Got this Idea after imagining what a never ending beach would look like…. then of course you gotta have a subject and interest… and lastly, must have “Vanilla-Like Skies”
There’s nothing more awkward than seeing a tunnel-like valley as this and then a person pops up staring at you while your staring at them with a huge camera.
Its like ahhh ok, just walk on through its ok, I’ll wait, seriously, I’ll wait, I don’t want to take your picture, the brick is cool, see-look, thats why I’m taking a picture, I’m honestly not trying to be intrusive.
Yes, these are the thoughts that go through my head when these awkward moments happen.
I am back in NY for the moment. Soon to be traveling to San Fran, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Corpus Christi, and others around and abouts.
A moment of color changed form within side the house again and I just knew the sky was probably crazy and to my, much pleasure it was!It was gorgeous.The sky was so Red that in post processing I had to die down the saturation so the image wouldn’t be what we call “blown out”…
I was Happy : )

Sometimes I’ll be watching a movie, or editing pictures then all of a sudden the light changes on the carpet or floor or walls and I’m like, “AH, I bet there’s an Awesome Sunset Outside!!”
And I go running towards the window and sure enough, BAM, there it is in all its glory, showing off all its colors, textures, light, rays, and emotions.At times I can’t help but think, man do we have an awesome God to create such beautiful moments.
I love tonal range, the way an image or a scene can have such a wide tonal range and how our eyes are able to capture every last bit of it! Camera’s don’t even come close to being able to capture exactly what we see on a certain sunset, scene or moment and that is the struggle that we photographers have in trying to show exactly what we see that makes post-processing such a challenge. Thus its not the camera you hold that makes the difference its how you use it. : )
I took Many Photos the night of the Fourth of July in 2012 that afterwards I had an idea to put them all together on to one image in photoshop to show family members and others Every Firework I saw on the Fourth of July.
It turned out pretty cool I think, and I hope you guys think so too-
Imagine with me… A hammock… A Beach… A Cold Bevarage… Some Pretty people waving big leaves to cool you down… Some amazing “beach” music like Bob Marley… and lastly some calming clatter in and about people laughing and joking around. Now aren’t you relaxed???
Sometimes When a day has been going not as I have planned. Sometimes I just look up and watch a plane sore through the air and imagine what it would be like to be on that plane and go down to a tropical paradise. Forget work, forget responsibilities and just go! Worry about the rest later. For some reason this helps and I continue in my work, continue in my responsibilities but with a skip in my step. At least it’ll have a little more skip than it did 10 minutes ago without my daydream.
This was taken on St. John Island on a remote beach where you can reach only by hiking or swimming to it from your boat. They would have hammocks all through out for anyone to use. Let me just say I used it often… maybe without the pretty people waving big leaves to cool me down but it was still nice without the leaves.
I can still hear my dad say “Jim, I’ll bring the sand-toys!” ha, heck he still says it today as we go to the beach as a family. Although my years of playing independently in the sand to make a castle that even the fantasy world would be ‘wow-ed’ at are over, the idea still remains the same. I love seeing the innocence in kids as they play in sand and dreaming of a world they think is so completely real and all around them. That anything is possible. When do we start thinking that our dreams are only dreams and can never be reality? Is it that awful stage of puberty? the growing into a negative frame of mind? I believe we can hold on to the dreams of our childhood, I mean why not? if you want to be an astronaut, be one. Want to be an artist? be one. Want to be a multi-millionaire and sip milkshakes all day? Do it. Why not? what holds us back? the Fear of The Unknowing. Abolish the fear and embrace Freedom. That’s simply what kids do they don’t have the fear thus all they have then is freedom (even though parents try to take a Lot of it away), to do and to act more organically than we can ever dream! Let the dreams of your heart rain down on your conscious and abolish your fear. It helps in every act of life. Of course I guess some fear is good. That starts a whole new topic so I will just stop here.
Sometimes even I find myself lost in my own thoughts. Usually the thoughts are of crazy-unrealistic or impossible things like why is the sky blue and space dark/black. I’m sure there is a logical answer that makes perfect sense to those questions, but then with those answers will form more “why?” questions and then before you know it everything we see, touch, and feel is a complete mystery. Take this boy for instance, I’m sure his thoughts are of wild and estranged things that we adults can probably form logical reason for, but his sought after wonder will never be satisfied (and it never should). We may continue to tell him answers to how we feel but he will have his own thoughts and resolutions to his own mysteries whether we try to solve them or not
