new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

light of my life, revisited

light of my life
like it? click it!
this is one of my favorite pictures ever, from 1997. nix's father shot it.

i scanned it and and converted it to BW, processing it slightly.

we slept like this often then... i liked to have her close to where she'd been for 9 months, and she seemed to relax.

i also like that my mom's in the picture, closeby.

happy mother's day, everyone.


  1. to all of us... everyone has a mom!

  2. Wonderful framing and wickedly geometrical with the sofas and the tables in full counterpoint. Absolutely love it.

  3. yeah... bummer that i didn't take it :D

  4. You're in it—it wouldn't be the same without you ;)

    Χαμογελάω Ελένη, γιατί ήταν η πιο αγαπημένη μου στάση ύπνου όταν ο γιος μου ήταν σ' αυτή την ηλικία. Θυμάμαι που, μετά από ώρες, πόναγε η πλάτη μου από την ακινησία και παρόλα αυτά δεν κουνιόμουν για να μην τον ξυπνήσω και σταματήσω να νοιώθω την ανάσα του πάνω μου. :)

  6. ... έτσι... έτσι...
