Short Stories

Many years ago, D.K. Wall was recounting an event to a group of co-workers who were all laughing riotously. One of the audience spoke up and said, "I wish I had been there."

"But you were," D.K. protested.

"Yes, but you remember it better than I do," she replied.

And that is is the art of telling short stories.

Words are not the only way to tell a story. A camera can capture the same raw emotions as a pen.

Many of the photographs feature the Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding area, the home of the author.

Note that many of the photographs are also available for sale - in virtually any size, material, and framing - by visiting the author's Fine Art America store.

Timelapse Photography

While stories capture a period of time, a photograph captures but a moment in time. Timelapse photography merges the two techniques together to tell a story over time using only photographs.

By taking dozens or hundreds of photographs at a time and then stitching them together, a timelapse photographer can share the beauty of movement in clouds or water and the shift of light and shadow in sunrise and sunset.
