While experimenting with my camera's time lapse features in a Boulder Colorado park, I found Michael Grab working hard at play in Boulder Creek. This short feature doesn't do his work justice but at least you can get an idea of what he does. He's amazing. It's a real joy to see him create these beautiful natural rock sculptures. Lots of people have watched him work. The Daily Camera ran a story about Mike the day after most of this video was shot.

BTW: The tubers were the original reason I came to the creek to shoot. I included them in this piece because I thought their energetic antics in the back ground played well against the Zen of Mike's art work. So please take a deep breath, sit back, find your own balancing point and, as Mike might suggest, lean into your discomfort.
Aspen Public Radio asked if I could do an interview about Zina. If for some reason you are interested you can check that out here. http://aspenpublicradio.org/post/mourning-friend-creates-portrait-young-artist
In August 2013 my friend Zina asked if I could shoot a video for her portfolio. She needed something that would showcase her work but also tell a little bit about her personality and her interests. We had two days to shoot and edit so we shot an interview and smashed something together to meet our deadline. On November 20, 2013 Zina passed away due to a hiking accident in Ouray, CO. After the funeral I revisited the footage and made this short as an attempt to capture her personality and creativity. I never planned to release it online but now I have a chance to share her and her creations with all of you! For all who are part of the Zina Lahr love bomb, this is for you!
WOW! The response to this video is incredible and completely unexpected! Cindy (Zina's mother), her family, and I are so blown away by all of this and I want to thank everyone who is taking the time to celebrate the life of my precious friend.
I have received an incredible amount of emails from people who are wishing to donate to the Zina Lahr Memorial Fund. So if you wish to help the family of Zina Lahr you can call the Citizen's State Bank of Ouray Colorado at (970) 325-4352. You can also donate to the Weehawken Creative Arts Zina Lahr Memorial Scholarship. All the money for this scholarship helps kids pay for art classes in the within Weehawken Creative Arts program located on the western slope of Colorado. Zina did an incredible amount of volunteer work for this wonderful non profit. From props to set pieces Zina was the magic behind it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am so happy Zina can continue to inspire.
