Sleeping Bears National Lakeshore

Reflections during a break

Escape from Paradise

i came back to the bay area around 1230am and having already adjusted to EST, it was really 3330am. Because i took a decent nap on the plane, i didnt end up going to sleep until close to 3am PST. regardless, i got up at about 630am, pretty much convincing myself that i wanted to leave today. didn't [...]

Creative Process and Ego

Trial Run

I like earning views like this. 98% of the journey isn't like the summit. But the wisdom earned through suffering isn't unlike mountain hiking. #mtrainier ...

Weather is crap to visit a national park and get pretty pictures. Still, the feeling of awe and fear doesn't need good weather. #olympicnationalpark ...

My journey hasn't been all about goregous landscapes. The intimacy and previlige of being invited into stranger's homes to photograph and hear their spiritual stories has been another dream realized. On a related note, I finally figured out the juicest external manifestation of the photographic narrative. ...

I looking bitter because I am asking myself what am I going to do to help save the environment. As I was hiking this trail, i had an idea where pro photographers sell thier landscape images and the proceeds would get to cause to help save the our environment.

I don't usually cuss that much but being out of breathe while I hustled to the summit may have something to do with it. #mtellinor ...

I wasn't my intention to chase beautiful vistas and intense adventures. Still the root of the chase is no different than the chase for money and security. Grateful as I am for living in abundance, the call of service beckons. ...
