soxiante-dix-sept: Some Sort Of Magic Happens

Kodak Tri-X
Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
September 2011

     This has to be one of my favorite photos I have ever taken. Tri-X has a way of making this world appear even more beautiful than it is - if that's possible. How does photography do this? I've been reminded of it's mystery over and over since beginning my Darkroom Photography class this month. Yes, I understand that it's pure science, but I have to believe that somewhere in between the camera taking in the light of a moment and the chemicals reproducing it in negative form, some sort of magic happens.

soixante-quatorze: The Things We Do

Fuji Provia (Expired)
Ensign Peak, Salt Lake City, Utah
December 2011

Life can feel so complicated.

We make it that way.

Wrap ourselves up in things that aren't real.

                                                                 And forget.

About what is.
Like dancing.
Leaving your house without a destination.
Looking at those you love.
       Really looking.

Things that remind you.
Or make you remember.
                                              That you are in fact human

. . .

Here's to a year of remembering
who we are.

soixante et onze: Adieu 2011, C'est Fini

This is what my life looked like in 2011.
This is what I looked like.
What my friends looked like.
What my family looked like.
What the earth looked like.
What happiness looked like.
What love looked like.
