We are in for it, this happy lil bug rolled over all by himself today - next stop: quarantine and crawling?? Currently 🖤ing: overalls, hooting at his bookshelf, grabbing his toes, and making out with Sophie the giraffe. 🦒
"My Virtual Space"⠀
The game has changed. Most of us are now connected into the Matrix, The Oasis, where you can create your own world. You are who you write yourself to be. You can be anyone. But who are you in real life, does your digital character reflect your actual character. Are you creating a lie, believing it, and turning into that lie which in turns becomes the truth of who you become. Time doesn't stop, it doesn't speed up and it doesn't slow down, so don't live in your virtual space and waste your life away in front of a screen. Go out and live a bit, see the beautiful things life has to offer. If you're always looking down at your screen you'll only see the stars when they fall like rain. ⠀
This picture represents My Virtual Space, Its a world Ive created, but also a world I live in. Ive been very conscious in my photography to represent who I am, what I do, my passions and what i believe in when living in the real world. The reason this picture specifically is My Virtual Space is because ive been cooped up at home, due to Covid and Chaos the last 4 months Ive had to go through my hard drive for astro photos to edit that I havent yet, to keep me from going insane of not being able to go out and shoot the stars. 99% of my images are Single shot pictures, which mean I take 1 image, edit it as a whole, and its done. This one is different. Its 2 10 shot Panoramas taken at different times and blended together. It was always the goal to Blend these 20 images together to make this photograph before I ever went out shooting. Nice to know i could finally get around to putting it together.⠀

Now for something completely different! I would like to share the work of an artist who has inspired me quite a bit over the years. These works were created by Albert Bierstadt from 1864-1887. Incredible artistic depictions of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Yosemite and one of my personal favorites the Farallon Islands off the coast of San Francisco (image 2). I have had the pleasure of seeing his work in person at the DeYoung Museum. If you get a chance to in the future I highly recommend it! You can truly feel the passion this man had through his brush strokes and brilliant creativity.
The Aletsch glacier at a different view. This place never stops to amaze
a calm morning in #amsterdam ✨
Got up at 7am to catch some empty streets and smooth water in beautiful sun ☀️
Keeping busy in isolation involves digging deep into the hard drives and getting ps creative with old raws, re-exploring all the places I have had the pleasure of visiting mostly while guiding photo workshops, and some simply just traveling and shooting what I want, when I want... Cannot wait to be out in it once again.

//#CreatingSharedValue// Getting in a workout is always a crucial part of our wellness routine, no matter what is happening around. Although we cannot get close to our friends, we can still care about them through words and actions.
Don’t hesitate to spread love and give strength to your beloved ones in the fight against the epidemic. #theartisanalmovement #lovewithoutboarders
Golden hour in the San Juan mountains.
Expansive panes of glass have been added to the rear of this Melbourne house to allow for uncompromised views of the pond and landscaped garden, which has been finished with black-painted brick walls and trellis panels.
Beyond the black facade of the 1990s townhouse are a series of simple, white-painted living spaces designed by @winterarchitecture. Click the link in bio to take a look around.

I said goodbye to my grandmother earlier this summer. It was really dang hard. She had this gentle, reassuring presence that, when combined with her sass, made for an incredible motherly figure. I didn’t quite understand the impact she had on my life until I saw the crowd at the funeral: she made such a difference in the lives of so many, including the man pictured above. This picture of my grandfather says so much to me, though I’m not quite sure what it is. Maybe it sums up his current voyage into life without his partner of 60 something years. Maybe it speaks to his quiet strength. Or maybe it speaks to his penchant for keeping the yard free of even the smallest errant leaf or stick? Either way, I love the photo and him a whole bunch.
Is there a platform where you share and exhibit your photos besides Instagram? I recently opened an account at @1x - 1x.com and sharing my photos there. It is a really high-quality platform, and many pro photographers out there. You can share your photos on the @1x, review the work of photographers from around the world to improve your skills. They also have a Japanese version @1x_japan
Check it out! 😍 @1x @1x_japan
