Rotting Roses

I did this one on Sunday morning just as an exercise.  Still life isn’t really my style but it is a nice practice to visit now and then to hone skills.  I got these flowers for Jessi a few weeks ago and they’re pretty  much dried out and falling apart now.  I liked the texture of them […]

Crown Graphic

It has been awhile since I’ve posted anything and I’ve missed the creative flow.  I’m now 8 weeks into my new job as a high school photography teacher and free time is quite rare.  Things are going very well and I enjoy the job but it comes at the price of 12 hour work days […]

New Jersey Train Station

Last weekend my wife and I went to New Jersey. This was our first time being East of the Mississippi… actually, our first time East of New Mexico and North of Colorado. Along with this we experienced several other “firsts.” Before arriving in New Jersey, this Arizona suburban boy had never ridden a public bus […]
