\ HOME \ 
 These are the colors of my youth  Shared with friends and lovers  They draw me back here  Where nostalgia finds me  And I learn to love more each time  This is where I discovered adventure  Uncovered hope  Dared to dream  And found my courage  Where my soul longed for the universe   Home is not where you grew up  But where you grow to find yourself

These are the colors of my youth
Shared with friends and lovers
They draw me back here
Where nostalgia finds me
And I learn to love more each time
This is where I discovered adventure
Uncovered hope
Dared to dream
And found my courage
Where my soul longed for the universe
Home is not where you grew up
But where you grow to find yourself

This weekend I received my first tintype portrait in the mail by photographer   @gilesclement  , and it was really special to open the box and hold it in my hand for the first time. I know this sounds cheesy, but I’m pretty sure I held my breath as I was opening the box just like a kid opening up a Christmas present. It made me realize how spoiled we’ve become in the digital age, and how we expect and demand things instantaneously all the time.   
  Tintype predates film and was widely used in the 1860’s and 1870’s, so it is quite a unique experience if you ever get the opportunity to have one taken of you. It is by far the most memorable photo that I’ve ever had taken of me, especially since I spend most of the time on the other side of the camera these days.   
  I’m obsessed with handmade crafts, and inspired by people like Giles that are able to make a living doing what they love, creating handcrafted goods that help create deep and meaningful experiences for us. I hope to give this portrait away as a gift one day and have it passed down from generation to generation.

“Not all those who wander are lost.” Wandering around Brooklyn never gets old. You’re guaranteed to find something beautiful and almost always find something new and exciting. I used to believe that it doesn’t matter where you are, but I think I’ve been wrong because I feel so at home here, like I truly belong. It’s hard to describe or explain the love that I feel for this place. Coming home is always exciting. Except for when I’m on the road, there’s no place I’d rather be. (at New York City)

“Pepe” by #PaoloWoods. In Haiti, second hand garments are called “Pepe” and it’s increasingly difficult to see a Haitian wearing something that has not been previously worn by an American. A t-shirt produced for Wal-Mart in the sweatshops of Port au Prince will be sported by a Texan and then returned to the sender, who, at last, will be able to wear it. Some of the shirts read “I’m in Virginia, bitch!” and “I’m not a gynecologist but I’ll have a look.” #photoville #haiti #nofilter #brooklyn (at Brooklyn Bridge Park - Pier 5)
