Heal the Sick

Earlier this weekend, a reader sent me this photo they snapped on a recent trip to London:

They were amused by the odd mission statements or promises of the institution, and thought I might agree that perhaps their aim to “Raise the Dead” was at best inspiring, if a bit creepy.

I’ve been inside for most of the day editing, ironically, images of the beautiful autumn colors outside. Here are just a few:

Couldn’t resist the abruptness of the last image in contrast to the other four.

September

A number of you have asked me what ever happened to September. Allow me to illustrate with a photo:

I always felt it was better to show rather than tell. Wouldn’t you agree?

The last few days of rain and autumnal gloom have lulled my memories back to Göteborg. I haven’t paid it much mind over the last few years– I finished my MFA and didn’t really look back afterward.

But here I am, back in Baltimore after a move back from Sweden, and two three 1500mi+ moves. I’m meeting and reconnecting with tons of people, so all of the ground I’ve covered in the last ten years is getting shuffled around in the foreground of my mind more than usual. But today, today felt like another day in Göteborg.

Here is how I remember parts of it:

Notes like this remind me of how lucky I am to have friends like I do– a little bit of silliness to share a smile.

Thank you, Jake, for being such a great friend all these years.

Last weekend, I ventured down to the water for the Fells Point Fun Festival; it was the first time I had been down that way in almost five years. In all of the years I’ve been away, parts of the City have truly grown and revitalized in a way I was not fully prepared for.

So it was a bit of a shock to see the once cracked and fractured corners of Fells Point completely rebuilt into new homes, condos, cafes and businesses. Whole buildings I’d grown to love were gone, and while I was delighted to see the community dancing in the streets under a summery sun, it was sad to see fleeting pieces of our history gone.

While tidying earlier this evening, though, I realized I still have a few pieces of those buildings we lost in old photographs:

What do you think? Are there buildings or monuments from Baltimore’s past that you miss? Are there architectural disasters you’re glad are gone?

I can not describe how things have been lately… formulating a cogent description eludes me. So I’ll summarize:

I feel like I’ve been kicked in the teeth… And it’s my own doing…

Just wondering…

So, can I just pop over to Edinburgh today? Y’know take the afternoon off, go to a museum, stroll along and take some snapshots while window-shopping… and then meet my loved ones for coffee… more strolling and then a late dinner with a view?

Charm City

Today I miss Baltimore. There’s just something about that funny little town on the Chesapeake that cannot be found anywhere else in the world… Something about the people and the City’s strange little quirks that I will always love.

Flipping through old photos from my travels, this shot of the ruins at St. Karin’s in Visby struck me. And seemed like a good basis for a quick exploration… Makes me want to take a long weekend on the island…

This is a montage of snaps from my travels over the last few years… I’ve got workshops on the brain this afternoon… so it’s no wonder my mind is drifting somewhere industrial and scuffed up…

Enjoy your weekend, everyone! And don’t do too much heavy lifting 😉

Recently, I took a long walk around my neighborhood and down to the beach. I love where I live right now because of the proximity to the water. Often times after a hard week, a long stroll by the water is just what the doctor ordered to soothe your aching body and mind. While crossing the drawbridge back to my loft, I caught a flash of a texture I couldn’t resist, and snapped this, since I always keep a camera in my purse:

Drawbridge gate texture

When I looked at the shot afterward, the palette I’d captured struck me– it wasn’t obvious when taking the picture, but I liked the simple, primary colors.

Later, while reflecting in my studio, I thought of a visual parallel to the above shot. No wonder I liked the composition of the texture, it reminded me of this:

For the last few days, I’ve kept this picture floating about my desk so that I’d trip over it again and again. I love the saturated and summery color palette captured in this snapshot from the other weekend and keep yearning to return to my favorite spot at the beach…

Coastal

This past weekend, I took a drive up the coast for a quiet getaway. I camped close by in the redwoods and was early to rise so that I could explore:
Shaded path

Queen Anne's Lace

Tomales Bay
This is within an hour’s drive of the loft… and people wonder why I moved….

I took these pictures with a current side project in mind… I hope to infuse the finished piece with the same dreamy quality these photos begin to capture.
