I’ve had this blog for 6 years. I was initially very active but over the years, I lost my steam. This month is the first time I have posted in over a year. The last three years, it’s been rather quiet here. Continue reading six years ago
i’m getting back to shooting and cooking regularly. it feel good and right. i’m more and more at home with myself lately. learning to really love yourself is such a lifelong journey.
hello out there.
i’m learning more and more every day to appreciate the present. this is one of the things that I have always enjoyed about shooting film.
i’ve gotten away from shooting and sharing film these last few years. i am coming back to it, back to this space, and back to flickr.
baby steps. here we go. rise and shine, world.

i just got a scanner at home so i thought i would share a couple of instant photos that i took this morning (and a few of their iPhone counterparts).
these flowers at my kitchen table were my muse.

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…
Both shots were made with my Polaroid Colorpack II using Fuji FP-100c film. The first shot was made in late-June in Nelahem Bay after a big crabbing adventure. The second shot was made about mid-April along the Springwater Corridor.
Goodbye, ‘roid week! I loved you and can’t wait until next year to do it all again. In the meantime, I think I am gonna post more of these instants here on my blog soon. Most of these have many more photos that go with them so you will likely see them again but with more of a story. I have been so inspired by this week. I can’t wait to get out and shoot more creatively for next year.
I also love that my new blog theme lets my photos be a lot larger. If possible, expand your browser and enjoy a grander view of my photos. They are set for 800px wide now. Not too shabby.
See ya next week! I got more in store for this space then.
The first shot was made with my Polaroid Spectra and expired Polaroid Softtone film on April 25, 2012 at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Portland. The second shot was taken about a week earlier along the Springwater Corridor with my Polaroid Colorpack II and Fuji FP-100c film.
