Ridiculous & Sublime website is up!

The website for my in-progress feature documentary film, Ridiculous & Sublime, is up! Please visit it to watch the trailer, see photos, listen to audio clips, and make a donation to support the completion of the film. With a lot of work, a little luck, and the generosity of others, I will finish the film in the new year!

nature desktop wallpapers

Since I started photographing for Kripalu, my nature photographs of the grounds have regularly been used as wallpaper downloads by thousands of visitors to Kripalu’s site. I remember meeting a woman in a bar in San Francisco who had never been to Kripalu, but faithfully had my photos on her computer each month! It’s strange for me to think about all the places that, unbeknownst to me, my images are traveling without me.

If you’re interested you can download it for yourself. It’s got a handy-dandy reference calendar on it.

I took the above pine tree one back in ‘06, my first winter at Kripalu. I remember wandering the grounds in mid-March (not December, ssssshhh don’t tell).

This one was very popular last month and many people have kept it even has the season has progressed from autumn to winter. It was not actually taken on the Kripalu grounds, but at the neighboring Audubon Society reserve where I took a hike with guests in a Tai Chi program.

One month there was a photo for which everyone had different ideas about whether it was the moon, the sun, or a reflection in the sky over the lake. I had encountered numerous guests who, when they discovered I was the staff photographer, asked if I took that picture and what it was. One man apparently had a disagreement with his 7 year-old about it. If I can find it I’ll post it, and identify the object.

I recently created a postcard to advertise my business. This is it. Any day now my new and improved website will be up! It will feature a complete graphic design gallery, new photos of the monks, and a new “events and editorial” photo gallery. Stay tuned!
