I’ve recently been spending time on my photojournalist blog, and a lot of my photos are ending up over there. I’ve done a fair amount of photo work and it sometimes ends up there as well, but as you might be able to tell from the name, From My ‘Art is where my heart is, even if it’s not where I always put my photos.
Here are a few from a recent fall hike. We had a great day and the vine maples were painted in warm colors against mossy forest floors and azure blue skies. That doesn’t happen a lot here because the fall clouds and rain serve to moderate the temps, and the cold nights are what cause leaf colors to pop. Anyway, here is a quick look at the Talapus Lake trail on October 4.

Waterfall enroute to the lake. I didn’t expect waterfalls, so I had fun hand-holding these.

This unsolicited email came to me today from someone I don’t know at all. It was exactly what I needed.
Dear AC and Erika
Read “Song of Chomolungma” last night and want to praise AC for being smart enough to talk Erika into going on and documenting the 2011 Everest Highway journey trip and Erika for doing such wonderful work on the book’s text and photography. The book is beautifully crafted showing the soaring physical wonders of the Himalayas and the beautiful people who live there. Erika is especially able to look into people’s eyes and hearts and understand some of their strengths and weaknesses and make this understanding accessible to those who were not there.
I am due to post photos on this site. It is after all a photo site. Really, I take photos sometimes! And I even get them put on this site occasionally, too. Stay tuned. It’s coming.
The word has gone out. I have let a bunch of people know that my book is ready. (And that’s the scariest thing I have done this week.) So this website is being over run by the book, book, book at the moment. No worries, my old photo galleries are still up there under the “Gallery” page. I’ll put in new ones, including some from Nepal after the chaos of the book calms down. Thanks for stopping by!
I redid the website 2 days ago. I have been futzing with it. It might be ready – poke around and see. Let me know if it’s broken anywhere. In the mean time, check out the info on my book!
Just a note that a few things have moved. My HimalSong blog is now on the left of this page, as well as in its home on Blogspot. Almost everything else has its own button or pretty picture to click on. Spend a minute, it will make more sense the longer you’re here!
Things are looking a bit more beautiful (or at least dusted off) around here. Word Press is my new buddy, and this is website number 4 that I have dipped in the lovely interface in the past year. So now we look all pretty with only of one day of gritting teeth, cussing and making creative minds hiss under the duress of coding (very light coding). And here it is.
Be patient while we get the goodies back in place, OK? Thanks for stopping by!
