Forgot about this portrait. This is Anna, whom I met in LA at the Leica store. She is standing in front of a portrait of Stephen Hawking. Anna is a location manager for movies. Most rewarding films she’s ever worked on? Charlie’s Angels and some Julia Roberts movie I can’t remember the name of right now. Worst movie? Probably shouldn’t say but it’s got car racing (and like forty sequels), Quick and Full of Rage? Speedy and Angry? But Anna had, by far, the firmest handshake if anyone I’ve ever met ever, just crushing. #fujiga645#fujifilm#kodak#portra400#mediumformat#mediumformatfilm#makeportraits
|| We are back from vacation || and I took one picture the whole time 🤦🏻♀️ what kind of photographer am I... well this trip I was the kind that left my camera at home and let my phone die and I spent some quality time with my man and his wonderful family without the distraction of a screen.

Sometimes, fewer trees mean healthier forests. It seemed kind of backwards to me at first, but when I learned more about the importance of species diversity and the harmfulness of overdensity, it made a lot more sense. When an area is overpopulated with the same species, it becomes extremely prone to disease and allows any kind of drought or other similar type of natural occurrence to affect it much more harshly. This seems to be playing out in many areas in Yosemite National Park. For a very long time, any forest fire was seen as harmful and was therefore suppressed in every way possible. Unfortunately, the suppression of natural forest fires robs the landscape of its own ability to allow natural, healthy life cycles to continue in a forest. Certain trees, like the Giant Sequoia, are only able to germinate with the assistance of fire. Fire also allows important nutrients back into the soil and kills disease and insects that prey on trees. Pretty crazy huh? Sometimes, less results in greater health. Neature knows what’s up. 🌲🤓🌲

We 💙 Bournemouth! (even if it’s not quite beach weather yet)
SmokedOut #portra160nc (This is another photo that’s being heavily considered for a wall in our home. It was also shot on that same fruitful day last summer, smoke from forest fires created an otherworldly atmosphere. Mamiya RZ, 110mm.)
