Seeking Beauty by William Henry Davies

“…As long as I love Beauty I am young,

Am young or old as I love more or less;

When Beauty is not heeded or seems stale,

My life’s a cheat, let Death end my distress.”


unpremeditated art



‘birds’ – Port Townsend, WA

Hail to thee, blithe spirit!
Bird thou never wert,
That from Heaven, or near it,
Pourest thy full heart
In profuse strains of unpremeditated art.
Percy Bysshe Shelley

I have been super lame about posting on Mondays,  a tradition I attempted to start on the blog long ago (thanks Chloe for reminding me).  I’m going to make another attempt at being more faithful about sharing random photographs I make while walking around.  This one is dedicated to lovers of the Econoline.  Cheers.



These are some recent ads I completed with the good folks at  They really brought in a great team – Heidi Nymark did the hair and makeup and Nancy Bue led in the Art Direction.  The entire creative team were great to collaborate with. It was super fun and just a seamless production.

the city i live in


An image I made of downtown Seattle,  the city I now call home.

I just returned from working in Southern California.  It was my first trip back since moving here a year ago.  While I had a great time visiting friends,  soaking up some sun,  making pics, and unwinding on the beach,  it’s good to be back here.

This is a sweet town.  LA,  I’ll see you again next month.

Another Monday,  another personal image.  This one comes from a recent trip to the San Juan Islands. I enjoy finding landscapes and then waiting for a subject to interact with my frame.

Monday is random picture day,  so here’s a frame that I thought I’d share.  Taken in the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

I think this blog needs to establish some traditions.  So from this day forward,  I will post a random image I’ve made from my personal work on Mondays.

I’m kicking off with two Nacho Libres walking across the street to a Tower Records that was going of out business.
