take us back to essentials

q: why are you obsessed with film?

a: we now hear the richness of vinyl records because we can compare them to cds. in the same way, the digital camera's crisp, clean images help us recognize the complexity and warmth of film. it's exacerbated when you shoot with one of our fly. we do not always want a faithful representation of reality. sometimes we yearn for a dream.

something i'd like to be good at

the sucky thing about shooting film is that you have only 36 (or 24 or 12) exposures before you need to reel it all up and pop in another roll! i was reminded of this today when i was at "concert in the park". i left the house with just a few exposures left and the roll i thought would be my spare turned out to be an already-spent roll that i shot last week!

luckily, i had my rebel with me! you know, "just in case." and "just in case" happened, so... yeah! i don't know where i'm going with this...

but in my dream i slew the dragon

i have seven books checked-out from the library. i don't know why i thought i should take so many. maybe i thought if i did't take them now, they'd be gone next time around. i'm not sure, really. i feel obligated to read the first few pages of each book before getting too involved with one or two.

i'll stand on the bow and feel the waves come crashing

i have this idea that someday i'll start titling my work "untitled #1".
the first piece will be "untitled #1 #1", the second will be "untitled #1 #2",
and so on and so forth. i sure hope nobody else has thought of this,
i'd sure hate to be the copier of such
a stupid idea.
