thawing from the freeze
time and illumination
weaknesses and flaws
hidden in shadow
light cannot reach here
the shadow is my dark-side
the wild unknown
the monster inside
a vision in a dream world
dark and exotic
my everyday persona
protects me from you
“Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” ― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” – George Eastman
daylight turns to dusk
When we lived in Evergreen our neighbors got a new puppy. They named her Lily. Lily would come and play with our dog daily. When Mister Bo went missing, Lily would come around the house everyday obviously searching for our lost dog. As time went on, Lily continued to come by more and more often. She was a daily fixture on our porch, and to be honest, I didn’t mind the company. In the midst of the crazy things I have to do as a stay at home parent there are indeed plenty of carefree moments as well. My daughter and I used to take long, meandering walks down this hill and into the meadow below. On this day, Lily heard us coming and sprinted up to join us. A great memory.
I’ve learned everything I know about film photography through google searches and photography text books. I’ve been experimenting shooting with film as of late. It has been a disappointment for the most part. I love the feeling of shooting analog, but I am clumsy with changing and loading film into my cameras. I turned in 7 rolls and 4 of them were blanks, which I am pretty sure is because I had a hard time figuring out how to rewind my film in the camera before opening the back of it. I think my next project with film will be better, as I think I have all the kinks in my flow worked out.
This was shot with a Leica C2 Zoom camera I found on eBay. I thought I would give it a whirl and see what I came up with. Major light leak, and some scratches are showing up on the developed film.
The lessons I have learned so far are that shooting film isn’t cheap, and I have a lot left to learn. It’s about time to explore developing my own film, which is something I have been wanting to learn anyway.

Le frontiere, materiali o mentali, di calce e mattoni o simboliche, sono a volte dei campi di battaglia, ma sono anche dei workshop creativi dell'arte del vivere insieme, dei terreni in cui vengono gettati e germogliano (consapevolmente o meno) i semi di forme future di umanità. (Zygmunt Bauman)
