The PWP Has Moved

Hi everyone. The Puddlewonder Press has moved to puddlewonderpress.com. Please look for me here:

Media Posting: Liver and Onions

Haven't made a film in a while, but had the chance recently. As part of a campaign to help kids recognize and celebrate their gifts, we put out a call for spoken-word poems. This one was written by James Midgley, to the prompt of sudden beauty, the idea that sometimes what is most beautiful and powerful in us is not the most obvious to see, but profound when discovered. Filmmaking is fun.

Photography Posting: Industrious Montreal, from the Train

These were taken again on Amtrack's Adirondack route, from NYC to Montreal. As we got close to Montreal, I started to notice all the industrial structures and started shooting them. As usual the interesting thing for me is how the movement with the long shutter speeds makes things look sketched, as they must once have been imagined.

Photography Posting: NYC Softly, Tryptichs

Took these shots in the summer while spending a week in New York City. The first two sets were taken on West 44th, I think, and the last set was taken from the Highline one night we were visiting with some former students. I thought I would try arranging them in tryptichs, going into soft focus, like closing your eyes for the night.

G'night New York.

Adirondack by the Hudson

We recently took the Amtrak on the Adirondack Route from New York City to Montreal. Partway along, a guide got onboard to work for a tour group that was boarding a stop or so later. While he was waiting, he told us that it was the oldest still-operating railway line in North America, and that it was one of the 10 most beautiful train routes in the world. I can understand why.

These shots were taken along the Hudson River, which seemed either to have been a little flooded or to encompass some swampy woodland. The trees along the tracks grew up out of the water, combining two of my favourite photographic elements.
