That time I took a photo of garbage


Here is another shot from my One Pinhole A Day project. On my walk to work I often see empty plastic bottles of this brand of vodka lying by the sidewalk. It always makes we wonder about the person who emptied it. I decided to pinhole it one day.

Incidentally, I was interviewed last Friday evening on my friend John Meadow‘s podcast, MPP. We had a great conversation about pinhole photography, film, and the postcard swap. You can listen here. And his podcast, in general, is really great and worth subscribing to if you are a film photography geek (like me). 🙂

Here is a post from my sketching blog, posted today. I am really, really wanting to develop a daily drawing habit and for some reason I keep tripping over myself.

I’ve always had a fascination with paper crafts but have never delved very far into that world. When scrapbooking was popular I was, for some reason, repelled by it but also had a strange fascination. This interest ebbs and flows. 

Recently I was in a local craft store buying art supplies and found myself drawn to an aisle that carried all of these completely adorable stamps and examples of handmade cards. I was instantly hooked. I started collecting these things and have even tried making a few, but I honestly don’t know what I’m doing.

Today I was at Craft Warehouse again and they offered a free class! So I made this card. It was fun. 🙂
