I love the city I live in. I’m pretty sure I’ve made that abundantly clear by now. Sometimes I just want to shout it from the rooftops though. Maybe it’s not so much the city itself but what it represents to me. Don’t get me wrong, Cleveland is awesome. We’re definitely a lot more cool

shackman multishot 102 – part two

Last month I shared a little about my newest camera, the shackman multishot 102, which was an incredible gift from a reader. I am LOVING this thing. I’m only a few packs of film in but it’s easily one of my favorite cameras. It’s biggest downfall is that it’s a pretty awkwardly shaped camera that

Salton Sea of the Midwest // on film

Back in March Jeff, Jason and I discovered a former vacation spot beside a lake that was full of abandoned trailers. That day I shot with both my pentax k1000 and my 60D (…and my land camera because what can I say, I apparently love to juggle cameras.) I posted the digital photos right away

on the tracks // on film

The weather around these parts is finally warming up – and actually staying warm which means I’m getting back to being outside every single chance I get.
