Long Time

Long Time

It's been a LONG time since I've posted work here, so it seems like now is as best as any. This summer has been amazing. My love and energy for photography has been reinvigorated by whales. Yes, that's right I said whales! I discovered that New York City has whale watching!!!!! Wait, don't think you heard that correct "whale watching" out of New York City. It's true!

On another note, again I must apologize to any new watchers and those that have favorited work. I have not gotten to thanking anyone for either, so this is dedicated to you, Thank You all. Galactica
