    A Dark Reflection


    Be on the lookout for this sign. It marks the entranceway to the Shadow Fredericksburg. There everything is reversed. Ross Bob angrily photographs large unhappy bushes. You might find yourself in an analog nonfiction writing class. You may even find yourself attending courses at WMU instead of UMW. Everything in …

    Photo Free-For-All


    The clock is ticking. One has twenty minutes to gather all these images.

    This was a mirror hanging on the stairway of the antique shop. I liked how it caught another sign they had on another wall when I took the picture from this angle. The death of 15 butterflies.…

    A Picture of the Past


    I take some photos, but I don’t really take a lot currently. Mostly, I tend to take them of things like strange road signs or animals. I don’t really have a particular approach to my photography, nor have I ever worked to capture a particular feeling or meaning in one …

    The Power of Prophecy


    Most names have some kind of meaning. For example, Robert means bright fame. It makes you wonder if Bob Ross’s parents were somehow aware of his future when looking at his name’s meaning. Because this one name out of millions foretold this man’s future, I have decided all names have …

    Farewell Cruel World!


    So eventually we are all going to die. That sucks, right? Well, I guess if nothing else can be done to stop our inevitable demise we can at least figure out some of the things we want to do before we die. One way one can accomplish this is by …
