En route to Montreal, Quebec to temporarily escape the fires of Fort Wayne–I was psyched to be in a different narrative…even if only for a week. The thing about this life is that these moments don’t last. But that’s not the greeting moment you want to have on the back of your mind with a… Continue reading Montreal
Cherry wine and sand. A bridge long enough to make you feel nervous, short enough to make you feel safe. Blue water, clear down to 19th century shipwrecks. Cool air that makes you think Canada with every local Yooper’s, “hello.” An eerie peace covers the forest and the water, harboring secrets of past battles and… Continue reading The Upper Peninsula
City of bridges. To everywhere, to nowhere. To fate, to choice. To continued paths and dead ends. To answers, to questions. To safety, to danger. To light days and dark nights. To abundance, to scarcity. To freedom, to captivity. To voluntary initiatives and compulsory actions. City of bridges. Which one to take.

IT’S CHRISTMAS WEEK! To celebrate, here’s some warm, cozy Christmas photos I captured. If you’re not pumped about Christmas coming up so soon, hopefully these do the trick!
It’s a process. I throw my glove in the snow. This picture is just not turning out right. I adjust the shutter speed, the aperture, the ISO, and carefully focus in on my subject. There! Fifty photos later I click through the photo previews, finally satisfied. I look up at what’s left of the sun.… Continue reading There’s Purpose in the Process
I love nature photography. The bison at Ouabache State Park in Wells County, Indiana gave me the perfect opportunity to practice my skills…and there’s even a brand new baby bison! I shot these in the evening with my Nikon DSLR 5200 using a portrait lens and 200mm lens. I love the hazy, dreamy effect of… Continue reading Bison
As a child I was only aware of two states–Indiana and Michigan. Yes, obviously I knew their were 50 states, and I could name them with their capitals for the elementary school memory tests, but in my world there was only two. I was born and raised in Indiana. My parents still live on property… Continue reading Where I Grew Up
