A Penny for your eyes.


The fog is gently growing over the landscape. The corner of the room is slightly tipping into the elevator shaft. I can't touch or taste what is lying in my mind. I am biting clouds to remove the grit of the ocean. The windmills float air through the windows. The moisture rests on my face. It is trying to snow. Soon it will snow.

Plastic Bottle

There is a small diner down the street that serves the best eggs and toast. Eggs and toast that make you happy to be alive.

Gum Tread

One morning things will be different. You might not even recognize your life. Start over. Move on. Enjoy the opportunities that present themselves.

Lamp Sky Diptych

There was a river behind the house. I remember the tablecloth had small faded cherries printed along the border. The chicken soup was warm and the roll was so soft being just pulled out of the toaster oven. The lamp in the living room was plugged into one of those automatic timers that would turn the light on like magic. It was 6:00 pm. I remember because grandma set the timer for 6:oo pm.

Truck Project


4 day bottle

For four days this bottle rested until it either got squeezed into the drain or someone felt sorry for it and decided to care for it.

Melting Away

This too will change.

Black Blue Sea

Go to the New Jersey shore. Walk to the furthest point of the shore where the ocean and bayside connect. Sit down and watch the two bodies of water merge and float out into the distance. Wait for the sun to go down before you start following the sand back to the beach house.

Extra Dry Gin

Five days a week I wait on the corner of Lowry and Central to take the bus downtown to my place of work. While I wait I usually take two to ten pictures of the ground. A Simple enough idea just like another project I started when I lived in LA which was to take a 4x5 film shot of the inside of my refrigerator for one year...The hope was that after one year I would have a huge show filled with 365 11x14 prints of my fridge. I did it for a week and lost interest. So far I have been taking pictures of Lowery and Central since May 2, 2008. Unlike the fridge idea, this series of photos continues to inspire.

Sometimes what is left over is all I can remember. Sometimes I let pictures tell me how things used to be and let my memory forget.

I used my father's 35mm Mamiya/Sekor to make this image. When I intially started thinking about the shot I intended on making an image in camera that looked like it had been worked in Photoshop. With a b/w xerox machine and a window I was able to walk the line between what is real and what is manipulated.

There is always something simple and perfect under foot.


My first post. I have been meaning to start this process for sometime now. In my journal I have a polaroid folded up that says on the bottom ...Begin today. Begin today. Well, I opened the journal today. Today is as good as any to get started. -s
