Tether Cincinnati

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Tonight was the launch of the Tether Sourcebook, bringing together photographers, wardrobe stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists, models, creative directors, and fashion designers in Cincinnati and celebrating their work.

There was a huge mountain of donuts so I didn’t take a ton of photos, but this was among the favorites.

I should probably hang a stocking

With the crush to get the event off the ground last Sunday, I’ve been switching gears and jumping headfirst back into work. So I’m hanging around the studio and apartment more, this means more pictures of my cat and fireplace.

I should note, I needed to verify how to spell mantel when posting this.

Also note: All the plants in this photo are not real.

Always worth a snapshot: Malls during holidays

Mall Santa

Not my best Santa composition (previously and also previously), but it’s always fun to see.

The mall was packed this Monday. I wondered if all these folks had jobs and then I remembered, I was there too.

I was there to pick up a new computer that was over two years old, because I agree with everything Marco Arment says in this piece: The best laptop ever made. And like a good pair of shoes or a shirt that is super comfortable, one should buy them while they’re still available.

Now I can be the curmudgeon that can avoid USB and SD card reader adapters for another few years.

I’m lucky if I can find my keys, wallet and phone, much less a dongle.

A Wonderful Moment

A Wonderful Moment

So A Wonderful Moment happened and it was, well, wonderful. The ask was, find some joy captured in a photo and send it in with the story.

Over 225 submissions later, the day drew nearer and it all came together. We digitally printed everyone’s photos and hung them on the walls with captions. And in the bathroom of People’s Liberty we set up a darkroom that somehow actually worked! Folks visiting the exhibit were encouraged to find a photo on their phone and print it out on the spot and take it home.

It was pretty magical to see the reactions to the process. Hope to do it all over again, but first? A long nap.

All this was a part of Intermission, celebrating the halfway point of the philanthropic experiment.

There were so many good shots that we developed throughout the day, but this one changed my mind about what types of images to print. One is clearly a SnapChat image with text and zany filters. Printed out traditionally? It’s all the more wonderful.

Good stuff.

The start of a darkroom

Saturday, December 9, 2017


We’ve had a darkroom at Wire & Twine for years to make our screens, but never the capability to do black and white photography prints.

Today? All the pieces we’ve been collecting over the years came together and I poured my first batch of processing chemicals and met with general success, printing photos directly from my phone onto the paper.

These would form the take home gifts for everyone that sent in a photo to the Wonderful Moment project.

As part of the People’s Liberty Intermission, Sam Conover had an evening called “Noted.”

She asked folks to send in “positive, uplifting words, quotes, reminders and doodles of why we do what we do” and then put them on Post-It® notes all over the space downtown.

Edie on chair

When work fills up the day, sometimes I realize I haven’t snapped a photo yet. Then I see Edie and think, this will have to do.

A Wonderful Moment

I know exactly when posting starts to slip around here. It’s when I’m packing the days with lots of work.

In this case, pulling together photos for an event where folks sent in a photo that represented “A Wonderful Moment“.

Response was fantastic, in part because I think we’re in need of a little more wonderful these days… And yes, I’m referencing the messed up split in society where facts are twisted and our country is being led down a very dark path that feels devoid of love for our fellow man, health, education, and planet.

So yeah, it’s been nice to pull together these images. More on that later.

I also sent off The Price Hill Edition into production on this day. Momentous in itself because there were so many contributors for this neighborhood photo collection.

More on that later too!
