A Day at the Beach

When about to embark on a mini UK tour with my friend’s band, we were loading up our van and I found a strip of 3 images on 120 negative film. I’m a photographer with access to a decent scanner, so this is what I found.

Lost Our Minds

I found this picture as I stumbled from the R Bar one Saturday night. Although the picture was covered in snails and pollen I knew it was worth saving. It wasn’t until I flipped the picture over to read the note that I realized it was really worth sharing.

The Eye of God

Found in a house that once belonged to Thomas Hornsby Ferril, the late poet laureate of Denver.

Found on a rainy sidewalk circa 1983.

My mom is a wedding photographer and I often help out. I found this along the Beaver Lake walking trail when we did some of the couple’s alone pictures.

Damaged Heart

Found in a box full of fire damaged goods donated to Goodwill. In 1992, there was a fire at my apartment. Everything was damaged, and I gave it all to Goodwill to see if they could salvage anything. Years later, in 1999, after going through four peoples’ hands, a friend of mine showed me this … Continued
