..shot with my digital camera at 640x480...on a cab ride home one night...my camera is meant for photo not video hence the low resolution...but it worked out...little jumpy and has a bit of art school 'feel' but it's my first attempt at video...sad/creepy music from the band stars..

walking around the seattle center again...what can i say i am a creature of habit...happened upon this small japanese shrine and started shooting the enclosed bell...somewhat of a clausterphobic shot but i was trying to shoot the engraving on the bell...yay dragons....
video follows is from the swedish band logh...super mellow and i dig the faded/blacked out technique used in the video..

macro shot of a dried flower...i love how the 'star' part of the flower is creeping out...almost insect like...ewww buggs...squish squish...
converted image to infrared black and white...flipped image horizontally and painted out the third flower...ran a sensia filter to give the flower an old time feel as if you found this image in an old nature journal....

Walking around the Seattle Center, early spring. Stumbled upon this kids ride that reminded me of those old Donald Duck cartoons, that I watched as a kid. I loved Donald Duck and his crazy antics, and when i was younger i was able to mimic his quack...i could entertain myself hours...quacking it up....
A great deal of work went into this image using a variety of techniques. Multiple Photoshop filters, and some digital painting. Very pleased with the final dreamy result.

Walking along the beach one day, close to where i live, stumbled upon two beach forts during low tide. I went back the following day, but the ocean had claimed them for her own. Sniff, Sniff. I dig the haphazard view of this shot and the horizon in the distance.
I had to remove a sea gull and a ship that took away from the lonesome fort. Faux holga filer, cross processing filter, applied the image a couple of times to create greater colour depth....
Title taken from Beck, music video follows..

Out for a stroll one day near the Space needle, early spring, TULIPS in full effect. Single raw shot, so i could bring out greater detail/saturation in Photoshop. Small amount of cropping to remove the concrete sidewalk and tulip stems to give the shot a more 'artsy' feel. I seem to be enamored these days with the faux holga filter, I know, some of my work looks a little too processed but in this case i think the effect worked quite well..
The title comes from my favorite Cure song, Charlotte Sometimes...video follows..

Sur la route, or on the road, obviously or maybe not so obvious, the title comes from a novel by Jack Kerouac. I love Jack, my favorite work being The Dharma Bums, check it out, if your looking for a buddhist/beat read. Such a shame he could never kick the habit of alcohol, and the 'drink' ultimately killed him in the end.
Super lucky with this shot, driving with a friend last August, me in the passenger seat snapping away. The car is actually facing away, ie what your seeing is the tail lights of the car and not the head lights...

This is my favorite work to date....it was shot the same time vigilante was shot...scroll down if your bored...it also made me realize that i might have a little 'something/something' in me, call it talent or a gift...
Converted image to black and white, and then applied an infrared filter a couple of times to bring out heavy contrasts of the straps and young trees...horizontal flip of the image to bring out greater depth and the 'cross' effect'...i then had to do a little painting through layers to bring back the larger tree slightly and far away wall...
..the title is taken from the band death from above 1979..i couldn't find a good version of going steady on the web, but this song fits the image/title as well.

On my way to work in the morning, I pass on by a string of street lights in front of key arena. At 3am Key Arena has a very quiet, lonely feel. Some what of a blurry image but I knew this image had potential.
First, I took a black brush and started painting out areas in the photo. The building in the background had to go, as well as the first street post. I then a ran a filter to remove noise due to shooting at 3am. I then applied a faux holga filter to 'shorten' up the image and create a little moodiness. I then painted out the sidewalk up to the short posts, and then adjusted curve levels to shorten up the light from the lamps.
Very happy with the image, has a great mood and a sense of being well lost....
