This is where my personal projects are born, as well as behind the scenes perspectives of the photo shoots I've done.

New Color Photographs Available for Order as Prints

Hello kiddos.

The holidays are upon us. I’ve seem to have skipped a couple of these blog posts during that time but I’ll tell you what I’ve been up to.

I quit smoking cigarettes (4 weeks and 5 days). The goal of improving my vitality is for the body as much as for the mind. It’s been nothing but a clean lifestyle since November 3rd and improvements in both cognition and stamina have been noted. I still love my cocktails, wine and beer though. No plans to change any of that any time soon.

There’s been a lot of travel since the end of October, which reminds me of the purpose for writing this entry. Less than a week ago, I posted on Facebook a message about new work; specifically there had been a question about the uncertainty of many photos made throughout the years from travel. They had been mostly for fun but after seeing thousands of images stored on a hard drive with no life beyond one and zero, decided to spend a bit more time, fleshing out the other things I saw in the photo until the real vision began to emerge.

So here’s the result. If you like how these have been coming out then let me know! There will be two ways of acquiring these photos:

1) Right here from my site.
2) You can visit Jewels in the French Quarter of New Orleans at 905 Decatur Street.

Thanks for reading.
