::remembering your forgotten treasures::

Missing this day. Traveling 10 hours by ferry and bus from the Westman Islands off the southern coast of Iceland to the northern coastal town of Hófssós all in one day. This was our in-between point. A late afternoon picnic in the central Icelandic Highlands, where practice exercises for the Apollo Mission were held. From snacking on jam, crackers, and Dutch Carrots, to wading our tired hot feet in the numbing glacier fed milky colored water of the Hvítá River. I was heartbroken and out of sorts, but still this was truly one of the best days of my life thus far, don't even ask me what I would trade in exchange for being there again for a little while....  photo IMG_1605-1_zpsbf09e39a.jpg  photo IMG_1624-1_zpsb720d470.jpg  photo IMG_1606-1_zps2871671d.jpg  photo IMG_1613-1_zpsb7194350.jpg  photo IMG_1621-1_zps4a358b22.jpg  photo IMG_1622-1_zpsea27a762.jpg

::moment of solitude::

Finally regaining my creative and emotional composure. This summer has been such a slow motion whirlwind. Losing a relationship I'm better off not having. Regaining myself. A dear friend taking his own life out of the blue... (Is suicide ever anticipated or expected...?) Trying to relax in the arms of the most solid state ever. I may be a tad mixed up but, when I tell you "i love you" I feel truly at "home"... With some very hard lessons learned, this summer is ending on many good notes.  photo legs_zps28300a58.jpg  photo ang_lake_zps689692f7.jpg  photo wine_glass_zps97c6208e.jpg

::summer moon over Mt. Si::

 photo doublemoon_zps9db047e4.jpg God blessed me, I'm a free man, With no place free to go, I'm paralyzed and collared-tight, No pills for what I fear. This is crazy, I wish I was the moon tonight. Chimney falls and lovers blaze, Thought that I was young, Now I've freezing hands & bloodless veins, As numb as I've become. I'm so tired, I wish I was the moon tonight -Neko Case

::time is never time at all::

I don't know what's changed in my head lately, I've been really reveling in my dreams, my intuitions... Something has suddenly inspired me to tap into my consciousness I've surely been ignoring for too damn long. This morning I woke up thinking of this particular image from Ocean View, HI Nov 6th, 2012. Something inside me tells me to dive deeper....  photo timeisnevertime_zps161e6149.jpg

::maybe I'm in town for someone's birthday, or maybe I make trouble where ever I go::

::Muscle & Marrow::

Last Monday I had the fun opportunity to photograph Portland band, Muscle and Marrow. Check out their haunting, lovely and wonderfully arranged dark folk music HERE  photo IMG_6088_zps6603b126.jpg  photo MampM_zpsec24a1ae.jpg
