A bit of randomness today, pulling from my archives.

A visit to Gartner’s Meat Market at the end of 2010 (love that place, best pepperoni ever!)…

And my first picture of the New Year (we love popcorn!).

shades of silver


here are some scenes from my life lately… including a walk in my neighborhood, my grandparents house, the goose hollow inn, pinstripes bar, and AMF Pro 300 Lanes on Powell Blvd).

i’ll be shooting a lot more black & white film this coming winter.

i love the grain and how i differently think about shooting.

life seems timeless in shades of silver.

yet time whooshes on by.



A couple of weekends ago, I went to a concert on the lawn at Edgefield; with a couple of really awesome friends of mine. It was the perfect summer day and we had a fantastic time drinking Ruby and listening to the tunes of Ray Lamontagne and David Gray. It was one of the best shows I’ve been to in a while.

i have two somewhat opposing food goals at the moment. i want to cook  & eat-in more but i also want to try some new-to-me restaurants around town. i think i can do both simultaneously. why not, right?

so, dear friends & fellow food lovers, i have a small favor to ask of you.

please share with me your favorite meal of late. if you made it yourself, what was the dish? do you mind sharing the recipe? if you ate it in a restaurant, tell me where and the details of the dish.

black & white

whenever i shoot with black & white film, my mind has to adjust. so when i first started this roll, all i could see was shapes and textures.

i have more shots to share over the next couple of days but i figure it’s best to start at the beginning… start with the basics.
