Film for a while

Film for a while

I know I have said this before but I love shooting a roll of film and forgetting about it.  You can find such lovely surprises.  In this case I found some really lovely personal photos as well as some of the images for this post.  While they are not the most amazing...

Fresh and Focused

I hope everyone took some time off at the end of the year and was able to spend time with family and loved ones.  I was able to take a little more than 2 weeks off which was really needed.   The new year is here so it’s time to shake off the holiday attitude and...
Unproductive Weekend

Unproductive Weekend

I had an unproductive weekend, sort of.  Netflix just launched in Japan last week.   It’s a little hard to say that since I worked on Saturday but stay with me.   As someone who tries to be as productive as possible at all times it’s embarrassing to say I...
