“You’re not going to lose me. You’ve given me a taste for life. I wanna be happy. Sleep in a bed, have roots. And you’ll never be alone again, Mathilda.” This was the quote from the 1994 movie, “The Professional,” that came to mind when I was trying to name the kitten I had picked up from a local rescue group.

Pacific Cross

It’s been a while since I brought in some judicious split-toning. It’s one of the first things I started experimenting with when I got my first dSLR and felt that it really helped my work stand out among the growing din of digital photographers.


Thunderbirds in the Park

On my way into Maymont Park to finally blast through a roll of Ilford SFX, I noticed a fleet of 17 Ford Thunderbirds decorating the lawn. Determined to get through this roll of pseudo-infrared film, I soldiered on…for about a handful of paces. Then, high-tailed it back to the car to get the camera loaded …

A Black and White Fourth

Somewhere a Squirrel is Flying

And a pig named Parker is enduring an uncomfortable ride around a baseball diamond. The Flying Squirrels season has started. Let’s all buy tickets, get some caramelized pecans, and drink buckets of beer!

Hey Zu’s

“The movement you need is on your shoulder…” One of the more confusing and powerful lines from a song.  I heard it growing up just like so many other people did, but it wasn’t until later that I really heard and was perplexed by it.  From what I understand, Paul McCartney is singing to Julian Lennon, …
