Found.

Art Boxians!  Welcome back!

 

It has been too long.  As for me, well, I have had quite a few things happen in my personal life and, well, I didn’t blog much.  For that, I apologize.

That being said, let’s move on to better tidings.  Yesterday, I went to a gallery exhibit at the Cleveland Print Room called “Vernacular: Lost and Found”, which was a completely fascinating collection of old, found photographs that were a little bit funny, a little bit creepy, a little bit nostalgic, and definitely all fascinating.  This got me to thinking about what will happen to my old photographs someday.  I have to admit, I wish I could say that I had more of them to leave behind!  Ah, to have time…

 

Anyway, I didn’t take any photographs of the show itself, but I definitely recommend, if you are a Clevelander, that you head out to CPR and check it out.  It was definitely worth sitting in the holiday weekend traffic to get home.

 

And now, on to my next thing.

I went out shooting yesterday while my mouth was still numb from my root canal (I timed that one perfectly, didn’t I?). My photo-friend and I found this quaint little cemetery (always with the cemeteries with us two) with some gorgeous trees.  I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite shots from our little outing.

 

A SELF PORTRAIT

 

This self portrait is more of a reflection of what I feel like when I am NOT shooting … a little lost.  A little haunted.  I am still trying to get the perfect self portrait that depicts my mood appropriately.  This one comes pretty damn close.Gateway

PURITY

Just a few of my favorites.

 

So, Art Boxians, what the hell was the purpose of this post?  Eh.  There wasn’t one, really.  I am just really stoked that I got a chance to hang out with my camera for a while.  Oh, speaking of which …

RANGEFINDER

I did a little small scale light painting in anticipation of when I finally get out there and do this large scale.  

 

In the meantime, don’t be like me.  GET OUT THERE AND SHOOT!  Don’t have two jobs if you can help it… I feel like I lost my soul somewhere.  😦

XOXO
