Incoming Grey 04.09.2016

The brightness of the earlier part of the day was darkened by the incoming clouds, though the sky was still highly luminous.


High Wind 03.29.2016

The wind gusting to the point of needing to lean into it, defined the day, from the fast moving clouds to the whitecaps moving upstream.

Valley Walks 02.24.2016

The two walks from today when combined together resonated and helped me make connections about the flow of time through observing these different sky conditions. The center image is from a middle of the day walk in Amherst and the two end images come from a late afternoon walk along the Connecticut River in Hadley.

Warm Wind Walk 11.09.2015
Wentworth Conservation Area

The warm wind surprised me! Stopping, I held attention for 27 minutes on the low fast moving clouds. Intuitively trying to judge the change of the movement frame by frame.

Returning to Blue o4.15.2015

While walking on April 15.2015 at Wentworth Farm Conservation Area I kept returning my attention to the predominantly cloudless sky for over an hour between 5:35 to 6:40pm. This group of twenty eight photographs documents this walk  (shown below the installation photograph) . 

This work was installed as part of the Sky Walk show in the summer of 2015.


Twenty Four Moments 10.15.2014 1:31–1:46pm

Fifteen minutes of watching clouds pass by the sun using my camera as a shield to protect my eyes on October 15, 2014 at Wentworth Farm in Amherst MA.
