The Black Crowes are coming to Quincy for the 2010 High Sierra Music Festival. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the festival. Photo submitted Photographer captures 'show' every day Rockel Eriksen Special to Feather Publishing Richard Daun lives in a small house on Coburn Street in Quincy. It is a Sears Catalog house built in the '30s. The exterior is mod- est but charming; there are two welcoming little pots of flowers at the top of the stairs on either side of the enclosed entryway. Inside, the house is filled with light and the walls are covered with Daun's photographs and other art- work. Most of the pieces in some way connect the view- er .... with ' tlie  hatU'al world: an: intimate mo- ment shared by a pair of sandhill cranes; the beauti- ful blue, green, black irides- cence of a tree swallow lit by the sun; or a single oak leaf frosted by the cold as though it were dipped in sugar. For many years Daun has enjoyed photographing wildlife and the beauty of Plumas County. Since mov- ing to Quincy in 1980, he has been building and de- signing custom homes and drafting house plans. Daun grew up in Chilton, Wis. He attended University of Wisconsin-Madison and has a bachelor's degree in professional art and design. Daun has worked in many different mediums, includ- ing painting and sculpture. He didn't really get interest- ed in photography until af- ter college when he began to travel. He took photos of ar- chitecture and recorded the many places he visited. Growing up in a small town he always had a deep- seated love of nature and the outdoors. This, along with his studies of composition and design, influences his art. Eight years ago his son bought him a digital camera and everything changed. Daun loves to hike and routinely would walk every morning for at least an hour, sometimes with the camera, sometimes not; but now, he always has his camera. "It's like a treasure hunt, the colors, light and shad- ows, always something amazing." He captured an image of his dog Paka swimming up to his neck in a pond filled with the refection of the sky and foliage. The picture con- tains so many fragmented shades of green, blue and yellow that it looks like a painting done in the style of van Gogh. The photo looks like it was digitally en- harced but it was not. Daun says he was just at the right place at the right time. "The colors and reflec- tions are always changing, light changes. Life is hap- pening all around us all the time, it's a cycle. We have to remember this and that we are just a part of it. The rea- son I am a photographer now is this amazing show going on every day." Daun's photography is now on display at Main Street Artists Gallery in downtown Quincy. A tree swallow perched just before flight, an example of photographer Richard Daun's atten- tion to color and composition -- and a little wonder. Photographer Richard Daun has lived in Quincy since 1980. When he's not designing custom homes, he's capturing intimate moments in the natural world with his camera.
