Frontier Implosion, Las Vegas!

Damn I love exploding buildings! The historic Frontier Hotel imploded at 2:30AM on November 13th. We scored an amazing view of the spectacle after bluffing our way into a “Press Only” parking garage across the street… Check out Jimmy’s YouTube video of us on the scene!

Las Vegas Wedding!

On September 29, 2007, I participated in a circus-themed extravaganza love-fest of a wedding, and married my love Jim Slonina.

Last Days in Wyoming…

This shot is from a visit to the nearest town of story, WY, which consists of a few streets of log cabin buildings surrounded by a pine forest. At the general store in town is a big chalkboard so residents can leave messages for each other. Again, I had to get used to small town […]

Medicine Wheel, WY

Before leaving Wyoming, some of the artists and I made a trek into the Big Horn Mountains to reach the sacred site of Medicine Wheel, a human-made circle of rocks dating back 2000 years, placed on the clearing of a mountain peak, with a beautiful 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains. It is a […]
