Comparisons

A few thoughts on comparing our lives across social media.

Dating the Distance

Long distance is a killer for many relationships. With the physical distance of being away at school and the social distance of making new friends, college in particular can be a hard time to stay together with the one you love. But through the hardships, some students make it happen. Jason and Hannah met in…

Belchertown State School

Buildings tell stories. Whether it be a tumultuous chronicle of violence and neglect, a glorious historical account, or strictly the love stories written in graffiti on the walls, the structures we leave to the elements become media in which narratives are told. This photo essay is composed of shots from Belchertown State School, located in…

I’ve Been Lazy

To anyone who is bored enough to actually read and follow this blog, I apologize. I’ve been very lazy, and thus not uploading much. I do have a few blog ideas, so hopefully they’ll be up in the near future. Until then, enjoy some of my philosophical ideas, and all the other random things that…

Shoot Wide, Get Close.

I love photographing people. I feel they are not only one of the most interesting subjects to shoot, but also one of the most difficult. Every person has a story to tell, and every portrait is a window into that tale. I’m no professional, but I’ve been shooting a whole lot for the past 4…

Thoughts on My Recent Conversion to Full Frame

This isn’t an in depth review, just a few thoughts and observations after a few days with a new (used) Nikon D700. My other camera is a Canon 7d, and while it’s a very fine piece of machinery, I can say it just doesn’t have the same “pop” the D700 images have. I also know…

Let’s Elect a President

Today could change the course of American history. But not really. Let’s be honest, our two candidates don’t differ too much on many of their political opinions, and they’re both terrified to bring any new kind of idea to the table for fear it could lower their ratings. Both are terrified of Iran. Both want…

Who’s to say we’ll end up okay?

When I watch TV, it’s because I know that in the end, it’ll all be alright. Things will work out, returning back to a comfortable and level state of being. Life back to normal. I know, for a fact, too many people bring this mindset into their own lives.  “It’ll all work out in the…

If Facebook statuses were votes, we’d have quite the election

If Facebook statuses were votes, we’d have quite the election It’s getting to be that time again. As the election draws closer and important political debates begin, we can look forward to ridiculous and uneducated series of comments and pictures about each candidate all across the internet. The best thing about this country is that…

A writing exercise from English 354

 The point of the exercise was to use two different points of view on a story:   I take a bite of my sandwich. Chicken, with some kind of unique tasting cheese, spinach and tomato on roasted ciabatta. It’s warm, and I have to blow on each bite, but it tastes phenomenal. It’s the cheese…

Did You Count My Vote?

We live in a country that finds pride in it’s ability to allow each and every citizen to vote. I guess I’m lucky for that, though I take it for granted. I’ve never lived anywhere else, never had anything less. I’ve never known nor loved anyone who died for that right, so to be honest,…
