Feeding seagulls.

Turned the leica m9 into a homemade pinhole camera with multiple pinholes.  REALLY interesting results.  Here are just the first two I did.

A picture of myself and my lady on the 4 year anniversary.  I kind of caught her by surprise in this photo.  She has a very intense look on her face.  That is part of what I love about her.  She is so alive and full of intensity and it is all right on the surface for her all the time…I love that about her, she is so close to her feelings and she expresses them in so many different ways.  I see a lot in her eyes here.  After 4 years, we are starting to have some very difficult, challenging, and real conversations.  We both feel a lot of sadness, uncertainty, and gratitude…and there is much to be proud of.

I was at home on a mellow saturday, the light around the house was nice.  I decided to see what it would be like to try and take some interesting flicks of my home space.  I am really interested in the idea of home, space, and how we create an atmosphere around ourselves in the place where we eat, sleep, work, and love.  Here are a few of the first ones…just little corners around my home that I love.  I may just keep this idea going and try to take it as serious as I would any other project.  Why not?

I Underexposed this lovely shot, so this is my desperate attempt to revitalize it in LightRoom.  Such a good one of ‘Detters.

A dad and his son.  Riding up and down an elevator (with windows) at the hospital.  The little boy was singing and babbling about the things he was seeing outside.  They were on the elevator when I got on, and they stayed after I got off.  It was such a vision, I had to snap a quick shot as the doors were closing.  I thought it was beautiful.  To fatherhood.
