When I was a child I was fascinated by the stars. As a child I would often lay in the grass behind my parents house and gaze at the constellations, trying to comprehend just how the universe was created. My parents, from a very young age, always encouraged me to decide what it was I wanted to do with my life, so at age 10, I decided that one day I would be an astronomer so that I might some day make a career out of gazing at the night sky. I remember my parents, my father especially being proud that one day they would be able to tell people that they had raised an astronomer. That Christmas...

Maybe

When I was a child, I thought that when I grew up, that all my picture-perfect maps and plans of the future would come true. As of yet, very few of those plans I was certain and convinced would come true actually did. But what if things turned out differently? Maybe I would have been famous. Maybe I would have been successful. Maybe I would have chased dreams similar to those around me.

Three Small Words

How I feel; three small words I ask myself too much, and as for everyone else around me, perhaps not enough. I feel as if I've lived my entire life making other people happy, pointlessly documenting my anguish, pain, disappointment, and dissatisfaction of a wasted life in a books written pages.

Early 35mm Film Photography

Early 35mm Film Photography

This is my early photography work, developing 35mm black & white film at home for the first time. It was mostly experimental, haphazard, and unpredictable. I used sink water, and Kodak developer, and Kodak fixer. Everything was water-based, and inaccurately measured.
