    Blue Too

    2021, you win. I am burnt out. The stressors of life are closing in like a vice, and escape seems more an impossibility than some far off thing that will come eventually. I am tapped out and in serious need of a break.

  • Up at Night

    Up at Night

    Ben Wurst, Jon Carr, and I made our way to the New Jersey Pinelands’ pygmy pine forest where we tried our best at making astrophotography on a clear, moonless night.

    Friday evening I hitched a ride with Jon Carr and we made our way to Great Bay Boulevard. The hope was twofold: 1) outside shot at a well timed break in the clouds for sunset ignition; and 2) with a segment of thunderstorms approaching from the west, lightning captures were on the table. While neither…

    Kylo Ren and The Dark Side of the Force

    The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. —Supreme Chancellor Palpatine What’s happening, Star Wars fans? For those of you yet to see The Force Awakens I promise this is a spoiler free post. Making this miniature photograph was a blast! But first let’s circle back…
