Love

Love comes in various forms. Whether it’s the love of a mother for her child, a husband for his wife, or the love between friends, love is visible everywhere we look. It lies in the hearts of those who help better each other, in the smiles of strangers, and the warm embrace of our family. Read more →

I am a Worthless Flower

I am a worthless flower I smoke cigars in the silver time And drink bourbon scotch whiskey In remembrance of death and My best friend’s Opa and Mimi And they are together in death Floating forever in the silver time   And I am a worthless flower Blossoming as the first star peeks out from the sky Mud and snow… Read more →

Presidential Legacies and …Beverages?

Let me begin by saying I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. Teaching history makes you numb to both. This piece is taking an unbiased historical perspective on the topic of presidential legacies and social progression. Second, if the analogy comes off mildly racist that was not my intention. When teaching kids, you must come up with simple and… Read more →

Post Halloween and the Scares Continue…

Unfortunately, I have been away from Industry of Mind for a period of time but it has always been in the back of my mind and on the back burners of everything that I do. As I have gone day-to-day, I still keep an eye out for things to capture in photographs and give you all a glimpse into what lies behind the reflections in my eyes and within the depths of my soul. Here is a sampling of things that I came across during the frights of Halloween.

 

I thought that Halloween of this year was going to be the most fright that I would have to deal with but given the events that occurred post Halloween this year, it seems as though the frights are yet to come. One thing that I can say for sure is that no matter what the upcoming months bring, I will continue to allow you to follow me on my journey to discovering, exploring, and evolving in my photography journey.

 

I hope you will like what lies ahead and, as always, please comment and let me know your thoughts. I would love feedback and any insight that you may have into my work.
