It Has Been Far Too Long

Note: This particular blog entry has been sitting under my drafts for the past two weeks, biding its time until the stars aligned and I could complete it. Because I’ve fallen so far behind that I now have 26 days … Continue reading

Levitation and Lightning

Hello again, people of the Internet! It’s looking more and more like these blogs are going to be weekly, or at least semi-weekly. I hope that you don’t mind; my days just seem to be too full for me to … Continue reading

Independence Day and Catching the Plague

Day 29 July 4th, 2014 Four pictures for the 4th of July! What better way is there to get in the holiday spirit? For my international readers, July 4, 1776 was the day that the U.S. Declaration of Independence from … Continue reading

Hi There Strangers!

Oh my. In my last blog, which I wrote a whopping ten days ago, I expressed the hope that I would be blogging more regularly now that I’m back home in Jacksonville. Unfortunately and quite obviously, I failed to do … Continue reading


Time for me to play catch-up once again, hopefully for the last time for a while! I am, as of today, home from my extended stay in Pennsylvania, somewhat regretfully. There have been a few resulting developments: 1. I now … Continue reading

Cruising the Town; Hiking the Woods

Day 11 June 16th, 2014 Today was another two-fer! I spent the day traversing through Bellefonte and State College, Pennsylvania, and thought that both of these photographs deserved to be featured for my 365. I took both photos in Bellefonte– … Continue reading

More Catching Up

Hmmm, where to start? First, an apology for my posting delay. The WiFi situation where I’m staying is a little ridiculous, so I have to be careful about my data usage– which means very little blogging time.

Now then. Without further ado, here I am to catch you up on the past three days of my 365 project. I hope that you enjoy!

Day 10
June 15th, 2014


This afternoon, I spent some time exploring the abandoned barn that I mentioned in an earlier blog. To give a bit of background, this barn is a short walk down the hill from the cabin, and was built in the early 1900s. It has long since been abandoned, and is now one of my favorite photo locations when I’m here.

My photo of the day was a bit of a surprise. I went into the barn with a grand plan involving flour, levitation (jumping), and window light. While I did snag that shot (I’ll include it below), I ended up enjoying the above photo more. It was a nice change from constantly photographing myself for my project (as the only willing photo model in the area) and the lighting was just too perfect to pass up. A few moments after I took this photo, my younger brother managed to spot a few deer through those slats in the barn, adding to the magic of the moment.



This photo records the exact moment when my brother became a little overzealous with my makeshift atmospheric effects (flour) and dumped a large amount on my head.

Sunny Days Ahead

Day 8 June 13th, 2014 The sun is trying so hard to make its way out of those clouds, but it’s only succeeded in little bursts so far. I realize that I’ve tended to dwell frequently on the weather during … Continue reading
