Sorry for messing around; I see that things are as I left them with uploading and such. I never was truly happy with how many of my photos looked after I upload them here. They're just off. Oh well. Here's a flower thing. Hope you're all doing just fine.

It's really been over a year since I've posted much here. Life changes - things come and go. I found a new job that I love. And I found out that I needed to get away from some things here. Though that has limited the opportunities I've had to create photos, it doesn't mean I haven't created any.

Most of the time now that means shooting with my phone - but it's more about the camera you have with you than the camera itself.

This is a selection of my favorite photos from over the past year. It has always been my intention to collect these together in the long run, and I finally feel like I've reached the end of this chapter. This selection of images represents the past year or so quite well. Late nights, early mornings. Long days and the moments of serenity that can be found within. Birthdays. Days of sadness. Firsts. Lasts. Beginnings and ends. 

Hope these images find you well.

i love when i see anything from you.  shit sucks sometimes, and shit is awesome sometimes--it's about getting through it without becoming an asshole.

I'm not around here much now. Various reasons. They're not important.

I am here today because +Lee Daniels' kindness and generosity is an example we can all do well to remember every day. I experienced it personally. Her kindness toward me was something so simple - but was one of the most unexpected and touching things anyone has done for me. I don't say that in an exaggerated manner - it genuinely brought tears to my eyes, and not much does.

She and I had many nice conversations during our time here, but were never extremely close. That she would not only pay attention to a dork such as myself, but also take the time to reach out and give of herself so freely despite her own daily struggles speaks to her character - and speaks to why she will never be forgotten.

Story
Tagline
Photographer. Designer. I do a lot of other stuff too.
Introduction
Hello! I'm Nick. I live in Louisville, KY with my awesome wife and our two cats. I'm a photographer by choice & a graphic designer by trade. I've done many things I could have never expected in my life, yet I feel like I have many more to do. I try to do something new every day.

With that in mind, I'm involved in a great number of projects both here on Google+ and on my own; you can check them out here:

A repository of textures I've photographed. All hi-res files are available for personal use under a Creative Commons Non-Commercial license. 

A free, bi-monthly photography magazine in .pdf format, created by +Levi Moore, +Geoff Yale and myself. All the content is by Google+ photographers and for Google+ photographers.
