Ghosts of Summers Past


I take a lot of photos because I like to keep them around as memories. However, I never seem to look back through them as often as I think I will (or as often as I would like).

And as my memory gets longer, events tend to blur together. Did that happen a year ago? Three? Five?


Around this time two years ago I was having a bit of a staycation at The Standard. I saw Philip Seymour Hoffman walking his bike and conversing with someone on a West Village street. I wandered through a garden and met a healer. I had a much more experimental photographic style.

I had forgotten all these things until now.

What did you do last summer? Two summers ago? Ten?

Also: wow, my hair used to be crazy.

    It’s so true, I rarely look back on old photos and the days of putting together books and organizing prints have disappeared from my life. I also feel like I spend less time with the DSLR and more time perfecting my instagrams.

    Also didn’t realized you revamped this! Sorry, I’ve clearly been missing out.

    I know isn’t weird how we completely forget about whole events and days and things that we did, I have thought of this before. Ha and guess what I saw Fred Armisen in the building I work in, I went out to use the restroom and there he was waiting for the elevator on our floor. Crazy.

      That’s amazing! I would love to see Fred Armisen somewhere on the street in New York. Although honestly I never notice celebrities… I probably walk past them all the time.
