FIN + FLOWER




A few misc film images that I like as a group. Organic shapes, petals, creatures, and some good colors.

I – A double exposure of Sydney from a Yo Vintage shoot, maybe even two years ago, at the old Fieldwork Flowers HQ.

II – Megan’s flower crown leading our way to Victoria, from our little roadtrip up there earlier this year for Crystal Visions. Rachel has been posting a few photos from last year’s party on her instagram, which you should follow. I don’t think I ever posted about the trip but it was so fun, driving the Olympic Peninsula with Megan for her first Canadian experience. Victoria was looking extra cute with all the cherry blossoms, Princess St., Floral Chapel, etc. Then, the wine and the ladies (I only came here for two reeeeasons).

III – dalas at the Maui Aquarium from our Hawaii trip earlier this year.

IV – My friend Kevin’s amazing fishtank, with ALL REAL plants (and fish, duh). REAL coral. Something else really real: the fish named Beyonce.

MY FAVORITE MOMENT


I’m feeling kind of dejected lately, but I know it will pass. The changing seasons make me sad because it means that winter is going to happen again, but I’m setting up plans to spend more time in California (THE SUN) this year so it will be fine. But my body doesn’t know that! It won’t believe me until it happens. As a digital treat to myself I revisited these photos that dalas took of my #1 Most Favorite Moment of the year, watching the sunset in Maui, trapped in a pink misty cloud. I could have existed in that pastel universe for the rest of my life. Here’s one I took on film.

FLOATING CABIN






More photos from our summer houseboating trip on Sproat Lake. My film SLR did me wrong in two ways – many unfortunate light leaks that killed frames, and straight-up empty/blank frames as if the shutter didn’t open at all. WTF? It worked totally fine for the past few rolls, I have the worst luck with my 35mm film cameras. I only got a few images from the trip, but it’s ok. I think we shot something like 2000 photos on Rachel’s camera anyway, ha ha. It’s cold, dark and rainy here now, so summer photos are (sort of) helping to lift my mood (not really).

FOREST PERFUME



I spent the first week of September cruising around a Vancouver Island lake, on my annual Canadian friends trip (this was our second nautical year, aboard a houseboat!). We found ourselves in need of a little aromatherapy so each night, when we would land on shore, we collected nature bits for smudge sticks and incense. Pine, tree sap, chamomile, mint, whatever we could find. Each one mightier than the last.
