Laryssa Jordyn McCardy has written several novels, short stories, and poems. She aspires to share insightful stories of the influence of identity in Christ through genres of fantasy, suspense, and mystery. Laryssa is currently a college student and resides in Ontario, Canada with her loving family.
When Laryssa called to see if I would help her with the book cover design, I was surprised because I didn't realize she had a talent for writing. I knew she had great artistic ability and was thrilled to read the draft of her first novel. I was pleased to help create the cover art and design as well as photographing her first portrait as a novelist
Seventeen-year-old Rayne reluctantly moves to a rural town. Behind her new home, there is a deep forest, partially untouched by human contact. Most nights, Rayne hears eerie cries through her bedroom window. When she investigates the noise in the dilapidated wood, what she finds is unfathomable.
Soon, this discovery will threaten to disturb the delicate internal balance of her life. She will have to determine where her loyalty lies, but the true question remains:
What lies beneath the pines?

When taking photos I have to decide whether to crop the image or give the viewer the full picture, will it be better as a abstract or scenic photograph?
Everyone views things differently and that is what makes art interesting. You can look at a painting or a photograph and think wow I never would have seen it like that. I am always trying to change how I see things because art is always capturing a different point of view and giving your audience a different perspective.
The abstract impressions found on boats and ships can create a variety of beautiful art photographs that can be displayed in any room in your house or office.
Give someone a gift they have an attachment to, but can't take with them or it just needs to go! A photograph of something that has meaning or a fond memory can be something for life in a photograph.
Want to keep something you just can't keep anymore!
VAN NETTEN PHOTOGRAPHY can capture it for you, send me an email or give me a call.
Capture that special something, It's ok to be a photo hoarder it takes less room.
When you live in a big city you always need to find short cuts to get around faster. So you end up going through back alley's and side streets to get to your destination or finding a new one!
I found this hidden gem meeting a friend and cutting through an alley way, and to my surprise I found this amazing door. At first I wasn't sure and nearly walked by, so I took a shot and hurried to meet my friend then when I got home and took a look at the photo I thought thank god I took the shot.
I could have went back to the location and took the shot after the fact but some times it doesn't work out the same. The lighting could be different something could have moved or there could be a truck or car in the spot. If you see the shot you have to take it or it could be gone.
Post some of your hidden gems, with your name the city or town and share your hidden gems.
It's amazing the things you take for granted, and a photograph can help you appreciate what you can pass by everyday with out appreciating it. But then again you may not, I love the beauty of old architecture and how it can last the test of time.
The night lights in St James Town, I was surprised how beautiful it was.
Ice! Ice! Ice!
