This concludes the photos of the few hours I spent with Shorty on the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad back in July.

I have many influences on my photography. It ranges from other artists to movies to television shows to friends to family. However, one of the most obscure influences on my photography is a book I was given as a child called simply TRAINS. I still have that book. It is a little worse for the wear and Karma chewed up the binding 15 years ago or so. I still crack it out and look through it now and again.

That is a little peek into my methodology.

Agua. Por Dios.

I’ve always had an affinity for water towers. Sometimes I like to photograph them.


Luther Water Tower

Captured this one in Luther on a foggy December morning.

The Canvas Wall

The 9 Emotions Project Wall is no more. The 9 16×20 photos are gone. Technically they are stacked in the guest bedroom until I figure out what I’m going to do them.

I’ve replaced them with 9 16×20 canvases to diversify the pictures on my wall and I have this theory that they will be easier to dust. Or at least easier to put out the lie that I dust.

These are the 9 new photos you will see the next time you come visit the Photography 139 Studio:


Canvas No. 1

Canvas No. 2

Canvas No. 3

Canvas No. 4

Canvas No. 5

Canvas No. 6

Canvas No. 7

Canvas No. 8

Canvas No. 9

Right now the 20×30 9 Emotion picture is still up, but that is going to come down sometime soon. I just need to figure out if I’m going to use that space for a giant canvas, or if I’m going to break that spot up with a few more 16x20s. I guess we’ll see what the future holds.

Canvas No. 9

Another photo from a foggy Christmas Eve morning.


High Trestle Trail Bridge

This image will probably pop up in a post again in the future.
