Older lang syne

I found my backup discs from a few years back. Here are a few from the archives. My camera at this time was a small, inexpensive point and shoot camera.

December 2007. I like bathrooms with tacky or stereotypical wallpaper. This photo makes me think of an American Autopilot or American Dream Autopilot that gets turned on and then we decorate accordingly, vacation accordingly, shop accordingly, medicate accordingly.

December 2007. This is a friend who came to my high school for a year and then moved away, which is sad because we clicked pretty fast.

January 2008. Another "Jaded by Suburbia" shot haha, self portrait this time.

March 2008. Playing around with juxtapositions.

June 2008. Mashed up a photo of my face with a photo of my Stepdad's face that were really similairly angled haha.

That is all for disc one.

Coastal, film

Please ignore the splotches, I haven't been very careful with keeping my fingerprints of the scanner glass. Also, I wish the scanner could capture the way a film photograph looks in real life. It never seems the same when copied onto the computer.

Sometimes you get to a place where you just look around and remember how this is a planet, with a mystical atmosphere that protects us and shines and darkens and interacts with elements of earth, presenting us daily with a grand theater. And on the other side of it's massive layers, lies the incomprehensibly collasal span of eternity. or a thimble full of solid matter. But here we are.
There is always something bigger.

Picking up a carcass

Those are reprints that I had made because the photo lab didn't print them. I wanted them to reprint exactly what was on the index because I loved the mash up that was caused by the film not being run through correctly:

 but I guess the film didn't run the same way when they did it again. That is why I wish Target photo lab would stop leaving out prints from my film that they feel are not proper photos! Often I am missing prints that are on the index that show sun glare or discoloration. But of course I love those flaws! Who wouldn't?? I don't feel that it is their job to decide what prints are good enough to keep.
So anyway, I tried to make one that looks like the photo on the index-

In these photos I was going to get my car, the blue one there which had broken down in the middle of the night on the interstate the night before, towed by AAA.
