“Homeless and Fearless” 2015

They woke up a homeless man by kicking the box that he was sleeping in and insulting him, and he grabbed a homemade weapon of some sorts and took after the group.

Then I watched the group back down as they realized their joke had gone too far. The last time I saw one guy stand up to this many guys without displaying fear was in 1979…

“My Last Roll of Kodachrome” 2008

Progress is hard to swallow sometimes. Even though I’ve shot black & white film for a very long time, once or twice a year I’d shoot a roll of Kodachrome just for posterity’s sake. When Kodak stopped manufacturing K-64 it came as no surprise to anyone, but hurt almost anyone who’d been raised on the stuff. It wasn’t a high contrast “big color” type of film, but it was the closest thing to reality that one could put in a camera. It had a long run and now it lives in our scrapbooks and 8mm home movies from our past…
