the rob norton

Welcome to my website. Whether you've dropped by to take a look at some of my photographs, some of my, most likely short lived, and painfully unfunny, comics or simply because I mentioned it to you enough times that you thought it only right to at least have a look once - well, thanks for taking the time. My hope is that my website can be a sort of digital scrapbook for any and all half baked creative ideas, while also serving as a portfolio of some of my favorite work. However, as I'm just getting this project off the ground, it is presently more like a large book with only one chapter - and a rather lousy one at that, but keep checking back, for this will someday resemble an entire lousy book - or my name is not the rob norton.

The Writing

On Time Flying

*Spoiler Alert*

for some it might not seem clear, for others it will already be inescapable but for those few who might be shocked I’ve decided to put a spoiler warning on this post – so for those few: don’t read any further! For those who have continued, and i know that all of you are simply spammers who are not reading anything at all but who continue to compliment me on the “fascinating subject matter” that “needs to be explored more deeply by intelligent voices like(my)self”, whilst posting links to unimaginable websites with exotic Polish or perhaps Sri Lankan etc etc names but whom regardless still deserve fair warning in the form of a spoiler alert, it must be mentioned that time does indeed fly.

Watching Contact

*Spoiler Alert*

Tom Skerrit and Jodi Foster are in a fight to see which one of them will represent earth to an Alien population. Skerrit wins because he believes in God. It seems like that will have to change. But I don’t know how. They nickname their robot Elmer. Does that mean anything?

It was the religious nut with a bomb that helped make the change. It seems. But the robot Elmer died as well. Sadly. Ah ha. There’s a second one. Machine. That didn’t blow up. Jodi can ride that one to the stars! Everyone seems ok with this development. Secret second machine and Jodi gets to go with no second vote. If she blows up I can watch another movie at least. I’d like to mashup this movie with Nell. Now that’s a movie I’d watch.

The Photography

Photography is my specialty, specifically residential and commercial real estate photography which you can see more of by clicking here, but this website is dedicated to my other photography. The sort you'd usually have to pay large sums of money to see in some of the worlds odder galleries.

Whether it's mundane household articles, animals; stuffed or otherwise, toys; stuffed or otherwise or simply unstuffed unmundane non household articles, the rob norton has got you covered with a myriad of photographs of everything & nothing and most things in between.

So take a look around the site, we are constantly updating our content, and see what it is you most dislike but before you leave make sure to take a look at some of my most recent photography projects right here.

UPDATE: Good news the rob norton groupies! New photo content will be coming over the next few months. It's our special way of saying thanks for your constant devotion. And has nothing to do with work being slow over those couple of months.

The Comics

Catch up on The Adventures of Mr. Nowhere, The Unfortunate Circumstances of Bob BuGung's Life, as seen through the eyes of his cat Perpetual Baby and, of course, The Ongoing Conflict of Zombie & Ghost. All right here in the comics.

Selling a business can be stressful. When it came time to bring in a photographer, Rob Norton understood the process we were going through and made the shoot a breeze. When we saw the photos we were even happier. I'd recommend his services to anyone.

-Sam Welke, Bar Owner

I have always admired Rob Norton for his affable manner and wonderful photography. I've even enjoyed his writing. But these comics are truly puzzling. Are they supposed to be funny? I would stop doing those, if I were him. I find them to be just terrible.
