Bricks and Beauty


Columns of Color © 2007

How long did it take to paint those columns? A work of love. Wonder if they’d take volunteers next time?



Meticulous Trim © 2007

A change from nature in Wisconsin – a road trip to Indiana. We took a weekend trip to Indianapolis, and on a detour, saw this detailed beauty  of a house.

Photographed in Vandersberg, Indiana, a small village on the Indiana-Illinois border.


About Bo Mackison

I’m a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place – a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I’d love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It’s my gift to you.
