Film is Alive

One thing about the social distancing this week, it definitely gives me a reason to stay home. Organizing the 32,000+ digital photos onto a hard drive was a great start (not done yet). But there was also the film negatives and scans that I needed to do something about. Hmm…

The Natural Cycle of Things OR Why We Need Winter

Winter is back in my corner of the world. I woke up to see snow flurries, blanketing the neighborhood in a soft, small layer of white flakes. These days, when it snows, it tickles me with a bit of nostalgia and I welcome how it quiets things down. But is

Flower Power
