Pipe Dream #2: To Have A Model-esque Face, Revisited

This girl is fierce. She has a model face like no other (and also, pretty sweet boots).

I really appreciated shooting with her, because she knew that her family at home would love to see her smiling.



And smile she did.



Pipe Dream #71: To Be More Exotic Than 4500 Miles Away From Home

My girl Christy is a beauty. We had so much fun taking pictures the other day, and my favorite thing to do with Christy was pose her by the random tropical plants on the grounds. It looks like some model spread where they flew to some random island to shoot and all the shots look really exotic.

I’ll fake it ’til I make it,


Pipe Dream #69: To Capture Sweeping Grandeur

I was really looking forward to visiting the Lake District this fall. It’s one of those places that you read about in Jane Austen novels and imagine to be beautifully lush and idyllic. And as with most things I’ve found here in England, it is.

It is always frustrating to try and capture the sweeping grandeur of a beautiful landscape. I used my widest lens, and still, I can’t seem to encapsulate how BIG a moment feels, and how clear and real everything looks. Looking at landscapes like this in real life makes me feel small and very alive.

Pictures that can’t capture how a moment feels to me are just rubbish. By the way, ‘rubbish’ is a terribly English word.

Even though these pictures only capture an inkling of the true Lake District experience, it is enough for now to remind me of what reality feels like and leave me craving a brighter one.

Psalm  8:3-4,
