Night Moves in Blue

It had been too long since I had taken my self-portraiture medicine.  I was starting to get twitchy-twitchy (yes, doubly twitchy).  I have been unable make space during the daylight hours to accomplish self-portraits as of late- a temporary issue, but one I needed to work around.  In order to make this series of photographs, I had to break from my reliance on the sunshine.  I drew from a completely different light source, a “no signal” blue light from a […]

My Journey Story with Lensbaby

I got my first DSLR camera in 2010.  I just wanted a camera that would take better pictures of my children, who were toddlers then.  At the time, I had no idea that photography would become the primary vessel through which I would develop my craft as an artist.  When I step back and look at my whole life picture, however, this all began well before I got that Rebel T2i DSLR in 2010.  My photography is very personal and […]

Caught by the Moon

I wrote a little thing yesterday in a waiting room.  The photos came by night, unable to sleep….around 1am by using only streetlight coming in my bedroom windows. Waiting Moon You…you…find me like this, and I’m sorry You…you…love me like this, like I’m worthy And for all I know, I can’t comprehend it And you’ll never make me understand it Chasing me down that silent street My streetlight shadows outrun my feet, and I’ll trip again on that unsteady tightrope For […]

The Tear

The Tear I got to hold her in my arms again, after so many years No longer of flesh and bone, she’s free to find me In my dreams…for a few too short moments she’s there It’s an unbearable heartache when she disappears I can’t let go, so I hold on and hold together the tear My mind finds a way to give me what I miss, what I need So that deep sorrow upon awaking will soon let up And […]

Everything and the Kitchen Sink

Lately, I have been drawn to the light and shadow patterns around my kitchen sink, and well, me being me, I wanted to photograph what I was seeing.  I accumulated enough images over the course of a couple of mornings that I thought it made sense to turn it into a little project.  All of these pictures are taken in my kitchen sink or very close proximity to it.  I used the Hipstamatic app camera for all of these pictures and edited […]
