It has been a long and cold winter this year. I don't know if it's the weather or just the over all craziness of my schedule, but I have been feeling so exhausted lately. Every night, when I get home from work, what I really want to do is curl up on the couch with a big puffy blanket and fall asleep beside a purring kitty. But instead I attempt to keep the momentum of progress reeling - I run, make dinner, scrub up, do photo/scan/blog stuff, and somehow squeeze in some personal time. Hopefully Spring will come sooner than later, bringing sunshine, energy, and the need to wear more dresses.

This morning, I did an interview with Attic Photography's Hitochi, in Japan. It was a little random, but a lot of fun. The questions were very nostalgic and it got me thinking about way back when I shot nothing but Polaroids and road tripped through old Florida. Those memories are razor cut sharp and thank God for that. I can still recall, clear as crystal, exploring Sanibel island and blowing through packs of Time Zero, as if I had an endless supply.

We all have beginnings and sometimes it's damn nice to look back on them.

  1. Hi Colie, I've just been looking through your old posts and this one has really struck me. So nicely written. Nostalgia is a great resource to draw from, and it somehow pushes you forward rather than drags you back :) Beautiful photographs too by the way.

    And thank you for your lovely comment on my blog! :)
