LoCreShiMo 2021 – On the Range

Cow on the Range
July 1, 2021

It’s that time again. And when I say “that time again,” I realize that a) it’s been 2 and a half years since the last one, and b) it’s July and not November. So what gives? LoCreShiMo, that’s what. It don’t care, it just wants your soul. It doesn’t have to be an annual thing, or even a thing that happens at a scheduled time. It does whatever it wants….


A tattoo by any other name

Tree Tattoo
June 19, 2019

  It’s been a long time since I’ve done any legitimate artwork. So when my sister asked how rusty my skills were, to design a tattoo we’d been talking about getting, I was understandably a bit hesitant. We’ve talked about getting matching tattoos for quite a while, and every time she visits, she jokes about how we should just go down to a local shop and get one. Now, I…


Did I bite off more than I can chew?

Some pretty exciting things are happening… after having not posted anything for over a year. I’m hoping to change that last bit. But I’ve said that before, I know. Starting not quite at the beginning, Phoenix Fan Fusion (that used to be Phoenix Comicon, for those who don’t know – they had to change the name because of legalities) ended a couple of weeks ago, and it seems to have…

LoCreShiMo 2017 – Bridge at night

Bridge At Night
November 25, 2017

I really love nighttime shoots. Back when I was doing bike patrol in Portland, OR, I would take photos of all kinds of things – buildings, parks, statues, even myself. This was in the infancy stages of cell phone cameras, so the quality was crap, but that just added to the neat effects. This picture probably wouldn’t have been possible on a phone back then, since you couldn’t really adjust…


LoCreShiMo 2017 – Blessed Virgin Mary

Blessed Virgin
November 24, 2017

We were walking around downtown Monterey at night, and suddenly found ourselves on the wrong side of the street, where the sidewalk suddenly stopped and turned to dirt. Not wanting cross in the middle of the block, we continued down the hill, alongside a very tall wall. It turned out that the wall belonged to San Carlos Cathedral. When we turned the corner at the end of it, we found…


LoCreShiMo 2017 – Ray at the ocean

We took a road trip to Pacific Grove, CA, to spend Thanksgiving with Megan’s brother and his family. Clocking at at almost 12 hours each way, I’m pretty sure it was the most time he’s spent in the car in one go. After eating Thanksgiving dinner, everyone decided to go for a walk down to the beach. The sun was already pretty low when we got there at 4:30, and…


LoCreShiMo 2017 – Doll Cabal

Doll Cabal
November 16, 2017

Keeping in the vein of creepy doll photos, here’s another one from the basement of Hanny’s, in downtown Phoenix. It’s got everything that I used to love taking photos of: Old dolls, chain link fences, any kind of unfinished industrial interior, and basement lighting. Hard to go wrong with any of that. I imagine this as some kind of basement of misfit dolls, where they hide out and extort people…
