  4. I photographed my friend’s Bridal Shower last Saturday. This is her, her mum, and three of her bridesmaids. Beautiful smiles, huh?! Anyway, I’ve actually never photographed an event like this before (not with the intent of photographing everyone and trying to get key moments, etc). It was a big learning curve and just as hard as I expected, but all in all it was a great day and a great experience both for memories with my friend and for my photography. I swore to her up and down I’d get all the images to her yesterday, but there are so many! And as we all know editing takes a while… and most of us try to be perfectionists. 
Oh, the world of digital… Love-hate relationship.  I photographed my friend’s Bridal Shower last Saturday. This is her, her mum, and three of her bridesmaids. Beautiful smiles, huh?!

  7. Oh Kelly… I couldn’t ask for a better girl-friend
and Jesus, look at her FACE
I’m so grateful that she was here for me when I got the news of my dear friend Rick passing away last weekend. I don’t know how I’d’ve done it without her.  Oh Kelly… I couldn’t ask for a better girl-friend

    It’s cheaper to just get a new one, and I plan to do just that as soon as I can! And yes, I am of course still interested in film :):)

  11. I really love shooting my digital camera because of it’s instant gratification factor but I really miss the satisfaction of film photography. My idea has been to shoot film alongside my digital, though I’ve barely done so. I use a Pentax 645 but it’s heavy and not convenient. I miss my rolleiflex. I miss my Olympus OM setup. 

    Then, last week, I sent in the little amount of film I have been shooting - a carefully shot dozen rolls over the course of about three months - to the lab I use in upstate New York. The envelope I sent it in arrived at my lab with nothing in it. 

    poof, three months of work gone. 

    I’ve called the appropriate people but the envelope showed up with a slit in it- Whether from some sorting machine or someone stealing my film, who knows. I really hope that someone along the line realizes the importance but I’m not holding my breath.

    Thus is the last straw to deciding to leave behind my film cameras and film in my storage space. Not forever, but for now. It feels like betraying everything I’ve spouted about for ten years but I keep reminding myself it’s not the camera, it’s the person using it.

  15. Sometimes I get down on myself, and sometimes I start looking through my images. Then I don’t feel so bad at all. 
ugh, that open horizon, the sand in my toes and the waves pulling at me just as my heart yearns to go out there and see what’s beyond that line between sea and sky…
California beach, 2013
The first time I went to California it was a long time dream of chasing the sun down and all I wanted was to put my feet in another ocean. That time, instead of dreaming of Europe, I dreamt of Asia…  Sometimes I get down on myself, and sometimes I start looking through my images. Then I don’t feel so bad at all.
