Wanderlust 
8th Anniversary Trip
Washington DC







My hometown is Washington DC. 

I’ve been back to the area many times but not as a “tourist”. On this trip, for our 8th wedding anniversary, Frank and I viewed the monuments, including the newest one of Martin Luther King, Jr. We toured the Tidal Basin, the White House, the Capital, Arlington Cemetery, Iwo Jima and the Washington Monument, along with all the other tourists. On this trip, we wanted to ponder our democracy, where to some degree, we felt we have taken or freedom for granted. It was a trip of a lifetime, grounding, clarifying and inspirational. It seems fitting to post this iconic imagery on Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday.

I took a few photos on our trip which I wanted to share here. 95% of these are film images with just a few shot with a FujiFilm xT10. I shot the film images with the Rollei, a Contax 645 and the Horizon, which is a panoramic 35mm camera loaned to me by Lomography to try out, (loved!). The film images were shot with Kodak film and processed by Indie Film Lab. Next time, I’ll bring a selfie stick too, promise.






Good morning DC, it’s good to see you!

Sunrise at the Lincoln Memorial looking across the Reflecting Pool towards the Washington Monument, epic. More images coming soon! Gosh, I need a benefactor to help me process all the film I shot. Lol!

Thanks Lev Kuperman and Ryan Brown for bringing WRKSHP to Brooklyn! It was so much fun hanging with and chatting with photographers from all over the world. Where else does that happen?

Also many thanks to Tim Ryugo from Kodak for the film and to Josh Moates and Jonathon Kohn from Indie Film for developing and scanning the film! When does that happen? 

So excited to share some photos. These were shot with the Rollei and Kodak film and the FujiFilm xT10. Thanks to Eric Floberg and Meredith Washburn for the photos of me, both shooting with film for the first time.

And then there was the TWRKSHP!

This was the second annual Rendezvous Retreat of women photographers who also shoot with film, pretty cool right! Lots of familiar faces and a few new ones.

I brought three cameras with me, the Contax 645, the Holga and my brand new Fujifilm xT10.

A great big thank you to Jen Fariello, Carrie Patterson Schrauder, Kate Headley and Christina McNeill for putting this retreat together! Also a big thank you to La Forge and all our incredible sponsors including Fuji film, in which most of these images were shot and Fast Foto for theses awesome film scans. 

Thank you, thank you to all the incredible sponsors!
