Kat's photo gallery


Here is a selection of random pictures not included in Tie Dye Travels, but that still deserve a viewing. I'm just a hobbyist when it comes to photography, but I'd love your comments. And, if you'd like to use any of these images, please contact me.

A church in El Dorado, AR, about a block from Main Street Pizza. This was taken on an August afternoon when the air was almost perfectly still.






This is a preparation of a dish from the Middle Ages called "Orange Omelet for Harlot or Ruffian," basically a sweet omelet. My team made this during the Siege Cooking competition at an SCA event, Midsummer Knight's Dream, in September 2007. It was tasty.

This picture was taken in Dennard, AR on September 9, 2007, just south of the big runaway truck ramp on Highway 67. I was on my way to Branson, two days after leaving my old job as producer for Today's THV This Morning. The sky was overcast, and the weather was surprisingly chilly for a day in early September.

A picture taken on the Branson Scenic Railway in the Dome Car on September 11, 2007.













While writing up the Tour of Missouri bicycle race, I captured this shot of a bicycle racing team from Mexico, warming up. Picture taken on September 13, 2007.






This is a shot of the backside of the tiny smokehouse building at Booger Hollow. My brother and I traveled up there on October 17, 2007. The fog was so heavy, it muffled everything. Though the car was still running, when I was on this side of the smokehouse, I couldn't hear it. The place felt haunted.

We were on our way back from Alread, halfway to Clinton, on an incredibly stormy afternoon. We rounded a curve and saw a strange rainbow -- full of purples and yellows but no green at all. This shot was taken in the opposite direction, towards the setting sun. My mom has a similar picture taken from Little Rock on the same day. This is the picture you see rendered in black and white at the top of the Tie Dye Travels page.

This is a shot of the old Kiwanis Hall at Camp Taloha, outside of Pine Bluff, AR. It's falling apart, but is a beautiful old structure. A new, modern hall has been built at this former Girl Scout camp, and the folks who run the camp are evaluating ways to bring the old hall down. I wish it could be renovated. It's all old timbers and screen inside, but it's a beautiful piece of history and it will be a shame when it's gone.

A cypress tree off the dock at The Dock restaurant in Lake Providence, LA. Picture taken October 28, 2007.













My brother Zack and I sighted this rock formation outside of Calico Rock, AR on our trip up to visit the ghost town up there.






My husband makes fun of me for taking these road shots... but I love the perspective. Taken on Highway 9 outside of Mountain View in early November, 2007.





I caught this shot while traveling Highway 70 just east of Forrest City in early November 2007.

The tracks at Traskwood, AR.










The old Fordyce Bathhouse on Hot Springs' Bathhouse Row. I went down just a few days before Christmas, but couldn't grab a story -- no one wanted to talk so close to the holidays!




A friendly dog greets me at my car at Chateau aux Arc in Altus, AR.

This is a church at Copley and Clarendon in Boston, Trinity Episcopal Church. It's one of the first buildings I photographed in Boston, after getting off the subway at the wrong stop on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008.

The fantastic relief work on another church about four blocks away, just off of Newbury.


The John Hancock Tower, photographed from Copley Square about a block from the Boston Public Library.




A view of the Beacon Hill area from the Skywalk Observatory, Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008. It looks like a quilt to me.


Once again putting my nose to the grindstone.




Faneuil Hall, Thursday, January 24th, 2008.





On the left: Louis Garcia, longtime friend and transplant to the Boston area. Couldn't ask for a better guide. On the right: Paul Robinson, my dear husband. Can you tell he talks with his hands?



I haven't a clue what building this is, but it's pretty. This picture was taken from an intersection by The Place, near Mr. Dooley's.




Shot taken down the Greenway (above what's been called the Big Dig) near Haymarket. I see this and think: monolith.


Christopher Columbus Park.




Boston skyline from East Boston.



My husband Paul and I, freezing our batookas off.




These items part of a complete breakfast at the Onyx Hotel. I especially appreciated the wide variety of fresh fruit and granola. Oh, and they have bacon, never fear.




Taken on a frosty morning in Haymarket, Friday, January 25th, 2008.
