Camping in Mendocino

We went on a camping trip in July and it was pretty perfect. It was far enough away that we felt disconnected from Sacramento and there was no cell service for most of the trip… which was amazing. This has been a very busy work season so I relished the chance to literally disconnect and…

Nikon FE test

I acquired this gorgeous 1970s Nikon FE a few years back from a family member but never had the chance to use it. Anyway I dug it out recently, along with my treasure trove of other film cameras, and I’m working on a project that is film exclusive. I’m really excited to get back into real…

About a Look…

Things sure look different, huh. Let’s talk about this new look… I have been craving to change up the look & feel of my site.
