old, crumby 4x5s

I recently had my darkroom locker in my building bolt cut opened since I had not known the combination for a year now (thanks, Jon!). In it lay boxes of unused darkroom paper, negative sleeves, clothes line clips and a mound of 4×5 film sheets from before I knew how to scan into a computer. Not only are they dusty and scratched, but for the first months of my using the 4×5 camera, I was loading the film backwards: making them way too underexposed. With a little help from nostalgia, I’m really liking their look, at least as memories.


Isn’t my boyfriend adorable?

Better Represent!

Last weeks the This American Life radio show took place in dear old Georgia.

Even though most of the story telling went on in middle or north Georgia, it’s still worth a listen (There would obviously be way better material if they were to head further south, but we’ll take what we are given).
Just click on the map.

On a similar note, I have yet to check this book out at the library but, Shelby Lee Adams documentary series on Appalachian Lives looks like something that I will pour over for many hours once I get my hands on a copy.


My future kitchen, if I’m lucky.

On the other side

Well, I have successfully made my first 1,050 pictures with my new tool of trade at my first solo wedding gig.

In short, Drew and Ellen’s marriage celebration was perfectly passionate and earnest. Stay tuned for photographic evidence.

Not just a cake the real thing

In today’s news:


Ok, its in the mail from somewhere, NY to my door.

And then i shall achieve ultimate coolness like Obama did when he picked one up

I will deliberate intensively as to what its first picture to make will be.

From Pawleys Island

I’ve been getting my summer beach time in on Pawleys Island, SC with my aunts and tiny cousins.

Is there anything cuter in the world?

For love

Bernardo came to visit from Tampa where he is working hard these days, check it.
We have not picnicked together in our near 4 years together so I thought it was about time. We made it as iconic and picnic perfect as possible. I made everything the hard (better) way and most veggies came from the forsyth farm market the day before.

on the menu:
lemon pepper chicken and swiss sandwiches
potato salad with dill
corn on the cob
half sour pickles
blueberry cobbler
Poor mans sangria (red wine and 7-up)
three dollar flowers from Kroger


Everyone should try making these pickles some time, just search half sour pickles in the inter web. Delicious.
