This past weekend was a complete storm. Literally and figuratively. I had a four day weekend and every day of it was phenomenal. I went to see Ha Ha Tonka unexpectedly on Friday night, Saturday I helped a friend move stuff into his new art studio, Sunday I saw Father John Misty, which was...well beyond fun. And yesterday, I relaxed and did some art. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend and it was just what I needed.
One of the most awesome parts of the weekend was a crazy storm we encountered. The sky became dark within a few minutes. The sky was this amazing color of blue and my friend described it as looking like the sky was under water, which I thought was spot on. After a few minutes of darkness, a crazy dust storm started and made the West Bottoms look like some sort of post-apocalyptic wasteland. Once I started driving I ended up having to pull over for several minutes because the rain was coming down so hard I couldn't even see. This might sound awful to some people, but thunderstorms are one of my favorite parts of Summer and they get me so excited!
They always really make me appreciate the Earth that I live on. It is unpredictable, beautiful and dangerous. Three of the best qualities...
So this was a few images I was able to snap before the storm got really bad.
I recently got a bunch of film developed and two of the rolls ended up having several exposed shots. I actually really like how some of them turned out regardless. I think that's the beautiful thing about film. You have control over what you shoot and how you shoot it, but sometimes you don't have control over how they turn out. I'm still really learning when it comes to film, it's not my strong suit, but I'm hoping with time, I'll get better.
