This sits at the corner of the barn, I’m not exactly sure what it would have latched onto…
Though the house was built in the 1920’s, I’m not sure when the windows were installed. Their latches look like they haven’t been touched since the seventies, and the spiders have made their homes around them.
We thought this was a goat house, but after talking with some of the neighbors it turns out that the previous owners had raised sheep. I shot this as the sunset in Greenfield Indiana.
We burned an old brush pile and as the flames were dying down I spotted some old pages of a book that had been burned, unbeknownst to us. I couldn’t get too close to the pages with the camera because of the intense heat, but I did manage to snap a few shots.
On my in-laws new property is this old goat house. I’m not sure what draws me to it, but it turned out to be pretty photogenic.
The sun was just about to reach into the golden light hour when I took this photo. At the time, I didn’t really appreciate the long shadows that it was casting, but afterwords, when I was looking at it on the screen, I was really drawn to this shot in particular.
I loved the way this tree had clusters of mushrooms being covered with snow.
This may be one of my favorite nature photos that I’ve taken to date. For some reason, when this tree was knocked over (by a storm or another natural occurrence) the break happened like stair-steps across the rings of the tree. It made this really interesting pattern, both organic and nearly symmetrical at the same time.
I took a walk on the fresh powdered snow. I love winter in Michigan when it looks like this.
Definitely one of the grungiest photos I’ve ever taken. This was the logo on one of the valves, buried in the back room of my church.
As I walked across the bridge at Lake Erie Metro Park I saw these plants reaching up through the bridge.
I took this photo right after a rain storm in Jackson Mississippi. To get close to the subject I used a lens extension tube.
I noticed these water droplets as we were walking through the Cypress Swamp near Jackson Mississippi after a rain storm.
This photo was taken using a lens extension tube for increased depth of field and the ability to get really close to the flower. No Photoshop enhancements were made, apart from a small color correction tweak.
I found this key in my grandmother’s house. I’m not sure that it actually goes to anything, but it looked good against the window cill.
Among the many plants at the office I found one that is apparently half palm tree, half regular plant. The light coming into the window allowed me to emphasize just this part of the plant. A co-worker, Brandon, pointed out that it looked like a sea anemone and I completely agree.
My wife and I were on a walk the other day when I spotted this praying mantis. I don’t think it really appreciated having its photo taken, but since it was a praying mantis it could only show disdain by looking at me crossly. Apparently I’m turning into an insect and arachnid photographer, which is probably beginning to worry everyone else I know.
We were in the middle of this corn field, trying to find our way out of the maze when the sun was setting. I stopped long enough to take a few pictures before we continued our efforts to escape.
Another shot of the same flower, at a different time of the day. This time the sun was almost directly behind the flower, filtering the light a little bit.
This field of sunflowers was just outside of Wilmore Kentucky. I went just as the sun was coming up to take this photo.
Seconds before we left Georgia yesterday I snapped this photo. I had been eying the mushrooms on this hill for a few days but had never been around them with the camera. Thankfully I got to it when the sun wasn’t straight above my head, which is always helpful.
This spider was building his web over my station, I took some photos before I released him into the wild.
I took this photo on the second floor of the old hotel at Indian Springs camp.
I often overlook the mundane things… this photo sat in my library for I don’t know how long. When I saw it again, it just hit me how there was so much detail on something I see everyday, a piece of grass.
Our Siberian Husky, Temuco, resting beneath Andrew Wyeth’s painting entitled “Master Bedroom.”
I went out on a foggy morning and shot some photos of Asbury Seminary’s campus. This is one of my favorites, sunrise over Estes Chapel.
This branch had just sprouted new life in the first part of spring in Michigan.
I stopped to take photos of the Queen Anne’s Lace and realized there was a lot more going on than it appeared. As I started taking photos one of the ants fell off the plant and was caught in mid drop by another ant. It was actually rather dramatic, as far as ants go.
When someone I know receives flowers I typically take photos. I was particularly happy with this photo.
I had taken photos of this bush before, but I thought the yellow Ginkgo trees in the background added something to the photo.
After breakfast at Shaker Town in Kentucky I took this photo. I couldn’t resist the lighting on this one.
More Kudzu than snake… I thought the Kudzu was making a really interesting shape.
I took this photo in Kentucky just before the leaves started changing colors for the fall.
Spotted from the train from Chillan, Chile to Santiago, this must have been an old, decaying wood processing plant. It looked like it hasn’t been operational in ten years. Lots of really cool textures though, would love to wander through it some day.
The way this tree was leaning in the middle of the wheat field struck me as very interesting.
The second time I crossed the tracks was at night, in the back of the same pickup truck. Thankfully he slowed the truck down just enough for me to shoot without blurring.
Shot in Temuco Chile, I liked how these posters lined the walls as if they were trying to wall-paper the old building.
Fruit stands like this were all over Temuco Chile. The fruit is really amazing, worth the trip on its own.
I’m not sure why this door says “Oils”, but I thought it was interesting enough. I took this on a random walk through the city of Temuco, in southern Chile.
Atop the hotel in Santiago I spotted this ladder, just leaning up against the wall of the open-air restaurant.
I saw the cross and stained glass window composition in a Chilean church and couldn’t pass it up.
I took this photo while crossing Lake Arenal in Costa Rica with my Fujifilm S5000.

For me, this was a new take on Graffiti. I saw this wall of bamboo at the zoo in San Jose, Costa Rica.
I love the texture of leaves, when leaves are backlit it’s one of my favorite combinations. I took this photo in Monteverde, Costa Rica.
I took this picture in the summer of 2004 in my back yard. For this photo I used my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera.
I saw these two Crocodiles at the Newport Aquarium in Kentucky. I used my Fujifilm S500 digital Camera for this shot.
I took this photo at Jessamine Creek in April 2005. I used my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera.
I was bored so I took some photos of this box of matches. For this shot I used my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera.
Believe it or not I took this picture of Yi Jien holding a lighter without the use of a tripod. I used his Nikon D70 digital camera for this picture
This leaf was attached to a tree right outside of the business office of Asbury Seminary in Kentucky. It was taken right before sundown. This photo was taken using my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera.
This picture of Asbury College’s bell tower was taken from my neighbor Yi Jien’s window. I used my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera for this shot.
I took this photo from the edge of the road in Guapiles Costa Rica. There was a pretty heavy storm rolling in and so I had my host father stop the car for a minute. This photo was taken using my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera.
I saw this sailboat on spring break to Playa Tamarindo in Guanacaste Costa Rica in February of 2004. For this picture I used my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera.
I took this photo of my Nicaraguan host parents from the back of a horse during my visit in February of 2004. For this photo I used my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera.
I saw this holy water basin when I was visiting the church in Managua Nicaragua. I took this photo with my Fujifilm S5000 digital camera in February of 2004.
