This is not an April Fools post, it is still March 31st, though it *may be one on me for all I know.
I do check my web stats and probably too often. If I happen to see that someone is currently on my site I will look at my Google Analytics Real-Time data to see where people are, what they are viewing, and how they got there. Just now this is what I see:
That was at 8:53 PM and over the Middle East. Now at 9:11 PM they are off the coast of Australia:
Can you hear me Major Tom?

In the woods of Maine, in a barn in the middle of nowhere, resides some of the best Mexican food you’ll find anywhere.
Michele and Michael were kind enough to let me be a fly on the wall for a few days, hovering about their activities, and then sitting down with them to discuss their restaurant.
Watch at your own risk, it will leave you hungry for more.

This production was the epitome of a one-man band, it was shot by me with no crew. I did the post-production editing, grading and sound optimization as well. The filming was done with a Canon C300 and is a mix of handheld, monopod, and sticks work. Post was done in FCP X.
The video can be found on my main web site, too.
Over the years, as I have glanced at my web stats, I have seen some surprising things – one example from a few years ago was links to my site from an online photography forum where members were citing some of my images as an example of the Leica look. The images they linked to were not shot with a Leica. Yesterday, in my stats there were multiple referrals from Flickr to my site. That’s something I’d normally be concerned about, I do not have a Flickr account nor do I want my work posted there, but it turns out the web referrals were for a different reason.
This has a publication date of Tuesday, Feb. 12th, but is in stock at booksellers already, Notes from a Bottle Found on the Beach at Carmel, by Evan S. Connell and published by Counterpoint Press.
It’s very nice to have an image from my personal work selected for a book cover, to have it coupled with great design is all the better, and to hear how much Connell loved the image completes the circle.
Unfortunately, Connell passed away a month ago at the age of 88. He was a nominee for the Man Booker International Prize for lifetime achievement in 2009. He was also the author behind the novels Mrs. Bridge and Mr. Bridge which became the 1990 Merchant-Ivory film, Mr. and Mrs. Bridge, starring Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward.
Tiger, Tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
The opening stanza of The Tiger by William Blake.
Building on my recent work for Princeton, the $1.88 billion five-year Aspire Campaign, I am very proud to continue creating imagery for, Burning Bright.
