2019, Thus Far

So, this year has been a busy one! Tons of things to do and very little time. Compared to the past couple of years I am constantly back and forth to Seoul, juggling three jobs, and taking care of our “babies.” That brings me to a point I kinda thought was interesting today. My friends […]

Tea Fields 

The green tea fields of Boseong. A popular place for Koreans to visit during the spring and summer. I went without much thought. I went without many expectations. I was somehow expecting a tranquil experience. I was expecting a feeling of calm.  In fact, though, it was busy and crowded. It was full of tourists. […]

Film, Still.

So, it has been about a month since I have been using film almost full time. It is an interesting experience. I mean, I shot film for years but somehow it makes a lot more sense to me this time. Maybe it is because I’ve gotten older or more patient. Maybe I am just learning […]

2017, Week 2.

One of the things I’ve decided to do in 2017 is to lose some weight, ha. A typical resolution but a necessary one. I gained 15KG in 2016. No good, that. Luckily already shedding them in the first couple weeks of 2017. The first thing I did was quite all the shit I was doing. […]

Parallels

I took the late train home Saturday night from Seoul. I haven’t taken the train much this year. I’m not sure why. I like the window seat. I like watching the countryside drone on. The contact sheets that make up my life. I was tired. Tired a lot lately. Almost too tired to take this […]

Metro

It must seem that I take so many photos on the subway. Funny, just happens to be where I am. Honeslty though, I probably take two or three photos during a trip. Maybe. Depends on how interesting the music I’m listening to is. I had a conversation with my friend Simon about this the other […]

Fog

Thursday morning was pretty foggy. Probably the most fog I’ve seen in Korea. Granted it was 6 AM. Maybe my brain was a little foggy. On my way to the golf course this was pretty much the scene out my window. Not ideal. Glad I could take a photo of it with my phone. Phones […]

A Feeling

We were on the metro and she blew me a kiss. Like a boyfriend does, I took a picture. “Why’d you take a picture?” “I dunno, it felt right..” “Okay…” It sometimes just feels right. To take a photo. Maybe a fear that I won’t always be able to remember walks in the rain. Maybe […]

Stills

Been a while since I’ve posted anything, and will probably be a while before I do again. I often say I’m going to take a break and rarely do, ha. Definitely needed this time though. Working on too many things and not nearly enough time. No time to shoot, no time to post, no time […]

Feeling

More fish. After spending the previous weekend in Busan I found it hard to get away from the couple of photos I took there. I feel like I figured something out about myself there. I’ve always found it really hard to explain why I like the photos I take with small, compact cameras more. It […]

Copies

A shitty, rainy day in Seoul. Still reminded of home with the rain sliding across the cafe window. I don’t often miss home, not really. That said, sometimes I feel like Newfoundland is a kind of oasis for Newfoundlanders. A trip back is needed every so often to cleanse the mind. The Soul.

Motion(s)

I don’t usually have much of a reason to come into Namdaemun Market anymore. It is probably one of the more interesting parts of 서울, but like everything else and everywhere else it becomes repetitive. I remember the first time I was here it felt like really being in Asia. It doesn’t feel the same […]

Purge

Last week, I deleted just about every photo I ever took. Everything from my hard drive. My Lightroom backups and libraries. I hated it all and it all had to get rid of it. What a fucking relief. Felt like graduating high school. I went out that night and decided shit is going to be […]

Winter

The season of change. “Trees withstand the hardest things nature throw at them and never waver. Trees loose their leaves in winter, but they never loose their gumption. When winter comes, they stand strong as they know winter is just a part of a cycle that will once again bring spring.” (From my project, The […]

Friends

Good friends aren’t easy to come by. They aren’t readily available and certainly don’t grow on the proverbial tree. They do tend to stick around, though. And the really good ones always got your back. Seoul, South Korea.  

Stray Dogs

“I’m like a stray cat or dog, or an insect…” “…Main streets are nice, but I dare not linger.” – From Diary of a Stray Dog. I’ve missed this. Missed the walk. Different scenery. Different people. Different smells. Different light. Different me. Only a compact camera and some film, I’m not much for process anymore. […]

The Culture: Choices

Nothing but a series of choices. For better or worse. Good or bad. Nothing but choices. The last four months I’ve sat on the periphery of a family. Watching from the outside has given me a different perspective. A decision made today is tantamount to both an opening and closure. Not mutually exclusive every decision […]
