I decided to write this article because I mentioned on my instagram that I often took my cameras with me to appointments as a therapy camera. Kind of like a companion dog. I received many messages from people saying that they suffer from anxiety as well and they were going to give this a try.
I took this photo while I was in my wheelchair at the grocery store. I hate that I still have to use it, but walking for more than a few minutes causes me too much pain and the tingling in my legs gets worse. So for now it is what it is. One advantage that… Continue reading One Shot with Aly : Shopping in the Time of Covid
Today I am going to chat with my friend Danielle about film photography. I am excited to get the chance to bend her ear. We became friends on instagram because we have a lot in common, and I don’t just mean our love of felines. I think like myself, she has an eye for all… Continue reading A Snapshot of the Film Community: A Conversation with Danielle Wrobleski
I’ve been feeling extremely tired lately I think from the medication I am on for Crohn’s Disease, and just from the disease in general. It’s been really challenging for me to go out in the summer heat to take photos. I can’t really explain the type of fatigue that comes with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

An old ad stated that it was made of molded shock-resistant plastic from General Electric. When I researched this camera,… Continue reading the Beacon Two Twenty-Five

It is located on the water next to a boat store, and I pass it every week when I go to the chiropractor. Every-time I pass it… Continue reading One Shot with Aly – the Abandoned Hotel
Think about having to come out to family, which is essentially announcing the way you chose to love another person. I would just like you to imagine having to fear holding hands in public, or to be told that God considers you to be evil.
This shot was taken with my Canon FTb on Ilford HP5 400 film. I am working on a review/article about my experience with this camera so I took it along with me to a doctors appointment. I was in a moving car when I quickly took this picture. I pass this house every time I… Continue reading One Shot with Aly – the Triangle House
I recently wrote an article about the Anscoflex in which I expressed that I wasn't crazy about the camera. Can the sequel to it redeem the Anscoflex?
