My daughter Penelope took this image of me when she was only three-years-old.

I’m 39 40 years old, a father of three, and a human being who happens to find happiness through the viewfinder of any camera in my possession. I live in Colorado, and I’m currently pursuing a degree in Journalism. I was born cross-eyed and I’ve always seen the world in double vision. I’m not sure if that affects my photography or not, but it has definitely affected my perception of the world around me, as well as the people in it. I traveled the world with the Marine Corps in my early twenties, and was too busy working or getting drunk in my free time to bother taking any photographs. This fact has given me the urge to capture everything I see with my cameras. I don’t ever want to miss an opportunity to record what I see in the world ever again. I’ve spent the last three four years immersing myself in the world of photography. I never leave home without a camera or two. I’m not sure if I am capturing anything relevant or if I’ll someday be recognized as a photographer of note, but I am enjoying life behind the lens.

  4. Hey Jeremy…
    Just wanted to pass on my thanks for stopping by to check out my blog and for being brave enough to ‘Follow’ it 🙂 I do wonder how you stumbled across it though?

  5. Great to see you on dragonshades. I think that being alive is always a good idea and at this moment it seems like the ideal time to be both observing and experiencing life. Through blogging we get the chance to see our own and others lives which is remarkable. Many thanks for the follow and much success in all that you do.

  7. I too wish I had had a camera with me at all times when I traveled the world (I worked for an airline, not the Marines). I wasn’t (always) drunk, it was more to do with the high cost of printing.
    The digital era has really revolutionised the way we take photographs.
    If you take photos all the time, I’d recommend this photographic website with I have been using for a number of years: http://www.blipfoto.com
    The free version is more than enough, the Pro version only has a few extra bells and whistles.
    There is this guy based in Denver who does mostly street photography: http://www.blipfoto.com/RaspberryJefe it may be of interest to you.
    All the best,
    Nic

    • Thanks for those great links, your insightful comments, and your time. I will be sure to check out those websites. I need to hook up with some Denver street photographers, it would be nice to have some backup out there on those streets.

  8. I feel like you were calling me out, so just to make myself feel better:

    My MOS was 1833, I was in from April of 1993-1997 stationed at Camp Pendleton, California
    I was a member of the 3rd Amphibious Assualt Batallion, 1st Marine Division. Started in Echo Co. moved to Fox after I got in some trouble when my first son was born and went UA for a few days. I was a part of Operation United Shield in Somalia. We provided protection for the final pull out of UN forces in the area. I got out as a Corporal after my 4 years. Loved it, hated it, and had crazy experiences that I wouldn’t trade for the world.

  10. Thanks for the recent visit to/follow of my blog. It led me here and I’ve just spent a bit of time perusing through your last dozen or so entries. You’ve got a really good eye for candid street photography. That’s a unique thing; keep on nurturing it.
