“The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.”

$5 print sale

20130606-143017.jpg

Hey friends,

Happy friday! I’m having a $5 print sale over on my instagram account, right now.

They are 5 x 5″ prints of my film work (you may see a couple of 5 x 7″ in there too though). The prints are more beautiful in person, all printed professionally on lustre paper.

Don’t we all need more art in our lives and on our walls? Well, you can’t beat this price. And if you snatch up two or more, I will include free shipping anywhere in the USA. See the deal just got sweeter!

Have a great weekend.

a little springtime walk

during mid april and early may, we had some damn great weather here in portland.

if you know much about our weather, you know that we are blessed with a lot of rain, (almost) all the time. so weeks of sun are rare, awesome, and also, a bit worrisome. if you have been playing attention to the weather patterns over the years, you may have noticed things, they are a-changin. and not just in portland. all over the world. i believe that global warming is much more than a figment of anyones imagination. i believe it is happening here and now. so i get concerned when we get too much sun in what is usually one of the rainier seasons we have. but at the same time, not much i can do about it when it happens other than get out and enjoy it.

and so i do. here’s a handful of images from a sunny spring time walk, on my way to meet some friends. i did not even bring a jacket, it was around 80 degrees out!

the portland tram

Back during spring break, Cal, Josh & I went for a ride on the Portland tram. It was the first time for all of us. It was fun, an little excursion. I had also never been to OHSU’s campus on the hill before, it’s really beautiful up there. We were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day in March.

Here are a couple images I made along the way with my Polaroid Spectra and some Impossible Project PZ680 film.

See you next week!

putting the sun in sunday

i took these all last sunday.

you see, i had heard that morning that my twin baby nephew’s had just been born. i wasn’t able to go visit them until the next day so i decided to head out and enjoy the january sunshine.

one hour later, one phone call with my other sister-in-law (we gushed about the babies, anxious to meet our sweet new nephews), and a roll of ektar 100 later, i headed home.

i was happy with myself for seizing the moment and enjoying the sun on that chilly afternoon.

i just spent this evening, scanning these babies on my new scanner. not sure i did as good as the lab but oh well. it’s fun to see the images come to life this way and to have such control.

i hope your sunday night is just as lovely as mine. see you next week!

the crackle and the warmth

November 18 was our first fire in our fireplace. I can’t tell you how excited I was to hear it, see it, and smell it but even more so to feel it.

I grew up in houses that had fireplaces, my parents were quite fond of them. Heck, it was a christmas morning tradition. But as an adult, I haven’t thought much about having one. This apartment that we moved into in June just happens to have one. We love it. We have actually rearranged our living room since this occasion just so we can see the fire while sitting on the couch and watching TV. It’s so much more pleasant than commercial breaks…
