Messing around with the macro setting on my camera.

A Different Kind of Reflection

My best attempt at working with the different filters that GIMP has to offer.

Looking For The Girl

This picture was inspired by The Cure's song "A Forest." It's about this man who is in a forest searching for this girl he sees, and in the end she was never there at all. He's alone. I love the idea behind the song and tried to recapture it in my own interpretation.

Reaching Out For You

My first attempt at working with black and white with a pop of colour.

"Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder"

This is a picture I took while being driven around in the streets of my town. It was the day after a huge snow storm and I thought the colors of the stop sign and the white snow were a beautiful contrast.

My Heart

Today, my friend wrote this on my bed frame. It's a lyric from my favorite song and I had to capture it. It's so simplistic but says everything.

Only One Way Left To Go?

Some days it just feels like you have to choose between giving up and jumping into the unknown or walking away. This photo almost captures the idea of sitting on the fence between both.

"I've been looking at life with eyes half-open"

This is a self portrait I took one day while in the woods behind my house. I utilized contrast to make the photo more eye-catching.

Child's Play

A flower of paper.
I adjusted the textures and shadows in this picture.

"I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much"

Coffee and an inspirational message.
Nothing better in the morning.

Sitting As The World Passes By

There is so much beauty behind the idea of a bench, with this picture I tried to bring that out.
