i would just like to show off this photo because not only does it show off my technical skill, but it also shows that i’m not a complete idiot when it comes to using a medium format camera and that i’m perfectly capable of ratcheting a ten pound camera to a twelve foot ladder and then photographing a fantastic image.

arteries will always hold a special place in my heart


Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m the orange peel
You don’t remember
But I was once part of your orange
I’m the peel that you left on the floor
You took the good part and walked out the door
And I hate you for that
I hate you for that

I’m the orange peel

When the flood waters reach where I lay
French Broad River will float me away
And I hate you for that
I hate you for that

I’m the orange peel


So I heard it’s Earth Day
