Magee Farms 

  A produce stand at Magee Farms. 

I can only imagine how it looks when it is open for full of fresh fruits and vegetables and open for business.

Magee Farmhouse
 This 100+ year-old farmhouse is still standing and looking good for her age. The roof is in good shape, most importantly, and has wood shingles on it. Most of the farmhouse I find have tin roofs, so this was a great find.

The owner does have plans to repair and renovate. That put a smile on my face.

The Blue Bike 

" Life is like riding a bicycle: you don't fall off unless you stop pedaling ".
~Claude Pepper
I had forgotten about this shot, so cool to stumble upon it while going through some older folders and found this. This was taken outside an Antique and Country store in Raleigh NC that has since closed.

Dawn Breaks On A Photographer

 Fellow photographer +Stephanie Fecik  joined me on the photo-shoot of this amazing farm in rural Delaware a couple weeks ago. We had fantastic light and great weather as we tried to capture this rustic beauty if Magee Farms.  
   It was such a great day, I only hope I have captured some of that in this album.

Rusted Plow

“You'll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind”
~Irish saying
A crumbling old barn serves as the perfect backdrop to this Rusty Plow. This beauty is also located on the incredible Magee Farms.

Google+ is ALIVE and well 

Thank you +Mike Elgan for this well-reasoned, and factual, article!

" The echo chamber tech press, on the other hand, insists in saying Google+ is being killed. Their information comes from nowhere. They made it up ".

+Google+  #ghosttown   #majorityillusion  
Sorry, tech press. Google+ is alive and well.

(Read my column: )

A chorus of tech journalists this week is saying that Google is phasing out its social network, Google+.

Where did they get this juicy nugget of information? Well, they made it up. And I'll tell you why.

But first, let's look at what the press is saying and compare that with reality:

" Of the 9.25 billion things to love about George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road is that, after more than two months since its release, we’re still talking about it, and people are finding more and more awesome things about which to talk " !

  Be warned, though, this video features scenes from the entirety of the movie so if by some ridiculous chance you haven’t yet seen the movie, then A) you’re weird and must live in a hut in Siberia with working internet, and 2) there will be SPOILERS. Due diligence done. Enjoy!

Of the 9.25 billion things to love about George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road is that, after more than two months since its release, we're still talking about it, and people are finding more and more awesome things about which to talk. It's like there hasn't been an action movie that was actually made with care and forethought in the last 30 years for how much cinema snobs and scholars are analyzing it. And, you know what? Largely there hasn't been...

Left Behind photography has moved business websites! You can now find me at:

   This is where you can view, and hopefully, buy my best works. I am moving away from Redbubble for a few reasons. The main one being that the markup on Redbubble is quite large. So I will be fulling orders myself and passing the savings on to you! 

  So please check out my new site. It is still a work in progress as I am adding products and price points daily. If you want I size but you do not see it available, contact me and I will get that added right away. 


P.S. If you have not Circled +Left Behind, photography by Kyle Wilson I would be grateful if you did that soon.

Howdy & Welcome If these photos have a mission, it is to capture the beauty in everyday objects, the beauty of rarely viewed scenes and present them in a unique way. If I have done my job properly the image will make you wonder about the story behind the photograph..

Circle Possibilities for me:


A few years ago I made some dramatic changes in my life. One of them was losing ~40 pounds and totally changing and remaking myself. I became a GYM RAT in the process and working out is a large part of my life. 

Kyle 3.0 is the current version of me. Will it be the last ? Stay tuned. 

I like Tech, gadgets, Movies and Sci-Fi. Some of my favorite authors include William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaimen and Vernor Vinge. 

Favorite movies include:

Mad Max: Fury Road !!!!
District 9
Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind

I love Halloween and RenFests. 

Most recently I won 2nd place in Cary Photographic Artists 6th Annual Open Juried Show.
( for my work “Boiler Room”
Before that I participated in both the 2013 Clayton Harvest and Music Festival and the 2013 Cary Lazy Daze.

 Some history on me….

I fell into, then out of, then back into photography.

   I grew up in rural southern Maryland and attended the University of Maryland where I majored in Political Science.   While in college I assisted my dad, who had retired from the State Police, with wedding and portrait photography.  My dad’s teachings in photography were traditional.  He on the Hasselblad and me on the Canon 35mm is how I learned the basics.  He was awesome at his craft and a great teacher.
    I also learned that wedding and portrait photography was A LOT of hard work. I did not want to do that for a living so I fell out of photography after graduating from college. I was a shutterbug from then…..taking snapshots of family events and vacations; nothing special due to lack of inspiration.
    A few years ago I changed careers, from middle management into the I.T. field, which I love. Around that time two changes occurred nearly simultaneously: I moved and I discovered photography again. More specifically I discovered the powerful software tools that were available to “bring a photograph to life”.

      I moved from Cary, NC to Clayton, NC.-from the ‘suburbs’ to the ‘country’. I was fascinated by what I found Left Behind in this area. Barns, farmhouses, industries, belongings, memories….all Left Behind.  I grabbed my camera and started taking pictures of what I found fascinating.  In the spring of 2012 I seriously started taking photos and I have not stopped!   

   The technology side of me became inspired by photos I found on the internet and that is when I discovered HDR Photography. High Dynamic Range Photography is perfect for my technical brain and My Vision. It allows me to fully capture what I saw when I took that shot. It really brings it to life.   My process usually involves taking 3 (or more) bracketed photos of the same shot: one under-exposed, one normal exposed, and one over-exposed. I then use powerful software tools to merge the three images into one. I will then tweak the photo anywhere from 1-2 hours until I get it ‘right’, until I say “Yes! That is what I saw!”  If I do it correctly, the colors are vibrant, the shadows are dark and the highlights are bright.
     I make limited edition prints at a local photo lab on archival paper which uses 100 year archival ink. I matte and frame my pictures at home…. while listening to Heavy Metal and singing off key…which is a whole other story.

    Thank you for joining me as I explore and record what was Left Behind

The other side of me? LOVES tinkering and building PCs. I am a power user and I like to get the most of my PC for gaming and my apps (Photoshop, Photomatix, ect..). I also enjoy helping people with their computers and providing technical support.
