Walk 1.

The same walk. Three different mornings. Three different senses. My house to the library: sound As I neared the street (head down as to not be disrupted by the alien foliage) I was nearing the ocean.

Fuzzy Little Butterfly.

I made this image months ago, and there it sat, without so much as a one star rating, in a folder on my hard drive. It was a swing and a miss, a photograph I had zero intentions to edit, dust and share. Yet, five months later, scrolling through old files, it stopped me in my …
