This was the type of day when one feels obligated to do something memorable. The sky was brilliant, no humidity, and warm temps made it impossible to just hang around the house. I grabbed my camera and headed to the Upcountry History Museum. The museum has been in the works for a number of years. … Continue reading The Upcountry History Museum
I was a fantastic fall afternoon, and Furman was threatening to lose yet another game (they didn’t, though), so I decided to head out and take some photos around town.

As a high schooler playing keyboards in a band, they were my idols because of their keyboard-heavy arrangements. “Carry on My Wayward Son” is still one of my favorite songs. … Continue reading Kansas on a Stick
It was a beautiful weekend for Fall for Greenville, and apparently everyone in town thought so, too. I headed downtown and wandered through the masses, snapping photos as I went. I’ve mentioned before that I have a problem with crowds. I wasn’t sure if it was claustrophobia or agoraphobia, but some phobia really makes me … Continue reading Fall for Greenville 2007
Local Greenville blogger Eric Rogers stumbled across one of my posts about tilt-shift photography and thought he’d give it a try. Eric is a filmmaker, so he took things a step further and tried to tilt-shift a video clip. The results are quite good.
