So yesterday marked the 9th year of us being “officially” together. We’ve been together-together forever. She’s a very good sport – letting me turn the camera on her for this one shot. Technically, the saturation of the Velvia film doesn’t seem to lend itself to portraiture. Skin tones are a little unreal looking. I was lucky that I had a subject that makes every picture beautiful.

Sometimes we just pick a road we’ve never been down and start driving.

A Sense of Place; A Sense of Self

You want to get a good look at yourself. You stand before a mirror, you take off your jacket, unbutton your shirt, open your belt, unzip your fly. The outer clothing falls from you. You take off your shoes and socks, baring your feet. You remove your underwear. At a loss, you examine the mirror. There you are. You are not there.
