Roll: Buttermilk Drop Bakery

Last week, the local Buttermilk Drop Bakery burned down in the middle of the night. I rushed over the next day and made some photographs of the rubble using my Nikon F, 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor lens, and Ilford FP4+ film. Here they are! 

I might make some actual darkroom prints of these in the future. TBD!

Roll: Louisiana Renaissance Festival

On Sunday, Katie and I journeyed to the Village of Albright (otherwise known as the Louisiana Renaissance Festival in Hammond, Louisiana). 

We're huge fans of the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin, so we were super excited about exploring Louisiana's own festival. While much smaller than Bristol, Albright still has a lot to do, see and taste. The landscape is quite pleasant, with the entire village surrounding a large pond. We had fun just eating snacks by the water and watching the scores of interesting people walk by. One gigantic advantage to the Louisiana Festival is that it takes place later in the year, so the weather is much nicer than the sweltering August days of Wisconsin's faire, where temperatures have been around 100 degrees on some weekends. Sunday was probably the first time I actually felt comfortable wearing my Renaissance outfit outdoors!

Here are some photos I took during our time in Albright. I used my Pentax LX with a 50mm f/1.4 Lens and Kodak T-Max 400 film.

We look forward to many more trips to Albright in future!

Roll: Atlanta Trip

Last weekend my MFA seminar class took a trip to Atlanta to look at a bunch of cool galleries. The highlight of the trip for me was getting to see some original Duane Michals prints. It was also just really great to hang out with and get to know my fellow grad students. Here are some photos I took during our trip with my Nikon F2 camera, 50mm f/1.8 lens, and Kodak TMax 400 film.
