Hi.  I’m human.  I go on vacation and stuff like everyone else and I like to take pics of my kids.  I also like to post pics of my kids because well, I’m pretty dang proud of those two monkeys and I like to show them off 😉  You know what I don’t like doing?  Lugging 10,000 lbs of expensive gear with me on vacation.  Last year, I decided to travel with nothing but my iPhone camera.  This year, I packed 2 rolls of film and my 20mm and decided that was that!  So, here is our trip to Palm Springs on FILM.  These are the first rolls I’ve shot in about 15 years and I forgot how much I adore it.  You know what’s great about film?  I shoot, ship it off, then I’m blessed with 72 images in PRINT.  No processing or editing and I’m blessed with a stacks of prints from our vacation <3  Proof that we were there: something I can slip into a frame and enjoy year round.  I’m a lover of digital files and still firmly believe in their value.  However, this is absolutely why I always provide reference prints of each digital file.  Not only so you have reference as to the quality of color and processing of each file on your disc, but so you have a tangible product.  Something you can rotate through desk frames and hold in your hands.  There’s just something about holding a print that I find so satisfying…

For the camera nerds: Nikon F100, Fuji Pro 400H, Nikkor 20mm 2.8
