Japan 2008

I have been going through all my old negatives in order to add new (old) work and to refresh some of my galleries. Mostly because I have 100's of rolls of Black and White that I never share for some reason. I am also scanning all of my new negatives (from the past two years), hoping i have some fresh new work to share and put into my online shop.

We bought a house 2 years ago and I that and graphic design work has pretty much consumed me. Here is my gallery from my trip to Japan back in 2008 with one of my besties Rebecca. It was an amazing and unforgettable adventure. I know I will never have the experience again, as she was pretty much fluent in Japanese and brought me to all of her favorite places. She even held an umbrella for me as much of the trip it was raining. GAH friends are the best!! We spent 2 weeks touring Osaka, Kobe, Nara, and Kyoto.

***Some of my favorites are available as prints or mounted on woodblocks in my shop.

New Orleans on My Mind

New Orleans is my favorite city. We lived there, just a few blocks from City Park, until I was about 10, before moving to the Pacific NW for my mothers work. I was upset about it for a very long time growing up. Now as an adult, I still live in the PNW, Portland, OR to be exact, and I couldn't be happier. New Orleans is always on my mind though. My husband and I go back every year and spend a whole week eating and exploring the city, but mostly eating. 

With today being the first day of Mardi Gras, Kings Day, and Fat Tuesday just around the corner, I am quite nostalgic. I spent most of my day cooking, Red Beans and Rice (quinoa actually), hush puppies and a king cake for dessert. The left overs of the king cake will surely go to work tomorrow with my husband as I would eat the whole thing if it stayed in the house.

These are just a few of my photos of New Orleans. One of my favorite things is going shortly after Mardi Gras and seeing all of the beads caught in the trees, and the fences lined with years of collected beads. You can see more of my photos in my self published book, Adventures in Lomography - NEW ORLEANS. Published in 2013. There are also a few of the prints available in my shop, as prints and mounted on woodblocks. 

For those of you not from Nola, but love New Orleans or just plain love cajun food or sweets, stay tuned for more posts between now and Mardi Gras.
