For the second half of November I spent a good amount of time going through photos I took over the past year. Occasionally -- especially when I'm traveling -- I take maybe a few hundred photos and going through all of them takes some time and isn't as fun as getting out with my camera.
Having not taken a lot of photos in the last few months and spending a little more time at home lately kicked me into gear to get cracking on some of this year's photos -- many of them taken in South Carolina and Kansas this summer.
The photos in this post are a preview of some of the photos that will be making their debut at the show. Are you coming? You totally should!

*with entertainment by The Venice Gas House Trolley, which "hearkens back to the times when hipsters and cool-cats would chill out digging ecstatic poets and musicians and then aggressively explodes through the present and into the future with vocal effects, bass, and twisting rhythms."
I especially like documenting things that are rarely seen or are disappearing. The design sensibility of days gone by tends to make me swoon, as do rural Midwestern landscapes. I primarily use digital cameras, although I do have a great fondness for toy cameras and Polaroids, and use those as well. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work!
