Vegan No. 1

There's a certain sense
of overwhelming irony
to the modern-day
vegans.

They must use non-GMO soap
gluten-free shampoo,
and fair-trade
toilet paper,

yet they'll shovel
just about any
toxic goo or illicit substance
into their body with little thought.

God forbid
they end up with bread
in their hair while
they fight emphysema at 40.

A Year on the Loaf

As some of you well know, I like to wander.  When I wander, I usually bring a camera.  Since moving up to Sugarloaf last November, I've taken far too many time-lapses, all with the intent of of some vague, eventual something.  This is the first something.  The idea occurred to me this past Fall, while considering that we'd been up here for almost a year, "I'll put some of my favorites together and finish/upload it on the day we moved in."  It seemed a reasonable goal, but some Final Cut debacles, along with a case of extreme restlessness, proved otherwise.  But finally, a month and a half late, here it is!  All footage in the video was shot by myself, and all within 5 minutes of our home.  As always, click through to Vimeo to watch the video in 1080p high-definition.  The song is "Wildflower Honey" by Steep Ravine.  Enjoy!

"Current"

Hey folks!  If you've been on the site in the past day or two, you may have noticed a new section, aptly titled, "Current."   The idea is quite simple; this section will house a small selection of photographs from one of my recent adventures.  The photos do not represent finished products, collections, or portfolios, and are often not edited at all.  Instead, they provide an unfiltered look into my process and my eye. 

The first featured batch comes from the Denver Botanic Gardens.  Strangely, I've seen my fair share of lily pads, but their pond is one of the best in terms of quantity and quality.  It's a beautifully curated garden if there's such a thing.  Though I'd visited the gardens once before, I found myself utterly amazed by the deep, pure, clean black of the pond's water.  It provides perfect backdrop to photograph the incredible variety of shapes and colors.  You'll see what I mean.  Enjoy and keep posted for the next round!
