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.

    Lovely color, but I see the Tickle Monster and not 5 points. 🙂

  2. Now THAT’S a different perspective, Bo. Very, very nice and I love the color.

      Yep, amazing the different ways possible to shoot flowers. The colors of the flowers in Washington did seem to be particularly deep and luscious. Maybe all the rain???

  3. Such an unusual (and creative) take on the columbine…and it WORKS! Well done, Bo.

  4. I guess I can not help but say what everyone else has : that is truly an entirely new perspective, I think. Makes people want to stop and see what it is, just because it out of the ordinary. Very cool.
