december glow on film
i believe that it was a combination of low-speed slide film + december darkness that produced the photographs above. at first, i was really not into the warm yellow/orange tones in these photos. but when i lined them up and took a second (and a third) look, they spoke to me. together, they evoke that feeling of escaping from the cold this time of year. stepping into a warm room with a fire roaring and candles lit on the table, lingering over a hearty meal and a few beers or some red wine. so i’m sharing them anyway, and in a year i will remember what this december has felt like to me.
and speaking of looking back, ‘the blue hour’ is almost 1 year old. how fast 2009 has gone by! i do want to reflect on the year almost past. so i’ll be doing some of that later this week.
in the meantime, one thing to share today … i barely made it to the exhibition for ‘gentlemen of bacongo’ here in london before it closed yesterday, and it was AWESOME. my jaw hit the floor as soon as i walked in. you can see many of the photos HERE as a slideshow. so very excellent.
