mail pouch tobacco

On my way up to Pittsburgh, I passed this barn and thought, "I need to stop for a quick picture." I deliberated for more than 30 seconds, and it was gone. On the return trip, I made the snap call. I tried to apply the Sunny f/16 Rule across the Pennsylvania Turnpike. It left me a bit underexposed, so I adjusted accordingly. Hopefully next time, I can get a wide-angle shot.

25 September 2010


I've been to a few so-called "beer pubs" in my day. Some of them have quite impressive lists. Ones that shall remain nameless that don't live up to the hype. Others that do, like Stubbie's in Gainesville. Due to interesting ABC laws in Pennsylvania, I went to a different breed last weekend for my cousin's bachelor party. D's Six Pax & Dogz in Sunnyvale, just outside of Pittsburgh. Great selection, and if we so chose, we'd've been able to take a six-pack to go. I'll never understand it.

summer grillin'

The temps are turning cooler. Our 2010 summer was marked by plenty of Florida-like days filled with sunshine. On days where it dips into the 80s in the shade, it's just perfect for sitting on the patio and catching up with friends over a mojo pork sandwich and some grilled corn on the cob.

attempting to sell

On Friday afternoon, I dropped off these 12 photographs at A Show of Hands in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia. Mpix printed them on metallic photo paper. They are mounted to acid-free foam core and matted. This is my first foray into sales. I'm excited for the opportunity to share my work in a new way: the way most photographers of old had to!

11 September 2010

nine years later

Yesterday, I heard a tribute to September 11 on a local morning show. Nine years later, I still get chills when I see or hear actual media from that day. I'd just gotten back from a morning run. I was stretching and watching the morning news when I saw the second plane hit. Thankfully, no one I knew was lost or injured. May God continue to watch over those who lost loved ones on that dark day.
