I created a peace sign out of stone in a Mexican desert in 2009. Going back to see if the offering has been reclaimed or still lives.

Skip Hunt on Display in the Smithsonian!

Through February 2011 in the Smithsonian Castle on the Mall, Washington D.C.

Can' t believe I forgot to remind folks to check out my work in D.C.!

Anyone who may be in Washington D.C. for the holidays or anytime through February 2011 and anywhere near the Smithsonian Castle, they can check out one of my images on display. So if you're in the area, have a look and say, "Hey, I know the dude that made that!" ;-)

Dear Skip,

On behalf of Smithsonian magazine, I am pleased to inform you that you are one of the top ten finalists in the “Americana” category of our 7th annual photo contest. Your photograph of “Flock of birds taking off as… the sun sets” was among more than 60,000 entries we received from all over the world.

New 20/20 Issue #2!

Skip Hunt 20/20 :: South Africa!

Skip Hunt 20/20 + South Africa

I've started something new. Every now and then I'm going to publish a new issue of a magazine/photobook that I'm calling "Skip Hunt 20/20". These are perfect bound, beautifully printed via HP's Indigo presses on great paper stock... 20 pages with 20 photographs only. (20/20) Play on vision and the actual number of pages/photos. :-)

They may be a segment of a journey or they may be a collection from a past trip. Or, they may just be a collection of favorite images I'd like to display together.

These will be ongoing and I will make $2.50 for each one purchased that will go to help fuel and finance my next adventure!

Ok, that's more than I really wanted to go into, but I have to mention one last thing...

Next trip will be about 9 days in Washington Nov. 11-20



Heading out Thursday to the D.C./VA area. Mostly to visit family for about 9 days, but hope to get out a little to explore if there's time. Will be posting D.C./VA specific photos and stuff HERE

Sitting on the Bank of a Stream

Why I am here just being? I am not sure. Every now and then it's a good idea to get out of the stream's current. Not just stop fighting the current, but to get completely out and just watch the water flow by. Sometimes we get lost and forget who and what we really are.

The very best part of this is when the conscious shifts from the sleeping dream to the waking dream in a new place at the break of dawn. For a moment there's a slight confusion as to which side of the dream ocean you're on. :-)

Krause Springs

Just arrived in time to set up my hammock & sway in the last light of the day. Perfect weather.

There's another group here, but so far it seems quiet & peaceful.

Wasn't that long ago I was in this very spot & so many drastic things have evolved in my life. Feels both good & a bit strange to be here this time.


Very First Kaleidoscope Post!

Well, guess I need to go do something amusing so I'll have something to post about. :-)

In the meantime, here's a pretty picture I made.
