Daguerreotype (throwback) Lens
This is a beautiful and buttery lens!
The daguerreotype was the first publicly available photographic process—widely used during the 1840s and 1850s. "Daguerreotype" also refers to the images created through this process.
Black and White
There is nothing so bold as a reduction of distractions as if to distill the world into raw shapes and compositions.
Skysweepers like cilia of the Earth - with the ancient wisdom of the rocks and the breath of living organisms, they are a bridge to the stars.
Cars and Trucks
The name, itself, is enough to heat up oil to exciting viscous levels
I was so fortunate to visit this beautiful country in 2016.
The despair of human things - the oxidation of forged metals, the breakdown of generational accomplishments - there is such beauty within the energy breakdown of mechanical-time.

A visual likeness and/or representation of who you think you may be, in my eyes, at a specific time within eternity.
Road Trip USA
The road is a passion and love so close to my heart. The rhythm and pulse of liberation and mobility is a romance of love and humanity. Of course, it is raw and unforgiving - such is the contrast... or synergy.. of the ebbs and flows of perception and emotion. So we have some nice visuals like signs and and roads and roadside stuff...
Landscapes and nature go together - this particular category includes landscapes and waterscapes excluding ocean-related - since there is a separate category for those.
