Between weddings over the great plains

I was editing a wedding on my way back from Denver having shot another wedding, and the light was perfect. We left at 5pm and by 7pm it was dark, which made for interesting lighting conditions with a constantly-changing sky. I could tell the lady next to me wanted to ask why I was taking so many photos out the window, but she probably got that I’m kind of into photography by all of the wedding photos on my laptop. They went neglected for the first 90 minutes of the flight.

Pharmed love

Condensation after rain on a humid evening in August helped to obscure the identities of these two lovebirds as they forged more than a doctor-patient relationship on the advertising boards of a nameless Rx in downtown Chicago. Of course it was a major chain with drugs and overpriced sodas.

Partway through the workday

I learned today that window-cleaning is considered the most dangerous job (Vicar is the safest)┬áin the UK. That’s saying something considering they employ armed forces.

Everything seemed to shift and stay the same.

I’ve forgotten everything I’ve ever said

I’ve come to accept that a majority of people I come into contact with are going to tell me the same stories over and again. Or they’re going to repeat the structures of how they will tell me these stories. Exasperation, consternation, humor, reconciliation, conclusion. Wash, rinse, repeat. I’m finding myself less interested in sharing for fear of falling into ruts of this variety. The more you put the words in your mind into some kind of space to be digested, the more aware you become of the taste of the meal. If not to the right temperature, never serve.

Road to the back

I’m really rusty having not made a landscape or anything that resembles something I’ve previously posted in more than a month. This was a road to the back side of a farm in South Africa.

The urban valley

Sometimes I hang on to my images for a while before making them. It’s not that I don’t want to post them immediately, it’s just that I’m not sure if I’ll feel the same way about the moment later on. With some images you get the sense that you might need to spend a few hours on them to coax them into existence. With others, like this one, you take 10 minutes. It’s tarnished, I shot it at 1/10th hand-held. It still says something to me. Sometimes the city glows in a way that lifts you up.

The lobbyists

They look like people. They talk like people. They’re likely statues propped up by whoever owns the key to the door. Too big to be human. You’re on the outside.
