I had to get out and shoot tonight. This location just keeps showing up for me.

More texture that’s been right in front of me for over a year. Glad I’m finally looking!

This will be my last month at my current location. With that in mind, I find myself in a race against the clock to find every shot I can here.

Many times during this shoot I think Ryan completely forgot I was in the room with her. I was the voyeur, but only five feet from my subject.

I shot this in an almost haphazard fashion: Fast and loose, I wanted to see what I kind of images I could produce, while barely giving myself time to “properly” compose each photograph. I didn’t end up with as many keepers as I’m used to, but was particularly happy with this one, and happy to have experimented.

Now there is no question: This is absolutely turning into a series. I started creating these kinds of photographs around a year ago, and though always pleased with the results, I would typically move on to something completely different the next day. Today I find myself truly tapping into the spirit of these places. Where before I would drive past and not see them, today I find them everywhere. There is a clarity of intent that is pulling me in to take these photographs, and I couldn’t be happier.

It looks like a series of these types of images is starting to take shape. I love that there is so much warmth and beauty in something so common and essential.

This composition was clearly executed, but the way that this image looks like it was painted was purely by chance. It is often the case that wonderful things happen when you play with the darker side of exposure.

After years of driving past the San Onofre nuclear power plant I decided today would be the perfect time for a photograph. For some reason I also thought that I’d be able to get a clear shot of the place, which couldn’t have been farther from the truth. In fact there is no place you can legally pull off the road and really get a good look at it. Of course I  parked where you’re not supposed to, ran across the street, and got my shot. I wasn’t sure if it would turn out to be much, but was pleasantly surprised at the simple, elegant results. The foggy skies turned out to be just the right touch.
