One more from the Subway

The Subway

I've never been much for the big city. When someone mentions the Subway, this is where my mind goes. (These are older images as well. This was a trip I took with my cousin Spencer back in 2007)

Spiral Jetty Decay

I took a class out to the spiral jetty a few years ago. Hadn't posted anything from that trip yet so I went back to see at what I shot. This is one that I liked. (I didn't even shoot the jetty ironically)

Joseph Smith Birthplace Memorial

I'm posting these for my mom. (Its her and my dads anniversary today) I took these photographs on a trip through Maine, Vermont & Canada that I took with them last year and they had not seen the images yet.

Ira Glass

"Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through."

I am going through and cleaning up my hard drive now that I have completed Grad School. These were a couple old pictures I found that I took while on a training trip to New Hampshire about four years ago.
