This project began because I’m not a very good traveler, so I need to appreciate the environment that’s all around me right under my nose every day. I started these compositions as a photo album just for myself, based on the beauty and landmarks of my community. As it developed, I realized that what I was doing was quickly turning into something I wanted to share.

I work primarily in Photoshop CC, but also fall back on my very favorite draw program, CorelDRAW. I took most of these photos with my trusty Olympus XZ-1. Not primarily a photographer, I work my artistic magic in post production, where I realize my vision of the colors, textures, and hidden potential of my subjects. I have more compositions in the works. For more info on me and my work, visit me at
