This piece can be seen as an example for a custom drawing here at my Etsy shop. If you know anyone with a special occasion coming up, or just want to get a jump on the holiday season, a custom portrait is a fantastic gift idea that will be cherished for generations. More size/subject options coming soon!

Old/New - B&W film.

As it turns out, all photo-lab's are not created equal. (lesson learned)

Here are a few leftover's from Tennessee + shots from around the house. Summer is treating us beautifully, but the heat has moved any running to late in the evening. We're planning to seek out water of some kind on our upcoming vacation for some relief!

I have a few drawings/mixed-media pieces in the works right now. I'll be posting as they're finished up.

Canon T70 - B&W Photography

We just returned home from a week-long vacation in Tennessee. It had been three months since we had been able to choreograph time together with our friends, Matt and Jennifer, so I'm glad we were able to sneak away for this unofficial vacation. We had a wonderful time that went by too quickly as usual, and left us repeating our routine wish of: "if only we lived next door".

Hopefully our next visit will take place in a more timely fashion.

Here are a few shots from the trip, taken with a salvaged 35mm. Sadly, this was the first time I had had film developed since the 90's. You'd have thought it was the first real film that the clerk at the film processing counter had seen in her life.

Either way, I'm having a lot of fun with the camera and hope these scans do the prints justice. More to come as things, ya know, develop.
