Ice

Ice

A couple of weeks ago, before we were snowed in for the long haul, I went around my Grandma’s farm and took some photos of the iced-over scenery. As dangerous and inconvenient as ice can be, it makes for some beautiful landscapes.                

A sprinkle of color

A sprinkle of color

During the crazy Columbia winter break 2.0, I abandoned the warmth of the indoors and ventured out into the cold abyss onto my snow-covered back porch. There, I saw a landscape covered in white; even the sky seemed to mirror the absence of color below it. After having to look at nothing but snow for […]

Downtown Mini Series: Post Uno

Downtown Mini Series: Post Uno

My entire life (all 17 years) I have dreamed of escaping the grasp of Columbia; the thought of “getting out” is something I dance around with in my mind and my imagination. Now, before you jump to conclusions and think I am too cynical and narrow-minded, let me justify. Columbia was an amazing town to […]

Show Choir Up Close & Personal

Show Choir Up Close & Personal

Earlier this month, the RBHS show choirs had their premiere performance. Prior to that, they had two rehearsals in full costume and makeup. As an individual on the tech crew, I took the opportunity to go around backstage and take some close-up shots of makeup, costumes and stage props.   By Morgan Berk

Frost Before Thaw

Frost Before Thaw

There is something interesting about the malleable nature of water in any form; solid, liquid, gas. The ease this compound has with molding to any shape, around any form and encompassing countless objects, water stands as a timeless wonder of everyday life. Yet, we look past it as if it were nothing. We don’t really […]

Show Choir from the wings

Show Choir from the wings

During a  Show Choir performance the viewpoint of audience member is dazzling, but when the chance to see the action from backstage is given the greatness of  show grows immensely. I  was lucky enough to get that chance during a City Lights dress rehearsal last Wednesday as they prepared for their season premiere on Thursday. […]

Show Choir Festival Preparation

Show Choir Festival Preparation

Rock Bridge’s show choir season begins full force once the time comes. The week before the Annual Festival, City Lights and Satin N’ Lace face a brutal week of constant practice, use of creativity and aching legs. But, how does all this work pay off? It all begins with the Thursday premiere, the first chance […]

First Snowfall

First Snowfall

Since this past weekend was the first significant snowfall of the year, I figured I should go out and get some pictures, since snow is such a beautiful thing. These first few photos were taken at my church. That tree you see on the left has been my favorite tree for as long as I […]

Simply Black and White

Simply Black and White

I cannot really say much for my work with black and white. I mean, I could ramble for hours about how the contrast of black and white is more sincere to the eye, more mysterious and more entertaining in every way, that would be easy! What I mean is that I’d rather my work do […]

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”  ― Søren Kierkegaard

World travels from Palo Duro, Texas all the way to Rome, Italy, being a military brat has its benefits.  Experiencing  sites like these makes you enjoy all that is given to you.  Knowing others spend their whole lives dreaming of soaring, and here it sits in front of you.  You reflect on your life and […]

DIY Candy Sled

DIY Candy Sled

With the holidays rapidly  approaching I began to realize how gravely behind I was on my Christmas shopping, so in an act of desperation I took to the internet for some inspiration.  Luckily the DIY section on Pintrest held  the perfect and  simple craft I was seeking. Preparing and creating the Candy Sled was such […]

Hanging of the Greens

Hanging of the Greens

Each December at my church, it is tradition to have an evening in which we decorate the sanctuary with wreaths, ornaments, and a Christmas tree. We have come to call this event the “Hanging of the Greens.” This year’s hanging of the greens was this past Tuesday. What you must understand about my church is […]

Christmas Tree Hunting and Then Some.

Christmas Tree Hunting and Then Some.

Tree hunting is not something I’ve enjoyed experiencing during the seemingly countless years of my childhood. By the time I turned 10, my mother invested in a fake tree, keeping the box in a storage closet upstairs, only to pull it out once a year from its dusty fate. By the time I turned 14, […]

Night Light

Night Light

When shooting photos, light is what makes it possible to capture the images. I love night photography because the light source is very isolated which can create a mystical mood. In these images I was experimenting with street lights and how they make a portrait appear haunting. I wanted others to see exactly what I saw in the […]

Boston, Massachusetts.

Boston, Massachusetts.

This may not come across as surprising, but there are obvious differenes between being 14 and 17. The maturity and the want to explore anything around you grows dramatically, deepening your love for being an adventurer, a master of the long walks and grand views. With my hand-me-down riding boots at feet and my cute […]
