I never really saw myself as a photographer, still don’t really. it’s just been a byproduct of being my own cinematographer when i direct films. despite how much i do it, photography is still just a form of play for me, and i like that. today, susie (the dog) and i played along the creek as the water danced through the mossy rocks. #play #whpplayful .

Every latent snowfall gives a little more life to the temperamental streams, as they ready themselves to feed spring.

Sunrise through the trees, with fever.

“come with me and you'll be
in a world of pure imagination
take a look and you'll see
into your imagination
we'll begin with a spin
trav'ling in the world of my creation
what we'll see will defy
explanation
if you want to view paradise
simply look around and view it
anything you want to, do it
want to change the world, there's nothing to it
there is no life i know
to compare with pure imagination
living there, you'll be free
if you truly wish to be” -roald dahl

The words of this frost poem really rang true for me in this little group of images... “when i see birches bend to left and right
across the lines of straighter darker trees,
i like to think some boy's been swinging them.
but swinging doesn't bend them down to stay
as ice-storms do. often you must have seen them
loaded with ice a sunny winter morning
after a rain. they click upon themselves
as the breeze rises, and turn many-colored
as the stir cracks and crazes their enamel.
soon the sun's warmth makes them shed crystal shells
shattering and avalanching on the snow-crust—
such heaps of broken glass to sweep away
you'd think the inner dome of heaven had fallen.” - robert frost

This was a fun collaboration with @atinaka, she had the idea of dancing within a rainbow, as if to direct it’s flow with her movement. light also has a magical way of dancing on its own, spitting flares and highlighting spots of water on the lens, bringing molecules in the air aglow. #whpmovement 🌈
