A visit home.
It's so cold. (Beautiful things can be so wicked.)
December 24, 2007. Chatham, Ohio.
Came home on Christmas Eve. Dad was making a sign for the church.

It was so good to hear their house fill with laughter. There hasn't been a lot of it since she died in October. (The dog keeps howling.)
March 12, 2008. Athens, Ohio.
It's such a blur. (It's all so clear.)
alright. that may be enough of the black and white wintertime nostalgia from the archives for now. a group of OU grads asked to use some of my winter series for a magazine feature, which has encouraged me to dive back into the archives and memories, and begin to re-edit. It's been refreshing to rediscover the photographs. The best thing about diving back into the archives is looking at old moments that are still working their way through my consciousness.
January 2010. Chatham, Ohio.
Homestead. It's bittercold outside.
When you left a year ago, the phone became static. I thought the snow hitting the windows was rain tapping. (There would be another 3 months of ice.)
