Here comes the sun…

The future is very foggy right now (per usual). So while waiting for the fog to clear (or someone gives me a better road map) Emmett suggested a trip to the beach. Even though the high was only 59F (15C for everyone else) we still had fun. Emmett enjoyed playing in the sand as I read a book. Hopefully a new course will be set soon, in the mean time I’ll always have Emmett. ~ xxsjc

On Ice…

It seems that Me2 and I are living parallel lives except without the hardware crash. While he awaits jury notification on his entry to Fotografiska I am also on ice for the foreseeable future.

My fate is currently in someone else’s hands and it remains to be seen which way the ice will flow. But either way, the adventure will continue and I will console myself with a lovely cup of tea. I wonder if Sir D is available?

Insufferable Arrogance

“The insufferable arrogance of human beings to think that Nature was made solely for their benefit, as if it was conceivable that the sun had been set afire merely to ripen men’s apples and head their cabbages.”  Cyrano de Bergerac

In our supreme arrogance we may also think we are alone in the universe, we are the only ones pursuing a particular dream or that we alone have the answers; I am not that person. I know I am only one piece of the puzzle as I strive to find my place. I want to create that which will compliment and expand the human experience.

Fundamental Truth

“…there’s a fundamental truth to our nature, Man must explore…” – Dave Scott

Exploration and discovery is often a matter of perspective; danger is relative and more often than not just around the corner. Are we the watchers or the ones being watched? This is a journey with no destination and no guaranteed answers. I hope you will stick around to see where we end up.

In the beginning

Beginnings are always messy. ~ John Galsworthy


Mr. Galsworthy sums it all up so beautifully. The beginnings of Stuckinplastic, my beginnings as a photographer, my beginnings as a macro photographer…they have all been messy. I hope you will stick around as we work through the messy beginnings and grow into something we can be proud of.

In the spirit of beginnings I will show you my very first Lego photo.
It is not good, it is not memorable, it is not even in focus, it is simply the beginning.
When I took this photo I had no idea it would be the first step of an amazing journey.
I hope you cherish your first photo as much as I cherish mine.
