Reflection May 18, 2009

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately…so much to consider and decide.

So many choices…so overwhelming.

I believe everything will work out.

Somehow it always does!

The Monsters In My Closet April 15, 2009

More funky statues from the Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ.  These little monsters don’t scare me.  I think they all have character.  I especially love the toothy grin on the last one!

I love the depth of field I got on these little creatures of metal!


Rise Toward the Heavens April 2, 2009

I feel within me that future life. I am like a forest that has been razed; the new shoots are stronger and brighter. I shall most certainly rise toward the heavens.

Silver King March 26, 2009

And nothing can we call our own but death

And that small model of the barren earth

Which serves as paste and cover to our bones.

For God’s sake, let us sit upon the ground

And tell sad stories of the death of kings.

~William Shakespeare

I hope you all don’t mind my sculpture posts in between me working on my recent portrait session and wedding edits.  I’ve been saving a lot of them for this time so I can continue to blog during this busy period. I have more to share and a few more photos from Wilmington.

I’m really fascinated by the unqiue sculptures at this sculpture park and I tried to photograph them in a more intimate or interested way then just walking up to each one and snapping a shot of them.  On some I accomplished my vision on other it fell short so I will continute to edit them and share them trough time and I’d like to make a trip back there again soon…because the 3rd time is the charm…now I know what I want all of the photos I take there to look like.

Tomorrow afternoon I head to North Carolina for the night and then Saturday morning it’s off to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to photograph the wedding of one of my oldest friends, Michelle, from grammar school.  I wish for no rain so we can do the portraits outdoors.

An Untroubled Retreat March 25, 2009

Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.  ~Marcus Aurelius
