Today, my girlfriend and I got some polaroid cameras and printed out some photos. I haven't printed out photos in years and I have to say that I love it. The photos also have a much more precious quality to them because they're small and you can't take as many as you want. I also got a small photo album to keep the photos in. I should have gotten one during college because all the photos I have from college are on some computer somewhere, not being appreciated.
The whole experience reminds me of when I sat for a tintype portrait with my friend Charlie. It was a special event to have that photograph taken and I want my future photos to be special also.
Our family has an old album that used to belong to my grandfather. The album has all these small black and white photos of all sorts of travels, including when he first came to New York from Holland. There's a small picture of him and his father in front of the statue of liberty. I want to be able to look back at actual photos and share those memories with my kids one day.
This is also why I keep a diary..
I'm very proud to announce the final cover of The Sorrows by M. Earl Smith. For more information about the book, check out: Blue Deco Publishing
I'm super proud to share these early mock-ups for "Little Karl" from Michelkin Publishing. M. Earl Smith and I still have to approve a final mock-up and then they'll begin printing. We have a ton of pre-orders and we'll be setting up some book signings in Philadelphia and around my home town of Ridgewood, NJ. I'm also meeting with M. on Sunday to discuss a new book that he and I will be doing. Stay tuned for details.
"Little Karl" - Available at Barnes and Noble, other retailers and as an Ebook: November 25th
