This is a very strange photo! It was taken with a very old camera--11 years old, and long exposure was used. As a result, the picture is very warped, but I like that.
This was a man walking away from me as I sat in a car. I took several pictures of him and then asked for permission to use them. I combined the photos to form a collection of this man walking away.

This was taken out my attic window during one of the last snows of the season. The only room in my apartment with heat is this tiny attic room, barely larger than a closet, so I would curl up in there
This was taken on the way to work. After I moved to Pittsburgh, I was pretty miserable with city life. But I keep finding these little pockets of beauty, and it makes me feel better--I'm not as far aw
This is a walkway covered in salt during a particularly sunny morning.
This is part of a study about light. It actually wasn't supposed to be sensual or anything at all; it was kind of a whim, and it really worked out. I think it's quite disturbing, but interesting.
When I first saw this, I thought it was rather dark, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. This was taken behind a curtain in a series of light-texture photo shoots.
This is the fan (with teapot weight!) at my great-aunt's house. She lives in the middle of nowhere in rural Delaware, and her home is filled with these hokey, cute, adorable, strange, and beautiful ar
On the way back from the funeral, we stopped by a farmer's market. This is a luxury we don't have where I live now! I couldn't afford anything, though, but the pictures were free. :)

These are wires on the way to the funeral. I'm fascinated with wires. They're so beautiful!
This is an UNALTERED photograph using an eleven-year-old camera and long exposure.

This is my cat, Lucy. I love her so much. I really lucked into this shot! A lot of people look at this and see something ferocious, but to me, it looks like she's singing.
I took this photo of a man working at a roadside diner. I didn't want him to know because he'd stiffen or change. Then I asked for his permission to take some more, intending to use the first shot. He
I've been pretty miserable since I moved to the city. But as I was walking to work one morning, I saw this amazing patch of flowers, thorns, and leaves. It was beautiful.

This was taken the day of my great-uncle's funeral. His clothes were still on the clothesline. After I took the picture, I took the clothes down before my great-aunt noticed.
My brother's cabin located in "Scab Holler". Things haven't changed much in this part of the country in last hundred years.
Nothing say's Americana better than a old weathered barn.
I was hiking through the Swiss Alps, when I was brought in by a cheese maker and her husband for food and a drink. I took a photo of them in memory for the hospitality they gave me.
