Kyle watched his hand reach out to her face.  Just as he was about to touch her, she shrieked through her stitched jaw and wiggled on her pedestal.  Kyle backed away, and she yelled louder.  He whispered to her to be quiet, but she wouldn't stop squirming. -- Squirm by Doug Goodman

A Moment Of Hope. Originally published on April 14th, 2008, for the short story SQUIRM by Doug Goodman on the Edge of Propinquity.

I am very pleased that I was awarded the People's Choice Award for Best Horror in the Norwescon 35 Art Show. I am very gratefull to everyone who voted for my work and I'm sure it wasn't an easy decission as there was some wonderful horror pieces in the show this year.

As usual around these parts and this time of the month the Edge of Propinquity publishes a new issue. I give to you images from two stories.

The first photo is for the story "Sir Joseph Bazalgette's Spirit Bowl" by T. D. Edge. The tale takes place in the restroom where two stately gentlemen render a special kind of assistance to those in need. Originally, I wanted actually shoot this in a lavatory with a table and table cloth, a silver bucket full of ice and a pair of glasses. My luck in finding the perfect restroom in Seattle for this shot came up empty as did the search for the bucket. Because of the kind person I am, I'll let you guess where the photo was actually shot at. For those who are curious, that win bottle is one I've had since my wedding from 12 years ago. Isn't it awesome?

The mont of August takes us from The Last Call to Dead Man's Curve in issue 56 of the Edge of Propinquity.


"Missed Call" was shot in my livingroom for the sole reason of the orange peel texture walls. Ultimately, none of the photos that featured that texture were selected, so this photo could've been shot anywhere, but because other photos were shot in the living room, so was this. I always get the strangest looks when I tell the cashier I'm buying this item so I can break it. Older phones, like the one from above, are made from a really hard plastic. For instance, it took about 10 hits from a 24 oz ball peen hammer before it began cracking. I continued hitting a couple of 30 more times before a chunk broke out of it.

"Dangerous Knowledge" is one of those photos that are also a lesson in doing things right and being patient. I had found the perfect soul jar in a ceramic crock. I had the perfect vision in mind of the crushed soul jar and the ashes of impending ruin. So excited for this concept was I that I ran out to the parking lot over lunch. I lefted the crock into the air broke it on the pavement. Only then did I realize that I may have wanted to take a few pictures before I broke it. You know, in case I didn't like the photos of the broken jar. The silver lining in all of this, of course, is that I'm getting really good at shooting night time photos at high noon.

"Welcome to the Edge of Propinquity. Issue 54 is now published. This month we have the loss of thing dear, a story finally told, the exile of a loved one, the crossing of a line and the final release of an old soul." - Jennifer Brozek, Editor

The first photo is of a ghost story, or rather, a ghost's story told in the traditional fashion, in the dark and by candle light. I give you Midnight's Tale.

I take a lot of photographs, but I think you already know that. My only regret is that some of them never get the exposure, pardon the pun, that the others get. Take for example this shot:

The photo was taken at the Dominican Fathers building in the University District. It was shot for the story "Sins of the Brother" by Jennifer Brozek. it was ultimately rejected by the author in favor of the figure of St. Francis of Asis.

Getting there. Really, I am. I was sidelined a bit yesterday with the need to take down a tree before it fell down on my house, so only some photos got shot last night and not much more...
  • Shoot the last day of the play down in Renton Only ~2500 ~2300 photos left to edit...
  • I have six two different photos I need to create for The Edge of Propinquity, two world images one world image, and images for four three different one stories. These have to be done by Thursday. Hopefully I will be able to knock out two or three of these this evening.
    Update! Did the shoot with [livejournal.com profile] gypsiequeen (whom I forgot to mention earier! :( ), [livejournal.com profile] gaaneden and [livejournal.com profile] romeos_mistress for the Kendrick world image. Now I just have to edit them.
  • I need to select the images I’m going to show in the Rustycon art show, get the prints made, and then framed.
  • Monday I have a shoot for a paying client (yea!) (although there was a hair on the lens which showed up in every photo!)
  • Monday I have to return rental equipment for the play I’ve been shooting.
  • Friday is the first day of Rustycon and I’ll need to set up. I’ve never been to Rustycon, so I only have a vague idea of what to expect. It was described to me as more laid-back and less formal than Norwescon.
  • And lets not forget the day job. Mind you, I have Friday off, but still and I forgot about having Monday off as well, so that's pleasant!
Am I dead yet?
