Thoughts on 2019

As I look back on the year 2018 it was pretty much of a bust for me creatively. I seemed to struggle with everything project I approached…nothing seemed to thrill me. Not even still life photography that had proven to be a successful path for me in 2017. As my frustration kept growing I decided… Continue Reading


Seed Head

This past Sunday morning I was doing some light weeding and replanting in my allotment. At the back end of my space there’s a clump of weeds and grasses come up from a pile of abandoned hay. As I used my hoe to take out this clump I noticed the lovely seed heads on the grasses.… Continue Reading
