In my portrait photography I have always felt that scars were part of the stories that our bodies tell.

This photograph I took of June Gladney is one of those stories.

So these photographs of scars and tattoos from Bored Panda spoke to me. Even though they are not in any way full portraits, they still are striking stories. There are tattoos that hide scars, tattoos that show scars or incorporate them into the design. And there are tattoos that comment on scars. Each persons’ story is different. The tattoo becomes part of the story.

I was obsessed with my eclipse shadow photos and those will be done in a few weeks. These are photos that I like that I took on the way back while trying to avoid the smoke.

This was taken in the stunning Malheur River Canyon.

And this textured image was taken in the Trinity Alps in California.

This image was taken in the eastern Oregon desert.

I didn’t think I would be able to capture the levels of smoke in the atmosphere. I took a lot of photos when we were stopped for road work on Highway 299 in California, again in the Trinity Alps. (Except for art I would not have willingly breathed that air.) I didn’t have much choice about where I shot. I took a long time to sort through all of them. This one really works.
