So anyone who follows my blog or knows me at all, knows I have a little bit of an obsession with photography, especially old photographs and film. This eccentricity started about 4 years ago when I discovered some old metal Kodak film canisters at an antique store. Inside the canisters were mostly what you would […]Read more "Becoming A Memory Keeper"
This week I’ve been back working the dark room. For the last few months I’ve been working a lot with liquid emulsion. So to try something a little different, I decided to try my hand at some lith film again.

They needed a little love, as they obviously hadn’t been taken out of the album I got them in quite some years. The story is still unfolding but I feel confident based on some […]Read more "Finishing The Story: The Details In The Questions"
