Daniel Arnold’s Arizona

My best buddy, Daniel Arnold, is one hell of a photographer and writer. But I’m sure you already knew that. And if you didn’t, then stop what you’re doing, head on over to his website, When To Say Nothing, and then read his blog, Born To Be Nervous, both of which are amongst the best places to spend time on the Internet.

Two weekends ago, Daniel flew from New York to Los Angeles for a wedding, and on the way, in that big aluminum sardine can in the sky, took some beautiful photos of those pretty red rocks in Arizona. What a view.

Enjoy more after the jump…

Jonathan Levitt (Part II)

After a few months of emailing back and forth, I asked Jonathan Levitt if he would write captions for a couple of my favorite photographs of his that I could post on Cold Splinters. The first installment, “Hedgelings and I Bothered By:,” can be found here. The second installment in the series, “Ducktrapia,” is above and can be seen much larger right here. Here’s what I wrote the first time:

Jonathan Levitt’s photos are of pet wolves and rural Maine, swimming in ice cold rivers and old Coleman stoves. It’s the morose side of being in the woods, the feeling that I most long for when I’m not camping. When you live in the city, that loneliness, even when felt in the company of loved ones, is the best part. Needless to say, I’ve been spending a lot of time on his photoblog, Grass Doe, over the last couple of months, admiring “Ducktrapia.” (From Jon: “Ducktrapia is a small settlement along the shores of the Ducktrap River in Ducktrap, Maine. For ten years, anthrophotographist Jonathan Levitt has been living among the Ducktrapians, documenting their way of life.”)
