Year thirty-three day twenty-six.
Welcome to Oregon.
I don’t usually write much on this blog as I am a photographer, not a writer. I tend to have an easier time expressing myself visually rather than literally, but I’m about to try my best to do the latter.
This photo was taken while in the midst of a road trip I am currently on with my boyfriend and partner in life, crime and art, Matt Dwyer. We drove from Glendale, CA to Fort Bragg, CA to our current location in Astoria, OR where we are staying with our very generous and gracious friends Shane and Amy Bugbee. Matt and I (and our two dogs, Jack and Charlie) have embarked (no pun intended) on this trip not to relax or vacation, but to create an art project via Matt’s podcast Conversations with Matt Dwyer and my photography. Along the way we have met some extremely interesting and generous people, beginning with Heather Brown of the Department of Imagination in Fort Bragg, who was kind enough to put us up in her kick ass vintage Air Stream trailer and introduced us to Madame Chinchilla and Mr G of Triangle Tattoo & Museum as well as Ruth Weiss, an extremely influential poet from the beat generation. We are so fortunate to have been able to meet and make friends with these very awesome people.
Meanwhile, in Astoria… (see next post).
