Steven departs...


My friend and assistant Steven left today on a motorcycle journey to Alaska. Check out his blog, manmachineworld, and keep up his cross country adventure. He stopped by the studio right before he hit the freeway and I burned some film. This is a scan from the fuji instant I shot with the Fuji 680.
