Reflection 3: Instant Mashed Potatoes

I can go get a microwave dinner and be eating it in 3 minutes. 

I can make instant coffee.

I can go learn the rules for curling in a few clicks on youtube.

| We’re the kings of instant mashed potatoes. |   

Think you want to shoot film?

Forget the instant mashed potatoes, you have to grow your own potatoes and mash them by hand when you shoot film.  

| No way around it. |  

And yeah I gotta relearn this everyday.      

Housekeeping: So this is the last of the Reflection posts from Colorado. We’ll be back next week with some new conversations.  

Enjoy some recent photos.  All 8×10 photographs shot on xray film.
