in january

January 19, 2011

. . . . . . . . . .

after the madness of november and december, a pause.

my favorite thing about january has always been the return to normalcy, a daily routine. this year more than ever before.

i loaded the Lomo LCA with film for the first time since this summer and have kept it with me these past couple of weeks. i like that camera.

also liking:

+ photos from el matador lucida
+ josh ritter’s incredibly thoughtful posts about making a life in music (with lessons that apply even if you are not a musician)

    I can never seem to capture how London looks and feels in my photos, but you do it perfectly.

    The light in the last photo is wonderful, Brian.
    Love all the scenes.

    You can feel the stillness of January here.

    Beautiful sights, Brian. And I couldn’t agree more about the normalcy. Hope you are well.

    January, oh, how much I love January for its fresh start and its renowned affection for the everyday.
    As always, beautiful pictures brian.
    Myself I’ve been having my Diana F+ hanging around my neck lately, and I am very exited to see the outcome soonish!

    ok, first off i really really love the photos you take. they are such an inspiration.
    i’ve recently decided to start taking photos with my dad’s old cameras, and i’m trying to learn as much about film as possible. my dad is sort of funny about film and is quite adamant that black and white is the only way to go, not only because of the lack of color (i don’t know..), but mostly because you can develop it yourself. so, my point..i was wondering if you (personally) develop your color film or if you send it off to get processed. i like color, but the roll i recently got developed looked like someone half drunk processed it..with dust all over. i hope this sort of makes sense..

    yes, yes, yes brian. i totally agree. i am always looking forward to the quiet in january (hope you are getting a little at least). and you know how i feel about You+Lomo.

    Also, looks like a CSA at your feet up there. Hope you got some good eats out of it.

    i love these photos.
    they make january to seem a bit better to me. i like returning to a routine too, but in the other hand january makes me bored. i’m fed up with winter and want some spring time.
    but i really like these.

    Stunning photos.

    And btw, are those Grape Nuts in the bowl? Or good old-fashioned Wheat Germ? Looks nummy. ;)

  23. January 31, 2011 11:13 am

    Great photos :)

    I never particularly cared for January’s; bleak, cold, dreary January’s…
    Maybe i need to get off to London.
    Also, that box filled with food – does that get delivered to your door? Because that is awesome!
    I can see milk, shallot, leeks, banana’s, and much more: it’s a feast!

    Congrats on FP

    I *totally* hear you about the return to normalcy. My autumn and holiday season were fraught with chaos. Now I have an empty house and an outlet for my introversion; I’m rebuilding my routine and finding my space, and it’s really, really good. These pauses are necessary, I think, for sparking creativity and energy later.

  28. January 31, 2011 11:41 am

    these photo blogs always make me wish i knew what the hell i was doing besides just point and click. congrats on FP, beautiful shots.

    Beautiful pictures, truly. I hate January. But then, I live in Toronto where there is nothing redeeming about this month. Ever. Your pictures helped brighten my day!
