My 5 Favorite Photos from 2020

It's my favorite post of the year! Wow... 2020, right?  What can be said... what needs to be said.  Frankly, I'm not even sure.  2020 has been a challenging year, and those challenges are no doubt going to follow us into 2021.  Even as we've been talking about "the new normal" for months now (feels like years), I still can't help but think that I don't want a new normal.  Even tonight as I was building out my travel map for the year, which I love doing by the way because I love maps, I couldn't help but mourn a little more the losses of 2020.  Even with all the struggles and challenges, I...

The City Lights of Salt Lake City, Utah

Holly and I just got back from a nice vacation in Utah and a funny thing happened while we were there.  I got to thinking about some of the pictures I took when I was there in 2019 and realized that I had never shared them! Whoopsie!  Well, one of the pictures from...

On the Farm Under the Stars

Over the last year or so I've been doing a lot of experimenting with different focal lengths when shooting the Milky Way.  I personally enjoy how the tighter focal lengths add drama to the sky, but as I noted last week however, they can be challenging to fit...

Hay Bales and the Milky Way

In last week's Picture of the Week, I mentioned having been in a creative slump and having no new ideas for images.  This week's image is a continuation on that theme actually.  Earlier in the summer I was just desperate for ideas (I kind of still am actually), but...

Chimney Tops Under the Milky Way

I give the people what they want! 🙂 This past week I was trying to decide what series to run next on Picture of the Week, so I did a little poll on Instagram.  Milky Way scenes edged out images from Charleston 60/40, so night scenes it is!  Not to worry though,...

That Terrible Place in the Hills – Brushy Mountain

If you've been following along with Picture of the Week for a REALLY long time, you may remember that time a friend and I did this goofy photo-narrative thing called Picture Me Loving You.  As part of that project we drove up and shot in Eastern State Penitentiary,...

The Roots – Fun with Infrared

Let's talk about seeing for a minute. The other day I had something kind of funny happen to me. I came downstairs for lunch a little later than normal and Holly had beaten me to the lunch making process.  We both generally eat salads for lunch and so she had left all...

Sights in the Gulf

Well Happy August everyone!  2021 is just cruising right along at life's normal break-neck speed. I was sitting around yesterday, having a mild pity-party for myself (I'm currently on quarantine after having been exposed to COVID by a friend of mine - both of us...

Camp Manitou 2021 – Isle of Palms

Can we take a minute to be thankful?  I need to take a minute to be thankful. Today is Holly and I's 18th wedding anniversary (it's an adult!), and as I was flipping through pictures this morning trying to find some hallmark images from the last 18 years, it occurred...
