WE will take photos with state-of-the-art cameras and audio equipment.
I will teach photography as well as cinematography, as I did for the National Park Service on a series of devices:
iPhone 14 Pro Max (Night and day modes)
iPad Pro M2 12.9"
Samsung Android smartphone
Nikon DSLR with 50-105 mm lens,
Canon mirrorless with up to 2800 mm lens
Smartphone Apps (45 commonly taught about as I did for the National Park Service)
I will create a GOOGLE PHOTO ALBUM OF OUR ADVENTURE! ALL of our photos/videos will be assembled into an album to share with all those who missed the adventure.
WE will remember THIS!
This is perhaps for many a once in a lifetime birding expedition in the Museum of Nature and Industry!

Sunrise on the Dune Ridge Trail
Giving the illusion that light bends...
On the Dune Ridge Trail from Kemil Beach parking lot in Beverly Shores--- my favorite place for a sunrise without question.

From 3/27/23 moon hiking adventure
A photo from a recent POP UP HIKE - Polar Moon Adventure on 2.3.23
Here is a Google Photos of some more photos from that hike:
These were marine recruits I had the honor of being with, hiking at the Indiana Dunes State Park as a little training before taking off to boot camp in San Diego. After getting on top of the Devil’s Slide, the marine sergeants made them do PUSH UPS and jumping jacks all so that we can have FREEDOM.
Never shown GIF I made in July, 2020. I NEVER LOOKED THROUGH THE LENS OF THE NIKON D7000. I JUST HELD IT NOT KNOWING WHAT I WOULD GET SO I WOULDN'T CAUSE DISTRACTION WITH THE CAMERA. They don't mind photos. Mennonites will often have a camera. Amish will not use electricity nor be vain.

Remember my goals:
1. GET people out of their toxic drywall boxes
2. TAKE them to see nature
3. TEACH them about nature
4. LOVE and nurture them so they experience and LOVE the nature of nature
5. The last is the most difficult.
Get them to want to PROTECT & PRESERVE nature.
My first HUGE project in environmentalism:
AT THE TOP OF THE WEB PAGE THERE ARE TWO PHOTOS:
The top photo is from a hike I led with 48 Amish people. It was so much fun and they really appreciated the Indiana Dunes. The second photo that says, "sit LESS hike MORE," is a shadow photograph with me on the left, a person who has Alzheimer's and haven't been on a hike in ten years.
