This morning, I’m getting ready to travel down to the International UFO Congress in Fountain Hills, Arizona, just shy North of Scottsdale. It will be a four day hosted event and I will be one of the event photographers. I’m pretty excited to be networking and meeting with people who study flying saucers and aliens and hop to capture some great photos for Open Minds TV.
George Knapp and Bob Lazar will be presenting as well, with a Q&A session. Bob is the man who allegedly brought the spot light to Area 51 and S-4 and George Knapp is an established investigative journalist out of Las Vegas whose maintained a neutral but favorable stance on the UFO Phenomena and even Bob Lazar’s claims that the government is back engineering ET saucer technology. Most recently, George co-authored a book about a remote ranch in Fort Duchesne; one of Utah’s most paranormal hotspots titled; “Hunt for the Skinwalker” which documents a ranching family’s encounters with strange orbs, UFOs, and alien beings on their newly acquired retreat over an 18 month period, after relocating from New Mexico. The news of these bizarre and spooky events hit national headlines which led to the book.
The evidence for these mysteries are numerous, from cattle mutilations, to lights in the sky on the Navajo Reservation in Northern Arizona. The UFO Phenomenon has long played an integral part of the history and folklore of the American Southwest. Why rule out the possibility that some of these anomalies may in fact be real? I have had my own experiences but I approach the topic from an optimistic approach. I tend to consider the pessimistic arguments about the phenomenon and try to overlook a lot of the negative. Yes, some people declare these alien visitors as hostile and evil. I tend to look the other way at all these evil humans. There could be several benevolent and malevolent entities visiting our Earth but there has to be a silver lining of good behind every dark cloud and what I’m searching for is the truth. Just as the fact that not every human is evil, so is reality of extraterrestrials. This is why I decided to start a festival in Utah, so we could begin discussing the possibilities and I’m on side of the argument approaches this phenomenon with enthusiasm instead of paranoia!
I hope upon my return from this journey that I’ll have some solid contacts for the Utah UFO Festival which is the reason I’m going on this journey and get some take some excellent photos for Open Minds! I’m grateful that they have given me this opportunity to do some photography for them.
