Corey and I jumped into our pickup truck and trekked 70 miles south of Los Angeles, itchin’ for a weekend escape. We had a plan we were giddy to see through for some time and this was finally it. You see, when we had bought our pickup truck a year ago, we…

I’ve let this blog space get a bit dusty, and for that I am regretful. That said, I’d rather brush off any regret and give a hearty “hell yeah” to all the great projects I’ve been lucky to work on this past year, and that I even have a comfy space to share them…

Hello my friends, welcome to the sixth installment of Wednesday Ephemera!
What is “Wednesday Ephemera” you ask? Well, it is a Show and Tell of sorts, a place where I share pieces from my collection of paper ephemera. Click here to read my extended introduction.
Today I want to share with you a panoramic group photo that I purchased at the Vintage Paper Fair a couple weeks back. This group photo is of The Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Company Repair Department of Glendale, California in January 1950. In this photograph you see two rows of gentlemen as they pose for their formal portrait, one row standing and one row sitting.

BLOG POST: A Saturday Night with Friends

Above image: One Saturday night (July 14, 2012) in my apartment with friends.
Have you ever had a night where you stopped yourself cold and thought  — Damn, I’m going to remember this for as long as I live. — ?
If you have, then you know all too well what follows it; the morning after, and every passing morning after that, the memory travels further and further from you. You feel its presence but you struggle to know it as clear as you once did. The thrill of the moment always passes, the details always blur and fade.
Lucky for me that this time, when I stopped myself and had my thoughts, I matched it with a quick reach for my camera. This time I would snap a couple shots for longevity’s sake.
