(webstagram) I’ll probably never tire of taking photos of phone booths. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” This one still works. . . . . #onephonecallwilldo #letsgetawayfromitall #californiasgold #sheltercove #humboldtcounty #drivebyfilm #makemeseemag #burbsonfilm #baeareafilm #streethoney #11dollarcigs #queerfilmphotographers #back2thebase #photofilmy #asahi #pentaxk1000 #slr #35mm #kodakproimage200 #instagay #instaqueer #queerphotographer #photographerofcolor #ishootfilm #supportblackartists #shootfilmnotblackpeople #photolab_berkeley

(webstagram) I’ve been thinking about the concept of letters and words, their lack of permanence in our moment, etc. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” I sent postcards while on my trip a few weeks ago as much as I could to people that occupied a special corner in my heart, not really knowing if I occupied space in their hearts. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Most of those postcards were whimsical or artistic renderings rather than the actual landscape. For some reason I wanted to obscure the beauty of what I saw personally so they’d be inspired to check something out with their own eyes. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” It’s with full irony that I’m typing this on a platform where most people don’t β€œread” and just mindlessly click thru images that have less and less weight in the glut of what we’re bombarded with. But sometimes, it’s good to feel like a rebel taking up space. . . . . . . #takealettermaria #letsgetawayfromitall #californiasgold #redwoods #humboldtcounty #drivebyfilm #makemeseemag #burbsonfilm #baeareafilm #streethoney #11dollarcigs #queerfilmphotographers #back2thebase #photofilmy #superricohflex #tlr #mediumformat #120mm #fomopan #fomopan200 #instagay #instaqueer #queerphotographer #photographerofcolor #ishootfilm #supportblackartists #shootfilmnotblackpeople #photolab_berkeley

(webstagram) It’s weird to feel another decade of life slip out of your hands. I’ve been wondering how to document my thoughts and feelings on that. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” It helps when you’ve know people for years. I met @patrickjoust 15 (15!) years ago as we spent most of the time working at @hudsonbooks in SF not really working or trying to convince people to read something else on their flights besides β€œThe DaVinci Code.” β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” He’s the friend that has longest indulged me taking command of a playlist or watch extremely trashy movies. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”- Also he’s the person that encouraged me 7 years ago to get into film photography again. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Cherish the people that don’t slip away with time in your life. . . . . . #throwbackthursday #patrickjoust #letsgetawayfromitall #californiasgold #drivebyfilm #makemeseemag #burbsonfilm #baeareafilm #streethoney #11dollarcigs #queerfilmphotographers #back2thebase #photofilmy #superricohflex #tlr #mediumformat #120mm #kodak #portra160 #instagay #instaqueer #queerphotographer #photographerofcolor #ishootfilm #supportblackartists #shootfilmnotblackpeople #photolab_berkeley

(webstagram) β€œSome fools don't know what's right from wrong But somehow those folks belong Me, I try for all I'm worth But I still remain a stranger on this earth.” β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” The Chevrolet Corvair is perhaps the strangest car that ever sold to mainstream Americans and actually sell over a million copies. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-β€”β€” Compromised, flawed, feisty, trendsettingly beautiful and invigorating when optioned properly, it probably is my favorite car of all time. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” 60 years and a month after the first one was introduced I dunno if I’ll ever own one. But I’ll always stop and smile each time I see one. . . . . #asundaycarpic #seetheusainyourchevrolet #1963 #chevroletcorvairmonzaspyder #drivebyfilm #makemeseemag #filmcarmag #burbsonfilm #baeareafilm #streethoney #11dollarcigs #queerfilmphotographers #back2thebase #photofilmy #superricohflex #tlr #mediumformat #120mm #kodak #portra160 #instagay #instaqueer #queerphotographer #photographerofcolor #ishootfilm #supportblackartists #shootfilmnotblackpeople #photolab_berkeley

(webstagram) When’s the last time you sat down and wrote a letter? β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”- Do you have a Post Office 🏀 box? β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”- It’s an interesting world lacking in tangibles in desperate need of tangibles to survive. Hopefully we will remember the acts and spaces that allow for that. . . . . . . #pleasemrpostman #californiasgold #lostcoast #humboldtcounty #drivebyfilm #makemeseemag #burbsonfilm #baeareafilm #streethoney #11dollarcigs #queerfilmphotographers #back2thebase #photofilmy #superricohflex #tlr #mediumformat #120mm #fomopan #fomopan200 #instagay #instaqueer #queerphotographer #photographerofcolor #ishootfilm #supportblackartists #shootfilmnotblackpeople #photolab_berkeley
