"There are the things that are out in the open, and there are the things that are hidden. The real world has more to do with what is hidden."

Saul Leiter

Quotes

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

— Elliott Erwitt

Flea Market Film

Some of the film I shot recently was over 12 years expired, and found sweating away in freezer bags in the sun among piles of odds and ends at the flea market. I wasn't sure if anything was going to come out on the film at all, so I decided to to have some fun and run the rolls through plastic cameras and then cross process. The first batch came back, and from the c-prints, it looks like the film still works. Time to shoot some more. 

Forgotten Film

Over the last 2 years I've been slowing buying up boxes and bags of expired and discarded film, as well as flea market cameras, looking for a chance to return to shooting cheap film on cheap cameras like I did when I started photographing San Jose all those years ago. After over thinking what to do with it all, I just decided the best thing to do was hit the streets with it to see what I find... Let the fun begin.
