Street photography junkie, just can't stop. As Ira Glass says, keep producing work. I like low key photos a lot, so that's what you'll usually get here. I also enjoy urban, rural and nature photography. I am always receptive to suggestions and constructive criticism. I understand this is a networking site, but I would appreciate honest criticism about what I did wrong just as much as about what I did right. False praise to get people to look at your portfolio doesn't help anyone.

Inspiration In The Gutter

Published October 7th, 2012

My inspiration has been in the gutter this year - starting a new day job and moving into a new place has cut into my camera time severely. A rather blah art walk showing also dinged my will ... another one coming this week though, so hopefully things will swing the other way! Sorry for the flood of pics a few days back, went back and revisited a bunch of older pics to see if I could liven them up a bit.

Back From Paradise

Published January 10th, 2012

I'm in the San Juan airport waiting for my flight home. Just spent 10 days in Puerto Rico and had a really great time. I highly recommend the beaches of Boqueron and the lushness of El Yunque National Forest. Lots of really great photo opportunities. Tons of pictures taken, of course. I never thought I'd fill up an 8 GB card even shooting RAW. I backed up my photos every day onto the netbook I bought just for that purpose. That way if something ever happens to the camera, I at least have a backup.

Back to Reality

Published December 4th, 2011

My trip is almost at an end, as in 3 days I will be back in Seattle. I haven't been keeping up with everyone's submissions, which I apologize for. Aside from driving, I spent the last couple of days photographing Badlands National Park as well as a very brief stint at Devil's Tower that was cut short by a snow storm. The sunrise at Badlands didn't turn out that great, and I can see I really need to work on my low-light technique. Learning something new is always a good thing.

I don't go back to work until January, so I hope to catch up with everyone's great work soon.

Nashville

Published November 9th, 2011

I'm in Nashville for the next couple of weeks visiting family. I grew up here and it's nice to come back once in a while to visit. I plan on visiting downtown and getting some street shots in while I'm here. Time permitting I'll get a hike in and get some more fall foliage shots as well. Anyone know of any photo walks going on here?

On my time off I'm giving the Photoshop CS5.1 trial a spin, and I have to say I am impressed enough that throwing down that much $$$ doesn't seem as far-fetched as it used to. I have gotten by with GIMP so far and it's a good alternative for those that don't have the $$$ for PS. PS however blows GIMP away in terms of usability.

On The Road

Published October 16th, 2011

On a road trip across the US, won't be on often but will try to keep up as I can. Definitely taking photos along the way and will post when I have time. In Laramie, Wyoming for tonight; Wyoming is beautiful country but the overcast sky didn't make for good photos today. We'll see what Nebraska has to offer tomorrow.
