My poem is called The city at night by Charlie Kane.

The city is very beautiful at night.To see the shimmering lights
In the buildings around,
Beacons to the minds eye.
The cars slide through the dark
And then disappear again
Into the dark corners of the nights.
The people weave in and out
Of the fabric of the night air,
Appearing briefly as a
Silhouetted puppets in the night sky.
The city is always very beautiful at night.

- Charlie Kane

Chose this poem because I have it at home, and i'm familiar with it. I like the simplicity of the words and it also fits the subject matter I enjoy shooting.

I like the look of this one although the images are too large. 
For my homophones, I haven't decided what I want to yet. However, I've shot 2 roles for a couple different sets of words.

My words:

peak, peek, pique
vain, vane, vein

My antonyms are granular and smooth, my synonyms are linear and unbroken.

Independent Project

For my independent project my initial plan was to shoot skiing. Unfortunately after 3 days of trying, nothing was coming out due to a scratch on the lens which refracted light in an ugly and blotchy way. I started shooting other aspects of the mountain and how we interact with it.

These are the three images that I am most happy with.

Love the wispy affect created by a long exposure.

15 second exposure, love the saturation.

Beautiful sunrise, one of the most peaceful moments of my life. 


My Diptychs and Triptychs:

Like the contrast, and the tension.

Loose Tea.

Like the contrast.
