deer in headlights

i’m driving along the beautiful mid-western seaboard last night chatting with my good buddy john henry about mustaches when bam a deer is standing right in the middle of the highway. there was no time to think, just react. i quickly went into richard petty mode and swerved to the right locking up my brakes […]

peaceful

i dig people. all kinds, shapes, and sizes. but, as of late, people are getting to me. the negativity in their perceptions of the photographer. my past three assignments i’ve had to deal with dirty looks, people not giving me their names, and restrictions. it’s been hard for me to understand their logic. i wonder […]

mad to……

i just finished reading “on the road” (for the 2nd time) tonight. i feel as if i’m more mad now that i’ve dug it for the second time. there’s no doubt in my mind that we’re all mad in one way or another. what for though? what makes us mad? am i mad for photographs? […]

title goes here:

well, today was my first instinctual approach day. not much going on in the a.m. today. drinking some coffee in the office and toning some halloween decoration photos. nothing much. going mad and (most likely) annoying my only co-worker in the office at the time who was trying to get some work done. i can […]

instinct

okay. i think i will be coming out of my funk soon. some co-workers have hit the nail on the head with me this past week. 1. i’m over thinking things way too much. 2. i need to trust my instinct. the over thinking thing has been in the back of my head for a […]

blue

been an interesting week. saw a killer josh ritter concert and also got to meet him. if you don’t know his music do yourself a favor and check it out. very very good. got some good vinyl: exile on main street and hillbilly deluxe. got a wilco c.d. and a few josh ritter’s as well. […]

patience

i love film. it has a certain nostalgia for me. being a digital born shooter i never shot any film for an assignment of any kind, so all of my film work is personal. maybe that’s why i like it so much, i dunno. i shoot differently when i should film though. could it be […]

feel

i’ve been hovering the grey for the past few months, not really knowing anything. over thinking simple things and not feeling. feeling is my favorite sense, if it is a sense at all. i love to feel something. whatever it is and however it comes, feeling, both good and bad, never disappoints. i had a […]

island life

you know “the grass is always greener on the other side.” i can’t tell you how many times this has been said to me. and it may dance with truth in some instances. but, not when it comes to island life. both in a literal and figurative sense the grass is greener. i visited maui […]

first time

since it was a home birth and kari needed relative peace yesterday, four of the vincent children stayed the night with friends of the family. so, they saw warren for the first time today. here’s aspen holding little warren for the first time.

little warren

went out to the farm tonight where michael warren vincent was born at home this afternoon. he becomes the seventh child for todd and kari. it was amazing. this is kari’s third baby to have at home. it was quite surreal to her walking around and feeling fine only a few hours after giving birth. […]

10-4 over and out

one lamp lit living room, bare feet up on the coffee table, a lingering smell of smoke as i burn through american spirits, in between learning new tunes on the acoustic, figuring out how to play all harmonica, and best off all listening to ryan adams of vinyl (i’ll be seeing him tomorrow night). i’m […]

risks not taken

i heard some good advice today from a guy that writes on the subject: quarter-life crisis. it’s that point in life where after all these years in school we have to figure out what we want to do with our lives. i’m totally in this point in my life. but, that’s neither here nor there. […]
