Those moments before you say goodbye become more reflective, meaningful and I guess selfish in the attempt to grasp good things...wisdom...that gold for betterment before it’s gone. Then you think, “Is this moment really about me?”. “Where is your camera?”. The first question after the updates on work, life and family. “I brought a couple as always” reaching into my camera bag that always seems too practically sterile in aesthetic for moments worth capturing on camera.
He’s repositioned himself before I’ve suggested any next step. We both know. It’s the last. And my first notion is to apologise as I explain loading the cartridge will take a moment. Unaware that he appreciates the moment, every moment. “It’s film that’s why”. “Good”, with a blink and a slight smile, eyes encouragingly watching the spool wind, every click a count down. “And you will have the film later?”. I didn’t understand In the moment what this really meant until now and why the thought seemingly brought solitude. That after this, once gone, I’d have this still. Not forgotten.
I took the shot. Our last. His last. “Good”. Hold fast. Love and let God judge. Build on things eternal and let no one take your crown. - A. Facey

Alright last one for the @natgeo contest! This shot is one of my proudest photos. This is a California sea lion just off the beach on Ektachrome slide film. I took this shot on a Nikonos III, which is meter-less. The visibility was beautiful and blue this day and I remember thinking how glad I was to be shooting slide film in order to capture the incredible colors. This sea lion interacted with me for a few minutes, dive bombing me before turning at the last possible second before coming right back to see if I was still there. California sea lions are so playful and curious, their behavior makes them one of my favorite animals to photograph, especially the pups #natgeo100contest
I have nothing clever for a caption this time, though I do have some fun ghost stories (next post). I was inspired by an oil painting of a stormy sea when editing this. I'd been sitting on these photographs for 2-3 weeks thinking, "This could be better, this could be better." Venice you're beautiful and incredibly difficult to compose, the stark absence of roads is enough to throw anyone off, but what a place to be stumped at. It's a city that makes you bring down the camera from your eyes and demand you *look*. I did nothing but lie by the docks idly for four days, face up, reading Leonardo Da Vinci's biography and stories, my 5th city in Italy, my 14th day, and I felt the desire to make art returning to my hands. Another thing I must bring up - It's incredibly safe. The moment you get off the train onto the island, you know.

Home. Madrid nos recibió hace poco más de 5 años y
todavía hoy paseamos por sus calles, viendo la cúpula azul de invierno y no podemos creer que vivimos aquí. Few es parte de ella 🤩
