It’s been too long… Part I

Dear friends,

Sorry for the long silence. I know that many of you only follow my work via this blog and I’ve neglected it all year so far. I’ve only been posting on Instagram. But I really miss writing blog posts! My excuse is that I had to do a lot more online work than usual during Covid. The thought of spending more time than necessary in front of a computer was not appealing.

So what have I been up to during the long and ongoing pandemic? I wrote a few books, gave a lot of online speaking engagements and continued to take my camera on daily adventures. I spent most of the winter months on frozen lakes for my On Ice series, it was a super fun. I also did a lot of more contemplative photography with Object Du Jour. I also continued shooting for my Car People series and accompanied my friend Charlie on some crazy Xtreme Typing adventures. I was able to travel back home to Normandy, France a few times and even made a quick stop in Paris last week for the first time since March 2020. It felt so normal again!!

Best of all, I finally started teaching face to face workshops again in June! I can’t even tell you how much I missed the workshops! Teaching on the streets was like a breath of fresh air. Now I am excited to teach a busy sold-out Fall season and new exciting adventures in 2022.

Today I want to share some recent pics with you, but where do I start?? So I randomly selected a few B&W moments of the past few months: The frozen lakes of Minnesota, the streets of Minneapolis, the big car show, the beach in Normandy and even a frame or two from Paris.

I’ll do a second post for the color moments, because there were more color moments this year than ever before… You’ll see!

I hope you enjoyed this 2021 B&W sampler, all shot with the X100V at 23mm.

I’ll be back soon!

  3. Great to see you back! As I am not a fan of Instagram, and rarely look at it, I have missed your blog; it is always very inspiring.
