Day 423 of 365 More. One of my life goals is to someday celebrate Columbus Day. i’ve never had the opportunity. Not in school. Not in college. Not in any job I’ve ever held. I mean, we have a day where a clueless white pirate got lost at sea and brought syphilis to the new…

Day 417 of 365 More. Life sucks sometimes. In fact, life sucks most of the time. I don’t know why that is. But I wish it would stop. Sometimes it does stop. For like ten seconds, the world melts completely away, and everything is ok. Then it goes back to sucking. I wish ten seconds…

Day 392 of 365 More. So today I started filling out preliminary paperwork to start at what I’ve been calling job #2. Next week. I guess you could say its a done deal. But its not. It’s like at 99% certainty, but if life kicking me in the ass repeatedly over the last 33+ years…

Day 388 of 365 More. I’ve been in a dreary mood today. I have no idea why. Honestly it was kind of a good day. Had a Labor Day BBQ with various friends from complete different social circles, which always makes for an interesting evening. Finally found out yesterday that I didn’t get the job…

Day 383 of 365 More. Gentlemen…we can rebuild him. Bigger! Stronger! Better in bed! I actually initially had this idea about a week ago when watching a commercial for the new Bionic Woman series that’s coming out this fall. Then when I talked about all of my lifelong injuries the other day I figured I…

Day 374 of 365 More. Depression breeds creativity. Apparently anyway. At mediocre creativity. See… I’m trapped. My only outlet is photography. It’s a metaphor, get it? Oh nevermind. Was once again hoping for a job call. Was once again disappointed. I do have a bead on a very short contract (maybe a week) with an…

Day 366 of 365 More. Cheers. Before I do anything else, I want to wish a happy birthday to my lovely fiancee, Stephanie. In many ways, 365 only exists because of Stephanie. We went on vacation for her birthday last year and while she was sleeping, I was in a hotel room with nothing to…

Day 364 of 365 days. "I’m not merciful or blessed. I’m just me. I’ve got a job to do and I do it….When the first living thing existed, I was there. Waiting. When the last living thing dies, my job will be finished. I’ll put the chairs on the tables, turn out the lights and…

Day 363 of 365 days. A lot of people have asked me if Jack Scoresby is really dead after yesterday’s picture. Of course not. He’s alive and well. Just shorter than he used to be. See… he’s right here. Strangely, after taking his head and absorbing his power, my photo style has changed a little…

Day 362 of 365 days. Jack Scoresby is dead. I was forced to take his life. As many of you may know, Jack has been traveling the countryside the last week or so and visiting other flickr photographers. It all sounded very interesting and harmless. He spent the last several days with Katie West. But…

Rachael with parasol b&w

Amaya had the idea of doing a nude photoshoot down at one of her favorite spots in West Virginia. So I took Rachael and Laurie down there to do the shoot with her.

We got there at the crack of dawn to catch golden hour light which provided some amazing results in my opinion.

This is actually one of my favorite shots I’ve ever taken, I think. The problem with being "an artist" is that no matter how much other people like your work, you’re always your own toughest critic. There’s usually tons I don’t like about any given picture I take. This one on the other hand makes me feel like I might actually have a smidgen of talent.
