About the Site
This site, although fairly new, is the culmination of several individual projects and hobbies I have been working on for a number of years. I tried to start it as a personal journal of sorts, but without a strong purpose it faded away until recently. In that space of time I have begun working in photography so much that I see it as my future, and not just a simple side interest. My craft has advanced to the point where I needed somewhere to display it in the public eye, and so I remembered this place I had set aside and moved back in. This site will serve as a gallery for the best of my work, organized by its location and date. Most photos are set in a variety of environments in Arizona, and reflect how I see the subtle shapes and colors of nature here. Many will be macro, some will be landscapes, but all will be mirrors of my vision for you to browse and consider.
Alongside the Gallery will be my ramblings and ruminations on any number of subjects, though you can expect to see much regarding The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Unlike most games, Skyrim (and its predecessors Oblivion and Morrowind) allows its users to customize the game world, the mechanics and interactions of every element, and the graphic qualities to no end. It has thoroughly captured my attention and serves as a kind of “walk-in canvas” that I can use to make things that would be otherwise impossible. The game Oblivion is, in part, what caused my three-year preoccupation after the creation of this site, which may give you some idea of its creative impact.
You may also be treated to the occasional look inside a fictional world I am slowly piecing together from scratch, comprising its language, locations, cultures, and geography. I can’t promise any of this will flow together in a story-like way (I’ve got to keep some secrets, haven’t I?), but if I come up with something especially interesting it might be considered for a post.
And why the name? It comes from a D’ni proverb, the words of the Watcher, in the game Myst: Uru – The Path of the Shell. It will eventually be featured in full on the aptly-titled D’ni Proverb of the Week page for the especially curious. The Myst series has served as a foundation for my artistic aesthetic practically since I could move a mouse, and though the games have faded from popularity the memory lives on. The Great Tree grows without end.
So with that in mind, I thank you for stopping by and giving my art and writings a look. Take a walk through my gallery, browse my library, and most of all, enjoy!
