Fewer things I love more than the color red on a film photograph.

Favorite smells: hot dry grass in the sun, bergamot, orange blossom, leaves of the bitter orange tree, Meyer lemon, any iris ever (try digging one up and smelling its roots), baked bread, fish markets, ionones (aromachemicals that smell of woody violets), frankincense, coastal redwood, and this last one is weird, but European gas/petrol…every smell is a small adventure to be had, it would seem. Would love to hear what any of your most loved scents/smells are? πŸ‘ƒπŸΌπŸ‘ƒπŸ½πŸ‘ƒπŸΎπŸ‘ƒπŸΏβ˜οΈ#scratchnsniff

Yesterday swam in the clearest mountain lake, fell asleep under stars to campfire smell. Today bought a western hat that I will wear attempt to wear unironically. Happy summer!

I shot a roll of film twice by accident. Red envelopes from my dad, and one of my sisters in the Arizona desert. 🌡

Does anyone ever get in legitimate trouble for trespassing? Referring to North America mostly. Most of the better things I've seen have been beyond signs posted to ward off the curious, beyond chainlink fences, past dead ends and down unmarked roads.

When I took this picture I was listening to a lot of Norwegian ambient jazz a la Arve Henriksen, still some of the loveliest music I know. Without having been to the country I imagined this is what it felt like. Still haven't made it there, but it's firm on the list. What music have you been listening to lately? 🎺

Often feel the need to go off the grid, delete all social media presences, retreat from the world...alas the need to share the more beautiful and strange things I've seen wins in the end. Here's a shot from Montmartre, a 2h47m train ride from London, where I lived when I took this photo. #wherenext

One of my favorite pictures of @wrenees, chasing the last of the light at some bridge somewhere in Southern California I've forgotten the name of. Does anyone recognize it?

If I could make music/paint/write poems, all those things would still be about places like these. πŸ’›

πŸ‡«πŸ‡΄Even the humble garden sheds where fish are hung to dry are brimming with color and texture. This is likely the last of my shots from the Faroe Islands, though I'll be returning to nearby Denmark fairly soon. Anywhere in Copenhagen and nearby I must see? Thanks πŸ’›πŸ˜™

It's been said 'If you want to see what someone fears losing, watch what they photograph.' About all I photograph is the ocean, and for a reason. It's where I go to feel grounded and to find inspiration, and where I feel at home regardless of place. Not to mention, sea creatures are the best! (Still waiting to someday hug a seal.) Do what you can to preserve our lovely oceans. #worldoceansday πŸ™πŸ³πŸ¦‘
