Writing and photography for me has always been an attempt to capture and share moments in time, emotions and insights that serve as a sort of time capsule to remind me who I've been in relationship to the world around me.

For the past 5 years that world has been Lake Tahoe, a place impossible to take a bad photo. Ask anyone who has visited Tahoe and they'll tell you this place magnifies your imagination.

"The cure for boredom is curiosity.

There is no cure for curiosity." ~ Dorothy Parker

In this post I share a collection of photographs taken in or near Olympic Valley, CA. These eight photos (including the one up top) speak directly to me. I call this collection "Deadwood?" because this wood seems anything but dead. It actually seems suspiciously alive, full of expression, movement, familiarity. There's a mystic and silent strength in these images which I hope resonates with your imagination as well.

You don't follow your passions in Lake Tahoe, they follow you... often times into the woods.

It means a lot to me and it helps others see the story.
