I've started to read the last Salinger book available for reading, as in, the one I haven't read yet. Steinbeck wrote a whole bunch of stuff over the years. I won't be left wanting for another classic author to read after finishing Salinger, not with Steinbeck in the wings. And there's a (very) short list of Raymond Carver books I haven't read yet, though I find satisfaction in rereading the Carver books I've already read.

I'm sure Steinbeck used a typewriter the first time these words were written. I'm happy to have made a machine repeat this event.

"One suits a moment in drunkness." Magnetic poetry moments.

We are what we are. And there's no fighting it. And, if we're lucky, we get to embrace it.

You are beautiful.

Taken with a Nikon D700. I had forgotten the challenges of shooting with a 98% coverage viewfinder. Not so much in this photo, but there were others I took today where objects snook their way onto the edges of the frame. Still a great camera all these years later though.

Wait, what? Porteau Cove.  






Don't know. Don't know.

I think that's it for film for a while. I love the way it looks, but...

Nope. Nothing. It's been a challenge to take photographs lately. Maybe it's a bit of burnout from the road trip. Maybe it's just that I've walked down every street, ridden a bike in every alley, seen every building/house/tree/park this city has to offer. I mean, I know that's not true, but some days it feels like it. More bike rides? Maybe more motorcycle rides? I suspect I just need to get out of town more often. Or forever.

I make challenges, like film, to keep it interesting. Maybe two weeks with a medium format camera, since there's only 15 shots per role of film. Or just one week, and post two pictures a day. Maybe an instant camera. Maybe video for a week. I don't know.

Maybe it's time for a hiatus again.

I mean, I like that I can scroll down to 11 years ago today and see that I spent some time ripping around on a Vespa P125E. That's not why I do this, though I'm not sure why I do this.

There have been days when I've purposely missed a day; I'm not sure if "kintsugi" is the word I'm looking for here for when that happens. I certainly appreciate the flaws making this "thing" a better "thing." But I didn't purposely miss today. I had a camera with me all day. I just didn't take any pictures.

I'm not sure why.
