We are on Vacation.

Its been a week and we are starting to slow down. I am armed with my little Contax and many many rolls of film.

Before we left we had some special visitors. I got the film back yesterday. Here are a few.    View full post »

The week

that Kevin has started his movie in Baton Rouge the kids got sick. Of course they did. In between not sleeping and coughing and sneezing they played on this bed. A sense of normalcy returned after I made these pictures. For all of us. View full post »

Sharon

is a photographer. I love being asked to take photos for photographers. Sharon’s photos already feel so specific to who she is which is really the biggest thing.

We are so happy

today. We are spending the last day of the year with very our good friends in Monterey. We had coffee on the beach. I am going to say it again. We had coffee on the beach. I am smiling, can you tell? I often find myself not in the best of moods on the last day of the year. New Years Day has always been a tricky one for me. But today we are where we meant to be. I hope its a good one for youView full post »
