Sunrise, Vending Machines, Coffee & Love of Cameras
When I was young, shooting with film, I took many of these photos but threw most of them away as the years went by, something I regretted. The older I get I realize how important the little moments in life can become in our memories.

I’ve started carrying my camera with me everywhere again, something I always did pre-covid. I’m a big believer in “the best camera is the one you have with you”, but I must admit there’s something familiar and comforting about holding my “real camera.”
Anyways, I plan to start sharing more of these types of photos from my life. I may even start posting on my Instagram channel again, something I did much more pre-covid.
When I was young, shooting with film, I took many of these photos but threw most of them away as the years went by, something I regretted. The older I get, the more I realize how important the seemingly insignificant moments in life can become in our memories. Okinawa has changed so much from my first time living here in the 80s, and I wish I had more of these photos to compare.
Below is a shot I took of my Fuji X100v. You know you have a special relationship with your camera when you constantly take photos of it. I’ve owned every version of the X100 since it was released in 2011. I posted a collage of all the X100 cameras I’ve owned over the years on Instagram a while back. Link below. I’ve also always wanted a Leica. I’ve been eyeing a Leica Q2 for some time now, but they’re pricey enough to make you pause. Someday, maybe.
