Nature/Travel

As part of my time on the road with various shows I've gotten to see some amazingly beautiful spots in the world. Some are recognizable and other perhaps are only beautiful to me. I share these with you in the hope that they make you stop to wonder what every day items or locations around you contain hidden beauty.

There was so much fog in Monterey when I shot there that even though this is a picture of a sunset it feels wistful and so I edited it into black and white to fit the mood.

This photo looks so idyllic, but inside the falling down house were painted the words, "I've killed 88 people and no one knows it." My friend and I left pretty quickly after reading that!

Hasserot angel 1

Hasserot angel 1

One of my favorite things that I've ever photographed. In fact I specifically went back a second time a year later to shoot it again. The Hasserot Angel is a grave marker in a cemetery in Cleveland. Of the many angels carved from bronze in the area they are the only two angels where the elements have made them appear to be weeping.

The angel is in fact the angel of Death. The torch she is holding is the torch of life and it is upside down. It's extinguished at her feet.
