You guys are going to have an amazing life together. I can tell. I like to call my self an expert now. I know, i's a gift. But you guys have it. Hope I get to hang with you both again soon. Salute!

A Year In Adventures, 2013

Film was my first love. Although I live and work in a digital world my heart still yearns for it. It gives me satisfaction in the present moment and its an escape from the frenetic-hyper life I live in. I love the physicality of it, loading it, hearing the shutter. But mostly my love for film is an intangible one. It’s the special way that the world looks when captured on film. There is a quality to the light, the colors, the grain, the blur that varies from one film type to another. Where my digital cameras are a rational choice and decision, my film camera is an emotional one. And it will always be that way. Honest, fickle, and rewarding.

These photographs were taken on various trips last year. I feel so lucky that I get to travel. That I have a wonderful family to travel with. What else can one ask for. Hope you enjoy!
