If you're going to roast a pig, you're going to need a pig.




If you're going to roast a pig, you're going to need some wood.




It's been the better part of 20 years since I've climbed to the top of that rock. The Chief. It's time to do it again. Not this day, but soon.

John Lennon

"Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans."

It's debatable if John coined that phrase, but when a Beatle says something, ex or otherwise, it's noted. And John did say that.

Film is hanging and drying. I'm off to Victoria in the morning for a week. So no chance to scan and post for a while.

But life is happening.

And I did have other plans.

"Desinit in piscem, mulier formosa superne."

The beautiful woman ends in a fish's tail.

- Horace, Art Poetica (18BC)

More photos soon. Film is slow. Digital may make a return. Fuji has had my little camera for over two weeks now. No word on its return. Maybe I don't care anymore. In another two weeks I'll know for sure.

Those clouds...


When corralling electrons onto a drive of some sort it doesn't feel wrong to not share too many photos, but when shooting film, the sacrifice of chemicals and frames of film seems to suggest more photos should be shown.

Maybe not.

But here's 3.

That house will be gone in a few months, maybe sooner.

And the trees in the park are like a photograph of a dream.

Scanning film. Shooting film.

been trying to meet you
must be a devil between us
or whores in my head
whores at my door
whores in my bed
but hey
where have you been?
if you go i will surely die
we're chained

uh said the man to the lady
uh said the lady to the man she adored
and the whores like a choir
go uh all night
and Mary ain't you tired of this
that the mother makes when the baby breaks
we're chained

First, the Pine on the Corner disappeared, now one of the twin houses has gone as well.






Late night, early morning baking. Technically the 22nd, baked it after midnight...

Day 2 of film. Bonus pictures brought to you by Kodak TMAX 100. Not really, but here they are anyway.


Film. TMAX 100.

Three and a half years ago I bought a small digital camera for $1300 and I took a bunch of photographs with it and it's pretty good. And then the power switch broke. And it's going to cost a bunch more money to fix the stupid thing.

So the little Fuji X100S goes back to Fuji to get fixed, and this weekend and for the next week or so I'm going to haul around one of the three  40+ year old Spotmatics I own. Updates will be sporadic. The pictures will have a unique film quality. And then I'll get that little Fuji back and everything will go back to the way it was before. I'm alright with the way things were before. Somewhere in here is a "moral to the story" or an analogy, or something.

Or something.

"Fact may not be truth, and truth may not be factual." - Haruki Murakami


Boxed up this bike today. It was one of only ten ever made by a small company in the USA and it was made for me. If you look closely you'll see my name stamped into the bottom bracket shell on the left. But I sold it. Cleansing. Possession wise anyway. I still have seven bikes, though one of those is currently listed on craigslist. And I have at least one more that I might sell, or give away, or something. It's worth too much to give away, but it's time to get back to basics. Maybe I'll send one to Ontario, it would be good to have a bike there when I visit.

It will be good to have less stuff here messing things up. It's a time to keep things simple.
