Bliss Blog


Once again I was so excited to be featured on Bliss’ blog.

Mrs. French wrote this about my work:

soooo…as i go through april rocha’s amazing etsy shop i come up with ways to decorate my bare walls. at the moment i am thinking i would love to create some type of grouping with these…decisions, decisions! this photo-lady has too much talent. which is why, yet again, i am so surprised she chose my bliss. my sponsors are truly some of the most magnificent women i know…or sort of know. so truly honored to have ms. april rocha in my little group of big talent.

she has a way of combining beautiful softness, with proud architecture and joyful ferris wheels…i can’t believe all of these masterpieces come from the same place. such a lovely shop, from such an gifted photographer…thank you dear april for sharing your talent and standing by my little blog.

Once again, thank you Mrs. French.

Ace Hotel and Swim Club April Rocha Happenings Kodachrome Why I Love Film

The Last Kodachrome Show at the Rayko Photo Center



I am pleased to announce my participation in THE LAST KODACHROME show at the Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco, California.

 From Rayko’s website:

In 1935 KODACHROME was released as a 6mm home movie film, then for 35mm cameras in 1936, to huge success. In the summer of 2009, Kodak announced that Kodachrome was being “retired, concluding its 74-year run as a photography icon,” with the final rolls hitting retailers shelves in early September of that year. December 2010 is the last month that Kodachrome will ever be processed, so in a juried exhibition, RayKo Photo Center celebrates the life of Kodachrome, considered by many the greatest color film ever made, the subject of popular song, and the only film to have a park named after it (Kodachrome Basin State Park, Utah). It’s the end of an era…come pay tribute to this beautiful film and the powerful images made with it.

My image was shot on Kodachrome film at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs, California last summer. The show opened last week and runs through January 21, 2011.
