July - October 2019

Been traveling a lot lately and shooting a ton of film—still covered some local things, though. Favorite photographs made between the end of July 2019 and the beginning of October 2019 that didn't necessarily have a place in a larger story or post.

Recap of the last few month's updates at the end.

Blink 2019

Favorite aspect of Blink 2019?

Seeing the Riverfront Transit Center be utilized.

Rest of the event was good. Could only make it one night before going out of town. Didn’t shoot many photos (aside from the grainy, handheld ones seen here), but Phil did and as usual—he’s amazing. View his work here.

A lot of thoughts on this event and a few interesting conversations.

If you go tonight or tomorrow: catch the bus and train, say hi to strangers, be cool, and enjoy the city. If you find yourself on 5th St., keep an eye out for this Toynbee/House of Hades Tile:

[35mm Ohio] A Safari on the Shores of Lake Erie

Llamas, guanacos, and alpacas are not native to Africa.

Or Ohio, for that matter.

Shot with a Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film.

HaborArts Shipyard Gallery - East Boston

“Hey, did you just park a car there‽”


There was no reply to our answer, just outstretched arms and a look of exasperation beneath a generic hat reading “SECURITY.” The physical reaction seemed to indicate that the placement of our vehicle next to others, between two painted lines (despite no signage advising otherwise) was a major transgression—an action so unbelievably preposterous that it left the guard at a complete loss for words.

As we tried to explain, he cut us off...

“What do you think you're doing? This is an active shipyard."

Salisbury Beach, MA

A nice little spot near the northern end of Massachusetts where the wind blows in off the Atlantic and summer still feels alive despite the date on the calendar. A place where the corn dogs are delicious, the pizza sauce sticks in the back of your throat, and the wooden tables are sticky from a day's worth of dripping ice cream cones. Via limited time spent there, the Salisbury Beach Boardwalk feels like an honest spot despite the encroachment of nearby condos. It's where the din of people and the hollow rolling of Skee-Balls compete for equal attention against the local cover band belting out "Freebird."

The go-kart proprietor enforces the rules with an iron fist. A few laps and you're done.
