New Year, New...

So....it's been a while.   The last time I came here was in February of 2017, just a little less than a year ago. And to be honest, I was in a bad place. 
   This time last year, I was not myself. I was struggling a lot with feeling lost and not knowing what my place was in life. I felt like I was going to explode without someone to unload the negativity that I was feeling. I was stressed from my job and had just witnessed death for the first time. And most of all, I was just lonely.
   It made me so miserable to think that year after year, I would be feeling like that. I didn't want to feel like that. I didn't want anyone, ever to feel like that.

I used to mess around with my Dad's old Minolta SLRs a few years ago when I was deeply into photography in the same way that I was passionate about a lot of other things that rarely cross my mind nowadays. I even still have my Holga and Diana mini, along with several old disposables that I never did get around to developing. They probably hold dozens of pictures of people, places, and things I've long forgotten about. Film is really just such an expensive habit, these days especially. 

But the real problem with film really isn't the money, because I could stand to start spending more money on bo…

Risky business

Why the fuck you need me? Don't you know how to fly already?


























Lemonade

So I went on a few adventures this month. I wish I had more people close by willing to drop everything and go with me. Last summer was really lonely, so I'm prepared to anticipate it again this year. Anyway, I'm glad that my camera has gotten to see the light of day the past couple weeks. Hopefully the next few months will provide some more little road trips. Enjoy.
