this will be the first piece I’ve ever sold. admittedly, one of my favorite portraits that I’ve taken. the opening of the show was a success. there was an article in the local paper, there was wine, there was cheese, there was no air conditioning. I had a great time.

polaroid grid film, expired 2005
(my favorite picture I’ve taken so far)
impossible project px680
I am quite the excited boy!
a friend offered me a spot in a local framing / art gallery opening, with the theme being analog portraiture. this will be my first time having anything displayed in a show, or public for that matter.
seeing as I don’t take very many portraits, it felt only natural to include cats. I will be using five polaroids, this one included.
who knows, if someone is inclined to purchase one I may just pay the electric bill on time this month. (or buy more film instead) though Im not sure if I could part with this one
after the funeral everyone got together for a cookout. my uncle lived in a very small, tight-knit community on the chesapeake bay, called “breezy point” all of us cousins migrated to the neighborhood private beach, where we had all spent weekends growing up. eating crabs, beach combing, and keeping an eye out for jellyfish. it was a weird way to grieve, digging in the sand, combing for sharks teeth as we had all done so many times.. but it seemed like the right thing to do.

my uncle died recently. I can’t do with words what I can do with pictures.
I’ll miss you, and the chesapeake bay won’t be the same without you.
