Being home in Connecticut has been relaxing but still makes me feel this nagging notion that I am not meant to be here. Don’t get me wrong, I love home cooked meals and being home with my family but now that I have graduated it just feels like a step back. But in order to go anywhere else I need money and a job. God whoever said growing up was fun would be classified as a complete idiot in my eyes.
New York City this week for my dear old room mate and BEST friend Chase Hartley. It will be nice to be back in my old stomping ground.
Also thinking about starting the next chapter in my video blogs but more information on that later.
Haven’t blogged on this in quite sometime and feels good to do it again! Maybe I will start doing this more often. Someone must enjoy my crazy ramblings.

CAMERA OBSCURA BY ABELARDO MORELL
Photographer Abelardo Morell - “I made my first picture using camera obscura techniques in my darkened living room in 1991. In setting up a room to make this kind of photograph, I cover all windows with black plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then, I cut a small hole in the material I use to cover the windows. This opening allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the back walls of the room. Typically then I focused my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall then make a camera exposure on film. In the beginning, exposures took from five to ten hours”. [see more]
