I'm falling in love

So far I've been in Hyderabad for about 8 hours. Just enough time to shower, get something to eat, and start working with the team.

And yet, in that brief time, Hyderabad has bamboozled me.

Maybe it's the jet lag. Maybe it's the incredibly warm greetings. But realistically, we all know what it is.

It's the incredible amount of vegan food.

I'm a little spoiled on the Google campus, where everything is clearly labeled and inclusive food is a priority. But even the flight here had vegan entrees! I think all the American meat eaters would riot if an airline tried such an offering domestically.

I'm tired, I'm jetlagged, and it's ridiculously hot out, but even so: I'm h*ckin happy to be here.

From my zine: A Life Worth Living (WIP)

I made a short test zine via Google Photos last year, because sometimes we all need a reminder about what makes our lives worth living. And I wanted to try a test zine. But mostly the first thing.

It's not a consistent zine. Different formats, cameras, subjects, and color vs. black and white. But my life isn't consistent. It's a mess of moments, one after another. And I think it's pretty damn beautiful.



















Some things I've learned so far from shooting film

The Holga 135 is a very forgiving camera.

Ektar 100 is a gorgeous film but ISO 100 means you really should shoot it in broad daylight if shooting at box speed.

Shooting daily life on digital produces this urge to make things Instagram-worthy. Shooting daily life on film means taking things as they are.

Instant film can be really beautiful, and a nice change of pace.


Keep rolls of 120 film tightly wound. First-time shooters, I'm looking at you!

A good lab is worth every penny. Not all labs are equal!

A good scan is hard to find.

Shooting film costs money with each press of the shutter, but don't be precious about it. Treat it as a gift. Make mistakes.
