    A warm wind blows, circling around me. The funnel grows closer, but the buildings are torn further away. The only things that remain are me, a field and the gales of rage. I used PhotoChrome and typed in the word to search. I downloaded the color map and one of the images used. The images […]

  • Motivational Poster!

    “They’re not steep when you get to the top” my friend kept telling me as we climbed up a hill in Shenandoah. I was exhausted, having woken up at 5 am just to make the sunrise. We were almost at the top and finally I looked out from the hill and saw the valley in […]

I saw an old copy of Birdemic: Shock and Terror, one of my favorite movies of all time! An absolute masterpiece with such original ideas and effects far ahead of […]

  • Week 1 Photoreflection

    This is my favorite photo I took for the 15 Minute Photo Gallery. It was taken at Chickahominy Bridge in Williamsburg, Virginia at 8:03 am. One of the photos was required to have framing around a center image, with the framing blurred out. This matches that description perfectly. The cold, industrial-looking steel railings are straight […]
