Blog

I began this photo blog in the Summer of 2014 when I bought a Fujifilm X100s. It has turned into a lifeline of black and white photographic expression and writing. Browse through for a while if you care to.

Millions can all experience fear of missing out in unison, and that can't be a good thing. Watching other people do what you're not can be a source of anxiety amongst people, and I'm no stranger to its effects, but knowing that this is a thing, can I justify my own insatiable need for wanderlust?

Colour Vol. 2

Landscapes and nature, hiking and coastlines. Here's a variety of new photographs from both the Leica and Nikon with 35mm lenses.

With digital, you start with all colours and go from there. So I've put down the film cameras with intention to shoot with more colour.

Black & White Vol. 111

That didn't take long to accrue again. Street photography, urban landscapes, catch ups with friends, and plenty of printing later. Winter is drawing on and so I'm enthusiastic to get back into the mountains and hike before it gets warm and the days get long. I have done barely any this year.
