“Clean lines, compelling color palettes, refined sense of balance, and the greatest subject matter on earth.” Thoughts like these run through my mind as I work my way through Audrey Dodgen’s portfolio. An editorial and commercial photographer who calls Oklahoma her home, Dodgen describes a gravitational pull that seems to draw her back to our…
“Every Point on the Map” will be a ten year journey to visit each one of Oklahoma’s 593 townships or cities and have a meaningful conversation with one person in each place.
11. There will come a day when she asks for a puppy. Don’t over think it. At least one time in her life, just say, “Yes.”
Thank you to Mark Rusling, Melissa Davis and Preston Power of the Tulsa Digital Photography Group, for sharing their work this morning. Our thoughts go out to all victims, survivors, families and friends of those affected by the vast number of cancers in the world. May your Race bring you the Cure you are seeking. All the best ~ The Red Dirt Chronicles Writing Team
Our photographer this week is not new to the Red Dirt Chronicles. When the site rolled out in August of last year, she put together a collection we featured in our header section for several months. She’s also served as a photographer for a few of our essays, and put this self-portrait together as a…
Quote from her website: “I run over a chicken coming home and killed it dead and I am afraid to go back to Hugo” this was my favorite letter of the bunch!
Today I’m providing a photo or two from one of my gardener friends, Alice Woodrome. I’m also sharing a poem written by a family friend, Marvellena Scott, for her husband, Kermit. Both of these guest contributors clearly have the wisdom and beauty of more years of life and love behind them than I.
That’s the beauty of Oklahoma. Talented people, willing to share the love. That’s how we found our photographer for this week. George Thomas is a resident of Stillwater and was referred to us by Michael Stano, our featured artist last week.
When highlighting Oklahomans for our Silent Sunday series, I’m always amazed at the variety of backgrounds covered by those who are also excellent photographers. Such is the case with Judge Michael Stano, or…Michael Stano the photographer, of Stillwater. I like signing into his “Zenfolio” website just to hear the relaxing threads of music accompanying me…
Twilight Saturday night outside Hideaway Pizza in Edmond, and families are still out on the sidewalk talking while children are playing. Evening temperatures are pleasant enough for waiting or eating outdoors.
Next month is Alcohol Awareness Month. We’re publishing this series now in order to provide a short moment of time to think about whether or not you or someone you know could take advantage of the multiple free screenings or help and resources that will be available beginning April 1st.
Although James’ repertoire is extensive, I’m just publishing a few shots from on particular section of his Flickr account with his permission today. Thanks, James, for traveling around and bringing the images to us.
When she died on 2004, I picked up the camera again and determined that I would be the eye for both of us. I believe that taking pictures can help anyone develop an ability for capturing details that others may not necessarily see, bringing into view a new perspective of the subject portrayed.
I realized, however, that with the emerging of the refrigerator door and sides of the appliance (they’re nearly clean now) came the decorating of the walls in my home. Both my girls are artists.
Zach Gray is a really special asset to Oklahoma. From Ada, he currently resides at Stillwater. If you’d like to see photos of the Bedlam game that have a great perspective (as good or better than some of the major sports outlets), visit his Flickr site by clicking this photo.
The great old bridges of Oklahoma display a lot of different designs but they are being replaced. Enjoy these pictures, but be grateful you won’t have to drive across them anymore.
Thank you to Jeanie Eaton and her Rural Expressions concept by Onetulsa.com for selecting some of her work to share with us this morning. Her venues consist of, Lazy E Arena, Feather Creek Farm, Tulsa Expo , Claremore Expo and various Breeding Farms across the state.
As I leaned against the back wall waiting for chapel to be over so I could take my daughter to the dentist, I asked someone his name.
“There are two things you need to know about me. I enjoy life and I believe in creating images that make you feel something.”
Because quite a few of our contributors live in central Oklahoma, we want to make sure and let Tulsa know they are in our hearts as well.
