Craving Adventure

It’s funny how you can miss even the hardest times.
I guess when they are over… they just become part of your collection of adventures.

Im craving to create more.

Lessons in everything

My hard drive messed up and I lost a lot of work. 400 GB to be exact! At first I freaked a bit, but once realizing I had personal picture backed up (nephews being born etc.) I relaxed a bit. I started to think of why this happened? What am I suppose to learn from this?

1)Back up work more – obviously
2) Maybe that’s the thing about art… it’s almost like an expression that can pass, because a new one is always sprouting up. Maybe those pieces were just lessons to carry onto the next peice. Maybe I am just doing these for the love of doing them, and not as attached to the outcome as I thought.

I guess that really is true passion.
How freeing.

At the start of my path.

This 4 by 5 film camera definitely helped with my deeper understanding of the photography process, but I would never go back! haha
This picture not only reminds me of the camera… but even where my mind was at in photography,
it’s become such a deeper thing to me now.
Back then it was about creating a beautiful picture, now it’s about expressing ideas.

The click.

No, I am not talking about the click of the shutter, but a click that happens within me when I see the right picture. The click that happens, after looking through a ton of pictures i’ve taken when one stands out, when one just clicks and you know that is the “one”. It’s instant. Here is a little preview of what I mean. I went through over a hundred pictures and these two just clicked instantly.

Laurelsee.

Backstage in New Orleans

Here are a few pictures of me shooting some Banksy pieces in New Orleans.  The hunt to find all of them in the city was so cool.. we ran into a few other people on the hunt to find all his pieces too.  They were done after Hurricane Katrina when a lot of the city was evacuated. Stopped in a graveyard for a few shots too as well as shot the craziest wedding i’ve ever heard of.

Enjoy. I sure did.



As my waterproof camera gently weeps…

The last pictures taken with my underwater camera… must have leaked… but the effects were kinda cool. R.I.P hehe
