I’m back. I apologize for my lengthy and unannounced sabbatical, but after a long hard summer I’m back.

My mom passed away May 21st and I’ve been picking my self back up over the last few months. After losing her, I didn’t feel like shooting at all – I didn’t feel like doing much of anything at all, really. And I didn’t  pick up a camera for a couple of months because it just didn’t feel right.

Mostly I’ve been sitting around feeling sad and a little sorry for myself, too. Eventually I went back to photographing what I know – my commute. Once I finally got around to picking up a camera to do that, it jump started me. And it made me remember that there’s so many amazing things to see, people to meet, food to eat and places to go in the world. As my 6th grade teacher Mr. Hardy used to say, “Life is short, so don’t go around feeling sorry for yourself.”

Looking at life through a camera has always been very joyful and calming for me. There’s order and beauty and – well, let’s just say that it’s good to be back posting new work. Thank you Mom.

photo notes
Most of these images look the way they do, right out of the camera. I enhance very little with Photoshop, aside from basic color and contrast adjustments. I underexpose slightly and shoot only for 15-20 minutes after sunset so that the highlights don’t blow out and the shadows don’t block up. This time I used a Nikon Z7 with the Nikon 24-70mm f4 Z lens.
