40: February 6, 2015

And there you have it. Forty years old, with my girls, their forty gifts, and the thought that as tough as 40 was to swallow, don’t even get me started on 50…

40 Days until 40: Day 40, 2014

We’re nearly there… This photo was taken in May of last year, at the International Federation of Film Archives Congress in Skopje, Macedonia, as I presented the results of some voting during my first year at the Congress. It feels like yesterday that I was a student, reading about events like this, but there you […]

One of the first photos Grace ever took, as we sat in the office in West L.A. She was holding my SLR, which seemed like it weighed about half what she did, and she struggled to hold it up and get her finger on the shutter at the same time. I feel old in this […]

One day-old Lucy sits in my arms as we rest at the hospital in Santa Monica. Two kids, officially gray-haired. I’m pretty sure I’m not actually asleep, and for the first year or so of her life, it felt like Lucy wasn’t, either. She’s completely different now, of course, but those early days, the four […]

A photo I took using my phone, probably in direct violation of the rules of the Musée Hergé, on March 10, 2011, when I visited the museum during our European adventure with Grace. A pilgrimage to the new museum dedicated to Tintin’s creator wasn’t in the cards for our Paris/Amsterdam itinerary, so I took a […]

It’s funny, looking at this photo of Grace now, how she’s instantly recognizable to me, yet looks nothing like the Grace of today. Here, on October 2, 2010, she’s not even three months old, as she sits in my lap at a park in Los Angeles. There’s nothing like having a kid to make you […]

We’d always wanted to visit New Zealand, and vowed that we’d do it while we lived in L.A., just a non-stop flight away from Auckland. In the summer of 2009, we took our trip, and had an incredible time. I put together some words and photos here, collected many more photos here, and include this […]

After a few years of growing interest in the history and technology of the little mechanical wonder known as the photobooth, I started a website about them in 2003, and by 2005, with the help of Tim, it had become Photobooth.net, the best resource for all things photobooth on the web. Along the way, I […]

Los Angeles! Our time in the big, weird, beautiful, crazy city is well documented here on the blog. We moved in the summer of 2006, and lived in a nice little apartment in West Hollywood, almost walking distance from my work at the film archive, and in the middle of an ever-changing lineup of restaurants, […]

Not long after returning from the honeymoon, we moved to Rochester so I could begin school at the Eastman House. Rochester was a great place to spend our first year together: small, cheap, and full of plenty of stuff to do (for a year). We found a nice apartment on Park Ave., where I am […]

Honeymoon! We’re en route from Belize City to Mata Chica on Ambergris Caye on July 14, 2005, five days after our wedding. That was a pretty good year.

Taken on the evening of April 19, 2004, at Café Jacqueline in San Francisco, by my fiancée of a few hours, Aimee. I had proposed to her that afternoon (not only are we now in the era of digital photos, but also of the lifetime of this blog), and we had a reservation at this […]

As Winter Storm Juno bears down on the northeast, today’s snowy photo is fitting (though I thought it was taken as Aimee and I wandered the deserted, snow-covered streets of Boston during the great blizzard of February, 2003, a.k.a. The Presidents’ Day Storm II, but the metadata says it was taken in December of ’03. […]

2002 brought my first paid work in the field of film archives, a summer job working at the Harvard Depository in Southborough, Massachusetts, checking prints in the Harvard Film Archive collection for acetate deterioration. Here I am on May 8, documenting the fact that I was actually doing this (and that I had actually grown […]

And so, in 2001, we leave the era of the photochemical photograph, never to return. The glasses are back, and there’s a weird attempt at long sideburns, plus this pseudo turtleneck that began unraveling the day I bought it. The first digital photograph in this project, this picture was taken after midnight on the morning […]
