North Florida Nature


The First Coast of Florida feels full of wisdom and age. Old-growth forests fill the landscape, many untouched by man. There are many wooded lands around Jacksonville and St. Augustine that are being turned into housing developments, but I appreciate the lands that have been preserved as a testament to Florida’s past.


Oh sweet film, please come back…

Over the past month or so, I have felt the desire to shoot more with film. That sweet, vibrant, grainy, tangible film that has spanned over 100 years of history was calling my name, trying to bring back the magic. So I did! I learned how to process C-41 film and I shot a few rolls.

The fact that you do not get instant gratification, nor do you get clean, sharp images, was a relief. I thought more about what I wanted to shoot. I slowed down. I put less stress on shooting, and found myself looking more.

I know that I was born 50 years too late, but I am glad that I can still enjoy the fruits of that time. I plan on slowing down more. And hopefully, making better images.
