Mountaineering the West!

31 May 07 - 13 June 07

A close friend, Bryan Hill and I will spend the next two weeks climbing the stunning peaks of Glacier National Park on the border of Montana and Canada. There will be numerous stories and images to share upon our return.

Caving Adventure!

Yesterday, five of us ventured to an unnamed cavern in middle Tennessee. When the site was excavated in the 70s, all kinds of artifacts were found—arrowheads, tomahawks, and ancient cave paintings. When National Geographic caught word of the site, a story soon followed in the magazine. The location has since been gated off to visitors with the exception of those whom the landowners permit entry.

The adventure begins... 


Photography is literally painting with light. The film is the canvas, and the light is the paint. Inside of the cave today, we used a powerful flashlight to illuminate portions of the cave while leaving others dark (unpainted).
