and through the silence
Music has been an important of my life for quite some time. Unfortunately, I don't get around to playing much these days. Hoping that will change in 2017!
Near the house where I grew up rests an old stump that dates back to who know when.
I have no idea how old it is but I'd like to think it's pretty old (oak trees apparently get pretty old).
Regardless, I think it makes for an interesting photo.
I've been getting more excited about doing film photography lately. Why? I love the look and aesthetic that is inherit with film. There is something very appealing about the colors and the grain that come hand in hand with the craft. Sure it is expensive and time consuming to buy film, develop it, and scan it but it's worth it.
I'm almost done reading a great book called Film is Not Dead by Jonathan Canlas. It's both an overview of working with film but also an appeal to starting shooting with film. I highly recommend it if you are only slightly interested in film.
Lastly, I just pick up a Holga camera! I'll leave you with the following images I shot on my first roll with the "toy camera."
