Ready for the Flood

Shot with a Canon t2i using a 50mm, f1.4 lensTranquil horizons melt under gray turmoil, and verdant lands stretch, yawning, to recharge under inclement rolls of curdled breath. Dusk silenced by the kettledrum calls of approaching fervor, the gasp of saffron light conducts leaves to open, legs to spread for the welcoming flood. Storms exact […]

In the Gray

iPhone 5 shotSmall things, lost in the deep blur of land and sea’s mourning. The haze of undying, burning off the gray of uncertain paths, revealing color and contrast where before there was only wandering without a hand to hold.

Passionate clutches carry bodies higher than […]

Convivial palaver and easy gregariousness course through dusty air, and heads turn studying lithe physiques, flirty smiles, raised eyebrows and searching glances.

Shot with a Canon t2i using a 50mm, f1.4 lensA gang of candles, crowded by small diligent hands, dim, crowded luminance dancing across walls, shadows flirt with joining night.

The Blur of Right and Wrong

Shot with a Canon t2i using a 50mm, f1.4 lensDiffuse signals bark for order, drawing lines to their colors and filtering progress carefully in measure, as if life were a genius recipe demanding exact quantities to impress flavor. Commands echo, trapped behind pressed eyelids swarming with thoughts of futures spun ahead, in sight but disallowed […]

Solid words, splashing into oceans as if concrete […]
