I’ve shot a bunch of film lately and the sky falls more and more every day.

Accompanying playlist of music I’ve put on while working lately is over here ︎︎︎ if you want to spend some time in my honkytonk hellhole brain.

I love corny shit and corny shit loves me. Losing your hangups with age is such a blessing. This machine runs on country pop, romance novels, and dirty joke t-shirts. You can take them from my cold, dead, entertained hands.

Mid-June I attended my first APP conference in Las Vegas for work. It was very much a “long time listener, first time caller” situation as I’ve been following the gathering online for at least the last decade. Body modification and film photography both placed themselves in the forefront of my mind early in life and it’s incredibly cool to sit back and acknowledge that I’ve built a life with those as the keystones. Pictured above is Paul King giving a guided tour of this year’s Body Piercing Archive exhibit on the origins of the UK piercing scene. Incredibly cool shit for a nerd of my disposition. Kind of what dreams are made of; 11/10.

This was my first time in Vegas, and visually, it did not dissapoint.

Lost some money on slots, the way god intended. 

I don’t have an extroverted bone in my body (prior to two drinks) so I ended up spending a good amount of time decompressing alone in my hotel room. I was initally feeling kind of guilty about that, but in hindsight I’m fairly sure it’s what spared me from Covid.

When Shania Twain’s Vegas residency is in your hotel...you go see Shania. This was the best night of my life and I did not calm down for even one minute.

Last night in Vegas.

As of the day this photo was taken the US supreme court has overturned Roe v Wade. I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir somewhat when I underscore how disgusting it is to institute forced birth in a country without any paid maternity leave, universal healthcare, reliable social safety nets to speak of, or even baby formula on shelves. The best compiled resource I’ve found for donating to your local abortion fund is donations4abortion.com. All of my profit from print sales this month will be going to the Abortion Liberation Fund of PA, receipt in my next blog post.

Bodily automy is paramount. The people of this country deserve safe and accesible abortion for free, on demand, without apology. That any of this is up for debate is so sinister and it will not stop here.

Prints available here as always, with this months proceeds going to Abortion Liberation Fund of PA.

It would appear I’ve finally flown too close to the sun and hit my upload limit to this site so there’s some bonus photos in my print store that I couldn’t put up here. I’ll be reworking and reorganizing some pages on this site so I can keep updating this blog, but I’m always on the lookout for the perfect photo blogging platform and always open to suggestions.

Until next time...hold on to your rights and sanity.
