  • Jungle

    Not all that long ago, I found myself in a tropical jungle… Ok, maybe not…But the sun was hot, the air was humid and boy were the plants pretty…

  • Smile

    Perhaps it’s the combination of colors, or the layered brush strokes, or even remembering the spot where I took this quick shot, but for whatever reason, there’s just something about this texture that makes me smile…

  • Wood and nails

    Similar to a recent entry about sorting through unpublished photos, another theme struck me while sorting… Wood and/or nails.. Wood on the side of a century old barn.. ..a nail helping to cover a broken window… The grain of exterior of an old home tool shop.. ..on the door of an ancient windmill… .. and…

  • Farm Textures

    Inevitably, while exploring the farm, I can’t help but notice all the subtle colors and textures. Here are just a few that caught my eye:

  • The Farm

    Among my travels this year, have been several trips abroad to spend time with my friends and extended family. It’s been a wonderful treat to grow closer and revisit places I’d not seen in many years. One of the more relaxing side trips while traveling was to a friend’s farm for the holidays. As one…

  • Lucky number 7

  • Postcards from London, vol. 2; Textures

  • Mars, Vol. 4: Shadows

  • Mars, Vol. 2: Skin

  • Mission to Mars

    Yesterday, I went to Mars… I was out of milk…

  • The other day

    The other day I found myself out for a walk in the blustery North wind… and despite the bitter cold, I couldn’t resist taking a few shots:

  • Errands

    Even when I’m out running errands, I end up working. See? Working while trying to take a break isn’t really such a terrible thing, mind you… Do you have a hard time turning off your work brain, dear readers?

  • Today’s fresh textures

    After taking most of last week off, I thought I’d start the week off with a few fresh texture finds:

  • Textures from the snow

  • The Winter Coat

    Years ago, I found this coat. It is more of a piece of artwork than it is a wardrobe item: What keeps you warm this time of year, dear readers?
