Double Exposure: Bucks County Flora x Yorkshire Autos

After some success with our first film swap, Danny and I are back at it with another! This time around I wanted to keep it a bit more focused and decided to shoot a full roll of the best flowers that Bucks County had to offer.  With simple instructions to shoot some classic British autos over top of my flowers, I shipped the roll off to Danny in Yorkshire to see what he could see. I could not be happier with the results and am already looking forward to our next swap! 

Now Developing - Shutter Sounds 010

Having followed Dylan from Now Developing for some time, I was stoked to have the  opportunity to share a 10 song playlist of the music I've been shooting to for his Shutter Sounds series. The mix is mostly jazzy hip-hop with some pop influence sprinkled throughout for good measure . The cover is a Chevy Nova wagon I stumbled upon somewhere in Philadelphia that felt like it really embodied the sounds.

Shutter Sounds is a monthly, ten-song music playlist based upon my most-played music of the previous month.  These monthly compilations are not limited or constrained to any theme or genre.  They are simply a selection of songs that I chose from my most played artists of the month for the readers to enjoy while shooting, spending time in the darkroom, or want to listen to something new.

The playlist is up on Spotify or Youtube.

Tracklist:

  1. Keep On, Alfa Mist
  2. Come Meh Way, Sudan Archives
  3. In My View, Young Fathers
  4. Come Down, Anderson .Paak
  5. Miss Chew, Nick Hakim Jesse & Forever
  6. Ammi Ammi, Archy Marshall
  7. In Your Eyes, BADBADNOTGOOD
  8. Benzie Box, Danger Doom
  9. Real, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
  10. Sugah Daddy, D’Angelo & The Vanguard

Details: A Bridge to Another Dimension

I have both driven and ridden my bike over the Indian River Inlet bridge many times since they rebuilt it in 2012. Every time I cross at night, I am completely blown away by how beautiful it is. On my last visit I had my tripod and the rest of my inaugural roll of Cinestill 800 from the The York County Fair.

Fun Fact: Halation, according to the Google, is the spreading of light beyond its proper boundaries to form a fog around the edges of a bright image in a photograph or on a television screen. It is also the primary reason that I have fallen in love with so many Cinestill 800 photos. The halation, especially of red light, is absolutely incredible and really makes it feel straight out of an old movie.

From Where I Ride Part 2: T-Rexstasy

Finally! The second installment of From Where I Ride is here. This time I lugged my trusty K1000 around good ole Bucks County! Many of these roads are amongst my favorites and although I ride them with some frequency, there is always something new to see. From a hungry Tyrannosaurus rex to a flock of butterflies, you never quite know what you're going to run into. With a few steeper climbs than my average ride, this one really got that blood pumpin'!
