Nothing is more beautiful than watching a little hatchling plant come into this world.

I have a huge fear of walking on a frozen ice. I decided to just do it to see how it felt way out there. I walked halfway out to the middle of Lake Lackawanna and then photographed my fear.

On a trip to Burlington I stumbled upon this small lighthouse called the North Light. I loved the line in the middle of the water, the foggy landscape only allowing a bit of mountains to show, and especially how she was standing perfectly in the center. Vermont is a beautiful state.

I took screenshots of various graphics from the original Super Mario Brothers, modeled them as 3D objects using Lightwave, put together this mushroom scene, and then edited the final render in Photoshop. Mixing the old with the new.

I get so annoyed at all the stupid signs taking over peoples yards around election season. They are unattractive and I really can’t see them having much impact on voters… I decided to design my own sarcastic and idiotic yard signs, get them printed and place them right along a busy road. I wonder if anyone noticed?

Grain Of Sand

I really like its beautiful simplicity, and what may appear to be massive – is actually just a single grain of sand. I photographed it with a microscope using a method known as “focus stacking” in order to achieve greater detail. This is when you take multiple exposures with different focus points and then blend them together.

Two dried poppies intertwined, scanned on a flatbed and printed six feet tall. Especially at that size, we relate, and there is something romantic about the simple embrace.

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 like the idea of using everything possible as a camera lens.

I found this image in a folder full of old work. I remember it well… I was walking around Providence, Rhode Island, late at night with my camera and a notepad. I took this photograph and wrote this short poem while standing there:

I hear the rain in the gutter
and the sound of the shutter
of my camera blinking
and thinking of how to capture
the light of the night.
