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.


  1. Very cool photos, Bo. I’ve never seen much of that around KC.

  2. WOW! Well I guess the grafitti makes the railway cars more interesting. Love how you’ve captured it!

  3. Very cool. I like graffiti. It often looks like a lot of work has gone into it.

  4. A graffiti artist might be the purest kind of artist. While a few might do it out of mischief, the main components must do it out of love, since someone with a spray can will often be offered scorn, but never compensation.

  5. Wonderful subject matter. This is a nice collection.

  6. They do some interesting stuff, don’t they! Too bad more of that energy and talent can’t be better used.

  7. It’s interesting how the paint is crackling on the box car.

  8. as a graffiti artist i love seeing pictures like this. in the graffiti world a real passionate graffiti artist is’nt out in the community to break the law and to do destruction but to become a known artist and get their name and art out to there to other people. is’nt that what every artist is striving for?
