I got a chance to go out and take photos of the fall colors in the Denver foothills area. My college roommate, Rob Brown, was passing through town. Rob is also a photographer so we went out on a couple of day trips. The colors were pretty nice at Guanella Pass, Squaw Pass and Kenosha Pass.

It has been almost 4 months since I made a new post. My cancer really controls my life. I had to move from my mountain home of 31 years. We moved to a city of Lakewood. It's just 5 minutes from the hospital. We do have a nice park right next to us, Kendrick Lake. Walk over there last night and took these images. Hope to get out more!

Colorado - Papaleo - Best Photos of 2018.




























  While fighting my terminal bone marrow cancer, I was able to get out a little in 2018 and the above photos are my favorite. Now that the holidays are over, I hope to get out on more shoots.

Colorado - "Together Forever"



  Around this time of the year I post a Christmas blog, but with my illness, I haven't been out there much.  So this year I'm posting this piece "Together Forever" of my art work. I took the photo and had a black and white print made. I then paint it with home made Q/Tips that I make out of cotton and tooth picks. This image was printed 24 x 36 inches on metal. It, looked so good that is sold at an auction, for "Walk With Me", for $1,000. It is dedicated to my wife, Pam.

Colorado - Frost Covered Trees.





After a night of fog, the trees were covered with a layer of frost. I went out and got some nice images.

Colorado - Papaleo Recovering.



My bone marrow cancer got the best of me over the fall season. I'm still working my way back and should be ready for the winter photo season. Until then please go back to my blog "X Marks the Shot". There are 10 years of Colorado photos, covering the state.
Thanks, Ken

Went up to Loveland Pass right after the first dusting of snow, of the season. The ground cover had changed and the snow was a bonus. It was a calm day so I was able to get nice selection shots on the small lake put there. This pass is 1 hour from my house.
