Keep Left

Keep Left

As much as I would like to say this image is for all the disappointed Democrats after last night’s presidential debate, it’s just a street sign. And one that I shot last spring. Still, I am one of the disappointed Democrats. I could write a post or three...
Bang The Drum

Bang The Drum

Back at the end of June, I took a trip with JB & McQueen to the town where we grew up and became friends. We pulled up to the high school and immediately noticed that the school had changed dramatically since our last visit in 2003. As on that trip, we found an...

High Contrast

I’m playing around with a set of new tools; some filters that I’m not sure I’m going to keep playing with. This image was a keeper from a recent edit session. This was shot back in March during the monumental photowalk organized by Scott Jarvie....

Hi! So. Busy times, travel and projects. Jacked up rhythm and about 10 days of migraine. Phone calls were especially rough, certain frequencies punching through my skull with enough force to make me recoil away from the phone while mashing the volume down button while...

Wires Crossed, Lost

Driving back to Salt Lake City after a half day up north with old friends I caught this view from the passenger seat. It’s not perfect, but if you listen to the first verse of “The Song is Over”, that captures the mood of leaving a changing hometown,...

Nels Cline with Wilco at Red Butte

This one just had to be black and white because it reminded me of high ISO, super grainy film from back in my print publishing days. Back then, I shot with a Canon Elan and I thought I had hit the jackpot in the camera department. Scanning 3200 ISO film added more...

I think I’ve hit a series of particularly difficult personal hurdles. I’m a say-yes-to-everything person. The problem is that I tend to say yes because I’m hopeful that I can learn something new, stretch myself and work on a project that sounds cool....
Trailside General Store

Trailside General Store

This is a metaphor for so many towns across the U.S. This one is personal. This convenience store has been boarded up for a long time. The last time McQueen, Haden Church and I drove through town nine years ago, it was boarded up. This store was one of the places...
