Grass Valley, CA I was in Grass Valley a bit ago for work and Jen and I got to stay at the beautiful home of our friend Amanda Evans. Our time there was short and yet so refreshing, it was nice to be out of the city for a little bit. While I was looking over these photos the lines of this Wendell Berry poem kept coming to mind : [ When despair for the world grows in me and I wake...
Pataskala, Ohio » Let us pause in life’s pleasures, and count its many tears. While we all sup sorrow with the poor. There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears. O, Hard times come again no more. »

1.1.11 I’m really in disbelief that 2010 is over. What a full year! Filled with such great change, travel and growth as an artist. Sometimes years will pass - and things seems to stay relatively the same. This was not the case for this past year. I felt more heavily the weight of change, loss and gain in this year than ever before in my life. With those changes came great pain and...
Reykjavik, Iceland. My favorite city in the world…so far.
low tide on the island & the earth is changing
going through archives today & i found this shot. I didn’t get to put it in my show but it was always one of my favorites. Out of all my portraits from that show this said what I needed it to the most. It’s kodak porta 400nc shot on the good ole 8x10 camera.
