|It's amazing how when you look into this photo you can make out faces hidden in the bark. I also like this bluish grey color, I thought that it worked for this image.|
|Another great shot of some tree bark. They were taken after I played a show in a park with this huge lake behind me. Easily the most comfy show I have ever performed at.|
|I wonder what wishes will become of these seeds as they blow off into the wind.|
|This was a tough fire to get started let me tell you. It had been raining a good bit in the area and all the wood we could gather was wet. After faning it forever and getting some hot coals to help us out we had a nice little fire going.|
|Ahhh, skipping stones by a river on a sunny afternoon. What a great trip it was with the sounds of a vibrant forest surrounding us and calm warm fuzzies floating around int he air...|
|It's a cool spring day out and I thought I would head and out and shoot some photos in my front yard. It's one of those days that it's not quite sunny and warm out and it's not quite cold or rainy or anything. It just kind of sits there waiting to be swept away by the night. So I thought, why not shoot some flowers?|
|More flowers and such. These were a tasty candy red.|
|I found this image hidden away among an old photo shoot I did for a cd cover last year. This image ended up being used as the background for the flyer promoting the cd. Turns out it makes a really nice looking desktop. There is a nice subtle pin-stripe pattern in the sky that I added for whatever reaason which is best seen at it's full resolution. Download and enjoy!|
|This is a combination of a few different photos. One of them is an older desktop called ghost. People have seen all kinds of different things looking at this. I was going to save this one for an art print exclusive release but I decided to share it here as well instead.|
|I realized that I didn't really have much black and white photography up here so here is a nice shot of some leaves in a park. I know its a simple subject to shoot but shooting it in black and white gave it this really relaxing feel somehow.|
|This makes for a nice companion for the above desktop if your running two monitors. It's simply another nice shot from the same group of photos as the one above.|
|I couldn't resist posting a photo of this wall hanging that I shot for some future content on flapbags.net There were all kinds of odd little things to shoot but this was one of my favorite. Check out the website for some crafty goodness and enjoy the desktop!|
|This is simply a version of the house above with a white background for those of you who may perfer it.|
|This was a really tiny patch of moss with neat little hairs growing out of it. The shadows from trees overhead made for some really beauiful lighting.|
|The sparkles on the lake just inches away from this little bit of swirly grass and moss make this photo feel so warm to me. Unfortunately it was in a shadow and not lit up by the warm daylight. I love the little intricate pieces of grass going every which way.|

I mix the audio at a local venue called Gate City Noise which happens to double as a record store. Sometimes when theres a bigger act playing I will bring my camera along to snap a few shots from the little sound booth. This was taken one night during a show by The Mountain Goats. I decided to mess around with some ambient type blurry shots and thought this one would make a nice desktop. I hope you enjoy it.
|I decided that I didn't like the pinkish tint to the desktop above so I made this alternate version for myself and I thought I would post it.|

Today I had some sesame tofu for lunch. It was pretty good. Now im stuffed and ready to take a nap. It's funny how these things happen don't you think? So, yep, I don't have to much to say this time around... Hope you like the desktop here, it was a lovely little bush to shoot. ta!
shot was taken in midtown Memphis of an neon
structure in front of Joe's Liquor Store. It is a
ball that spins three different ways and has neon
spikes coming out of it. It was a simple long
exposure on a tripod and then I adjusted the
contrast and brought out the colors more.

|I was out camping a few months back and there was this big log covered in moss which wasnt all that amazing until I noticed these little reddish whiskers poking out of it. I still don't know what these things are. Any idea?|

