Here you can find work in progress, Holga photos, travel photos, snaps from around town and, occasionally, ones from the file boxes that have never found a spot to call home. The nice thing about a blog is that I can show you new work in a less formal fashion than on my web page. I post on a regular basis, so check back. You can follow me on Instagram @ jonnycakes7

Found this one in one of my storage boxes! Hawaii, Summer, 1994. I made this photo with an Olympus Pen F, half frame camera and Tri-X black and white film. The print was hand colored using Marshall's pencils and paints.

Always willing subjects! Having kids like Olive and Cooper make it easy to be a father! Happy Father's Day to me!

Southern Gothic

Lafayette Cemetery in New Orleans is full of stories. It's a great place to slowly move through. There's history and tragedy carved into the grave markers.

Lafayette Cemetery in New Orleans is full of stories. There’s history and tragedy carved into the tombs and grave stones. It’s a great place to slowly wander about and snap photos.

Flowers, Mardi Gras beads, small, smooth stones. muted tones.

The faded artificial flowers and the worn marble and brick caught my eye.

When the tour groups departed the footpaths were empty. 

Looking Back

Lately I've been looking back through my storage boxes. I'm putting together a group of photographs for the 4th of July Centennial Celebration at the Farm. I found this little gem from 1999 and had to post it!

Roadside Attractions

After using Amtrak to get from NYC to DC to Charleston we rented a car and drove to NOLA via Savannah. A few scenes from our southern road trip.

In the interest of time most of the trip was on big interstate highways. When we did travel on the smaller highways we usually came across a cool spot. This is a public beach on the Florida Panhandle. I love the retro look.

The Battery

A walking tour on The Battery. The Battery is a defensive seawall and promenade in Charleston, S.C. It was named for a Civil War artillery battery at the site. Needless to say Civil War history is huge in Charleston.
