Many people love camping.

Especially during Spring and Summer.

Except for uncoordinated,…

mosquito attracting…


with terrible allergies…

like me.

We prefer the air conditioned,..

insect free…

comfort of the great indoors. 😊


that didn’t stop me from visiting the camping isle at my local Walmart.

They had emergency ponchos…




and so much more…

I couldn’t take it all home. Nor did I want to, but a particular item caught my eye. I quickly purchased it and brought it home. After wrestling with it for awhile, I tried to lay it out in just the right position.  Despite using different sources of light, nothing felt as though it would offer anything unusually captivating.

Then, I realized that I had to take a completely different approach to shooting this particular material than the popular one used to shoot reflective surfaces like water.

I layered the image, wanting to evoke a feeling of mystery as well as movement.

The end result was quite striking!

Bright cerulean blues ended in fiery tendril like tips, then faded into into surrounding darkness.

Be on the lookout for more photos from this series as well as it’s release date.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Remember to always live life creatively!

BIRTH OF THE EXTREME SELFIE SERIES: Strange Self Portraits That Make You Think About Time, Space and The Human Race

Worlds within my world Selfie #1 Color


The atmosphere bubbles, gently collecting store aisles. Each mini world rises to the surface waiting to explode. In the midst of this otherworldly event, a selfie is taken. I know what you’re thinking, but you had to be there.

I decided to interrupt my regularly scheduled program of digital photographic abstraction to inject a bit of surrealism into the mix. I don’t normally take selfies, but in this age of ever present digital self absorption I had to indulge. Strangely enough, the end result was about everything but me. What does this photo remind you of?  What does it mean to you?
