A curving railroad running next to the Thomas River in Connecticut. This was photographed by putting my camera up to a periscope at the Submarine Force Library and Museum.
I decided to go for a walk at night and collect fallen leaves. My goal was to get a lot of different colors. I then captured each of them using a flatbed scanner, cropped them into stripes, and printed them out… You can hang just one by itself and it is beautiful, but when you combine many of them they being to work together in harmony. Happy fall.
This photograph was taken during the Mid-Atlantic United States flood of 2006, considered the worst flooding in the area since 1979. The waters forced thousands out of their homes, cost millions in damages, and even took lives. After it drained, in one area I saw mud covering the trees over 15 feet up. Still, in all disaster there is beauty, and I loved how this shopping center’s parking lot became a giant mirror.
