Expect a New Perspective

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I never realized how many definitions there were for ‘perspective’. Let me tell you something folks, there are many.

It’s been a little while since my last post. I like to post several photos at one time and have been collecting some new shots of interest to me.

The title of this post was made in the hope that it will inspire other photographers to look at things from a different view. A different angle. Maybe different lighting. Or possibly to wait for exactly the wrong thing to happen at just the right time.

Some of these shots are abstracts. Some people. Some furry friends. They are all interesting in their own way, and some delightfully unidentifiable. I do like to keep you guessing.

Here’s to a brand new year.

New memories.

New challenges.

New adventures.

Please enjoy!

This Is What Love Looks Like…

I want to share some of my favorite photographs with you.

All but two, I believe, were taken by me.

I love photographs that instantly make you feel. Sometimes you come across a picture that truly does say a thousand words. It’s a remarkable thing to be able to set your eyes upon an image, and suddenly you are transformed. You seem to somehow know the people you are looking upon, even though you’ve never met and probably never will.

You can tell what they were feeling. You maybe see a glimpse of what was passing through their mind, or within their heart.

That, my friends is a gift.

Please enjoy…

Stuff on My Cat(s)

What wonderful things can happen during moments of extreme boredom, 2 hilariously fun men in my life, one extremely over weight and loving cat, and LOTS of little objects laying around?

I will show you.

I have seen sites and photos on the internet of people stacking LOADS of objects on their poor defenseless cats, then taking photos of it, THEN posting it on the web for all to see. How could they?!?! I mean THE NERVE! And furthermore, what kind of self-respecting feline would allow such degradation? Mine. That’s what…

Laugh. I sure as hell did…

Meet Jasmine, my beautiful 8 year old baby, and her nemesis and roommate, Isis.

Jasmine is the victim of all but one photo, Isis doesn’t tolerate such nonsense.

Enjoy.

 

 

Down in Carolina

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have lived in the small town of Elizabeth City, North Carolina since August of 1996.

Originally, I am from Memphis, Tennessee and I’ve moved around quite a bit. Even with that, Elizabeth City was somewhat of a culture shock. Things move at a very different pace here. Really they have NO pace. Zero. It’s small. It’s quiet. There are lots of bodies of water. Lots of good down home people.

Recently, my dear friend Dawn invited me (and my ever-present camera) to her lovely home / self-made farm, just down the road. Everything here is ‘just down the road’.

I will let the photos speak for themselves. I can’t wait to come back Dawn! With freshly charged batteries this time…

Enjoy!

 

 

Gigantic Elf Fills In for Illustrator?

Um… Well, I wanted a random post. So I needed a random headline.

And my totally cool son found one.

Mission accomplished young Jedi.

My external hard drive recently bit the frog on me, so it’s been a little while since I posted new photos.

Here are some totally random photos, of totally random things. Tell your friends, and your neighbors, and your father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate – about my totally random shots.

I need feed back people!

Enjoy!

 

 

 

Beautiful Places

I wanted to try something a little different with this post so I could add a narrative to each to photo to tell you a little bit about where each one was taken.

I love photography.

I love getting lost in it.

I love climbing into my little car with all my gear and driving to no destination. Just getting lost. And being delighted.

Enjoy!

Losing Myself with Marbles

Okay. So today I made an announcement after breakfast.

I want to take pictures today.

Of what? I have no idea…

I asked my son’s permission to photograph his ultra cool marbles.

So.. here they are.

Enjoy!
