Cades Cove

Cades Cove

“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.” ― John Muir This John Muir quotes pretty much sums up the last...
Giving Up

Giving Up

It’s August in Tennessee which usually means unbearable heat and humidity but Mother Nature has seen fit to give us a break for a bit. Today was great weather so I decided to head down to Chattanooga for a little bit of exploring. It was not great photo weather...
Finding Style

Finding Style

Recently, I’ve been rethinking my photography. What do I like to shoot? How do I like to shoot? How do I want to edit? Are just a few of the questions I’ve been rolling around. I’ve only shot a handful of times all year because I was just not in the...
Ozone Falls

Ozone Falls

This last week I had to say goodbye to my sweet dog. It has been a very hard week to say the least. I decided I needed to get out and clear my head a bit so I found a waterfall I had not been too and headed out.  Ozone Falls is about two hours East of Nashville off of...

Small Waterfalls on the Natchez

Small Waterfalls on the Natchez

This weekend I went waterfall hunting down the Natchez Trace. Even though we had rain recently the waterfalls were running low. It was low enough to climb over and get a few different angles. My goal is to hit as many waterfalls in the Middle Tennessee area as...
My Day Bag

My Day Bag

I love the what’s in my bag posts. I find it a clever way to find new bags, new configurations, or interesting items to carry. What a person chooses to carry is very revealing about them.  So here is my daily bag. Olympus EM5mkii Olympus 12-40mm 2.8 PRO Olympus...
Mystical Arts of Tibet

Mystical Arts of Tibet

This weekend the Mystical Arts of Tibet group has been in Nashville, TN working on a Sand Mandala painting. I went to the opening ceremony to watch them bless the space and start chalking the outlines. It was a fascinating process to watch the detail that goes into...
