Sunshine State

After readership figures reached an all time low, I thought I should post some more recent photos to get a bit more up to date. I’ve been dabbling in other photographic mediums and thus the blog has fallen aside a bit lately. I do pull my trusty Mamiya out now and again to go for an outing in my home state. Herewith, random adventures from the first half of the year.

Beach houses

A beach house typology of sorts.

Back in Blighty

London may be synonymous with England to most outside the UK, but I spend my time far away from the big smoke. Living in an English seaside town is like living in a time warp.

Sepia-hued days in winter and Kodachrome in summer.

These photographs are from one afternoon, and I feel there’s a risk, photographing here, of producing a Martin Parr-esque view of the place. Although I love his work, his cynical eye makes me feel rather uncomfortable, so I’m going to try to produce work that shows a bit of empathy.

Hale’iwa. My friends said the structure was ugly.





Confession: I straightened some horizons.

UPDATE: More photos from the last roll.

Gone Surfing

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I have a good excuse.

I’ve been learning how to surf and scuba dive in Hawai’i. And attending one of my best friend’s wedding. It was a beautiful day in an idyllic place, where the bride and groom were surrounded by people who love them. What more could you want?

Until I get the film scanned, here’s something from the archives. I couldn’t and wouldn’t surf in Bolinas, Northern California, last summer – it ranks in the top 10 beaches for shark attacks. But that didn’t stop most people.

Beautiful Swimmers

Beautiful Swimmers they know how to move
Slidin’ cross the water like a steel guitar
Beautiful Swimmers stay in the groove
Riding constant currents near and far

-Jimmy Buffett

My first foray with the new Mamiya 6. Clearly I have some horizon issues but with practice I hope that will improve!

Triple threat

A perfect triple exposure. If using this back to get these effects was more predictable, I’d keep it. But triple exposures are not usually the goal.

Same roll of film, same trip, different countries. I must have had a theme, but didn’t know.

I know which one I’d prefer to be.
