Self-Portraits | Gibson Ranch

I’m in love with farm-y stuff. Fences, rust, grass, boots, barns, all of it. Livestock, fields, dirt; everything. I mean it. Which basically means that when I’m back in California visiting my parents I have to visit Gibson Ranch and take pictures. Because there’s farm-y stuff there. So already I […]

Roadtrip 2014: Day 14

Going home. Bittersweet, flat and beautiful. This trip left a mark on my heart like nothing else. I fell more in love with the landscapes around me, forests, rivers, lakes, plains; all of it calling to my soul. I fawned over bison (And still think buffalo is a better name), […]

Roadtrip 2014: Day 13

Some places simply sing. The air around them vibrates with energy not just of the present, but from the last hundred years. Cotton candy clouds on the brightest blue background, floating over the world so carefree and fresh. Scrubby brushes and waving grasses; this place simply hums with a perseverant […]

Roadtrip 2014: Day 11

Geometric landscapes revealing the travels and tracings of time, the air filled with roasting, toasting, baking sunlight, and there we were, standing on the edges of snaking roads, taking it all in. Our eyes traced the curves and dips before us, amazed at the powers that this landscape was molded, […]

Roadtrip 2014: Day 10

I felt small under Mount Rushmore. The immensity of the sky stretched all around me, clouds shifting, darkening, lightening, growing. The grasses danced under the sun celebrating the flowers and trees, dust gathered, pooling and twirling behind the tires on the scratchy dirt. I felt small under Mount Rushmore and […]

Roadtrip 2014: Day 9

Some things I can’t explain, like fleeting feelings from sky-filled rectangle states, and I guess that’s why I took these pictures. Because I knew one day the feelings wouldn’t be words, but the pictures might still talk.

Roadtrip 2014: Day 8 (Part 2)

Somewhere in the fields flashing by out the window I found my heart. And sometimes when you find your heart you’ve got to show it, spread around the joy and celebrate before it disappears again. These pictures are my field-on-the-side-of-a-highway-in-the-middle-of-nowhere heart.
