Walking in Circles



During the Christmas Holiday we took a trip to the Menil Museum in Houston (a wonderful museum), then walked over to the University of St. Thomas where we found this maze.

  5. i absolutely adore this. what do you primarily shoot with? do you still do your own developing? i’m trying to convince my mom to let me create a darkroom. she’s ratherrrr skeptical though.

  6. Hi Enfin, I am so glad you like the picture. I am sad to say I am shooting digital and processing in PhotoShop. Just today I pulled out all my old gear and my Dad’s, so I am ready for some film shoots, but no darkroom sadly. I did grow up watching my Dad with his, that is all he did. It was a great time. I also took a darkroom class in college. One day I hope to go back to that (I still have all my Dad’s old equipment). I hope you can convince your Mom, it is a great creative way to express yourself- oh and don’t forget all the Chemistry involved ;) (I know I winked, but really there is- after checking our your site, i can tell you are very creative and would really experiment in the darkroom). Check craigslist. Good luck -Kim

  7. Really nice black&white. It’s not sad to say you are shooting DSLR as soon as the result is good :)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
