Tumblr included me in their Year in Review! I’m one of the most reblogged art/photo tumblrs, apparently. I can’t find myself in there (of course I looked) but thats ok because there is a ton of other awesome tumblrs to see.
Most Reblogged in 2013: Art
Lomochrome Purple Infrared 120 film. Test scan. To be honest not too happy with this film, probably won’t buy it again, but got a few worthwhile shots out of the rolls that didn’t jam the camera. More tk…
More scanner experimenting.
From a few months back. Shot on Fuji X100 with a Nikon SB-800 flash through a softbox I built myself.There is a reason I painted my living room 18% gray.
A series of images of seagulls I shot while walking around the embarcadero.
This will likely become my new headshot. For everything. Wetplate portrait (collaboration between myself and wetplate photog Rob Gibson).
Have been a blur. Lots of life changes, lots of images made, and lots to still process (and that one’s got two meanings you see…).
Consider this a digital sneak peak of a film project I am editing.

The 40 Year Old Photo That Gives Us A Reason To Smile -Karen Grigsby Bates, NPR
"In late July 1973, Joseph Crachiola was wandering the streets of Mount Clemens, Mich.„ a suburb of Detroit, with his camera. As a staff photographer for the Macomb Daily, he was expected to keep an eye out for good feature images — “those little slices of life that can stand on their own.”
The slice of life he caught that day was a picture of five young friends in a rain-washed alley in downtown Mount Clemens. And what distinguishes it are its subjects: three black children, two white ones, giggling in each others’ arms.
"It was just one of those evenings," Crachiola remembers. “I saw these kids — they were just playing around. And I started shooting some pictures of them. At some point, they saw me and they all turned and looked at me and struck that pose that you see in the picture. It was totally spontaneous. I had nothing to do with the way they arranged themselves."
This week, Crachiola, who now lives in New Orleans, posted the vintage photo on his Facebook page.”
