Portland, OR. March, 2016.
Thousands of images saved, going back years. Rather than go on another camera spree, it’s time to look back with fresh eyes and give “old” images a renewal.

Obsolete tech lost in an emerging new paradigm. Hawthorne Blvd. Portland, OR.
Nihilism doesn’t work for me. I prefer to have an optimistic view of the future. Especially when an informal local network has fun, poking at the recent past.
Coffee and tea. Street beverage vending machine. Morioka, Iwate, Japan. Shot with Nikon FE2 and Silberra Ortho 50 film.

Coffee vendor waits for customers. Morioka-shi, Iwate, Japan. Nikon FE2 and Silberra 50 Orta black and white film. November 2019.

Only moments, captured with light and mirrors. Add smoke, and it becomes orthodoxy. I suppose then, that I’m gnostic.
