Nina and I

Nina and I

  We met when the leaves were turning, dropping off the vines. I had become a craggy vineyard clinging to trestles and stakes. She seemed familiar, the sweet stoic cabin I passed by each day.

Radical Photography

  I love the times when you catch me photographing you. We go on long walks, adventurous hikes in the woods. I pull out the Galaxy 6 and start snapping pics. The next thing I know the camera finds you in a pose. All of a sudden I see you stop and eat a fig, […]
