Analog Died a Little More Today

Friday, April 10th, 2009

Walking back to the station in Ichikawa, Chiba, my heart dropped down around my ankles today.  The Oaba Photo Studio is No More.  It was there a few months ago.  Yes, it was decaying, and empty, a hollow shell of what it most have been.  

The papers that lay in its window were faded from years of exposure.  But that is all gone now.  At this time huge canvas sheets protect the road from the debris from its destruction.  Several bright orange cones keep the viewers back.

Sigh, so yes, the Obara Photographic Studio will be missed.  Another piece of analog history dies.

The Fujipet Goes to Miami, 2009

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

The little vintage analog camera Fujipet made the long journey with me half way across the world to my home town of miami florida.  There I put it to good use as a companion in my runnings, journeys and daily life in South Florida.  The raw, simple tool leaves little between myself and my imagination.

 

enjoy the images taken in Miami, Key West and the Florida Keys.
