I had a great time enjoying the Ghostly Circus performance at Laurel Hill Cemetery this past weekend. I regret not snapping more, but I did capture a few beautiful moments from the show.

How scientists colorize photos of space

I rarely share content that is not my own, however I felt most people who enjoy photography would appreciate this quick breakdown of how astrophotography images are created.

Bangarang Family Camp Out - tanksleyphoto

Bangarang is a family of like-minded individuals who collaborate on artistic endeavors. The Bangarang Camp Out is meant to celebrate all the artists, makers, producers, and organizers in our community. From logistics and planning, to hot studio days painting, to working on music selection late into the night, all our events are created through collaborative effort. A big thanks goes out to everyone who made this possible. From the very kind and helpful landowners, to producers/logistics, artists and creators, and the load in/load out teams, and our dedicated kitchen staff. There are a lot of moving parts in an event of this scale, and everyone who had a hand in helping deserves a big applause for their hard work and dedication.

Bangarang's first annual gathering for a weekend of art, music, community, and fun

This sea holly looked like a ball of lavender, but without the overwhelming odor. The tiny flowers and spiked leaves were a nice contrast to the typical large petaled flowers

This lady's slipper orchid was so striking with all its tiny hairs and vibrant stripes. It reminded me of the carnivorous pitcher plants which lure insects in with sweet nectar.

This cluster of small yellow flowers looked like it had tiger stripes. I would normally identify a less commonly seen flower like this, but alas in my excitement to capture all the flower show had to offer, I did not take down the necessary classification information. If anyone has knowledge of this flower, please feel free to drop it in the comments!

Simple patterns and repetition draw the eye. The petals guide insects to the stamen, like a flashy sign saying 'all you can eat pollen'. For all nature's complexities, its desired goals are predicable,

The succulent wall was so colorful and vibrant; what a variety of shapes and hues. On an unrelated note, happy 80th birthday, dad! I'll be unavailable for bookings for the rest of the month.

These clusters of tiny sky blue flowers reminded me of a colorful pine cone. Nature employs a lot of fractal patterns that seem related...do you think it's due to convergent evolution or having similar genetic ancestors?

The spiraling stamen, lavender coloration and delicate ridges caught my eye. Now that spring is here, it's time to decide how many things I want to grow in my limited space.

Orchids have such vibrant coloration and look almost insect-like. I always managed to either drown, or ignore mine to death. This orchid's caretaker seems more attentive than I was.

I find myself more drawn to the smaller scales recently; a change in perspective can be most illuminating. Most of my series from the Philadelphia Flower Show were taken with a Sigma 2.8 macro.

I was recently corrected - these dancing human puppets are not dragons, as the dragon puppets are much longer and controlled by several people. This is one of the traditional Lion Dance puppets, controlled by only one or two people for the Chinese New Year celebration in Philadelphia.

I've been working on a lot of different projects, from corporate head shots, to big events, to product shoots for some great companies.

Here's some delicious dried strawberries from Gourmet Nuts & Dried Fruit. They have some amazing, quality ingredients for bulk or wholesale costs.
