check out my work on my website-
and keep up with me on my new blog-
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.
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.

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.