I bought this puzzle at this national chain of country cooking / gift shops that I once believed as a child only served crackers. As I was digging around for an image this week I decided that it made a nice subject for a desktop. It's supposed to end up folding into a cube but I have yet to get it nack into that shape. Oh well.
|The following five images are taken of a car which about 45 minutes earlier was on fire. I just happend to be stopping by as the owners (friends of mine) were getting ready to get it towed away so I had a chance to take a few photos of the aftermath. I couldnt decide on just one to post so I'm posting a few favorites.|
|There was a calm feeling all around the ashes of the car as it sat there lifeless and dripping wet from the firefighters that had put out the blaze. This feeling is one you don't see all that much on any given day downtown and was very strange to witness for whatever reason.|
|This was part of the windshield. I'ts kind of amazing how the glass just sort of melted away into the rest of the car.|
|Parts of the glass seemed like stained glass to me and had this really amazing brownish tint.|
|I liked the curve of this piece of glass and the contrast to the melted plastic of the dash. yum.|
|This series of three desktops were all taken of this huge sculpture of a dragon that was in a playground in Nashville, TN. It was totally covered in thousands of little mosaic images and so I thought some nice tight shots of some of the tiles would make for interesting desktops. Hope you like them!|

I know this one is pretty gloomy but I think that sometimes thats a good thing. The photo was taken up on top of a mountain on a beautiful foggy day. Nomally you can see out for miles and miles across the land below these rocks but the clouds were hanging a bit low on this day and I was climbing around right in the middle of one. It was really amazing.
|This was my favorite of a few shots that I took of some wood in my fireplace after the flames had all burned away leaving these amazing glowing coals. I thought about taking out that little bit of blue but I decided to leave it be as it was just part of the fire after all. It makes for a peaceful, comfy desktop, I hope maybe it will keep you warm on those chilly winter nights.|
|This is an alternate version of the previous featured desktop. I decided to make it a bit cooler in feel with the blue and more subtle in contrast so it makes for a less busy image that is perhaps more appropriate for a desktop. Hope you like it.|
|Sure does stand out from the previous desktops featured here eh? It sure was a lot of fun to make. I started with a photo of some clouds and started tracing them in illustrator and one thing led to another... You need to see this full size to catch all of the detail in it.|
|This was a great shot from some photos I took for a christmas card for some random company... ok so the company isn't all too random. In fact ill give you one guess what their name is... Its a tad bit blurry because I shot it sans-tripod for some reason but its a nice shot all the same. Enjoy!|
|I went over to a friend of a friends house this week to get some photos of his studio for his website. I wanted to use a shot from what I had taken there and here it is. I like how the light kind of bends along with the spinning record. Its a simple shot but I figured some of you might like a nice desktop of a turntable so here you go!|
|I went out to an apple orchard to shoot some photos for the company ive been doing some work for and I loved some of the shots that I got that day. I just thought I would share a little piece of one of the photos with you.|
|Recently I was inspired to head out to Hanging Rock (a state park near by) on a beautiful foggy day. I had been out there about a year before on a day like that and left feeling wonderful. Anyways, this time around I went packing my new camera (Canon 20D) and high hopes to capture some of the feeling that I had remembered so well. This shot of the lake out there is easily my favorite from the trip. Enjoy!|
|This image was made from a photo taken from out of a plane window on a trip down to Austin, TX. The white flare is from some random photo a friend of mine took while we were driving back from a squarepusher show in Asheville, NC. Mixing the two images just felt right so here it is..|
|I took this while I was out camping in Stone Mountain, NC. I like how the flame was in focus while the heart of the fire is kind of hiding behind what it created. Am I making any sense here?|

This is a friend of mine and the shot was taken in a park somewhere in Boone, NC. I've always loved the mood in this photo, its so peaceful.
|This image was somewhat of an accident. It was the first shot I had taken of a local band Mortar and Pestle during a CD release party in town and I had forgotten to get my film speed and exposure set up before I took it. After a couple minor tweeks in the color of the image I started to really like the shot for whatever reason. It works well as a desktop.|
|This was taken of my pant leg one day in my spare time while working over at Ampersand. I had just discovered how easy it was to make sepia toned and black and white images directly from my camera, an exiting moment to say the least. I wonder if that function will ever actually come in handy in the future... anyways.|
