In your head.

You see it a little differently. And sometimes it comes out just that way.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater near Bear Run, in rural Pennsylvania, is a Mid-Century Modern architectural marvel that appears to hover over a 30-foot waterfall.

I went for some design inspiration for my house, and left blown away by the shadows and the leaves and a certain kind of light.

I get a few e-mails each month from folks all over the place, which is very flattering. (Thanks for looking!) Often, I’m asked what camera I use. The best camera is the one you have with you, which is probably an iPhone/Android. For everything else, there’s…Mastercard?

(Fuji X100 is highly recommended for travel).

Here are some snaps that I’ve shot over the the past 6 months; all taken with an iPhone.

One thing I’d like to divorce myself of in 2015, to the extent that it’s possible, is the idea there is too little time for art. Call it a belated resolution.

Take more photos. Take more chances.

Sturgill Simpson on the track.

I couldn’t come up with a catchy title, and when one came to me, it started with a conjunction.  However, despite what many have been taught, beginning a sentence with a conjunction isn’t unsuitable. Because, according to the major style guides (the internet), doing so is fine.

So there.

And here we go…

With Plastic Bertrand on the track.

An impeding storm on the shores of Virginia Beach provided an interesting backdrop for these, shot on my travel rangefinder. James Blake on the soundtrack.

The changing light at San Francisco is none of your East Coast light
none of your pearly light of Paris
The light of San Francisco is a sea light an island light
And the light of fog blanketing the hills drifting in at night through the Golden Gate
to lie on the city at dawn And then the halcyon late mornings after the fog burns off
and the sun paints white houses with the sea light of Greece
with sharp clean shadows making the town look like it had just been painted
But the wind comes up at four o’clock sweeping the hills
And then the veil of light of early evening
And then another scrim when the new night fog floats in
And in that vale of light the city drifts anchorless upon the ocean
– Lawrence Ferlinghetti
