These are a few shots from my last trip back to the states earlier this year

I’m a little late in finally getting around to them as I’ve been hitting an inspirational lull when it comes to my normal modus operandi of black and white street- I’ve taken the down time to begin a re-work of my portfolio site, order up a set of cards (via moo cards) and branch out by experimenting further with the porta 160/mju II combo.

My need to do an artistic rethink coincided well with the arrival today of Stephen Shore’s The Nature of Photographs. I forgot I had ordered it through Phaidon about a year ago as it ended up locked in perpetual back order status until enough demand accumulated for another container of stock to land in Australia- I’ve made it about a third through and I’m liking the general format in which it presents snippets of Shore’s insights and accompanying images.
