Patrick Love Photography bio picture

Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

“In Yosemite, we see how everyone can inherit the earth. But that gift requires a change of heart, a new intention, a deliberate turning. From now on, we must go forward, back into the world of violence and war, to do our part to end the killing, the suffering, and the ongoing destruction of Mother Earth. Yosemite, along with all of creation, calls us to wake up, stand up, and stop the insane destruction of the earth before it’s too late.”
― John Dear, They Will Inherit the Earth: Making Peace and Practicing Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change

Tatoosh Mountains/Mt. Rainier Hiking

There is a popular reflection pond in the Tatoosh mountains that photographers have been visiting for years.  Personally, I’ve hiked to it many times, but have only been able to shoot pictures twice.  Once, it was still covered in snow (in late July), another time, the clouds were so thick I couldn’t see anything but gray.  This year, was a good year.  BTW, one of my pictures from the Olymplic National Park is published in this months issue of Backpacker Magazine.

Brian, an awesome photographer for Photo Elan also came.  He blogged about it here.

Bessemer, MI – 4th of July and other Oddities ;-)

Anne and I visited her parents in Bessemer, MI for the 4th of July.  They live about 20 minutes from Lake Superior and Black River Harbor.


In Bessemer, they used to shoot the fireworks from right in the field where everyone sits.  The fireworks would explode right above the crowd, and for many years everyone thought that this was best way to do fireworks.  Then one 4th of July, a firework malfunctioned and went into the crowd and exploded, hurting many of the town’s residents.  Now they shoot the fireworks from off the bluff, where is it much safer.


Wally is legendary as the best roofer in the Bessemer, MI area!  He also drives a really cool truck.  In the winter he builds beautiful all-wood canoes.  He said that building canoes keeps him from going crazy.


Hiking around Presque Isle

Minnesota Mel is known in these parts for the elaborate custom building projects he does, and his nearly encyclopedic knowledge of traditional Scandinavian music.  You’ve got to wonder about a man who brings his accordian, and a few warm Schmitts to his current project which is a sauna/outhouse.  That’s right, one building that contains both a composting toilet, and a sauna.  I bet you don’t have one of those.

I wonder what drivers think when they see a stranger holding a large camera directly over where they are about to drive?
