where i’m at

November 8, 2010

Ilford HP5+
. . . . . . . . .

it’s a cold, rainy monday in london.

i’m feeling sleepy.

i’m gearing up for a busy week ahead.

i’m thinking about my weekend in edinburgh, looking forward to developing my film.

i’m enjoying david wright’s photographs of forager evan strusinkski (thank you, shari).

i’m craving homemade soup, though i won’t be at home to make it this week.

i’m still looking for a pair of boots.

i’m trying to fight the november blahs that inevitably sneak up on me.

in 2 days, i will mark the 1 year anniversary of moving to london.

that’s where i’m at.

    I was just thinking about your year anniversary earlier tonight.

    Brian, these are all breathtaking. I’m starting to see a new little something coming out in your B&W’s. This project was a very good idea. Very good indeed.

    The November blahs are hard to shake.

    I love the bend in the light in the top photo. Lovely.

    I hope you have a good week!

    its already been a year!?

    keep the chin up man. i dont seen any november blahs in these black and white photos.

    i love the melancholy of november, though where i live it’s our sunniest, driest time of year and cool, not freezing. i miss the real change of the seasons.

    love that last photo (all of them, of course), but especially that last one and the shirt hanging. i just had some organic canned soup last night (closest i could get to homemade). it was so yummy.

    I agree, November holds a certain charm. And so does your photos.

    Happy anniversary! :-)

    I love these days of barely risen light, and the closing in of the season & the year. And pictures like yours that capture all the changing moods – very glad you are in London taking pictures of it all!

    can’t wait for the edinburgh pics, that is one of my favorite cities in the whole world, and i’m sure i’ll love it through your eye.

    i have the november blahs, too. but they are better than the january blahs because they mean holiday time is coming which means i get to start listening to sufjan stevens christmas album / mariah carey’s “all i want for christmas” verrrry soon!!! (maybe today)

    miss you!!

    these black and white photographs are looking so pretty.

    Do you develop your film and print your photos, or do you send them to a lab? Also, what type of camera are you using? I love the simple, unpretentious quality of your photographs. Keep it up!

    Edinburgh is one of my favorite cities in the world. Have a marvelous time!

    Love your photos. Happy to have found your site (through Jason, These Roving Eyes).
    I love November. The bookishness, the sombre light, the end of the Fall color: Everything Is Illuminated!

    hi brian!
    I’ve been wanting to share my thoughts on shooting with hasselblad with you, but work’s just so crazy :( thank you for mentioning my name in that post, i blushed :)

    love the contrast and composition in the shirt image.

  18. November 8, 2010 7:32 pm

    make molly’s whole wheat chocolate chip cookies. the perfect antidote for november.

  19. November 8, 2010 8:43 pm

    Well, helloooo, black and white. This is the good stuff.

  20. November 8, 2010 8:49 pm

    i wish i knew this blog at the time you lived in Brooklyn…

  21. November 8, 2010 10:55 pm

    These photos prove me right.
    Beautiful. The first two. Really.

  22. November 8, 2010 10:55 pm

    (I realize that might be confusing. I blogged you.)

    November in London… so dark, so early. It took me by surprise! Have you made it out to Greenwich yet? Greenwich Park and neighboring Blackheath are really lovely places to wander through and explore on dark and rainy days.

    loving your recent photos.

  24. November 9, 2010 2:26 pm

    Oh I really like these photos. It looks like you are following the light. Well done. It’s rainy and dreary in Portland today… I kinda like it.

    i love these shots, brian.
    i know what you mean about the november blues.
    listening to bruce springsteen’s new album on spinner.
    thank god for caffeine.
    1 year already – holy crap!
    my, my how time flies
    soon it will be june again
    until then, good luck with the boots

    Hey, November blahs are hard, especially with all this rain lately! Wishing for a break from it soon.

    Love that last hallway shot :)

  27. November 11, 2010 4:14 pm

    one year already, wow.

    these shots are so good.

    Lovely details. Loved the peak at your corner of the universe :) I too share the November blahs, even with the wonderful fall colors of New Jersey, Us. I’m a California girl. Ill never get used to November, which reminds me much too much of cold, dark winter.
