Don't BS

It's been three years since I last posted. At some point after that I went through the blog and turned all posts to unpublished.

Honestly, I wasn't sure if I was a pinholer anymore. Honestly,  I didn't know if I was still an amateur photographer. Honestly, I quit everything creative. Honestly, I quit me.

There's no deep soul searching here in this post. I've been so busy trying to make others happy that I forgot to make myself happy.

I'm creative and I love sharing that creativity.

So, with that, I'm knocking the rust off my creative self and this site.

There is a park in Nashville, my hometown, that I visited for the first time recently. It's small, woody, hilly, wet, and filled with tiny pieces of art and junk and artsy junk.

I shot a few images with a Vermeer 6x17 curved plane camera I purchased secondhand  quite a while ago. It's a new camera for me and I haven't shot pinhole in a year or two...excuses.  Regardless, here are a couple of shots.

Fairy house, Portra 400, about 5 minutes
Springhouse Tree, Portra 400, about 5 minutes
Phone shot of my Vermeer in action, and yes, that's a tripod (I was so brash in my youth with my whole "real pinholers don't tripod").

  1. Hi just found your blog, and I'm glad you've chosen to continue writing it, too many alternative photography sites have quit in the last ten years or so. I also got back into film photography a couple of months ago after a long hiatus. To me also it seems to have a lot to do with some deep soul searching. Keep it up!!
