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”
Down in the British Virgin Islands, there is this little hut called the Soggy Dollar and will serve a variety of things but their only requirement is that it has to be paid with cash. Which is funny because in order to get to the beach you must jump from your boat and swim to shore due to the way the beach/sand and all of that other confusing things are in this part of the world.
So of course I was interested, then I was even more delighted when I came upon these palm trees and hammock, I spent quite a bit time in there as I had just finished a 10 mile Hike.
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.
My First Conceptual Piece from a while back… have progressed since then, but at times its always nice to see where we started…
Here in Seattle Washington it is not often that we have clouds, Let me finish…
Clouds that are interesting and dramatic!
Yes, we have clouds, often, it is very frustrating since I believe I have that seasonal affected disorder and the sun brings me Joy.
Back to my point. Taking photos in Seattle outside is difficult, cause either you have absolutely No Clouds or so much cloud coverage there is nothing to take a pic of that incorporates a cool sky,and let’s be honest, we all love a cool dramatic sky.
So on this particular evening it was fun because Finally, a Cool Sky!
Some of the time people think that the cause of their problems are at the fault of others around them, their wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, kids, friends, family, let’s be honest the list could go on forever
But what if the fault of the issue, or problem or whatever is actually that of the view.
You can’t see the big picture, something is obstructing its view. Perhaps if you find that obstruction you find the root of the issue and Bam crisis solved!
Cait workin it Thug Style
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-
I often overlook the special aroma that you feel at a B&B and tend to just jump straight to the idea of a hotel/motel typical places of stay on travels and other various vacations.
I’m going to start broadening my horizons looking for more cozier options, more ma and pop type of places.
Sure it may be more costlier but you have a sense that A: your doing some good with your money for the family, B: the Atmosphere at these types of places you can’t find in a hotel and C: the Service is usually spectacular, because, well, they actually care about your stay as opposed to a 15 yr old bell hop whom throws your luggage around like a football.
All to conclude, B&B’s are cool and so are the more rustic options out there as opposed to your typical “Ramada Inn”.
Hang on tight while we grab the next page
