Autumn is my muse. I’m enthralled with it every single day. I can’t help but capture it. It’s a film of transition, a lesson in life. Constantly inconsistent. Just when you get comfortable, everything changes. Nature says, don’t stand still… keep going… aging… evolving, like the tide of a river.

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!

a new appreciation

I’ve been looking through my photos a lot lately because I recently saved all my film photos to my phone. I am really enjoying having them all in my hand. It’s also making blogging easier.

These photos are from mid-January, and initially I thought them to be too dark, too boring. Now, here in almost October, I’m finally seeing their beauty.
