Kevin and I had the opportunity to go with Rad Drew and Sally Meyer Wolf on one of their workshops to Gary and shoot abandon buildings. It was pretty interesting. The sheer size of the structures in their dilapidated state was very unsettling. There was a lot of beauty and geometry in the decay. There was history. Many stories. Both long ago and recent. Violence. Violent decay. Huge pieces of man made pulled back to nature. Beneath your feet. Above your head and all around. Transitory. No permanence. Makes you question all kind of things. Leaving behind. Moving forward. Priority. Evolution. Resolution. It was overwhelming yet addicting.

there are pictures all around us. and to capture them is like magic and a little bit of science. a moment in time….still. i have been interested in photography since i was a child and have been shooting for many years now. i am a visual person, more an artist than a photographer, but am able to integrate both. i think i have an eye for composition and like to manipulate the images. i am not a purist. enjoy my work. i also love writing and hope to begin to share more of that here.
