O Christmas Tree,

O Christmas Tree,

How steadfast are

your branches!

Your boughs are green

in summer’s clime

And through the snows

of wintertime.

O Christmas Tree,

O Christmas Tree,

How steadfast are

your branches!

Mini-series 1: Cemetery

with 2 comments

I can’t sleep. I was tired all day. I don’t understand. So if my words don’t make sense, you’ll know why. Anyway, here are some relatively new photos. I’ve been working on putting together a collection of these different…shit, I don’t know what to call them, groupings, mini-essays, mini-series…whatever, call it what you want. I’d like to someday put them all together into book form as a collection of these different series.

I like to spend a little extra time, in between all the other stuff I have to do, at places I find interesting, places most people would find quite ordinary. I try to make as many interesting photographs I can, hoping I can get a handful that I like, and create some sort of narrative. Maybe narrative is not the right word. Maybe they are simply small details or documents of a certain place, at a certain time, that moved me enough to make a photograph. I don’t know if they will really work for other people or not. I’ve never really shared them. Maybe somebody will like them. Here’s the first one. Maybe I’ll share more in the future.
