A PHL Photo Outing with Adam

This morning I arrived at Fort Williams Park shortly before Adam, and about thirty minutes before sunrise. It was cold, but I had a great time. We hopped the chain link fence, as per usual, and climbed all over the rocks hunting for an interesting and unusual angle. The light was okay. Not awesome, but […]

PHL On A Truck

Five years ago last week, I stood in the freezing cold with my friend Jason and took a few handheld photos of a magnificent sunrise at Portland Head Light. I knew I had something to work with, and was excited to get into post and see what I could come up with. I tone mapped […]

My Therapist

I worked eleven days in November. I’m going to work four days in December. Things are tight, to say the least. I have a lot to be happy about, no doubt, but I think the stress is literally eating me from the inside. I feel like I’m going to implode. When my boss called last […]

Finally, A Day Together!

My Favorite Place

I’m not sure how much more of this I can handle. I used to take pictures to clear my mind and relieve stress but lately I feel […]


brentdanley Yes, that’s a keyfob. And, because it’s a Volkswagon Jetta keyfob, it’s also the key. Last Sunday the girls asked me to take them to Portland Head Light to climb on the rocks, hike and take pictures. The answer to that request will always be an enthusiastic “yes”. While I took pictures the girls […]

Picture In Picture

“How did you do that?” For some this questions is probably simple to answer. The following explanation is for those of you still scratching your head. The idea for this shot came to me in the shower yesterday, where I do some of my best thinking. I was inspired by a photo I saw on […]
