I’m finally sorta getting the hang — maybe — of my #zeiss Ikoflex Ic #tlr. And yet, my favorite image so far was an accidental #doubleexposure of a raspberry bush and this gorgeous home. Everything about this camera and analog photography, down to using an external light meter, has been a massive learning curve, but fun. I love a challenge. #kodakportra160 #film #120film
It’s finally October! I really #fall for #autumn. In #Ravello #Italy, I found a garden where they were growing these #pumpkins on raised trellises that make covered walkways. 2016
Happy first day of #fall. I’m ready for lots of rust red and orange everything. Thinking back to a lovely October I spent in #italy a couple years ago. #autumn #leaves #canon 5D MkIII 55mm f/4.0 1/125s ISO 250
I love the rusty hues of this old building in #ravello against the lively blue-green Tyrrhenian Sea. Standing over a vista shared by people thousands of years before me was spiritual. #canon #italy
May God bless America, and may we use those blessings to bless the world. “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge.” #911 #neverforget #psalm91
Today, we feel the hole and remember who are missing. Let us fill the gap with grace and empathy for all who suffer. Thank you to those who protect us. #911 #neverforget
Canopied vineyards on the hilltop town of #ravello #italy on the #amalficoast. This is the one grape experience during that trip that didn’t come in a bottle. #wine
Italian commute. This is one of the moments most crystallized in my memory from my #italy trip in 2016. Walking the hillsides of #positano in lush #fall evening light. And did you notice the @louisvuitton seat? This one may actually make it onto the wall of my house next time I get into a printing mood. #canon MarkIII 24mm f/7.1 1/160 sec ISO 400
Goin’ into the week like ...
One last image from my #Hawaii trip from August two years ago. This was the welcome luau for the @spartan race at @kualoaranch on #oahu, where I ran my first #spartanbeast. It was a half marathon up the side of a volcano, and there was so much cow poop on the course — not sure which part was worse.
90mm f/4.0 1/30 sec ISO 640
Water, fire, steam, and rock, all of them in motion as the earth groans through growing pains. This is a #lava spout hitting the Pacific at the edge of The Big Island two years ago. A great side trip with my old school friend @mandylemes and her awesome family. 130mm ISO1000 f/6.3 1.3sec #hilohawaii #bigisland #hawaii #volcano #kilauea
Tide and time waits for no one, but I loved sitting on #Hawaii’s Big Island watching the water fill little reef pools, and letting my schedule get washed away. #Kona
The #electricos of #lisboa get even more magical as evening descends, and their illumination warms the streets. #lisbon #portugal #funicular #chiado #streetcar
When the beach traffic here in Santa Monica gets bad, I think back to the lovely #electricos of #lisboa that turn commuting into time travel. #lisbon #portugal
The other half of my set of #Chicago photos hanging in my home office from my first trip there years ago. #nightphotography
An old favorite from my first trip to #Chicago, circa 2010(?). I rarely print my photos, but this and my next post hang in my office. #nightphotography
Can you have breakfast at Tiffany’s if you’re in Little Italy? Surprisingly little #streetart in #manhattan, but I loved this find by @tristaneaton #newyork
#brooklyn is more than #manhattan’s shadow. There is a world to explore on either side of the #brooklynbridge. #newyork
Taking in my first-ever roll of 120 film to get developed. Shooting with a medium-format camera has been quite the learning curve. I hope the results will be worth sharing.
A whirlwind 3-hour #London excursion during an overnight layover in 2015. I just stayed on the tube until I saw stop names that sounded promising. #towerbridge #nightphotography #england
Even though we’re just now getting winter weather in SoCal, my mind is warming to #spring and this shot from #sanfrancisco from back in 2013. #flowers
