the hours

I had the honor of doing the project, The Hours, again this year.  It was a collective project in which a group of photographers, who met on Flickr, each posted a single image every month, taken during a particular hour of the day. We started in January  with 7am and then moved through the day […]

I added a new film camera, a Canon AE-1,  to my collection in July.   I have forgotten how often I have shot with it already.  It is a great little camera.  Light and easy to take with me.  Here are my favorite five from July. Anytime I capture this handsome man it becomes a […]

Coffee Shop Date, 10 on 10

One way I want to improve my photography this year is to be a better storyteller through my images. I know the only way I can do that is to practice.  Life has taught me that I am horrible at putting deadlines on myself.  I need to be part of a larger whole to keep me accountable. […]
