photograph of a soda bottle and bottle cap

The late afternoon sun coming through my kitchen window provided an opportunity for a different perspective on a popular, refreshing soft drink.  You might even say this brand is a piece of Americana.  The marketing behind this beverage is so incredible, you’re sure to recognize it despite the fact the label is obscured and the bottle cap is completely out of focus.

Stones Along the Shore

This photograph was taken on Hog Island Wildlife Management Area, along the James River, near Surry, VA.  It was a cold February morning, just after dawn.  While the entire scene looks wet, it was actually frozen.  The sand along the shore was a hard as cement and the foam around the river stones had been turned to ice.

photograph of crossing lines of light and wicker

While having lunch I noticed the intriguing pattern of lines at my table.  The wicker place mat was crossed by the shadows of the blinds, which were themselves crossed by the stitching.  All this seemed like a fun way to make something out of the utterly mundane.
