Disregard this image. Compiling photos and reading a small volume of Ikkyu’s poetry. I’ve somehow carried this slip of a book around for a long time. It never gets old. I don’t think the attempt at typography really works, but I am too lazy to replace it at the moment.

Lately has been busy. Still getting out over the last few weekends to wander. Here’s the most recent transmission.

The winter streets seem right in high contrast ice and pavement, black smoke and burnt out sky.

Lately, I’ve been watching the wires. They seem make their own compositions across the city. Out where I live they bury those suckers just like good yuppies should.

Walking with James on one of the coldest days yet, feet numb and fingers dead, we notice flakes of paint and rusted stairways. What exactly are we doing outside?

monochrome is good for you

Is shooting black and white kinda the equivalent if “eating your vegetables” for photographers? And is doing it on film different from converting a raw file that doesn’t work in color over to the dark side? These are things I’ve been wondering as I shot through a few black and white rolls over the last few weeks.

I was always reluctant to shoot BW as I thought color kind of my shtick, and justified my aversion with the expense, inconvenience and ability to convert any color film to BW in Photoshop. The last BW film I shot was when traveling Europe five years ago. After relocating to a new apartment a little further from my favorite photo labs I started to consider doing some of my own development, and as BW is a much simpler affair than color I thought I should shoot it a bit more. That and some recent work by a good friend inspired me to load in more of the stuff.

I’ve enjoyed my few weeks sans color. And have found myself focusing more on composition and varied tones of light. Shooting in BW from that start (not converting later) is making me look in a new way, to see photos where I might not have before. It’s a stripped down process, and I find myself focusing more on the essentials of the frame. Here are some outtakes.

rainy day

a rainy weekend, a half broken slr, blurry double exposed film, on and on… sometimes the days just blend.

Currently outside Korea. Returned to Florida from a financially disastrous travel binge. Will be posting various reflections from the journey while in limbo.

Here’s somewhat of a 35mm overview brought to you by the ol’ trusty toy camera.
