With a new year I’m re-dedicating myself to my blogging efforts which took something of a backseat to other efforts about the middle of last year. So let’s get things rolling, yes?


Hello. I’m Desmond, a photographer and writer from the Pacific Northwest. Photographically I have a somewhat old school aesthetic and a real love for black and white images, on the literary side I write genre fiction.

I am a strong proponent and ardent user of Free Open Source Software (FOSS) because of the opportunities it provides to build a community between developers and users.

Since 2005 I have used Linux exclusively as my operating system and KDE is my current desktop environment. All the content you see created by me was done using FOSS software.

Aside from the photographs posted on this blog you can find more of my visual work at my artspan site, on my tumblr, and at flickr. My writing can be found at my writing site.


Without Further Ado…
