shaving off the minutes of life – “from negatives,” archival film site, “burn” series, leica portraits

i have been working so much lately  it’s been difficult to find time to do anything. i have been teaching almost 5 days a week when permissible. it’s been so great and my first check since june came in the mail last week. it’s financial catch up time and im on the right track.

i did manage to write a short story about subbing last week and will be posting that to the words section very soon so keep your eyes peeled.

in photography news, i am proud to introduce my new archive film site, “from negatives. i will be uploading pictures i have scanned from negatives dating back to 8 or so years ago. they will be broken up into series’ based on themes. up first is the “burn” series.  this series was shot in north carolina back in the fall of 2006. here a few from the series.

i’m halfway through tom robbins “half asleep in frog pajamas.” ive been reading it on my planning periods while teaching and i’m hooked.

i’ve been listening to the new mogwai e.p. “earth division,”  the album leaf, deerhunter, fyoelk, grandaddy, and the sea and cake

currently watching that 70’s show, and my so called life
