Charlie Murphey Leaving Town, January 2016

It’s a sad, sad day when a good friend moves away. Even in those sit­u­a­tions where you know the move is a good one, that a fresh start will help your friend grow and find new com­mu­ni­ty, it’s still a dif­fi­cult scene. For­tu­nate­ly, some­times that friend knows lots of oth­er friends and they all come togeth­er and throw a big par­ty with lots of music and even the friend him­self gets on stage and opens up for everyone.

From Char­lie Mur­phey’s last show (at least…for now) in Nashville.

 

High Watt, Jan­u­ary 2016.

Low Water at Cook Public Use Area, December 2015

With record* low lev­els in Per­cy Priest, there were hun­dreds more yards of shore­line to explore in Decem­ber 2015. These were tak­en with that same won­der­ful bulk roll of T‑Max 400, long expired. I’ve been pulling rolls off of this for three years now — I’m like­ly get­ting close to the end, and it’s been great to put this film to use some twen­ty-five years after it was orig­i­nal­ly intend­ed to be processed.
