I took a ride up to Maine to shoot the fall foliage. In true John O'Sullivan style, here is a shot of a lighthouse surrounded predominantly by evergreens.

When the cop car passed in front of my lens, I thought the shot would probably be ruined, but I took it anyway. But now, the more I look at it… I kind of like the burly cop car there. What do you think?

I went for a walk with my sister on Block Island; you can see my shadow in the first shot. I figured I would test out a new lens by shooting at 120 Frames per second. Usually, I delete shots like this after I review them, but I kind of like how they came out.

BTW The walk wasn't this dramatic.. I think we were talking about how garage apartments on Block Island aren't allowed to have kitchens for some reason.... that might not even be a thing.

In 2018, I was out in Death Valley waiting for the sun to rise, looking around for an interesting shot, when this couple walked into the area that I was going to shoot. I couldn't get mad at them for it; it's a wide-open desert, and frankly, it's wasn't much of a shot. They just stood in the frame holding hands, and I thought to myself, "it's sort of a cool pic now that they are in it." so I took a few frames.

When they walked back toward me, I told them that I got this cute-ish photo of them. I showed them the pic and explained that if they wanted it, I'd gladly email it to them. (after all, it's not like they hired me to shoot it) The wife (assuming it was his wife) was excited and started to give me her email. The husband cut her off and just asked for my card. The vibe that I got from the guy was that I just asked them if they wanted to extend their car's warranty. He took my card, folded it in half, and walked back to the parking lot with his wife. I thought to myself, "what a dick, I should delete that pic right now."

Months later, the guy did reach out and asked if I remembered who they were. Instead of saying anything back, I just sent over the JPG. In a follow-up email, the guy explained that he was now living overseas and that the photo I took captured one of his final days living in the states. In fact, my photo captured the very last sunrise he saw in the US. Lastly, he did apologize for being a little "off-putting". He explained that he was a little emotional that morning and didn't expect to talk to anyone.

I told him, “it’s fine and then sold him a new warrantee for his car. Sucker!!! I am joking of course, but it just goes to show, don't change who you are even if someone is a dick.... they might have a reason that has nothing to do with you. 🤓

Walkout into the desert during a new moon, and you will see more stars than you have ever seen. I remember the first time I ever saw the Milky Way with my own eyes, and I was well into my 30’s when I did. Unless there is another catastrophic blackout, no one will ever see the Milky Way in NYC… but wouldn’t it be cool if we could?

Tag someone you would want with you on a road trip into the middle of nowhere.... or the zombie apocalypse. Whichever comes first.

When I was done swigging a flaming log around, I decided to open up the lens, increase the time and ISO to capture an additional shot of the Milky Way. I forgot I even shot this until I looked back into my archives for an Earth Day pic a few days ago. I layered both images in PS and this is how they came out.

Happy Earth Day!!
I find it a bit odd that we have to designate a day to remind ourselves that we have to take care of this little rock that we are all traveling through space on... yet here we are. 😅

In frame.......
“The Milky Way” shot one year ago today in the Black Rock Desert, NV.
