Locked inside my mind, I often overlook the abundance of profound patterns weaving their way through my environment and my experiences.

Photography pulls me out of my head so that I can deviate from all those predictable perspectives, I can re-frame familiar spaces into mysteries unexplored, I can expose these thin slices of eternity to others, changing how we perceive and interact with a bubbling reality teeming with ominous unknowns, flashes of deep dread and abundant awe—all tangled up and held together by connections once unseen.

Bob Ross knew: “Beauty is everywhere.”

Plus buying a photobook helps feed a starving artist who would rather play with photos than eat or sleep! 🙂

Silent Spaces

Tolland Abandoned Home - living room

 

Tolland Back of Abandoned Home

I took these at some abandoned houses in the Colorado Mountains.  There’s something fascinating to me about derelict buildings, these silent spaces where maybe children once giggled at the dinner table over a plate of uneaten carrots,  where perhaps a father or a mother wept alone in the shower over the loss of their own parents, where entire families once slept soundly beneath a vast canopy of timeless stars.

These silent spaces now an echo of lives lived, their home slowly retreating into the Earth.
