Joshua Tree Adventure

Last fall we finally finished building out my art studio, meaning I could finally start unpacking all of my boxes and set up my negative scanners. YAY. Well, then winter hit and things got crazy, then I got busy with graphic design work, then I fractured my ribs and couldnt do much other than lay around, and then the temps reached a high of 110F, making my studio too hot to work in. Well today we dropped to 87F and life is good.

I have been scanning and organizing all of my old negatives from the past 2 years. For a belated birthday, early 13 year anniversary trip in October 2016, we adventured through Joshua Tree National Park and Salton Sea, one of my favorite places to go when I want to just get away. Here are a few of the photos i took with my Lomo LCA+ and cross-processed slide film.

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.

Florida Beaches

Instant photos from our trip to Georgia for my brothers wedding back in mid September. One of the best things about our annual visits is our beach fishing adventures in Florida. It reminds me of the times spent with my family when I was a kid. 

Photos taken with Impossible 600 Film and a Polaroid 600 Box Camera.
