How to beat the Monday blues? Simple, fill your fountain pen with a turquoise blue ink, and share a photo that has similar feels. Have a great week everyone.

Any meeting with Jeff Veen is worth capturing on film. We recently grabbed some coffee, talked about the Internet, both old and new. We talked about design. And we talked about having graybeards. This moment, captured on Kodak Tri-X 400.
Made with my iPhoneXS. And modified with my bespoke preset without any editing to the original photos. I am really loving the simplicity of using the Lightroom CC, my preset and the iPhone for my random travel photos. It would be interesting to see how these match up against my film camera and Tri-X film.
“Under the thinning fog the surf curled and creamed, almost without sound, like a thought trying to form inself on the edge of consciousness.” ― Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep.
“because he had no place he could stay in without getting tired of it and because there was nowhere to go but everywhere, keep rolling under the stars…” ― Jack Kerouac, On The Road
