Welcome to W. Valler Photography, formerly Dark Sky Photography. The site is going to be overhauled soon, but presently it is being migrated to a new host. Be sure to let me know if you see any issues. Thanks for your patience!
Just want to recognize the passing of an amazing and very unique artist.
There’s plenty of articles and discussions and tributes out there, about his life, his work, his career, and speculation about meanings of his recent songs and videos. Lots of reading material. Enough text and video (and music!!) to keep you busy for days – weeks – who knows how long?
I spent most of yesterday, off and on, reading about him and watching videos past and present and I really only scratched the surface.
Not only did his career span 40 – 50 years but it appears that he spent the last year or so building a grand finale. A parting gift to us as some people said. It seriously left most fans in awe, even a state of shock perhaps.
He seemed to have suffered in silence – not sure how many knew he was sick – but his passing was heard and felt all around the world. I feel it was planned that way.
This post is already longer than I intended it to be. It was meant to be a nod and a farewell to one of the most creative artists ever to grace the music industry, and a thank you for all his contributions. I am fortunate to have heard his voice as long as I’ve been aware of music in my life and will hear it until I am gone.
Thank you David Jones, and rest in peace.
Here’s a much shorter entry from yesterday on my Saturdays blog…
Have a very happy and safe holiday season, from Dark Sky Photography!

Welcome to all my subscribers. The numbers snuck up on me over time and now there are nearly 200 of you. Wow!
I wonder, however, how many are real people with real interest in Continue reading “Subscribers! Please Read!”
Hi! Long time no blog. I’m still here. Haven’t been doing much, business-wise but definitely been busy.

Well, the Project-365 is now done (early). I have too much on my plate to keep it going. And I know I was doing it as much for myself as anyone else, but it was discouraging to not know if anyone was even looking at it…so a lack of interest all around I guess. But I’ll still post occasional photos and general bloggage.
Speaking of photos, I have a lot of new ones Continue reading “Speaking of – Bloggage News and No More P-365 :(“
Hi. Long time no post!
I am doing a Project 365 (photo a day) again this year after taking a long break from such a thing. It is part of my Saturdays! blog. The first entry (January 1) is here – just go backwards from there, and follow the whole blog if you don’t already.
Saturdays! generally consists of Continue reading “Project 365”
Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween. It’s a little late I suppose to post this photo, although if you are a personal Facebook friend, you probably saw it as my cover photo for Halloween week. Halloween is easily my favorite holiday.
I created this photo in my “mini” Continue reading “Updates…”
Been busy with product photos for an up and coming pet supply website. I’ll post a link when the site goes live.
In the meantime, I obviously had to come up with a pricing plan for product photography, as I didn’t yet have one. Continue reading “Pricing”
