burn in hell.

the subject of this image is an old matchbook from a concrete burial vault company. my grandparents had about twenty-five of them in the house. their generation was taught to save everything, because you never know when you might need it. and items that were complementary usually ended up being taken in multiples.

The full story of this image is available on my website under the NEW stories tab.

mixtape.

right, left, right.

I've always been fascinated with locks. combination, key, doesn't matter. i'd own hundreds if I could. & nothing's better than one whose patina has been created by countless turns of human fingers.

I very much appreciate the dedication that went into keeping the combo tag in existence. although well worn, it is essential. except maybe for the person who owned it and committed it to memory.

My son Iggy told me that I should name it "lock, with paper". I see his point, but I decided to harken back to the first days of learning how to open these things.

if you're happy and you know it.

monkey see.

step off.

these @converse one star shoes cushioned the steps of my son as he began making his way around this world more independently. every scuff, every bit of loose thread, the faded sections of canvas, and the worn rubber soles were earned with hours of play and curiosity. he’s a big reason there are gaps between my photos these days. it felt good to just be dad and Todd for a while. to spend time with my son Iggy, my wife @hellrazor and our two goofy dogs.

p.s. the title of this image is taken from my sons favorite cartoon, regular show.
