Doctor Seuss

Dr. Seuss
This is the beginnings of what I would hope to be literary genius in the tradition of Chesterton. Seuss for now but we will soon be getting to the good stuff!

Church Doors

Church Doors
These are the doors from a church down the street. I captured this image on one of my walks with Ellie. Maybe one day I will compile some images from our walks and make a book out of it.

Playing in Ellie's Room

Family Portrait
This image was taken while we were playing around in Ellie's room. We (Brooke and I) really love this image because it captures the personalities of both of our children. Our playful Ellie is here being goofy with a glove patting Athanasius on the head while he looks on in drop-jawed wonder. Not to mention my wife with her great smile which was brought on by this funny scene. The whole glove thing was really cracking us up! She was putting it on and grabbing things and of course patting her brother on the head. We were having a great time!

Took this image on a little walk with Ellie while she played in a puddle. Then played around in photoshop and came up with this. I hope to get much better in the future but thought I share this piece of imperfect art (which is really hard for me to do sometimes).

Playing in the Playhouse


A Pepper

I had been wanting to shoot a pepper for quite some time. I had seen a study of a pepper by Cartier-Bresson (?) a while back and thought it was really interesting. This is my first go and I already have thoughts on what would make a better image but was pleased with this one anyhow.

Bass Pro Trip

This was our first trip to Bass Pro as a family. In fact, other than myself, it was everyone's first trip to Bass Pro. We had a great time looking at all the animals and everything else in the store.
Every night when we put Ellie to bed we ask her what she will dream about tonight she said she would dream about Bass Pro.

Athanasius and Dadda

My wife threw the elf hat on Athanasius a little early and grabbed a few shots.
