo. We have remained friends for at least ten years. Together with my long time amigo Lance Rosenfield, Prime Collective coop, who I also met in San Miguel, we have enjoyed the long weekend last days of summer.
