My wife and I usually hangout at this cafe in Middletown called Brew Bakers when we need to get some stuff done. This kid usually comes into the cafe to get a drink with his Papas. I wanted to snag a quick photograph before he left. Watch out ladies!!

I'm very fond of this angle of still life work when it comes to photographing chair legs. Kinda abstract and it all about form. It's one of those images that I like to do every once in awhile.

I still don't feel comfortable being in these spaces. I can't think of one person who is. Again, trying to stay as healthy as I can is a must. You just never know what's going to happen to you.

There's this bookstore that you can find at Real Artways that sell mostly used books. I got chance to grab a copy of some Andre Kertesz work as well as some Henri Cartier Bresson. The guy at the desk was kind enough to let me take his picture. I would suggest anyone who lives in Connecticut to check out this gem for sure.

I have this fascination of photographing images of plants. Especially when they're emitted from window light. They have a nice texture that I'm very fond of and the tones that it provides is really unique. Something that will continue to do in the next few months.

This was the first image I took when I just got my camera. It was sort of a test to see if it even worked or not. It was bought from an amazon seller SSORRR who had hooked it up with some film left over. When I did my initial research I was skeptical that this wasn't going to provide me what I needed, but I realized it gave me more than what I asked for. It took a bit to get used to, but afterwards I fell in love with it.

Another overly exposed image. This image was again testing the SX70's capabilities of light inside the household. I realize that the light emitting the kitchen of my place is pretty intense so I could certainly use some back off on the aperture. As I get into the process of making these images I've learnt more about how I want my images to look like. This image was certainly a test.

I've always wanted to do a project of just skies. I think I'll dedicate a whole box of Polaroid of just skies. It's been on my mind lately and I think that I'll pursue it more later this year when the sun decides to hang out more.

I met this person at that Open Hartford Studios event and she was exhibiting some images and mixed media pieces. Young artists like herself are interesting just because they show a new outlook in the world without any barriers. You can find her on her Instagram.

There were many trial and error moments on this camera, but I've managed to find a sweet spot to it. This image was one of those failures that I seem to like for some reason. I know it's a little over exposed, but I think it has some charm to it.

Whenever I get a chance in the morning or during lunch I do my best to use my time to take some images. There's this river that passes through East Hartford that I head to here and there. In the morning a bit of fog was emitting from the waters and I think it was a chance for me to just take in the moment and get a picture. I think I felt the presence of Hiroshi Sugimoto on this one lol.
