Merry-Go-Rounds, Zip Lines, and Tee-Pees

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

In anticipation of returning for a week of camp at Forest Home, I went back through my archives of when I first started working there.

Of course, I had to re-edit these photos in my current vintage look. It's an interesting coincidence that some of the photos couldn't be redone today. The merry-go-round, zip line and tee-pees are now part of Forest Home history.

I was reminded of the fact that I am not a photographer, but a historian. Many of the events I photograph only happen once in a lifetime. There is a careful and humble attitude that needs to be adopted before every event; knowing that these are memories to last forever.

Timeless or Not

I like to think I appreciate the static. I am relieved when I can come back to something and it hasn't changed.

As trendy, hip and progressive I find my interests, I always come back to trying to achieve the timeless; whether it's something I photograph, design, or even write.

I went back through some photos and attempted to age them. Yes, it is pretty and current to make photos look vintage. However, it's fun to look at these and know that they were taken with a digital camera.
