Road Trippin'

I consider myself fortunate to be centrally located and surrounded by hundreds of miles of dynamic geologic land forms, where new discoveries are a mere road trip away.  Each adventure becomes a muse and a catalyst for my next set of photographic expressions, prose and cherished memories.   
The photography serves as the documentation while the writing helps to define and express the emotive. Each road trip becomes a complete love affair. Affair being an apt word as the landscape and nature of a road trip opens up the freedom to dip your toes in then leave.

Falling For The Desert Color

“Or maybe spring is the season of love and fall the season of mad lust.
 Spring for flirting but fall for the untamed delicious wild thing.” 
― Elizabeth Cohen

“Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness--that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.” 
― Jane Austen

“Every now and then one paints a picture that seems to have opened a door and serves as a stepping stone to other things.” 
― Pablo Picasso

Before I was a photographer, I was a painter. Photography changed everything. The joy I felt within the creative processes of planning and executing a painting, I've also found in photography. I still compose my images as though they were to be painted.

I still find that beautiful, creative satisfaction as I explore in and out of my own photographic comfort zones. I love experimenting with different genres and with light, color, lenses and post process. Anything that brings me closer to communicating the mood of a landscape. I want to always be excited and motivated to experiment in finding that connection.
