This is one of my newest endeavors. Genevieve bought me a mandolin for Christmas, and now I am learning how to play it. I keep thinking of it as a tiny upside-down guitar. To that end, I thought it would be a good idea to learn how to play Jack Johnson's "upside down" as one of my first songs.

I like the shallow depth of field, blur and ambiguity of the body shape in this shot. I had several others today that looked like the cover of a music book, however, I was trying to find something a bit more abstract.


  1. This may be my favorite so far! Beyond the warm colors I like that I don't initially think about it being a photograph - I just enjoy it.

  2. I like the still point where the eye can rest.

  3. Absolutely one of the best so far!
