Artist | Photography
United States
I'm a practicing photographer who has been capturing and sharing images while traveling across the United States for over seven years. I've been fortunate to be able to travel to many places and even have had opportunities to do photo shoots with a number of amazing models. The collection here is just a sample of some of my favorite images.

For the time being, this is my hobby, but the dream is for this to make my living. I appreciate your contribution towards my dream.

I hope you enjoy your visit!

Thanks,
Mike

I'm thinking about starting a youtube channel to share tutorials on how I take and edit photos, my workflow, etc. Would you be interested in watching?

The Road Less Traveled by M-Lewis
The Road Less Traveled
I've sometimes wondered about this poem by Robert Frost.  The traditional interpretation seems to be positive, in the sense that a life is better because of taking the road less traveled.  However, that is not the actual words used - just an interpretation.  Frost only says that the road he chose made a difference.  And indeed it ought to, for better or for worse.  I feel that the road you take isn't really for the better because of the road itself, but it's the better because you took it.  Had Frost taken the other road it would have made just as much difference.  So make your choice and run with it - you only get to live today once. 


The Road Not Taken

By Robert Frost
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

Bond Falls II by M-Lewis
Bond Falls II
I took this photo at Bond Falls, Michigan during a drive through Minnesota and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  I loved the scenery there, but hated the mosquitoes.  With no regrets, I literally bled in the due course of making this one, I hope you like it.

Mackinac Sunset I
Dock view of the sunset looking towards Mackinac Island from St Ignace (the town in the Upper Peninsula).  To be honest, this shot is looking east, not west (that photo will com in time), but the colors and the view with the lighthouse was just as beautiful as the setting sun behind me.  I hope you like it!

Highway 2 I
I took this photo during a drive through Minnesota and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  This is a new part of the country for me and it continuously amazes me just how straight and flat the roads can be here.  I would consider this depiction "hilly" compared to the hundred or so miles the lay behind it.  But despite all that, or in spite of all that, I drove through a thunderstorm and once I saw this stretch on the other side I pulled over to the side of the road so I could make this image.  I hope you like it.

Over the weekend my page hit 10,000 total views (currently over 10,100)!  I want to express my sincere thanks and gratitude especially to everyone watching my page and also to everyone who stops by for a nibble every now and then.  I've got plenty of photos left to upload from my photoshoot with Emilia and Sam and have a number of pictures from my recent trip to Washington, DC as well.  Look for more posts to start coming later this week and regularly through at least the end of this year.  This winter I think I'm going to try my hand at water droplet photography, it's always fascinated me and I think I'm ready to give it a shot.  Does anyone have some advice on this? 

Thanks again everyone,

~Mike
