6/18. A clear path 🌲🌲
This name is ironic considering how the path I followed out of this forest is not clear at all in this photo. At least it’s evident that years of hikers and skiers have taken branches off the trees adjacent to this well-used trail. 🏞
Some of you are probably wondering why are these photos blue? Here’s your answer: The film I used was 16 years expired, meaning it was probably manufactured around ~2000. There are Red, Green and Blue layers in film, and their sensitivity degrades over time. The red layer is the first to disappear, then the green, and slowly blue. This is the same for all film. 🎞 In this situation specifically, I underestimated just how degraded the film was, and didn’t give it enough light for how desensitized it was. Effectively, the blue layer was all that was exposed, so I’m working with a faint black and white image made out of what was once blue light in a scene. 🏔🌲 Lastly, film stock is a “negative” and is the opposite colour of what it’s exposed to, so it has to be inverted. Film stock is a brown colour, so when you invert it, you get the cyan colour you see here! That’s about all, thanks for reading! Let me know what you think down below 📝👍🏼
19/365; working on finishing up some copper cuffs for this weekends local market. All of our copper cuffs are; hammered out, filed, shaped, hammered with a designed metal stamp, patina, and bent to shape. ✨🌲
(n.): A German, untranslatable word, vorfreude is defined as the intense euphoric sensation you experience from thinking about future plans and daydreams. This beautiful feeling is a natural reaction the human mind manifests from expectations of future pleasures and joyful anticipations, such as planning a trip, going on a date, and many other fulfilling, life-changing events.
Excited to be alive, + so excited for the rest of my life.
Gratitude gratitude gratitude for this snowy mountain town and this amazing community. What a special gift to live 5 mins from a ski playground where you can get on the lift on any random day and ski a few lines with someone you've only nodded hello to at the grocery store. Next thing you know, they're a new friend that you've shared an epic morning with.🌈☝️🎿
It’s really hard for me to see all these changes happening to the Earth and feeling like I can’t do anything major to reverse some of these negative effects. I’m just hoping it’s an off season for snow because I remember last year when this photo was taken, we had several feet stick around. With daily changes and fingers crossed I’m trying for positive change to come! •
Can you see those skiers on the left?!
