“Understanding someone’s suffering is the best gift you can give another person. Understanding is love’s other name. If you don’t understand, you don’t love.”

Today’s image is from the latest results of the Great Transatlantic Pinhole Filmswap Project. This is one of those serendipitous film swap photos that make me remember why I love doing these. I am not very fond of this self portrait of me, but I am sharing it here because today I need the reminder to love myself. The  odd thing about this photo is that I made a video at this exact time and shared it here on my blog, with a quote from Kendrick Lamar’s song, “I” (a song about loving oneself).

You can see the rest of the results from the swap here. And do let me know if you are interested in participating!

a good day

Here is a pinhole photo I took a couple of weeks ago, Actually the same day I took the Happy Hour photo from last week. There was something about the way the light was shining. The grassy field, the weather, the temperature, and the dandelions. It was a good day.

Happy Hour

Here is a pinhole photo I took a couple of weeks ago at a restaurant in Portland. The blurry figure is my brother in law. We had a really great dinner. I ordered wild boar tacos. I will never do that again.
