Spring in the Orchards

Spring in the Orchards

My city is notorious for only having two seasons: hot and cold. The only real sign of a traditional spring is the blooming of the almond trees (I think they’re almond trees anyway).

Plus the people in front of … Continue reading

Photographers would process color film in the wrong chemicals in order to get more interesting … Continue reading
