This image is dedicated to the President of the United States of America, Mr. Barak Hussein Obama. OK, he might never get to see this image and he might never get to know about this dedication either. What a pity, he doesn’t know what he is missing. LOL!

So you might be wondering why I am doing this. The sitting president has on his desk a proposal to create a new national monument called Bear Ears. This national monument would give protection to 1.9 million acres and contains more than 100,000 cultural and archeological sites. At the moment this area is the most significant unprotected archeological area in the United States.

There is a fierce political battle going on. On one side republican Utah representatives Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz who are telling constituents for three years that they have been drafting legislation to protect the area, but they failed to introduce legislation containing specific boundaries and provisions. It became increasingly clear that the so-called negotiations that they aimed to run out the clock on the Obama administration’s ability to use the Antiquities Act to create a national monument.

On the other side of the rope is an unprecedented Inter-Tribal Coalition of 26 tribes and other environmentally interested organizations trying to get the President of the Untied States of America to sign the bill before he leaves the office beginning of next year.

Obama has previously showed vision and courage in using this authority, and creating a Bears Ears National Monument would be very much in that tradition and fully justified by the facts.

A petroglyph hidden somewhere deep in the Saguaro National Park. Its meaning is lost to our time.

Petroglyphs are reminiscence of old gone times when the antecedents of present Native Americans roamed freely through the North American continent. No one really knows its meaning. Some are quite figurative while others are abstract and quite enigmatic. Finding these is always a special moment. Something that most keep for themselves without sharing the location.

It took me three trips to the Volcanic Tablelands by Bishop (CA) to find this particular display. After my first successful visit I returned to this collection of petroglyphs uncountable times. Each time I felt as being placed back in time. It was as if the breeze was whispering ancient magical words into my ears. This particular evening was the moment were all elements fitted together to provide this transcendent moment of being back in long passed times.

This image was created up at Cedar Mesa (UT) depicting an Ancestral Puebloan dwelling. The uniqueness lays in the pictograph which is not really a pictograph. I would call it a mudgraph as it was not painted with some colors as you would expect if from a pictograph. It was done with mud. The very same mud that was used to plaster the stones together for the dwellings you can see in this image.

The white men came to North America and it was already populated by Native Americans. There was not much respect for these inhabitants. There was not much interest for their cultural values, beliefs and history either. Interest and respect is surfacing slowly and the feeling that the native cultural legacy is to be studied, valued and preserved is coming up. The latest sweeping move in this regard was the creation of the Bears Ears National Monument December 28, 2016. Needless to say that the new administration wants to shrink the boundaries considerably. Drilling, farming and driving off-road vehicles seems to be more important. O tempora o mores!

There are multiple White Houses in the US. The most famous one is better not to be mentioned at this moment as it is a complete embarrassment. Luckily enough there are other White Houses which are quite inspiring.

This is an old image taken at Canyon de Chelly with a fresh post-processing approach. Getting to this spot is easy, getting back to the car not so much …

It is not very easy to take a shot of this place. Ansel Adams visited the White House Ruin himself and created an iconic photograph. I saw an original print in Santa Fe several years ago. The price tag was US$ 185,000!!! Getting beyond his creation is a challenge. Getting beyond the price tag impossible!
