It's been a loooong time since I added wrote a journal for this page. And honestly, it will probably be a long time until I post another one after this. The reason is two fold.

First, I built and moved into my dream house in the woods over a year ago. This is awesome, except for the fact that i have limited internet access. Now I know that that may sound crazy in today's world but it's true. I don't have access to anything other than internet through my cell phone using a hot spot. That means that it is very hard for me to upload photos and also update journal entries. 

The second reason is because of the speed of my life at this point. I am still "doing" art. However I have moved away from photography and more toward functional art. What I mean by this is stuff I use everyday. I've made farmhouse tables, Woodworking benches, a draw knife bench. I often find myself "creating" with a chainsaw. That my be a bench or a home made pole fence for my goats. Oh yeah I have goats now, and ducks and a large garden. I've moved away from having the time to create art that is separate from the life that I'm living.

I have always seen photography as a form of art that divides. What do I mean by this? I mean that the photographer is behind the camera, designing the shot, and separating himself from the art.  What I am doing at this point is living a life that does not allow for the time to create anything separate from what I need. Does this make sense to any of you? Maybe not, but for me it does. Raising animals, small time farming, creating projects out of the actual raw materials growing around me - it's a different kind of art, but still art in my mind.

In short, I'll be back someday, when I circle back toward my camera. Things will change as they always do, and I haven't forgot about this site and all that it means to me.

Whatever you do, Stay Artsy- Chuck

Just a guy taking random photos and calling them art. Working on craft projects and sometimes some painting.

I like Art but am to lazy and with too little time to become a real artist of any kind.

Lazy+Artsy+Guy= A Lartsy Guy.
There it is, I'm officially Lartsy....but you can call me Chuck

Current Residence: NH
Favourite genre of music: metal and trance


The change in colors with the star trails is what makes this photo unique. However, I only gave you 31/2 stars for originality because ...

I really like this photo. The juxtaposition of the metal, industrial barb wire is perfect against the natural tone of the plant. I like...

You make some great pictures!

What I like about them that they might not be 'professional' but full of expression which makes them very real.
You can clearly see you love making pictures and what you photograph
