seaside park/heights, nj 2008/thanksgiving time

we went on a walk to get out of the house. the boardwalk is very different in the winter. desolate and still. no rides whirling or faux calliopes clashing.

dan grew up going to this boardwalk as he lived about 10 minutes away. he had his first job at midway steak house and then later worked  at the water park down the street.

a lot of what is in these images is no longer there. hurricane sandy wiped a good bit out in 2012. then a fire wiped out other parts of it in 2013. i'm incredibly grateful to have these images. 

additionally, i really loved those blue corduroys that dan is wearing in the last image. loved them.

oh boy. this is a weird mix of people and places. must have been a winter break as some of the images are in chapel hill (carrboro) and some are in chicago. 

i am not entirely sure who one of the images is of or where it was taken. it feels and looks so familiar but can't for the life of me place it.  not being able to access this information in my brain is incredibly frustrating for me.

i am still very fond of this stretch of homes in carrboro- have always loved the porches. they don't look much different now. possibly a tad tidier.

ah..pearly sweets and the platonics. but only part of the band-karl, boz, pearly sweets; where is h carl?

bored. taking pictures of myself because i didn't know what else i wanted to take pictures of. i was there. the camera was there. this may have been in my "shop girl" phase- you know the book by steve martin. there was a line in there that struck a cord with me that i tried to translate into photographs. something about seeing small patches of another's skin and being seduced by it. it being more alluring than that same person baring all. i remember photographing a few others around this time and it never quite matched the vision i had in my head of what that was.

crazy hair and no body in the bathroom on mozart.

in some of the other images, you can see the degradation of the film and the shadows of the sprockets. you can see the whole roll here.

old film

 i have had a bag of exposed but undeveloped film for years. who knows how far back they go. they've been moved several times and kept in various temperatures.  i am sure some of it has been exposed to unwanted light and all sorts of other things that could prohibit any images from appearing.  i will be getting the film processed and posting the resulting images. i am incredibly curious to see what i saw or tried to capture then. little time capsules, waiting to breathe a bit. it's my guess that most of the images will be personal subject matter, rather than projects for school, but we will see.  i am excited. stay tuned.
