as i spend the long weekend here in metro detroit visiting family and old friends, i find myself driving a lot more than i am accustomed to in seattle.... so when i had a half hour break in my daily schedule of events, i took the opportunity to get off the freeway and drive around some roads in the city i was born and raised in. as i was snapping away, i was reminded of how many photos i have taken in the form of a "drive-by shooting". these are no exception.

last night i went over to robert's new studio... i've shot for him several times over the past year, and it's great to see that he finally got his own sweet deal.

My friend Lauren had told me about a group of people that get together on Thursday nights at a local high school to use their darkroom facilities for personal photography, leaving the commercial work behind. While it sounded like a really nice group of traditionalists, I for some reason thought of myself somewhat removed from simple b/w processing. I'm not sure why... but I didn't feel the need to "go out of my way" when I do so much with scanner/photoshop.
However, with the colder months coming on, I decided to sign up for the Fall Quarter workshop. Next week will be our last and all I can think about is, "When will Winter quarter start!"
It has been a real test of commitment to consistently shoot film, but more difficult, to put four hours aside to do nothing but make pictures.
Just. To. Make. Pictures. In a dark dark room.
